360VR in Bermuda

23 Jun 2017
Richard Gladwell from Sail-World NZ met ARL CEO Ian Taylor aboard the ferry back to Hamilton, Bermuda at the end of a day's America's Cup racing. Putting on the Samsung Gear headset Ian was carrying, Richard watched a 3D Video clip of Emirates Team New Zealand's Louis Vuitton Semi-Final race against Land Rover BAR. The application is the latest development from ARL's sports division Virtual Eye, whose tracking and 3D graphics for broadcast TV has been extended into a multitude of platforms and devices from mobile phones to PC's and smart TV's.
It provides a stunning 360 view of what it is like to sail aboard an AC50, sitting in the centre of the wingsailed catamaran close to the aft crossbeam. The 360VR camera pack consists of eight GoPro's - with one looking up, two looking down and five covering a 360degree horizontal radius - and was 3D printed at ARL's Dunedin offices.
