Abstract: 

The opportunities of applying virtual reality technologies to the presentation of cultural events (musical concerts, city excursions, theatrical performances, and others) in virtual reality devices are described in this work. Challenges that appear during shooting video 360° and their solutions are analyzed. The experience of shooting more than 50 different videos is generalized. The example of realization interactivity in video 360° connected to the virtual reconstruction is described.
