At 2:38 PM -0400 2000-10-28, Olsen, Erik crafted carefully: >I am still a novice VR shooter yet I am trying to develop an understanding >of how the format might be used in actual journalistic circumstances. To brainstorm on this thought... I think a mouse - savvy journalist could pull up a web page with a QTVR embedded in it and pan around, describing the events that took place in that location (or what ever the story is). Even between the time the event took place and broadcast telling about it, one could use the source files to put hotspots on it that linked to stuff (I'm searching for ideas here). One question I have is, how would it be seen by your broadcast equipment. Would the journalists' screen be viewed on a big screen and that screen monitored with a camera, or would the video signal from her Mac (she's using a Mac of course ;-) go directly to the broadcast equipment, thus our screens. Do we want to see just the panning image or do we want a split screen to see her engaged in the navigation of the pano, or should the split screen be part pano and part info brought up via the hotspots. In any case I think there's a big advantage of using panos in news broadcasts, since I imagine it requires little or no work to put it on the web once the broadcast is done. Let us know when you plan your first showing....so I can go someplace that has a TV to watch it! ;-)
