Multimedia mashup tool for spherical displays

Created for use in our GeoDome® immersive environments, Worldviewer® is a tool from The Elumenati that allows our clients to easily author interactive presentations while incorporating up-to-date multimedia content from a variety of sources. The WorldComposer® content authoring platform is easy to learn and simple to use, allowing educators to produce fully interactive experiences based on their own expertise, without requiring programming skills.

Clients can build docent-guided presentations, user-driven experiences, and recorded scripts using movies, still images, and high definition video created for both standard and spherical (panoramic) media. Worldviewer simplifies the process of providing audiences with a fresh, continuously integrated interactive experience.
