Available technologies

Immersive cylinder

An immersive cylinder is a type of high-definition technology that integrates detailed images or videos into a vertical cylinder. This technology offers a multi-angle view, making the user experience immersive and interactive. Immersive learning refers to teaching methods that immerse learners in a simulated learning environment, often using technologies such as virtual reality (VR) or augmented reality (AR). It is increasingly used in university teaching. For example, it can be used to help students understand all kinds of complex concepts and information related to science, technology, architecture, and medicine. The immersive cylinder offers 3D visual effects as well as rich, interactive scenarios and animations.
