Recently, the IEEE membership, Innovation Institute of Technology, University of Southern California ( the ICT ) research and development of advanced prototype equipment department head Dr. Todd Richmond accepted the C114 China Communication Network interview, to share with us his live for VR / broadcast technology development and views. He believes that although the Olympic Games is the first time using VR technology to broadcast large sporting events, but due to the current VR consumer market is not yet mature, the Rio Olympic Games will not be a turning point in the development of VR technology.
