Re: Has anyone used the Ricoh Theta?

Hello Jim,

Thanks for sharing your experiences and examples of the Theta, it is very useful information.
Imo this device has a future as soon as most of the cons you mentioned has been solved, at least resolution, noise and CA.

Re: 3D panorama examples for 3D TV

. . . . Copy/paste the webkit code, alter the name and path to the xml files and you're ready to go . . . . Sorry but I was wrong. As it turns out the source code of the html files of my 3D panoramas are changed severe by the WebKit engine of the webbrowser. These changes are making it impossible t...

Re: A new HTML5 fullscreen code

....So, for the moment the best solution would be to pop up a new full screen window filled with the pano, I assume. If you really want to show panos full screen on iPad right know a workaround is using the (payed) iCab Mobile browser for iOS. Besides tons of useful other options with this browser ...

Re: Tour not resizing

You could try to remove the top line:

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/loose.dtd">

Often removing this line helps to solve scaling issues.

Re: Mobile HTML screen size and settings 03/2012

Hello Martin, Thanks for your testing and suggestions for the HTML5 pano tile size for iPads. Regarding the max. tilesize you can show on a iPad1 I have a comment, with iOS 4.x a pano with a tile size of 1024 px will crash on many machines if some background apps are running and available memory is ...

Re: Mobile HTML screen size and settings 03/2012

...I going to test this later to see at what point the iPad crashes. However I suspect that it will display quite large images, but will the download time it be worth it.... Martin, On iPad1/2 the sweet spot is 1440 px for tiles with iOS5.x, it could be very well that the iPad 3 has a sweet spot fo...

Re: HTML5 Cube Face Sizes for iDevices etc

........I think the preview.jpg is just that .. it looks like a smaller version of the panorama image.. like a thumbnail. We use it for a link picture to open the html 5 panorama...... Indeed the preview.jpeg can serve as a thumbnail but I think the main function of it is to limit the loading time ...

Re: The positive impact of iOS 5 on the quality of iPad pano

Hello Dave, The optimum tile resolution for a given screen depends on the fov, it makes a lot of difference to have a fov of 60 or 75 degree so calculating the optimum tile size is in practice only usefull when the fov is always the same. Also the zoom-in factor makes a huge difference, a lot of peo...

Re: The positive impact of iOS 5 on the quality of iPad pano

Hello Dave, I think the size of the equi is in my case of no importance because they are large enough to create panos of 2880 px so the input size is defenitely sufficient to create even much larger tiles then 1900 px. Btw, the series of test panos for the iPad where created from the same equi I use...

Re: The positive impact of iOS 5 on the quality of iPad pano

Why would tile size affect image quality of output like that????? I don't know, I can only guess what is going on. When testing in steps (960-1100-1300-1500-1700-1900) I found out that the image quality slowly improves with each larger tilesize, this improvement suddenly stopped with 1500 px. After...
