During summer 2018, Timescope has seen its immersive devices fleet grown, while 12 terminals were inaugurated in Arras, Blois, Vendôme, Chaumont, Paris and Blanc-Mesnil.
These virtual reality terminals in self-service propose digital visits to their users. Whether they are tourists or locals inhabitants, they all can find an interest in those 360° films displayed in the Timescope, as they allow them to rediscover a place as it was in the past, as it will be in the future, or even to see this place in a new angle.
Thus, for example in the Loir-et-Cher department, 3 promotional films of the destination were produced. 360° captations by drone take the terminals’ users to a unforgettable visit of the most beautiful sites of the department, as for Chambord Castle, and the Zoo of Beauval. A terminal was set in the Austerlitz translation in Paris to start this digital guided tour and invite the travelers to go to Loir-et-Cher. Three Timescope placed in different places on the territory (Blois, Vendôme et Chaumont) then take over to complete this unique visit tour.
