The development of immersive projection environments, of hardware and software solutions for advanced creative projects, is a central focus of the work of the ZKM | Institute for Visual Media. For the anniversary celebration "10 Years ZKM in Hall A," the Institute will offer a comprehensive look into its current production with its "PanoramaFestival." From October 2007 to March 2008, every month will be public premieres of recent projects conceived for the "PanoramaScreen," a cylindrical 360° projection environment.

The "PanoramaScreen" measures 2.8 meters in height and 8 meters in diameter. Full panoramic, interactive films such as 3D animations or 360° video recordings can be shown by means of six projectors. The festival will open on 28 September 2007 with the interactive installation "Globorama" by Bernd Lintermann and Joachim Böttger. Using innovative representational forms of satellite images, "Globorama" investigates new possibilities for making information spaces navigable: surrounded by 360°-satellite recordings of the earth, visitors can travel the entire globe with a laser pointer and at selected points submerge in panoramic photos of the respective location.
In collaboration with the University of Konstanz, a special depiction process was developed based on the transformation of picture data by means of a complex logarithm. Applied in real time to satellite recordings, this process enables the seamless traversal of complex pictorial information in both close-up and clear views.

The project is realized as part of the research network "Information at Your Fingertips – Interactive Visualization for Gigapixel Displays," which is funded by the Förderprogramm Informationstechnik des Landes Baden-Württemberg (BW-FIT).
