Vimeo launches 360-degree video, giving VR ways to make money

The online video service yesterday announced * a href="https://join.vimeo.com/360/?utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=GOOGLE&utm_content=US_Search_Brand_General_Beta_EN*Account+-+BMM&utm_term=%2Baccount+%2Bvimeo&utm_campaign=1923&gclid=Cj0KEQiAl4TGBRDhgvmikdHPsdABEiQAtBcc8GfmvTvtWfcNpK9d299dAkNnNmIzaIUxI5e5zx0B6gwaAiHc8P8HAQ&gclsrc=aw.ds&dclid=CKOSk92oydICFeQR0wodGyUG7A" target="_blank" *Vimeo 360, its new platform that allows any to upload panoramic content that can be hosted in up to 8K. Available to Vimeo PRO and Business members, 360 creators can choose rent, buy or subscription options, set their price and distribution region, and take home 90% of the revenue after transaction costs.

The service supports direct uploads from Adobe Premiere Pro and Sony Vegas, and the videos themselves are viewable through the Vimeo app on GearVR, Zeiss VR One, and Daydream headsets.

Vimeo has introduced 360 videos, following in the rather large footsteps of Facebook and YouTube. Integrations with additional VR devices, such as the HTC Vive as Oculus Rift, are expected to be announced later on.

Vimeo will also launch its 360 Video School dedicated to educational resources for creators learning 360 production, from camera selection to shooting and editing. And mobile videos can even be saved in HD for offline viewing. However, the video-sharing company insisted that it's not about being the first to launch support for 360 videos, but it's about doing this right for its users.

It also supports setting the user's field of view and initial direction of the viewer, and includes a compass to orient viewers.

"Vimeo has always been committed to preserving and delivering the highest quality video and our move into 360 expands our premium video technology solution to 360 filmmakers". "Their stories now benefit from our advanced video compression and player customization tools, along with streaming and offline viewing in up to 4K".

Vimeo has a reputation of being a platform designed with "serious" video creators in mind, and it shows in how they're rolling out 360 video controls to those uploading video.

Other platforms are also touting 360 video.
