SpheronVR SpheroViewer (screenshots using .SPH data)

  • Numerous screenshots are taken to show details / issues.
  • Click all images for larger views.
  • All larger images are captured at screen resolution (approx 1920 x 1200) (as with iSTAR screenshots).
  • Views taken match views of the iSTAR captures for convenient comparison

  • NO ‘stitching issues’ at zenith on Spheron image (as resultant image is NOT derived by stitching separate images together)
  • A little noisy due to capture settings (can be smoothed out) with alternative capture settings.
