HD View 

What is HD View?

HD View is the camera for the web. Its goal is to create the best picture given (a) a source with high resolution, arbitrary dynamic range, any field of view & color gamut; (b) the user’s interaction; and (c) the display being used.

How do I create HD View content?

Microsoft Image Composite Editor (ICE) can now stitch your images and output directly to HD View or the new platform independent HD View SL.  You can also use our Photoshop plugin or the hdmake command-line utility.
