Planar 4k Displays Featured in VR Experience at TEDxPortland
A sold-out crowd at TEDxPortland on April 15th got a virtual experience of enjoying a standing ovation from the TEDx stage in an experience enabled by Panogs, Dot-Dot-Dash, and Planar, a Leyard company. The day began with a 4k capture of 360-degree video and audio of the full auditorium. Throughout the day, visitors used HMD (head mounted device) VR headsets and headphones to experience what has been captured. An output of the HMD was fed in 4k to a Planar QE Series 98” display for the gathered visitors queuing up for the experience. Visitors commented that the experience was so realistic. Their cheeks would flush and they would fill compelled to react to the crowd that was on their feet and cheering in the 360-degree video. TEDx is an independently organized event under the license of TED and 2017 was the 7th sold-out event of this event being held in Portland, Oregon.
