(ReCode) Hulu’s former SVP Eugene Wei has been employed by Oculus as its new head of video since November, although his new role was not confirmed until the end of February. Wei was most recently head of product at Flipboard, and also spent seven years at Amazon beginning in the late ’90s.
Wei’s video team is in charge of building the platform at Oculus that houses VR and 360 degree content from other creators. Wei and his team focus extensively on 360 degree video, which Facebook is trying to push mainstream.
