Progressive metal giants DREAM THEATER have successfully introduced their first 360° App (iOS). The DreamTheater360° App includes, among other standard content, five 360° interactive songs performed at the Luna Park show in Buenos Aires, Argentina in August 2012.
After fans’ enthusiastic reviews of DreamTheater360° App and lots of demand for more Luna Park songs, DREAM THEATER and Mativision (multi-camera 360° video technology) will soon start to release the remaining songs performed at Luna Park. The decision about which songs to include in the next 360° App update will be made by fans, who will have the opportunity to vote online for the sequence of the songs released.
The DreamTheater360° App is offered at $9.99 and will constantly be updated with new 360° content at no additional cost.
The DreamTheater360° App in its first release included five interactive songs filmed and produced using the Mativision technology, which virtually transports fans directly onto the Luna Park stage right next to the band members and completely immerses them in a unique experience that they can control in real time. Each fan can direct the show by manipulating Mativision‘s multi-camera iOS player, and enjoy the concert in any way they want. They can seamlessly choose to switch from among six different cameras while also being able to rotate camera angles by taping and dragging, or by using the device’s built-in gyroscope. Fans can even zoom in and out or simply switch to “auto pilot” mode and enjoy the show without interaction.
With this groundbreaking app, DREAM THEATER aims to share with fans all the intense moments of a live performance from right beside them on stage, and provide fans with true interactivity to experience the onstage moments with complete freedom.
Along with the unique interactive 360° content, the DreamTheater360° App also includes enriched up-to-date band-related content such as a biography, discography, photos, and continuously updated tour information, news, and social media.
The DreamTheater360° App is available from the iOS AppStore.
