What is the Immersive Experiences Lab?

The Immersive Experiences (IMEX) Lab offers both a space designed specifically for 360° video creation and viewing as well as a staff of content-creation experts to help guide exploration of the technology.

IMEX Lab is located in 109 Ag Sci & Industries Building and is a part of the Media Commons, which is provided by Teaching and Learning with Technology, a unit of Penn State Information Technology.

What is 360° video?

360° video is recorded in all directions at once, allowing viewers to have a more immersive viewing experience. Our specific focus is on instructing the creation of 360° video and making meaningful production decisions to create fully immersive learning experiences.

How does 360° video engage viewers?

This style of video is unique because it allows viewers to experience locations to which they wouldn’t normally have access. 360° video enables empathic storytelling between the storyteller and the audience viewing the video.
