This is the first time that the AKB48 group will perform a live performance of a theater performance in VR.
For AKB48 Group's VR live distribution of theater performances, there is a channel where you can enjoy VR images from each theater and an "AKB48 Group Channel" where you can enjoy VR images from all theaters. With "AKB48 Group Channel", it is possible to switch to VR video of each theater such as "AKB48 Theater" to "SKE48 Theater".
VR cameras will be permanently installed at the front of the stage of each theater, and at the upper and lower sides. The VR camera in front of the stage is installed before the front row seats in the theater, so users can watch powerful VR images. Fans who have not been able to see the theater before, due to distance restrictions, will be able to support members at the forefront of the audience.
In the future, AKS and SoftBank will work together to provide VR video content related to the AKB48 group using the 5th generation mobile communication system (5G).
