LOS ANGELES, June 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Livit, the world's first mobile live virtual reality (VR) platform, announced today that Marty Corwin has joined its team as Director of Global Sports, as the full‑service content streaming, hosting and monetization Visual Media Network claims its stake in the sports industry.
Marty has over 30 years of broadcasting experience, previously serving as a producer, director, production manager and technician/engineer for companies such as Top Rank Boxing, ESPN, Viacom, DirecTV, FOX, FIFA, Paramount Stations Group, CBS Network, HBO, Showtime, Don King Productions and UFC.
"Joining the Livit team is a thrilling and exciting new opportunity for me," said Marty Corwin, Director of Global Sports at Livit. "As the broadcasting industry starts to see more sporting events introduce live-streaming VR capabilities, Livit provides audiences with the perfect avenue to experience creative and immersive content that puts them right in the action.

In April of this year, Marty became the first producer to shoot a major pay-per-view event in VR during the recent Pacquiao fight against Timothy Bradley.
