Panoramas have been fascinating people for more than 200 years, yet recent advances make them more immersive than ever.
In my talk, I will start by briefly reviewing history from the pre-computer era, and then describe the main steps of digital panorama stitching, which has found its way into most phones and consumer 360° cameras.
I will also present our new approach called “MegaParallax” that enables people to casually capture and view high-quality 360° panoramas with motion parallax and different views for different viewpoints – the most immersive panoramas to date.
