BBC makes 360-degree video of the LHC at CERN




The BBC has the Large Hadron Collider at CERN on the Franco-Swiss border posed in a very different light to film in 360 degrees in the LHC maintenance tube itself. The project was part of the BBC’s technology program Click.

But the BBC filming not only in the tube, something the human dimension initially still happen, as evidenced by the support of the camera. If the film arrives at the Compact Muon Solenoid, or CMS detector, 360-degree video is suddenly extra impressive. The viewer can now indeed ronkijken itself without a director or cameraman determines the viewing direction. The CMS detector is 15 meters in diameter and 21 meters long, something that often happens in poor pictures.

The video in order to make use of the BBC six GoPro-action cameras, one on each side of the cube. One of the most difficult problems facing the creators ran into, it was good then stitching together the shots by the parallax issue exists. This occurs because each camera lens has a slightly different place where a subject enters the picture. Think of an arm for just one lens will be slightly different from where the arm on the other lens enters again. Those images must then be tied together. Despite the hard work to get out all the mistakes, the parallax effect was not to brush away everywhere.

The video is available through various channels, but for most YouTube will be used friendliest, whether in 4K 50fps and possibly using a Cardboard or other virtual reality glasses.
