Interactive Video Tours


Overview

We have developed a rapid method of capturing an indoor or outdoor space by using a portable multi-camera rig. We designed a viewer which gives a user the experience of interactively navigating through a photorealistic environment, with the ability to move forward or backward and look around in any direction. Additionally we can augment this experience by adding extra multimedia content such as spatialized audio, photographs and video textures. To this basic experience we added high dynamic range viewing to improve the ability to see details in dark or light regions and added the capability to choose between multiple paths of motion during navigation in the viewer.
