And, was also “instrumental in the launch of the collegiate conference’s seven linear networks.”

For those that are new to Voke VR, they are a Silicon Valley based company focused on “building the next generation of fan engagement for live sports entertainment.” To do so, they provide content to users in full stereoscopic virtual reality video, in both 180 and 360 degrees. This content is then available to be viewed either through a VR headset or on your mobile device.
