Watch the pilots
Have you ever watched a 360° or omnidirectional video? Are you curious to experience this on a tablet or with VR goggles (also known as Head Mounted Displays (HMDs)? Have a look at the content we’ve created for the ImmersiaTV project!
The ImmersiaTV project consists of three different production pilots. For each pilot, omnidirectional videos are being created, and they can be watched simultaneously on VR goggles, on a tablet and/or on a traditional TV-set or a computer. This means that you can use your tablet or VR goggles to experience with 360° views in the videos, while you are also watching a normal video on your TV or computer screen. Currently, the first and second pilot are finished, so you can watch their contents via our website!
Who can watch the pilots?
Everybody is welcome to watch these immersive contents! The only requirement is that you have a computer and an Android smartphone OR an Android tablet. If you want to use VR goggles to have a real immersive experience, you of course also need these.
- The first video experience is a documentary and follows the daily life of David, a young Portuguese athlete who is pursuing his dream of becoming a successful football player. Watch it here.
- The second video experience focuses on a live sports event: a cyclocross race. Watch the race from different points on the track (even from locations where the audience is not allowed to be!) and experience the feeling of standing in the crowd. Watch it here.
- The third video experience is an evolved version of a documentary, which is based on a mystery and fiction narrative (‘whodunit’ scenario). The documentary introduces novel interactive storytelling and exploration modes to allow users to look for clues to solve a crime. Watch it here.
- The fourth video experience focuses on a musical performance: an opera. Watch the opera from different viewpoints, being able to dynamically switch between different cameras placed at different parts of the theatre, and experience with spatial audio. Watch it here.
After watching the content, you can fill in a short questionnaire and let us know what you liked (and didn’t like) about the videos and the experience itself, so we can keep on creating better immersive experiences.
