During the Disney Parks and Resorts presentation at D23, Tom Fitzgerald, Imagineer in charge of the new Epcot changes, discussed a brand new movie they are filming for the China pavilion in the World Showcase.
He went on to describe the new technology they are using to do this. We are familiar with the “Circle-Vision 360” that Walt Disney himself loved, and we see currently used in a few of the World Showcase attractions. They have created a new camera and are going to take that a step further.
Well now taking a cue from Walt, and the original Circle Vision, we’re creating a next generation digital camera system, much as we did for Soarin’ and we’re going to be taking this rig on the road to film our very first “seamless” Circle Vision show for the China pavilion.
They showed what the camera/rig looks like.
They compared it to the technology used for Soarin’ Around the World, I’m excited to see what they do with it.
What do you think about the new technology? Do you like Circle-Vision 360? Comment and let us know!
