A spectacular technology to promote the canton

The Tourist Board of the Canton of Vaud has been wanting to offer 3-D and 360° content for a while. Thanks to technological advances in recent years and the easy integration of 3-D and 360° films in the main social networks, the time was ripe to take this step.

To do so, OTV commissioned NVP3D (Nicolet Video 3-D Productions), a leading Vaudois company in the field of relief-image videos, to create two 3-D and 360° films as well as a virtual tour of the canton of Vaud.


Photo prise à Glacier 3000

The film crew captured the most iconic landscapes of the canton of Vaud between July and November 2019 with a drone of a size of 1.7 metres that was equipped with a stabiliser and a 360° camera with 6 lenses. The result: very high resolution (8K) images providing an above-average realistic view of the captured landscapes.

OTV has also acquired a virtual reality headset to show films at live meetings and demonstrations in its promotion markets.

This kind of video and technology equipment provides an ultra-immersive experience that gains immediate support and turns out to be excellent promotional material.
