This variable interactive presentation platform provides users with a zoom function that enables them to examine high-resolution images down to the tiniest detail.
Graphic material is fed into the Gigapixel Viewer—for instance, a high-resolution photo of a city, a landscape, a work of art, or any other richly detailed object. Due to the viewer’s extremely high resolution, the image can be viewed as a whole, but there is also a zoom feature that reveals the minutest details captured in the shot.
Plus, “artificial” levels can be inserted so that, at certain zoom levels, information and surprising, not-immediately-apparent interrelationships are displayed at specific points in the image. This material can be texts, images, videos or animated sequences with added explanatory value. The primary user benefits are the ability to independently explore jumbo-format panoramas, and the impressive visual power of the image.
