Paul Bourke is a pioneer with over 10 years’ experience at the leading edge of omnidirectional stereoscopic graphics, immersive video and large-scale tracking & display systems.

At AVRL’s November 2016 meeting Paul described how despite rapid progress by the industry, capturing high-quality 360 degree imagery and video still poses significant challenges, particularly for stereoscopic content.

Paul’s wide-ranging presentation provided a wealth of experiences gained from past projects, fascinating diversions into other cultures and continents, accessible descriptions of the theory behind 360 degree and stereo imaging and a preview of as-yet-unreleased technologies Paul is working with.

To give Paul ample opportunity to provide in-depth and comprehensive coverage, we skipped our usual post-presentation VR & AR demos by AVRL members and guests. Attendees enjoyed the opportunity to socialise, network with the AVRL community and chat to Paul.
