TX help capture high quality imagery of Exeter Shopping Centre

Using SphereVision Systems, TX have helped capture high quality imagery of the Exeter Shopping Centre to aid in the multi-million pound redevelopment.

Working alongside Chartered Land Surveyors M J Rees, Arithmetica captured a mixture of both 360 degree panoramic and handheld images, which were then linked with original survey drawings. The combination of traditional and high tech surveys will allow the end client to review and compare the condition of specific areas of the high profile development project, pre- and post-construction.

"Having agreed a project brief with our client, we then approached Arithmetica to discuss the integration of high definition imagery with more traditional survey plans," commented Sarah Hurley of Bristol based M J Rees. "The inclusion of both 360 degree imagery and handheld stills, registered to the original plans, was seen as crucial to the brief in order to ensure quick and easy navigation of complex drawings, and allow for comparison of the site pre- and post-construction."

MJ Rees was commissioned to survey an area pinpointed for development within the Guildhall Shopping Centre. The area, part of the Grade 2 listed shopping arcade, included former offices and retail units as well as ornate facades and other architectural features, all at ground, first and second floor levels. Working alongside M J Rees, Arithmetica captured more than 100 360 degree panoramic images supplemented with more than 700 high resolution SLR static images. Using SphereVision Project Builder, they delivered an interactive dilapidation record of the site to M J Rees who, using the surveyed position of the camera systems, referenced the high definition imagery to the project drawings and produced a schedule of images for use alongside the plans.

The Guildhall Shopping centre is located in the heart of Exeter's historic quarter. The £7 million revamp by owners Aviva Investors will see the reintroduction of shop fronts which were blanked out in the 1970s, the creation of terraced seating around the 12th century Saint Pancras Church, as well as additional retail and leisure space, improved walkways and toilets. The plans approved by Exeter City Council were described by Councillors as 'beautiful architecture' and 'a great improvement'.

Transmission TX & SphereVision Reveal Henry VIII’s Excesses in Stunning 360 Degrees...

Forming part of the Historic Royal Palaces Tudors on Tour event, the 360 degree interactive cinema experience explores the working kitchens, wine cellar and fine decorations of Hampton Court, inviting the audience to gather evidence of the King’s excessive spending for the treasury.

Created by specialist production company TX, using a SphereVision 360 degree recording and production system, the fifteen minute film was first debuted at Tatton Park in Cheshire, where nearly 4,000 children immersed themselves in the digital 360 degree pop up cinema from Igloo Vision on the first day alone. Tudors on Tour, including the SphereVision film, will return to the Tower of London from 23-26 July 2015.

“Working in 360 degrees allows us to create an environment that really interacts with the audience, in this case immersing them in Henry VIII’s extravagant Hampton Court,” said Tracey Manasseh, a specialist 360 producer working with SphereVision. “From the moment they step into the Palace’s courtyard until they outwit the King’s guards to make their escape, the audience is captivated and engaged by the 360 degree scene.”

The 360 degree representation of Hampton Court was filmed by TX using a SphereVision recording system in just three days on location at Hampton Court. The opening scenes feature a lone Tudor nobleman who conspiratorially invites the audience to collect evidence of Henry VIII’s excessive spending. The film transports watchers to the Palace’s kitchens where they turn meat on a spit and help a struggling kitchen hand identify exotic ingredients such as lemons, apricots and peppercorns, before whisking them into the King’s palatial wine cellars. Aimed at four-six-year-olds, the interactive experience continues with the audience learning how to bow, curtsy and even dance, before ending with the nobleman testing them on what evidence they have uncovered.

“The SphereVision 360 video recording, production and playback system is easy to use, from onsite filming to the end user sitting at his computer or, in this case, watching in a pop up cinema,” said Manasseh. “It has enormous potential for a range of applications beyond the tourism and heritage markets, including security, site management, risk assessment as well as health and safety management and training.”

360° Video of Chertsey Floods

Large parts of the Thames Valley have been seriously affected by the recent poor weather with houses, shops and roads being left flooded and inaccessible.
The need for Insurers, Environment & Government Agencies plus First Responders to gain on the ground awareness of the extent of the damage and to assess and archive the extent of damage to properties has never been higher.
Using Spherevision systems, we took to the waters around Chertsey to capture test footage of what has proved to be a disaster for many homeowners.
