On the guest list for today’s episode of Tickets is Andre Lorenceau.
Andre is co-founder and CEO of LiveLikeVR, a New York-based startup focused on delivering live sports broadcasting in virtual reality.
LiveLike’s best known products are its customised VR apps that it provides to sports broadcasters around the globe. The app experience lets a user select different camera angles, sit in a virtual suite at the stadium, and view either live or pre-produced content.
Recorded just before LiveLike’s new $9.6m Series B fundraising round was announced, in this conversation Andre offers his predictions for the VR industry over the coming years, explains how the company got started, and discusses why they’ve focused in on broadcasters rather than going direct to consumers.
