About ImmerVision’s PURE Player
Designed for maximum performance, simplicity and ease of use, ImmerVision’s PURE Player makes panoramic imaging scaleable, portable, fast, and visually stunning. Panoramas can be viewed full-screen, regardless of resolution or image size, with flawless display quality and full fluidity of viewing controls.

Available free for website applications and soon for PDA and cell phones, the PURE Player viewer is a highly flexible and more efficient solution than ever before for playing panoramic content.

PURE Player software is part of the suite of solutions based on ImmerVision’s PURE (Panorama Universal Rendering Engine) technology. Put simply, PURE is a sophisticated collection of high-performance algorithms dedicated to projecting, controlling and viewing photos and videos in a virtual tridimensional space.

“With the integration of ImmerVision’s IVP file format, REALVIZ Stitcher users can now directly output their panoramas to be visualized with PURE Player without the need for any further file manipulation,” explains Alessandro Gasparini, ImmerVision’s Chief Commercial Officer, “and the IVP format facilitates publishing and viewing of a single format panorama on multiple platforms and devices.”

“REALVIZ is very pleased with this collaboration,” adds Dominique Pouliquen, REALVIZ CEO. “Providing the best possible Java player was a key request from our user base who were looking for alternatives to QuickTime VR. We look forward to seeing the content created by our users with this new technology!”
