The State of VR

Sarah Hill

VR is expected to disrupt mobile by 2020, so the state of VR changes on a daily basis. Many VR technology companies are in beta, so it can be difficult for media companies to keep up unless they know creators on the inside who are working with these beta tools on a daily basis. We are those creators. StoryUP is in the first wave of the Hololens and one of the first media companies to create stories for the AR device. This recap is a rapid-fire rundown of VR and emergent AR technologies. We will tell you what’s now, what’s possible, what’s coming, what others are doing, and what newsrooms and brand studios need to do to prepare for the upcoming arrival of 12.5 million headsets by the end of 2016.

CEO and Chief Storyteller for StoryUP VR, a Virtual Reality Journalism startup. A former interactive news anchor, Sarah's team pioneered the use of video chat during a live broadcast and was the first person to use a Google Hangout during a television newscast. Sarah has more than 20 years in the broadcasting industry. She is a 12 time Mid-America Emmy, National Sigma Delta Chi, NAB Service to America & National Edward R. Murrow award winner for feature reporting. Sarah likes to create with what she calls "Human Media", the transition of communication from a text based to face to face environment. When she's not in a video chat, she's creating stories in virtual reality around the world. Most recently, her team allowed viewers to step inside the story in Zambia to better understand a group of people who have to crawl on the ground because they lack mobility. StoryUP's program, Honor Everywhere, allows terminally ill and aging Veterans to see their memorial in Virtual Reality. Sarah is the mother of two teenagers, three if you count her husband. She's a professional jokester. Don't eat her powdered donuts.
