360°Panorama and IBC2014

IBC2014: Visit us in Hall 11, Booth 11.E75!

IBC2014 is around the corner and we invite you cordially to stop by to have a closer look at our exciting gear. Our indieGS2K, the world's smallest 2k-RAW camera, can often be seen on major feature film setsRecent productions include Ron Howard's "In The Heart of The Sea", Danny Boyle's new British police drama series "BABYLON", and the John Le Carré adaptation "Our Kind Of Traitor".

In this newsletter I want to present some of the fascinating 360° Panorama-Film work, that has been done with our cameras over the past years.
One of the most advanced 360° systems worldwide is without doubt the OMNICAM of Fraunhofer's Heinrich Hertz Institute in Berlin. Each system is based on 10 units of our indieGS2Ks and an HHI proprietary Real-Time-Stitching-Engine, that provides realtime panorama video of previously unseen quality. The OMNICAM paves the way for interactive immersive applications in a resolution of 10.000x2000 pixel with realtime playback. Other unique aspects of the system are its light weight and small handheld size as well as the mirror-array, that allows shots even in small spaces virtually without any parallax errors.

The OMNICAM was recently used to film the FIFA Soccer World Cup Finals in Brasil and we are proud that our cameras were part of this high profile production. Read the entire story in the HHI and FIFA press releases here (HHI Press ReleaseFIFA Press Release).

For pictures from other high-profile productions in 2013 including the innovative immersive-concert project LIVESTAGE, where the OMNICAM is used with our indieGS2Ks, visit HHI´s project resumee page.

To find out more about the OMNICAM visit us at booth 11.E75, check out HHI´s homepage or talk to HHI's Christian Weissig at the Fraunhofer HHI IBC2014 booth 8.B80 in Hall 8.

One of the most popular purpose built 360°-Panorama-Cinemas in Central Europe, attracting hundreds and thousands of visitors per day during peak seasons, is Austria's Alpine National Park Center Hohe Tauern Mittersill. Hohe Tauern is a National Park comprised of a vast and unique glacial landscape of unspoiled natural wonder.

In this 360° cinema you can watch a stunning, immersive 360°-Film that was produced over the course of more than one year and features breathtaking views of the four seasons in one of the most beautiful Alpine National Parks in the world.

A special camera-rig was conceived in a joint effort by production company Science Vision, mechanical specialist Solid Camera and camera manufacturer Indiecam. Indiecam provided eight indiePOV cameras, the RAW-Recording infrastructure, the multi-camera-control system, and special development and service facilities.

This unparalleled film project communicates the experience of the protected plant and animal life previously only accessible to seasoned climbers. With the help of this cinema visitors gain access to inaccessible summits, swim with trout in alpine streams, feel the ice cracking and water dripping in glacier caves, among other scenes.

The film is projected in with nine HD projectors and is housed in an innovative purpose built circular cinema building of 16 metres in diametre. AV-installation was planned and carried out by by pro-media.

Indiecam is proud to be part of this project. To learn more about the production watch the trailer of the cinema above and the making of video below or visit the homepage of Nationalparkzentrum Mittersill
