3D NEWS> 3D TECHNOLOGY

Panasonic have developed a panoramic capture system comprising of five 3D cameras and have partnered with UNESCO to bring immersive experiences of heritage sites to people.

The system shoots images using five AG-3DA1 cameras linked together and includes small high performance VCRs tethered to the cameras.

The UNESCO World Heritage Centre and Panasonic have formed a strategic partnership for the purpose of preserving world heritage and seven sites have been photographed with the system so far.

The images are shown on high-definition plasma screens as seen in the video below. Panasonic is also considering the possibility of using its panorama imaging system for future Olympic games, as well as producing the images of artworks housed in museums.

"DIVE into World Heritage 3D,” was first exhibited by Panasonic at Digital Content EXPO 2012.

The Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz-Institut has also developed a system to capture and project HD video panoramas.  Using a mirror-based multi-camera rig, Omnicam uses between five and twelve cameras (2D) to deliver up to 360 degree visuals for immersive projection, ideal for events such as sport.

    I think they would get much better results if they shoot these World Heritage Sites in IMAX-3D. But I admire their efforts and ingenuity.
