GeoImmersive Imagery Disrupts the Norm

Myles McGovern, President & CEO, Immersive Media

Date: Wednesday, May 30
Time: 2:30pm - 2:45pm
Location: Imperial Ballroom

Location intelligence is being revolutionized by a disruptive technology transforming the way geospatial content is created, captured, and displayed.

With omnidirectional video capturing all directions at once and tied to GPS data (resulting in GeoImmersive video), audiences are placed in the middle of the environment and within context so nothing is missed.

They now control the point of view. By seeing all angles at all times, blindspots are eliminated and you can easily locate where you have been and where you are going. People are getting it all and conventional viewing behaviors are falling to the wayside.

GeoImmersive video is changing perspectives and taking visual mapping interaction to a whole new level while providing a unique approach to business processes, enterprise integration, and revenue generation.

Place tourists right on site and allow them to investigate their destination or tour the attraction from every angle. Let prospective customers examine properties and virtually inspect venues before investing the time in an onsite visit. Enable business travelers to drive the route from the airport to the hotel prior to landing. And that’s just a start.

The GeoImmersive impact is already being felt in a variety of arenas including urban planning, oil and gas resource management, and emergency response and first responder operations.

Showcase GeoImmersive video in a variety of ways from web streaming to disk-based distribution to intranets. Create new communities as a result of this innovative medium and inspire viewers to see it all. Imagine the possibilities of spherically capturing, sharing,and displaying environments from any angle.
