PanoTwins talk will showcase the benefits of reprojecting equirectangular panoramas for static presentations. Will present “simple” reprojections and also two–step reprojections using a series of transformations. An overview will be given about the different available tools to reproject panoramas. Numerous “real life” examples will be shown, including the original equirectangular image and possible reprojections.

 

Markus Matern and Jürgen Matern talk is a part of Day 2 of Palmela 2011 — The Conference and is scheduled to take place June 2, 2011, in the Cine–Teatro São João, Palmela.
