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.
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.

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.

Be prepared for the very best.
2014 saw a big step forward in the world of virtual tour creation with the release of Panotour Pro 2.0 from Kolor. HTML5 has become a standard feature, with virtual tours compatible with any modern device (smartphones, tablets, computers).
The goal of this new version is to offer more features, more customization while keeping the application easy to use, without the need of programming.
The Livepano plugin offers a new experience within the virtual tours, by displaying video zones above the 360° photographic content.

Matthew Mascheri, President of Dome3D, will present an introduction to the immersive world of fulldome content creation. Domes theaters present audiences with an unparalleled immersive screen, and while primarily used in an educational setting, domes (both portable and fixed) are beginning to be used as an artistic and commercial venue.

Post-processing starts with preproduction
To produce a professional 360º video piece follows similar steps as a traditional film production, and deviates from it in new and to be explored ways. Joergen Geerds from Freedom360 will outline the different steps in his presentation: from script writing to storyboarding, selecting the right equipment to shoot a scene and capture good sound, directing and pre-visualisation, stitching the raw material into a good source for editing in Adobe Premiere or AfterEffects to follow the story outline, as well as preparing the final edit for the various media or screens it will be deployed to.
At our conferences we always strive to present you outstanding projects and to foster the exchange of ideas and inspiration with the people working at the leading edge of 360° imaging and filming.
Today it is IVRPA’s great pleasure to announce that award winning filmmaker and multimedia producer Thomas Wallner will be with us in Las Vegas and give us a talk about his latest project and his views on the future of 360° video.
