Over at Vidcon in California, YouTube launched a new 180-degree video format that’s designed to help users create 3D content. It’s called VR180 and it allows creators to focus on just what’s in front of them while they film, while enough content is captured to create an immersive virtual reality experience.

They’re currently working with several camera manufacturers to design devices that are build for VR180 from the ground up. The cameras will be just as easy to use as traditional models and they’ll be available for similar pricing. They’re also opening up a VR180 certification program and Z CAM was announced as one of their first partners.

This new format lets you use Google’s Daydream, Cardboard, or PlayStation VR to watch immersive 3D videos that allow you to look around at your virtual surroundings. By making these cameras easy to use and affordable, it will allow YouTubers big and small to jump into the VR scene.
