  "description": "<p>Virtual Reality (VR) and 360-degree video are reshaping the media<br>\nlandscape, creating a fertile business environment. In 2016 many new<br>\n360-degree cameras and VR headsets entered the consumer market.<br>\nDistribution platforms are being established and new production studios<br>\nare emerging. VR is a hot topic in research and industry, and many new<br>\nand exciting interactive VR content and experiences are emerging. The<br>\nbiggest gap we see in these experiences is the lack of social and shared<br>\naspects of VR usage, as today&rsquo;s VR applications tend to be an isolated<br>\nendeavour. In this paper, we present TogetherVR, a web-based<br>\nframework for the creation and evaluation of social and shared VR<br>\nexperiences in which users can communicate with a high degree of<br>\npresence and in photo-realistic video quality. We further elaborate on three<br>\nmulti-user VR cases: watching TV together in VR, social collaboration in<br>\nVR, and social VR conferencing in a mixed reality setting.</p>",
