As a technology reporter for The Wall Street Journal, Andy Jordan
regularly chronicles the stories that can be found when people and technology
come together. In this episode, he asks "What if streaming video could be shot
in 360 degrees?" He finds the answer when he takes Tech Diary to a Red Bull
big jump to check it out. "The mouse moves where the spinal column can't,"
says Andy Jordan, describing a "mondo geodesic streaming video dome camera the
size of a grapefruit with 11 lenses."
To learn about Immersive technology, Andy met some Immersive team members
that are part of the GeoImmersive(TM) collection team providing 360 degree
imagery for interactive mapping. He also got into the action at a Red Bull
event in NYC's Central Park, even getting to play with the Dodeca(R) 2360, or
as Andy calls it, the "grapefruit cam."
"This profile showcases the portability and flexibility of Immersive
Video," stated Myles M. McGovern, president and CEO of Immersive Media Corp.
"IMC's platform creates compelling branded entertainment with its interactive,
Immersive Video that consumers watch again and again because they are able to
see different angles and perspectives every time they view it."
