iMoveTM Spherical Video System (SVS-2000)
The SVS-2000 Spherical Video System includes a specialized 6-lens digital camera and laptop computer system. A predecessor system, the SVS-1000, was designed for and sold to the government for security related applications. Spherical video provides the ultimate viewing experience. Not only can the viewer look all around in 360 degrees, but also up and down. The added field of view creates a feeling of total immersion, not available in other panoramic formats.
Capturing Spherical Video
The iMove SVS-2000 is an all-digital, 6-lens camera that captures images in all directions including up and down. In playback, users are able to move forward and backward through the video, at any point looking in any direction. As part of the iMove Multiview Interactive Video family, spherical video also supports embedded hotspots, which can link to data, audio, Web URL’s, or branches to other video segments.
Spherical Video can be delivered on CD-ROM, DVD, or via the Internet. It can be viewed on any PC running the Windows operating system. The SVS-2000 camera is designed for field applications. The three-pound camera is connected to a ruggedized laptop computer system. Removable disk storage can hold up to 2 hours of content, and the system includes a belt battery pack. During postproduction, the images are seamed and compressed into panoramic video frames, which offer the user full navigational control.
Spherical Video content can be distributed over the Internet through iMove’s hosting and distribution service. This service includes iMove’s RedCarpetTM streaming support which allows a user to watch and interact with the video while it is being streamed from the Internet.
The iMove SVS-2000 is available for sale for about $80,000. Commercial users can alternatively choose between several leasing options through iMove’s alliance with GE Leasing Solutions, and apply on line for a credit decision
