Using Periscope for your brand gives your audience real-time access to important moments and behind-the-scenes content. With 360 video on Periscope, you can broadcast your world in 360 degrees so that viewers can see what you’re looking at as well as everything around you. People watching your broadcast can change the point of view by moving their phone or tapping and scrolling around the screen — all while watching live.
Ready to submerge viewers in your video? Follow these three tips to get started with Periscope 360.
Hold the phone and camera in your hand
For 360 videos it's best to avoid using a selfie stick or tripod as they can create distance between you and your audience. For the best results, try holding the camera out in front of you, about three quarters arm length and slightly below head height. This will give viewers the sense that they are there with you. When showing viewers something of interest, slowly move your whole arm and keep the mobile device screen facing you.
