Entertainment with Head-Mounted Displays: Enhancing the Viewer Experience

Abstract [en]

In this thesis the main point was to see if you could enhance the spectator experience of a live event with a head-mounted display and eventually change the way we look at TV. This study was made with both a literature study, and interviews with users. During the interviews that were made, of sport and music events, it was shown that people were willing to use the technology in their homes but will not substitute the TV as long as the quality of the display in the device does not increase. Sports was the most common named event that people would watch with a head-mounted display, to get a more immersive experience than what you get at home today. It was clear what users wanted to control the cameras themselves while watching live events, so they could get the sense of feeling of being there.
