From the Spire — Creating the 1WTC Time Magazine Gigapixel Panorama

The news and especially the images recently spread all over the web. At our Las Vegas 2014 conference we will bring you  a first hand talk from the guys who actually managed to get that terrific image from the top of One World Trade Center. Learn how they closed the deal, managed the many challenges and which hardware tweaks they used.

After 12 years of anticipation, the tallest skyscraper in the Western Hemisphere was ready for its closeup. 10,000 workers lifted 104 floors, gave new life to an international symbol and created one spectacular view. When the moment was right Gigapan & Time Magazine partnered together with the goal of creating an interactive panorama with a viewpoint suspended 10’ out from the spire.  Panographers Michael Franz & Gavin Farrell will present an in-depth and intimate look into what went into the making of the final breathtaking image.
