GoPano.com is now live!

After almost ten months of development, the EyeSee360 web team is proud to announce the launch of the first 360 degree video sharing site, GoPano.com. We hope that you'll enjoy using the site as much as we've enjoyed making it. GoPano.com is designed to be a space to view panoramic videos and share them with the world. We've focused on making the site immersive and streamlined; users can easily upload, embed, and discuss videos.

Although the site was specifically developed for use the GoPano product line and the GoPano App, we want GoPano.com to be a nexus for all panoramic video content. We've worked to make the site compatible with other optics, and will be adding more projections such as Equiangular in future releases. You can upload any panoramic movie file through our website interface, and GoPano.com will analyze the video and select the best fitting panoramic geometry.

We'd like to thank the Kickstarter community for helping us with the testing and development of GoPano.com. Our Betatesters were a pleasure to work with; we were impressed with the patience of the users and the quality of the bug reports we received. We are a small team, and without their help and input during the Beta trial the site would not be what it is today. Because of Kickstarter, we're able to present a much more robust and stable user experience.

As always, our first priority is the user experience. We encourage you all to come to the site today, not just to experience the first 360 degree video community, but also to continue to give us your thoughts and feedback. This is a site designed for the community, and Kickstarters are the first members of this community; you have a chance to help shape the next media revolution.

      @Michael do you plan to release before end of year, a player compatible with Google+, as they release theyr APIs last September ?

      I'm advising a few brand to equipe theyr team (with goPano) on Cultural Events they Sponsor, and I would really love them to be the first Brand to use/upload their panoramique video on their Goople+ Brand/product profile...

      @Michael I have to disagree, as I said in my comment your app on the iPhone already does a wider screen than the flash player on your website, which I find more enjoyable to watch. Also it would be up to the poster. Give people the ability to select screen ratio on the videos that they post.

      Is it possible for there to be a stand-alone viewer? We will be using the GoPano to develop some in-house projects that we will want to display to team members. As our work is proprietary, we cannot have our videos put online.

      Additional thought - why not offer 'viewing guides' or 'traces' - live-recordable angles within the environment? In other words, the GoPano video is the world- but a person could create a unique take within (what to look for) in that environment. A viewer could ride-along with the the guide, to appreciate the GoPano environment from the guides perspective.

      Guys - really great work. BUT - it seems super-obvious that because these videos are 'environments' that viewers can explore, as opposed to static presentations to be absorbed passively - you need a LOOP mode so that viewers can continue to engage with the video and not 'time-out'. In many cases (static physical environments) the stones / rocks / etc will stay the same - if the 'actors' - people walking around, birds, etc - move or skip when the video loops, not a problem.

      Gerard: We're still experimenting a bit with display sizes. Making the view too wide gives a "tunnel vision" appearance which can be dizzying. This effect is less prominent when you have a narrow field of view like those other guys.

      We're halfway through production and shipments for Kickstarters. Barring any (more) unforeseen circumstances, we expect all remaining shipments to go out by next week.

      This would be great news ... if I had received the two units that I pledged $100 for. Until then, I'll remain nervous that my $ is gone.

      When will you be shipping? I'm still waiting to receive mine.

      Also, when on the iPhone you can tilt the device to watch the video in landscape which looks much much better. Would it be possible to have the videos on the website in landscape as well? I noticed that the Kogeto Dot guys are doing widescreen landscape as well, looks better, well to me anyways.

      Ok, first comment on the website, can't upload. It keeps getting stuck at 99%
