Zacturn panorama terminal - highlight of the current exhibition at the Wien Museum
Vienna, 12th October 2011. The current exhibition “A Square for the City - Morzinplatz/Schwedenplatz - Projects and Perspectives” by the urban development department of Vienna is taking place at the Atrium of the Wien Museum from 5th October to 6th November 2011.
The interactive highlight of the tour is the zacturn panorama terminal. It gives both the young and the elderly the opportunity to experience the Schwedenplatz in utter detail in a virtual 3D environment.
The zacturn panorama terminal lets visitors dive into a completely new world of interactive presentation.
The 3D flat screen is mounted on a revolving stand so that visitors can move freely in the virtual environment. They can view the Schwedenplatz from any given angle. Whether they maneuver through narrow city streets or hover over the city with a bird’s eye view – everything is possible. Not only does zacturn provide visitors with a virtual tour of the Schwedenplatz, it overcomes boundaries and takes them on a sightseeing flight over the whole city of Vienna!
To ensure that city areas, for instance the one between Urania and Morzinplatz, are portrayed in the most realistic way possible, elements of architecture and landscape are textured and shaded in different manners. While the focus of the zacturn panorama terminal lies on a high level of detail and accurate true-to-scale rendering of the urban landscape, it also puts the interactive element at the centre of this great experience.
Zacturn shocks with interactive perfomance and reassures with the same robust stability of the system we are used to!
Within only six weeks raw data from the urban mapping department of Vienna (AM 41) came to life as a virtual 3D world. The zacturn panorama terminal takes visitors on a journey to other known locations as well: Museumsquartier, Donauturm, a flight over Vienna’s urban lake side Aspern as well as the Stephansplatz – all in 3D.
Product manager Dr. Wilfried Wessner was obviously impressed. “Appealing to people of all ages and bridging the gap between generations, this experience added value to the whole exhibition.”
We kindly invite those who will not have the opportunity to visit this exhibition at the Wien Musem to experience the zacturn panorama terminal at the Wiener Planungswerkstatt (Friedrich-Schmidt-Platz 9, 1010 Vienna) starting November 7th.
