In this zone Ericsson outlines thought and technology leadership by demonstrating our vision of how the consumer experience will change with the advent of 360 and VR content,  provoking discussion of how this will realistically augment the 4K HDR broadcast experience in the home, delivering an enhanced immersive experience to the viewer.
