DIVE into World Heritage 3D with Panasonic
Panasonic is bringing us a virtual world tour in 5 times Full HD. The stereoscopic system is titled "DIVE into World Heritage 3D," and it was demonstrated at Digital Content EXPO 2012. This system put five 3-D cameras to work to shoot, and the display was via five HD plasma panels.
Panasonic's "DIVE into World Heritage 3D" is in a strategic partnership agreement with the UNESCO World Heritage Centre to promote the conservation of UNESCO World Heritage sites and to educate children about the world. The system has been set up in Paris, at UNESCO's World Heritage Center, at Panasonic centers in Tokyo and Osaka, and at exhibitions to be staged around the world.

A word from Panasonic
Masaru Kojima, manager of Panasonic's Content Planning Center said : "Imaging technology is progressing every day. Today we're using full high-definition, but in the future pixel counts are likely to grow, as well as the size of the displays themselves."
Panasonic's technology imaging edge that marks this system is its AG-3DA1 twin-lens 3D camera, an integrated HD 3-D solid-state camcorder which Panasonic described as a "step closer to natural human vision."
