YouTube will play host to virtual reality coverage of the US Republican and Democratic National Conventions, it has announced.
YouTube said that, just like in 2012, it will be the official live stream provider of both convetions. However, this year a number of creators and news organisations will use new tools including mobile live streaming and Jump VR cameras to broadcast on YouTube.
“We believe that access to more information can help everyone participate in the political process and we look forward to the YouTube community’s lively discussion as we prepare to elect our next president,” said YouTube News’ Brandon Feldman.
The Republican National Convention starts on July 18 in Cleveland, Ohio, and the Democratic National Convention starts on July 25 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
