Pavlovsk Palace

Traveled to Russia with a team from Apple Computer and The National Art Gallery to systematically recorded all the rooms of a famous summer Palace outside St. Petersburg.  I customized the rig that I made at Apple Computer for creating panoramic photography.  These were compiled and published on the QuickTime 1.6.CD as the first ever navigable scene, soon to be called QTVR.

I worked with Mike Mills, Mitch Yawitz, Eric Chen of Apple and Susan Massie and Kim Nielsen of National Gallery.

Technical Notes: This used a microcontroller from Radient systems, a pan and tilt head from Pelco and HyperCard software for control and playback. This configuration was documented, built into a toolkit by Apple and sold by Radiant.
