The cathedral church of St. Stephen in Vienna was spatially measured with more than 20 billion laser points. At this unique level of detail, they correspond to a data volume of almost 400 gigabytes and form the basis of the translucent St. Stephen’s Cathedral. This innovative approach offers spectators an interactive journey through the translucent sacred building in stereoscopic 8K.
The novel insights through the layers of the cathedral church were created as part of the European R&D project Immersify, which is dedicated to developing the next generation of immersive media. Over three years, the project partners have created content for highly immersive environments using various techniques and developing tools for processing the produced data.
