Imagineear to Launch Interactive 360 Multimedia Experience
Imagineear is pleased to announce the launch of TourBuilder™ 3.0, the London-based multimedia company’s app-building framework, designed specifically for use with its own hand-held multimedia players.
TourBuilder™, conceived and directed by Imagineear’s Tech Director, Eric van der Hoeven, is a highly flexible and adaptive app framework that provides on the single hand-held device all aspects of the multimedia tour. In version 3.0 TourBuilder™ goes much further, bundling the following additional modules:
- TB360Dynamic™, which provides on the player screen a window into a 360 x 360 spherical space, with dynamic streetview-like navigation and multimedia content hotspots
- ‘Near me’ lists and navigation generated by Bluetooth LE beacons
- ‘Pinch & zoom’ image control, with multimedia content hotspots
Eric van der Hoeven commented: “Just as audio has been augmented by full multimedia in the world around us, so our static flat screen images are giving way to fully immersive, 360 x 360 exploration ‘spaces’. There is no reason that the onsite multimedia experience should not follow suit, so we have added streetview-like navigation and dynamic multimedia hotspots, and will offer this as alternative navigation alongside 2D maps, lists, tiles and the numeric keypad”.
Andrew Nugée, Imagineear CEO, added: “We set out to develop innovative and valuable technology solutions, and have delivered seven iterations of our hardware technology in just 5 years. We have the signal advantage of building both the software and the hardware ourselves, which means we can optimise each for the other. TourBuilder™ 3.0 is the latest manifestation of this philosophy, and I very much welcome this next step forward for Imagineear”.
