Video on Demand…High Demand
If there’s one thing we can say about our tech advancements, it’s that it has changed our audio-visual media experiences. Where a mere two decades ago our media experiences consisted of sitting in front of a television set or radio consuming our limited supply of one channel of content at a time during fixed times, we now have virtually everything we want, when we want it. Creating an impactful media experience is a constant challenge of being able to surmount a perpetually-raising bar, and on the cutting edge is 360 projection. For those who are serious about making their presentations memorable, 360 projection is the standout means in a world surrounded by screens.
360 Projection: The Basics
When you think of a planetarium, you picture a large dome with a projection the creates a stunning illusion of looking at the sky. This is the basic principle behind 360 projection. 360 projection uses very high 8K resolution to create the illusion of being surrounded by virtually anything.
Videos used for projection are shot for this purpose with specialized cameras. The videos are then presented using a series of projection rigs set up at different angles and are blended together to create a panorama under either an inflated or a geodesic dome.
The domes are customizable, and can be built across a range of dimensions, depending on the size of the intended audience and the function, ranging from 10 feet for small gatherings to 90 feet for seating hundreds of attendees.
360 Projection: Why Is It Worth Your Time?
It’s great that 360 projection can be used for a variety of purposes and is suited for several industries.
Corporate Presentations: An increasing number of companies are using 360 projection for holding corporate conferences for brand or product presentations. Tech companies in particular can get the full benefit from 360 projection to demonstrate some of the audio and visual capabilities of today’s cutting-edge devices.
Education: Thanks to the increasing availability of advanced technology, 360 projection isn’t limited to planetariums and museums anymore. Nor is 360 projection limited to remaining in a fixed position in a single building. In particular, wildlife scenes can be recreated in stunning clarity with shooting that can create a sense of closing distance between the audience and the surrounding nature.
Meditation: The immersion potential of 360 projection can be used for therapeutic purposes. Large meditation sessions can be held using projections of soothing atmospheres reminiscent of gentle forest scenes or rainfalls on water.
Special Events & Parties: As 360 projection becomes more portable and accessible, consumers are resorting more and more to projection presentations to mark special occasions such as weddings or large dinners.
