SPi-V demo gallery
Welcome to the new SPi-V demo gallery!
The demos on this page showcase the features of the licensable version of the SPi-V engine. Everything you see in the first section of demos is specified in SPi-V XML files; the panoramic scenes with enhanced effects, interactivity and user interfaces, as well as many other cool features. Like the fullscreen gallery, the demos will fill your browser window, but display will remain very smooth thanks to SPi-V hardware acceleration.
To view these panoramas you will need the Macromedia Shockwave plugin and a recent video card (32 Mb Video RAM required).
Adaptive Dynamic RangeTwo 3rd party Adaptive Dynamic Range scenes. Panoramic images courtesy Mark D. Fink and Greg Downing.
Dune tourTwo node tour showcasing a toolbar and branding elements. Notice the smooth transparencies.
Hirshhorn TourA more elaborate tour consisting of 7 nodes, a floorplan with compasses, etc. The works.
The SPi-V engine was designed to offer the best experience and set of features for panoramic imaging, but the SPi-V engine can be extended beyond this core functionality.
These extensions are often one-offs, specifically tailored for certain content. Some of the features will trickle into the core of SPi-V as it develops to future versions.
Space Needle, SeattleHovering outside Seattle's main landmark. Combines a panoramic background with realtime 3d graphics.
Splitscreen view from the Euromast, RotterdamA combination of two panoramic images taken in summer and winter time.
Cubic reprojectionThis extension projects the interactive panorama back onto six cubic faces, in realtime.
The following demos are part of the legacy of SPi-V; these are some of the original demos that started SPi-V as it is now. They contain some features that are not yet available in the current licensable version of SPi-V (such as animated elements and 3d objects). Most of these features will trickle into the new SPi-V as it develops to future versions. If you are interested in using these features now, contact us.
The legacy demos open in a popup window.
