What is InVideo?
InVideo is a virtual reality video system that puts participants inside a virtual video world allowing them to interact in real-time with video objects.
It is as if you literally stepped inside of a video game.
What does an InVideo System cost?
A basic InVideo System costs $35,000 excluding the monitor. The price of monitors can vary from $400 for a conventional 27" monitor to $3,000 for a 50" rear screen projection monitor to as much as $9,500 for a 120" front screen projection monitor system.
What other costs are involved?
Standard additional costs include:
- An installation fee within the U.S. of $2,500 (price includes travel and accommodation).
- Shipping fees which average $500 for the system.
Optional custom costs include:
- Custom housing - starting at $2,500.
What does an InVideo System consist of?
An InVideo System consists of the following components: 1. the Control System, 2. the Video Camera, 3. the Backdrop, 4. the Monitor (monitor priced separately), and 5. the Lighting.
- Control System - The InVideo Control System consists of a 2'(l) x 2'(w) x 4'(h) rack of computer, audio and video processing gear. The Control System can be housed either in a conventional arcade style cabinet, a custom cabinet, or in a remote location such as a closet or computer equipment room.
- Video Camera - the video camera is ceiling or wall mounted approximately 12' to 20' from the participants who stand against a blue background.
- Background - the InVideo System requires a blue wall or curtain which serves as the background which participants stand in front of while viewing themselves on the monitor. The minimum background dimensions are 10'(w) x 8' (h).
- Monitor - The monitor is placed approximately 12' in front of the participant, opposite the background wall. Additional repeat monitors are recommended to offer observing non-participants and passersby a view of the experience.
- Lighting - Two 150-300 watt lights are ceiling or wall mounted approximately 6' away from and focused on the participant.
How much space does an InVideo System take up?
InVideo Systems require a minimum of 120 square feet (10' x 12') however, depending on the size of the monitor, as much as 15' x 20' might be desirable.
How easy is it to operate the InVideo System?
Once the InVideo System is installed on-site it requires no further set-up. The only possible adjustments necessary would be in the event of a drastic change in lighting conditions. Simple instructions are included for making lighting adjustments.
Does the InVideo System require an operator or attendant?
Once powered up, the InVideo System is self-running and requires no operator or attendant.
Both free-running and coin-operated versions are available for use in museums or amusement centers.
Do InVideo Systems come with a guarantee?
InVideo Systems are guaranteed for parts only for a period of three (3) months after installation.
What is the delivery schedule and what are the payment terms?
Typical turn-around time from order to delivery is approximately 4 to 6 weeks. Production of custom InVideo environments generally requires a minimum of 8 to 12 weeks depending on the storyboard. An initial payment of 60% is required upon placing an order. The balance is due upon installation.
