High resolution panoramic images for Bitexco Sky Deck Touch Screens    

The client

Bitexco Financial Tower is a skyscraper in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, owned by Bitexco Group, a Vietnamese company. With 68 floors above ground and three basements, the building has a height of 262.5 metres (861 ft), make it become the 124th tallest building in the world.

Visitors will enjoy stunning 360-degree views of the cityscape and the Saigon River. Destined to be the highlight of any trip to Vietnam, visitors can experience a "top-of-the-world" feeling and get a closer look at the spectacular sight by the binocular stands.

The idea:
Bitexco Group marketing decided to enhance Sky Deck visiting experience by installing six large HP Touch Smart Screens with high resolution, zoomable panoramic images running on it so that viewers would see the city with street level zoom regardless of the weather. Pop-up windows will give extra information on the landmarks of Saigon.

Based on the brief of the creative agency DRAFTFCB in Ho Chi Minh City six high resolution panoramic images were created from six positions outside of the building with enough overlap an the highest possible vertical field of view so that the viewers can see as many details as possible of the city from the Sky Deck.

With new fast internet connections Virtual Reality Panoramas has a large advantage in the tourist industry and in many other areas.
As a dokumentary of cultural heritage VR Photography is an excellent media which within a much smaller download than videos can give you a full view of a church or an ancient temple.
No other media can give you the feeling of being at the place like VR photos. And the ultimate feeling comes when you view them in Fullscreen >>>
