  • Content for broadcast and other media applications

iSTAR’s speed and simplicity provides easy access to 360 HDR imaging, perfect for providing a full digital immersive view of an environment in seconds. The resulting panoramic images can either be viewed independently, linked together via hot‐spots to create a ‘virtual tour’ (similar to Google StreetView) or used within other third party application software.
