> How do they do that ?Looks like an old behere oneshot lens
I've also seen people make them by using other one shot lens's with a
camcorder pointed at them, or a fast shooting still camera, and then
using vrhotwires to turn it into a quicktime mov but don't really know
Presumably the bbc use some sort of behere provided software to unwrap
the donuts? Don't know if they still make it, on the other hand they
do seem to be focusing more on videoconferencing these days so perhaps
it is a modern version of the discontinued oneshot lens system.
- Yup I'd definitly say behere as they even use their realplayer plugin.
No mention of it on the behere website, I wonder if you can still buy
the software or similar? Anyone know?
Seen much better quality by people with other systems in quicktime
mind, but much bigger files too. The london eye tour is great but you
can't really see much, same with the ballons.
- Oh and this I saw the other day and quite liked too, a bit higher
quality but with a 10,000 dollar 360 video camera
- there are a windows media player version too?

> there are a windows media player version too?Of the previously posted bbc and vrhotwires examples? No I don't think
so. Of behere technology in general a quick google sugests they
provided an activex plugin for windows media
http://www.panoramic-imaging.com/360video/samples.htm the rockinham
motor speedway example with two viewing windows is quite cool.
That said how much time anyone should invest in an appartantly
discontinued techology I don't know. Behere may become like vrml, it
was exciting in 1999 but now its practically impossible to view.
I can see the quicktime high quality stuff would be cool on a cdrom or
kiosk display though. On the internet mind I think full screen vr
would be so huge I think it would swamp most websites.
- I have been making interactive panos for the past year or so with pretty good success. It looks to me like the 360 video interactive panos are really starting to make some noise and I want to give it a try.
Does anyone have any advice on how to get started without mortgaging the house?
All suggestions are welcome.
Thanks for your help,

the only thing is the cameras have a very low 640x480 video mode
you could contact elphel.com to make you one (witch I am currently doing cost apox US$2,500)
Not to pollute the NG with a sales pitch, but our camera Lucy captures
panoramic video using a 1080P sensor pointed at a curved mirror, which, when
dewarped, resolves to just over 500 vertical lines of resolution. You can
see some sample footage here:
And a version of the same video played back in Videowarp from EyeSee360:
We¹re in final testing of our panoramic video player; once we¹ve completed
it we¹ll be posting this footage and more on our website at kogeto.com.

I am getting back into the game after raising our kids and I noticed a lot of competition is doing 360 Video and charging nothing to do all of this. It looks like I need to reinvest in automated equipment to keep up and keep things quicker for low end real estate. Is anyone doing 360 video for real estate and for high end work? What equipment and software do you use? I am a cannon shooter. Thanks.

generally low, not only due to bandwidth restrictions (you need a 4k
Video for a 640x480 viewport), but also because the devices are still
crappy (dynamic range is very low). Parallax errors are inevitable due
to multi-camera-rigs. And what is the point to have the ability to look
sideways or even back when the camera moves forward? A still spherical
panorama with good resolution is far better IMHO, where I can look at
However, there is very little traffic on this list. Most users have

- The other day, I went to see, in a museum, a 360 video of 8 or 10 historical museum. When I went there, I was already a little bit skeptical about the quality of the video. It was a big deception. Fortunately, the soundtrack supporting the video was interesting which compensate the lack of visual excitement.Because you can add the same soundtrack to a 360° panorama, I agree with Erik, a photo better serve the message.
- The Samsung Gear 360 is an easy inexpensive way to dip your toe in the water, the current version does 4K video and 30mp stills and the quality is as good as you can get without spending thousands of dollars, and is now only $189 on Amazon now. Ideally you need a Samsung phone to run the app, but it can work without as long as you have a Windows PC to process the files. The new 2017 version is due out soon and that will work with an Apple iPhone too, the 4K video is slightly enhanced but the stills drop to 15mp, rumor has it the price will be $250 - $300.
