The PanaVueTM app enables you to experience and individually control an immersive live video stream with a 180° field of view delivered live to your iOS device through a Wi-FI or cellular data connection from an Altia Systems’ PanaCastTM panoramic video camera. Simple, intuitive and familiar touch screen controls allow you to pan across the video and zoom in and out. The app utilizes the built-in gyroscope to enable panning by moving your device to the left or right and vice versa. The built-in picture-in-picture window provides perspective on the region you are viewing within context of the overall frame, and can also be used to directly pan across the video frame by moving the included rectangle with touch screen finger control. By placing a finger anywhere within the window outside of the zoom rectangle, you can move it to any other location. PanaCastTM cameras have been developed by and are available from Altia Systems. If you do not have a PanaCastTM camera, the app includes a short demonstration video of the PanaCastTM interactive experience.
