Nicky Christensen – Danish Museum
“Because we're a national museum, a majority of our members are not able to physically visit on a regular basis. Through 360 video we are able to bring an immersive "VR" experience to our wide audience. From exhibit exploration to a meditative journey through our 35-acre prairie landscape and "behind the scenes" storage tours, members can feel as though they've been here. The custom headsets will be used as a perk for our membership campaign and will formally announce our 360 video gallery.”
Derek Lavigne – Whiting-Turner
“The headsets are used for various construction projects, showing VR renderings and live 360 images of project sites in all phases of our work.”
Ashley Barnas – University of Delaware
“The College of Health Sciences at the University of Delaware has a STAR Health Sciences Complex with labs and clinics that we wanted to feature in a virtual tour. A 360 video of each lab and clinic will be hosted on a website for prospective students, visitors, patients and future complex tenants.”
