How has Live Planet been able to solve the
hard challenges of VR and 360° video production and distribution?

By drawing upon the accomplishments, and vision of Halsey Minor, Internet pioneer and Live Planet’s founder.

With deep experience in technology, media, and cloud platforms as CNET founder, producer of its television programs, and co-founder of Salesforce.com, Halsey has assembled a world-class team of experts to bring his passions and experiences together. The goal: to transform the world of video toward a more compelling, controllable future for consumers everywhere.

Background

In 1997, Halsey spun off technology developed by CNET to Vignette, a web publishing software company, Vignette was one of the most successful IPOs of the first tech boom, reaching a market capitalization of $10.7 billion in 2000. Not only is Halsey a technology pioneer, he also produced five television shows on major television networks. Minor also found E! Online, not to mention gave Ryan Seacreast his big break.

Halsey also provided the seed funding for trailblazing music service Rhapsody in 1998. In 1999, Halsey invested $19.5 million in Salesforce.com, forseeing the emerging cloud-computing industry that Salesforce led with its “No Software” slogan.

"Halsey hasn’t simply built a revolutionary camera and platform, he’s creating an industry."

Co-founder of Fox Network and former President of Quincy Jones Entertainment
