Mediaworks Uses Latest Technology for Video/Photo Virtual Reality Projects

Mediaworks photographers are using a Nikon digital camera, a specialized panoramic tripod head, and computer software to create 180 degree and 360 degree digital images. The first panoramic project was a panoramic virtual reality tour of the UC Davis Medical Center's Birthing Center. The Video & Audio Group worked closely with the Art & Photography Group to produce QuickTime virtual reality and streaming movies, which are available. QuickTime virtual reality digital photography was also used to capture a full front-to-back interior view of construction progress of the Mondavi Center concert hall. Other potential locations for panoramic projects include the Quad, Shields Library, new construction sites, and athletic events.
