Bringing The Frontlines to your screen

New initiative uses extended reality to boost conflict reporting,
Using a combination of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) — both of which fall under the umbrella of “extended reality,” or XR — this June we launched Frontline in Focus XR. A recipient of the Google News Initiative’s Middle East, Turkey and Africa Innovation Challenge last year, Frontline in Focus XR uses 360° video to transport journalists from around the world to war zones and other hard-to-reach settings to help them report stories and conduct interviews. Our team of local journalists assists with the work along the way.

It’s not just journalists working on a story who can take advantage of this initiative. Humanitarian workers interested in visiting refugee camps, or archeologists wanting to visit a heritage site, are just a couple examples of who may be able to use the technology.
