Now when you think about virtual reality a lot of people first think about gaming. But, I actually think that video is gonna be even more engaging in a lot of ways. So these are, are spherical videos. You can move around in it and you can change your viewing angle, and that's possible because the videos are, are filmed on up to 24 different cameras at once. Now this is a new and much more immersive type of content, it's not something you'd just consume passively. You're actually interacting with it, and you feel like your there.
