360 video is a powerful way to transport your audience into another world. The immersive experience has the power to affect change in the mind of the viewer while educating and fostering a deeper appreciation of the sea.
A 360 video or panorama provides the perfect snapshot of an underwater habitat. These snapshots are ideal for counting species with high accuracy and comparing the effects of management over time. Because capturing the whole 360 spheres reduces the workload underwater, a larger area can be covered during one dive, and the data analysed later in the lab.
Many governmental and educational organisations, as well as sports teams, have discovered the effectiveness of immersive technologies like VR and 360 for training. Underwater video recorded by the Boxfish 360 can be used for diver training in many commercial, military, or scientific situations. 360 video provides a very cost-effective way of VR, as very few elements have to be digitally created.
Attract more patrons with immersive glimpses of the stunning views that await them, offer virtual tours for less adventurous guests or those not able to enjoy a dive in person. Or simply offer a compelling preview to those struggling to choose a dive site. With the Boxfish 360, both can be created with high quality and cost-effectively.
Every medium offers a new opportunity for storytelling, VR/360 is especially suited for a first-person perspective that puts the audience literally into the (dive) boots of a character. Your story in 360 videos allows them to experience a visual sensation otherwise not available to them—be it about nature, adventure, or just fun.
