Now you may recall back last September we featured the famous Red Square of Moscow as the partial backdrop to a recording by RT from the final night of the 2016 Spasskaya Tower International Military Music Festival. We’re back in Russia today for military related video in 360 degrees courtesy of the state broadcaster, only this time we’re dropping the whole ‘music’ thing.
Instead we’ve RT’s coverage of yesterday’s 2017 Moscow’s Victory Day (V-Day) parade, a celebration of the anniversary of the surrender of Nazi Germany in 1945. Victory In Europe Day (VE-Day) is actually on May 8th based on when the surrender was signed but thanks to time-zones it was already on the 9th in the Russian states and surrounding countries. Hence the celebration in Russia was yesterday and not Monday.
In any case RT have produced three 360 degree videos. The first covers a column of military vehicles as they move down to Red Square, the second is mounted on the front of a vehicle as it rolls through Red Square and the third follows the Swifts and Russian Knights aerobatic teams as they practiced their moves over Moscow on the way to Red Square. Three for the price of one today on Life In 360°.
VRFocus will be back with another example (or three) this Friday at the usual time.
