CE ECSC 360 Virtual Reality Video

Missed out on CE ECSC? Never fear! Feel like you were part of the action with Jpixx’s 360 video coverage of the surfing event. Elon alums Amy & Chelsea took our brand-new V.360 camera out for a spin at the 53rd Annual Coastal Edge East Coast Surfing Championships to try out this cutting-edge virtual reality technology. Here’s a sampling of our test footage:

What’s a 360 video, you ask? It’s created using a specialized camera that can film from all directions at once. Our camera points at a mirror that reflects a 360 view of the world, giving us an omnidirectional view of what’s happening. It’s a new type of filmmaking that we are excited to explore!

It’s easy and fun to watch our 360 video on your computer or smartphone. On the computer, you can click and drag in the YouTube player to move the video left and right. On your phone, simply turn the phone in the direction you want to go to view more of the video. (It’s best if you sit in a chair that spins, or stand in one place and rotate.)

But the real magic happens when you put the video into Google Cardboard mode. With a special headset viewer, the video becomes an immersive experience where it feels like you’re inside the video. It’s like you’re really there! This is the best way to view a 360 video like ours, so if you have a viewer, break it out!

Otherwise, here’s where to get one.

Here’s another 360 video to check out from San Diego Comic-Con:

And here’s one focused on the thrill of horror films:

Long Overdue ECSC Recap

It’s been about two months since the start of ECSC 2014!  Here’s our excuse for not updating sooner!  If you missed ECSC or simply want to reminisce, you can still check out all the spectacular photos over at


For the fourth year in a row, ECSC360 coverage was powered by Jpixx.  With the help of many talented photographers, designers, and volunteers, we pulled off another great year of event coverage and an awesome photo-op at the 360 tent. A big THANK YOU to all who made it happen, including those of you who participated in getting your scape shot!

You swam!


You surfed!


And you soared!


Hope you had as much fun as the crew did at the tent!  See you next year!

ECSC360 Contest & Event Details

The Coastal Edge East Coast Surfing Championship (ECSC) kicks off next week for its 52nd year.  While this event primarily focuses on surfing competitions, you will also find volleyball, skateboarding, skimboarding, a 5k run, live music, food, drinks, and contests.  Come out for a good time August 17-24th and look for us at the ECSC360 tent!

Coverage of the event begins August 17 but don’t miss a great opportunity to be the face of ECSC360!  If you enjoy being in front of a camera and have an interest in surfing, then check out the Face of ECSC360 emcee contest.  Two lucky winners will get an opportunity to walk the oceanfront interviewing athletes, sponsors and attendees during the week of the event.  Click the photo below for more information on how to enter.


As a digital media sponsor of ECSC, ECSC360‘s hits its fourth year in a row being powered by Jpixx.  Jpixx and its fleet of freelancers, designers, and volunteers strive to create a giant impact in the media for the event.  Taking on ECSC is no small feat but it’s such a blast working at one of the most popular events in the area during the summer!

Event coverage will be displayed across seven screens at the oceanfront, so you won’t miss a thing.  We also have a four-sided LED screen that is reportedly the largest floating LED screen you will ever see.  I’ve been told that it is held up by hot air balloons! You’ll have to see it to believe it (or prove me wrong)!

If you’re interested in volunteering at the Jpixx tent and are available any time between Wednesday-Sunday (August 20-24) please contact for more information. We hope to see you there!
