LionVision VR is a virtual reality subscription service that allows the user to access Penn State Athletics in previously impossible ways. First, LionVision VR utilizes virtual reality technology to provide the participant with the experience of being virtually part of Penn State Athletics' most iconic experiences using incredible camera and computer technologies to create cutting-edge immersive video. Second, LionVision VR will combine this technology with access to people, locations and experiences that were never previously available to the public. The only thing better than Lion Vision VR's immersive experience is being there in person. I've never tried virtual reality, what is it like?
Virtual reality and LionVision VR is high level technology that allows the user to be immersed in the experience as if they were there. Virtual reality is not High Definition TV. Instead, it is an immersive experience that imitates and gives the visual and audio perspective of real life experiences through depth perception, movement, sounds and spatial relationships similar to actually being there. Does audio matter in my LionVision VR experience?
Audio is an important part of the experience. You should utilize your earbuds, headset or other quality speaker options for the best experience. Your phone's built in audio is acceptable but not ideal for the full experience. Do you have a list of the experiences I will get to see?
Intended experiences include Football Game Day (behind the scenes, pre-game, in-game, and post-game) including some of Penn State's best game day traditions as well as pre-game, in-game and post-game exclusive content for men's and women's basketball, men's hockey, women's volleyball, wrestling and other sports where unique and VR appropriate content can be captured. If we can put a camera there, we'll consider it. We intend to release video content multiple times every week. Is LionVision VR hard to operate?
LionVision VR is easy to operate and requires no special training. But should you need assistance you can call 1-800-Nittany or contact our virtual reality experts at EON Sports VR via phone 323-813-6687 (M-F, 9 AM - 6 PM CST) or email email@example.com. Can I view LionVision VR without a headset?
Yes you can, but it will not be a virtual reality experience and many of the VR effects will be lost. To solve this dilemma, during our initial ordering period we will provide you with a complementary headset that will allow you to access the full experience of LionVision VR right from your phone. How many experiences will be part of my subscription?
You will receive a minimum of 30 virtual experiences during your subscription. In addition, we will release non-virtual reality video on an almost daily basis through the LionVision VR app, providing hundreds of experiences throughout the subscription. LionVision VR will be a must-see daily experience for the subscriber. How do I get a subscription?
