    "DIVE into World Heritage 3D" Filmed with Five Panasonic Integrated Twin-lens 3D Camera Recorders

"DIVE into World Heritage 3D" is a system that multi-records and displays world heritage sites as 3D images with a visual angle of 150° across 5 sources (10 sources left and right) by synchronizing the time codes of five Panasonic integrated twin-lens 3D camera recorders (AG-3DA1) mounted in a fan shape with an open angle of 30°.
During display, the playback synchronizes the five sources in the large 3D display of the five Panasonic cameras mounted at the same angle as the open angle set during filming. In consideration of the display frame width also, the stereo design for each 3D image displays the same stereo sense, and naturally continuous images. Each camera films by recording the left and right aspects in high definition, and synchronizing the time codes of a total of ten sources. Further, the audio also creates a video experience space with a sense of being there by incorporating 5.1ch surround sound.

*Panasonic, as a part of company wide efforts of contributing to the sustainable development, has signed an agreement with the UNESCO World Heritage Centre. Together, through conservation of world heritage sites and education for the next generation, we aim to realize sustainable development for a better future.
