There has been an increased interest of using head mounted displays (HMD) like the Oculus Rift to immerse the user into virtual reality (VR). For the immersion into VR to be complete, 3D is needed. I will be discussing various aspects of 3D panoramic images and video, the hardware setup I am using, the process I am using to get my final result, various methods of viewing 3D, the difference between what I have achieved and the ideal result. I will also present some possibilities.
Denis Gadbois‘ Presentation on Fine art photography will cover photography created in accordance with the vision of the artist as photographer. Focusing on artistic production that use panoramic photography, this presentation will cover a wide range of art photography that use panorama production techniques. I intend to create a correlation between art and 360 photography. Moreover, I will introduce notions of “interpreting experience” which should allow the photographer, through its content, to offer interpretations of the meaning surrounding him/her with a particular vision belonging either to an art practice or a design approach. This artistic expression can take the form of little planets but also can include virtual or real planted materials, subject matter. We also look at the photo essay as a technique to generate content for panorama.
Michael Kintner, CEO/Inventor at 360Heros Inc. will present 360CamMan™ 360 video file management software – the missing link in 360 video workflow. 360Heros manufactures and sells multiple 360 video 360 plug-n-play holders holding from 6 to 14 cameras and as you can imagine file and data management with 14 cameras is even more of a challenge. Especially when it comes to 3D 360 video content. On the IVRPA conference Michael will present the different holders for standard 360 video and also the new patent pending holders for 3D 360 video content.

As the technology of panoramic equipment develops, photographers are constantly trying to extend the borders and limitations.
Nick Ivanov will talk to us about a real challenge and how he is trying to master it.
Time-lapse videos have been around for years, but capturing them from an aerial platform, and embedding them into 360° panoramas is something new. Nick will talk about coming up with the idea, and the process of creating this new media.
Due to a family affair Matthias Taugwalder will not be able to join us at the conference.
Currently we are trying to find a suitable replacement for his talk, please check back later for an update.
- to be in the middle of the experience,
- to show multiple spots within a short time,
- or to make remote locations accessible.
Panoramic imagery will soon become the norm of how businesses present themselves to potential and existing customers. With this in mind, Google wants to help all small, medium size and large business get their business online with 360 degree virtual tours.
Google Maps Business View allows businesses to enhance their presence across Google with a premium quality, 360 degree virtual tour powered by Street View technology.
In this talk, Soufi Esmaeilzadeh will describe the program, explain how panoramic photographers can become certified Google partners authorized to sell Business View to local businesses in their area, and share case studies of how existing photographers in the program have built successful businesses using the platform.
Let’s face it, 360 degree video is not just a toy or a cool trend, but a real new emerging market.
The Oculus Rift buyout by Facebook is not something that happens by mistake, it happens because a huge new market is up ahead.
In this talk Alexandre Jenny will share his insight about this new market. He will also give details about all the tools that are being produced at Kolor to be able to get to a mature workflow, from hardware to recording up to the final service of publishing and hosting these immersive videos.
