Description:


    Panoscope 360° is a panoramic viewer that displays a full 360-degree cylindrical image from a single video or data channel. A donut-shaped rear projection screen is placed horizontally above a conic reflector. From within the installation, visitors see a virtual cylindrical image obtained by reflexion.

    The installation is designed to simplify both production and presentation of panoramic video programs. It is particularly appropriate for interactive content, where visitors are invited to navigate a space and manipulate elements within it. At SIGGRAPH 2000, Panoscope 360° features Space by Number, the first public presentation of an interactive video program in which visitors are invited to explore a territory by calling numbers displayed in the image.
