Shepperton Studios, 24 February 2015 – A 360 degree video recording system from Arithmetica has been used to document an award winning heritage railway and popular tourist attraction in Wales. The Spherevision recording system, operated by specialist production company TX, used 360 degree spherical cameras mounted in various positions on a railway locomotive travelling the 25 mile course of the Welsh Highland Railway. During three days of filming multiple views of the journey from Porthmadog to Caernarfon were captured and then processed using Spherevision software. The resulting interactive DVD is now available to purchase from Amazon or as a download as an app.
“The Welsh Highland Railway offered an unrivalled opportunity to demonstrate the capability of the Spherevision 360 video recording and playback solution,” commented Tracey Manasseh a specialist 360 producer working with Spherevision. “With some of the most beautiful sites in the UK the multifaceted experience allows the user to view the journey from every possible aspect. From riding the footplate to sitting trackside, the interactive DVD allows you jump to any party of the journey; zooming in and out and panning around the captured scenes as if you were there.”
