Since early 2017 I have lead the design and development of SITU, FGMNT Technology's online platform for editing and distributing 360° video. Situ allows users to easily composite artwork or other elements into 360° videos. Users can then construct narrative experiences that benefit from the immersive nature of the 360° medium. Once a project is completed the user can share it, and even present it live in real time around the world. The product is available on a subscription basis and runs on the web, on smartphones, and in Virtual Reality.
As Head Of Creative Technologies at FGMNT, my role is to define the product based upon the needs of our customers, handle much of the user experience design, tend the product roadmap and project manage our team of talented developers. Since the SITU concept first arrived at FGMNT I have been tasked with fleshing it out into a fully featured piece of software. Working with the FGMNT team I wrote the original specification document for the product and have overseen its design and development since that point.
Situ is currently finding its audience in the advertising industry who use it to research and pre-visualise out of home media before going live in the real world. For more info on SITU visit situ360.com or - better yet - start a free trial, have a go, and let us know what you think!
