Q: What is a Portal Experience?
An augmented reality portal is a full-sized virtual doorway that leads into an immersive video.
In true space on their mobile device, the user will tap on the floor and the doorway will appear with the video playing beyond it. The user can walk up to the door and into the 360 sphere projecting the video. The user can turn around and view in any direction, and if they turn around they will see the same doorway still there - leading back into the real world.
Q: What do I need to make my own portal experience?
All you need to upload is an immersive video. We do all the rest!
Q: What video projections can I use, and in what format?
For now, we support only 360 equirectangular, monoscopic. We are currently planning to support fisheye, stereoscopic, and 180. Stay tuned!
Q: How many videos can I upload?
One video per experience. But you can create as many experiences as you’d like.
Q: What 2D video resolutions are supported?
(This question is pending.)
Q: What are the requirements for optimal streaming performance?
We recommend a 4G LTE network connection or a Wi-Fi access point with few users, such as one in your home or a small café. A congested network degrades performance.
The mission and vision of Envrmnt is to ride the coming wave of 5G technology. Get ready for some amazing things!
