London, UK, June 16, 2015 — You may not smell the exhaust of the race cars or feel the stadium rumble as points flash onto the scoreboard, but the unprecedented ability to experience a live broadcast event in 360-degree from any angle promises to change the viewer experience forever. Thanks to ImmerVision’s expertise in 360-degree optic technology and C360 Technologies extensive experience in 360-degree live broadcast camera systems and event capturing; this single panomorph lens system is quickly heading to broadcasters, event promoters, and content-providers worldwide, promising to outdate current systems overnight.
The breakthrough is made possible using ImmerVision’s panomorph super-wide-angle lens technology. The 6K-quality lens captures 360-degree views without panning, stitching or blind spots. This lens certified ImmerVision Enables, The 360-degree Video Standard, already well known in the security industry, enables users to view events from any angle, watch multiple views at once on the same screen, and share an immersive experience across multiple platforms and devices.
Broadcasters, for the first time, can CREATE immersive moments where an unlimited number of viewers on any platform— from desktops to mobile devices— can SHARE & EXPERIENCE live 360-degree events from any angle, at any time.
