Nokia Opens International Phone-Imaging Exhibit

23 Oct, 2007

REALVIZ photo-stitching software creates panoramic cityscapes from photographs taken with a Nokia multimedia computer; images on exhibit now in London and in the Second Life virtual world.

Panoramic imagery created from mobile phone photographs comprises the Connected Worlds exhibition opening today at London's Royal Albert Hall and in the Second Life virtual world. Photographer and artist Henry Reichhold of Reichhold Arts used REALVIZ Stitcher Unlimited photo-stitching software to create the panoramas from photos shot using a Nokia N95 multimedia computer. The Connected Worlds images reflect nine cities: London, Paris, Venice, New York, San Francisco, Sydney, Cape Town, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

REALVIZ Stitcher is photo-stitching and image-assembling software for creating panoramas and 360-degree virtual tours. The software's central automatic stitching engine enables users to create panoramas, large-format prints, matte paintings, reflection maps, and dynamic virtual tours from digital imagery.

Connected Worlds, sponsored by Nokia Nseries, can be viewed at London's Royal Albert Hall through November 6. Visitors can view the panoramas when attending performances or by visiting on October 27 or November 3 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Admission is free.

The exhibit also opens today for 24-hour viewing in the Second Life virtual world, on Nokia's island, "Mobility."
