Can’t argue with most of that COdey, here’s a thought. Do you think MelodyVR are possibly creating the content in stereoscopic? Some of their engineers do have previous experience. Fit me this content would be far better in 180 stereoscopic and hooked in with Oculus Venues this would enhance the true experience of the onstage staging and props. The Broadway one that was mentioned in an earlier post. I think this non VR.
I believe she’s still in LA so would be the LA Melody studio if anything. I don’t think anyone would be travelling from the frying pan into the fire. I read she was spotted again a couple of days ago at the gym. She’s been working on a new album for sure especially now she’s single again and on the open market. There was rumours a few years ago that she was heavily invested in MelodyVR so would be the perfect fit for an album debut...
I think the next step for MelodyVR is turning their performances into true 3D rather than being a flat 2D 360 experience but completely understand streaming technology would need to catch up for this to happen. Hence the reason most VR 3D is filmed in 180. Completely understand about the John Legend, for me you still need the visuals even if they are simple. AR will bring a whole new dimensions to live gigs as the artists will have the freedom to explore the possibilities of back staging and props. Mixed reality will be from a whole new dimension. I for one will be first in the queue for the Apple Glasses, it will be well cool to get stats on footballers etc, my brain has a hard enough job switching off with all the connected tech! Soon we will be cyborgs controller by Elon Musk lol! It’s going to be really interesting to see the possibilities and as per usual Apple will be high end with their offering.
I think the thing with concerts / artists it’s the staging that really helps to make the performance as well as the artist. When you take that away you lose the magic. Lighting, digital backdrops and effects, smoke etc... Some acts I’ve seen are more floor shows these days. When you extract the artist from this it just wouldn’t do it for me. AR will be massive. Especially in education and sales. Not 100% where it fits into music. I remember watching the EE performance of Bastille with AR stuff but it was in addition to the live acts. I think the AR glasses will be more seeing additional things. AR enhances the user’s experience in the real world rather than replacing it.
Hi Rondar, you’re talking a lots of specifics which needs more time for production and has to be in special studios with the correct hardware and things like green screens etc it would be good but not as immersive as full 360 VR..I would imagine if anyone would do that it would be Apple themselves after recently purchasing NextVR but I don’t think this is something MelodyVR would consider as all they’re eggs are in the VR basket. Possibly things could change in the future but we’re a good few years before this tech would get adopted. Now is the time for VR main stream adoption... it’s been holding us back but they’ve hopefully found a work around with mobile / mobile with the melody VR viewer...
That would be amazing Watching2 and is certainly the way to go. You’d need to have some battery pack to achieve this in normal glasses. The best option in the future I would imagine would be an implant or some sort of Google’s that take in your full viewing field almost like safety goggles. I can’t wait to see the tech coming out over the next decade.
Hi Henry, Apples glasses will be augmented reality (AR) while we are virtual reality (VR). AR will project stuff onto real life.. AR possibilities are crazy stuff like having a gym instructor in your own room and being able to see how a couch would look in you house etc... Really cool tech but couldn’t run MelodyVR. As technologies progresses there will be mixed reality content headsets that will have both AR and VR. It’s been reported that Apple are working on a VR headset but as per usual very secretive. Cheers
Could you imagine lol " resources to capitalize on current innovations"
“This added liquidity will help bolster our already strong balance sheet, providing us with extra cushion to withstand any scenario well into 2021, as well as ample resources to capitalize on current innovations and ramp business up quickly when the time is right,” said Michael Rapino, President and Chief Executive Officer of Live Nation Entertainment.
I don't think it's a rehash Codey. They say it will be broadcast from their studios. ' With the full line up still to be announced, expect an incredible show from some of the hottest US and UK talent, broadcast from MelodyVR's brand new, specially designed content studios, located in both Los Angeles and in London, at the legendary Alexandra Palace.'
and TBH... America is the perfect market for this festival. It will be interesting to see what timezones they will work in...
Great news about Wireless and it certainly will be interesting. Sounds a mixture of some of last years content with new live performances and interviews in the studios. This will be a great showcase for virtual festivals. Do you think this will be FOC to attend with the money coming from advertising or do you think this will be a paid for event?
Sleep at night
I honesty don't know AM sleeps at night. It doesn't matter if you're a day late, week late, 2 weeks late, then you're still late. This seems to be a continuous cycle. Yes, things happen out-with your control but if you're telling people xx date and keep continually missing xx...you think he would would learnt from his previous let downs. We all know an RNS is impending, I would be very surprised if it was in LA again. If they were doing things in a sensible manner then it will be either UK or NYC as these are more an advertisement for 'Right here we are guys, who wants some... Welcome to the new norm.'. It certainly a share you need A LOT OF PATIENCE FOR. It's like a roller coaster of a share partly to do with the board / team. Yes, sure they have a long term goal but it would be much better if the share went at least even remotely in the direction it should be going instead of 2 steps forward 2 steps back. TBH we should be well above the 6's by now breaking the 5.5 resistance. It's great more people are thinking we are getting primed for sale but I don't think this would happen while we probably still have a relatively low user base and their offering hasn't been fully loaded. Lets be honest, with the things they have done over the last month (which some are great) we should be getting more recognition and a higher share price but due to the weak marketing efforts over the last month we are still currently lagging behind where we should be and this is effecting the share price. We need to break the share price out of the day traders dream market or the release news spike then nothing market. Thats great some people are willing to wait 20 years or so for a results. I invest in a share to make money for mine / my children's futures and we need to start seeing progression. A good way to starting with this is simply by sticking to your timeslines in an RNS statement.
Right come-on MelodyVR, lets get this superb lineup released today and get back to marching forward. Please also give it some time to gain traction and don't give us a great lineup and tell us we are going live tomorrow.
100% Patebo. If they integrate to this and Venues then it will help (in the interim) but MelodyVR will need to do this on the app regardless so to take in mobile users that use the VR Viewer MelodyVR are currently trialing. I would imagine they are waiting to get as many broadcasting / streaming glitches as they can ironed out before bring on the social as this would add far much more to the bandwidth and have more technicalities. It would be great to see them appearing sooner rather than later...
You can cast to a TV from your phone. Apple TV do screen mirroring from an Apple device and there are also free screen mirroring apps you can buy to cast to Google Chromecast. Some TV's already have a cast app in them.
Hi ORLM, couldn’t stay up so never managed to see this mornings show. Do you think it could have been some sort of dress rehearsal you saw? I would imagine that everything would be tested so they know which camera angles to switch to and the lighting would all be tested? It’s the only thing I could think of as to what you saw??
Hi 50rrell. Yes this is common for Apple After a takeover. They also pulled the Apps. This is so they can rework them with the Apple sauce. lol Trevor, that’s a statement and a half. You do realise you can have more than one big player. It’s certainly something to keep an eye on but I wouldn’t say finish MelodyVR off as we have a big start it’s just a case of making sure it stays that way. Sure they have more resources and money. We currently have a niche and you can sometimes get better results concentrating on that one thing.
