Television Corporation of Japan Co., Ltd.: Experience an Animal's Field of View! (Up to 355°)

The world's first publicly-released videos reproducing the viewing angles of animals.

An epic video making full use of 6 GoPro cameras and the latest in video editing techniques!

TOKYO--()--Using GoPro cameras and making full use of the latest editing techniques, Television Corporation of Japan Co., Ltd. has published a video entitled “Human vs Animals --The amazing eyes of animal--” that recreates the viewing angle of various animals.

In comparison with the 200° field of view for humans, dogs see 250°, sheep see 270°, birds see 300°, cows see 330°, and it is said that the Angora rabbit can see up to 355°. This video reproduces the difference of each viewing angle in a single video size.

Within the story of a heated relay-race competition between humans and animals, you can experience a highly realistic representation of the visual world from the point of view of various animals.

Differences in the Fields of View in Animals-------------
When viewing with two eyes, animals with a wide field of view have a narrower amount of overlapping visuals, but a wider overall field in each individual eye. In order to reproduce this phenomenon, the video was edited to keep the field viewed with two eyes clear and to slightly blur the field viewed with only one eye. In addition, an animal’s sense of color is thought to be different from humans, so the video color was adjusted to show a monotonous tone based on the animal’s ability to see various wavelengths of light.

Various Fields of View Made Possible by GoPro-------------
This ultra-wide-angle video was made using state-of-the-art technology by connecting 6 GoPro cameras to shoot 360° video.
Video data from the 6 cameras was converted into photographic images, then stitched into 360° panoramic photographs. Using information of the camera positions, each frame was rendered into a panorama, then converted into a 360° panoramic movie file.
