The 3Sixty 

What is the 3Sixty?

The 3Sixty is a room in the Ron Cooke Hub with a square floor, full-wall projections onto all four sides, 32 loudspeakers, and computer control.

More specifically, it has 4 wide-screen data projectors each projecting at a resolution of 1920x1200 onto 8 metre diagonal screens, a 28.4 surround sound system, all controlled by a Windows 7 based high-performance workstation.

The 3Sixty can be used for high-impact presentations, lectures, seminars, meetings, testing and simulation of various kinds. It is available for internal and external use.

Videos 

These are created using post-production tools such as Adobe Premiere of Adobe AfterEffects. However, you can use any standard video postproduction package, provided it can render the 64:10 aspect ratio of the 3Sixty. Ideally it should render at 7680 x 1200 pixels so that the full resolution of the 3Sixty is achieved. You can produce sound using any audio rendering package.
