A player for the 360° 3D video

We value our customers’ preference not to reveal projects we have done for them in public marketing materials. So there are no names and direct links on the applications we have done, only description of functionality, expertise, and technologies.

Customer

French technological company focused on people practicing different sport activities.

Business goal

Preparing to release a new innovative video camera on the market, the customer charged Noveo with development of a 3D player to play a panoramic video. The player was later used in other applications created by Noveo for the customer’s promotional purposes.

The distinguishing feature of this 360° video is that it is made simultaneously by several cameras and creates that way an impression of real presence of the viewer in the movie. Making such a video, users can share their achievements in sports showing all details as if viewers were real time onlookers.

Project scope

The player’s functionality includes the following features:

  • watch the 360° video;
  • navigate within the video using the mouse (in PC app) or finger and gyroscope (for iOS app);
  • zoom inside the video.

Technologies:

  • OpenGL ES
  • AVFoundation
  • Google Toolbox
  • FFmpeg library
  • AudioQueue
