Shepperton Studios, London — Arithmetica launched a new version of its 360-degree imaging system. SphereVision 1.4, which is available for download at, allows PDF documents to be imported as base maps onto which additional imagery, floor plans and asset information can be added. Users can also place hotspots for referencing additional data onto the base map and into the 360-imagery workflow. New functionality for the addition of notes has been introduced and the software interface has been made more intuitive and user friendly.

To celebrate the launch Arithmetica is offering new users of SphereVision Project Builder a Ricoh Theta Camera when they purchase the software between Sept. 26 and Oct. 13, 2017.

Version 2.0 of SphereVision is due for release later this year, which will allow users to view projects in VR mode, using HTC Vive headsets, giving a truly immersive interaction with the rich media content captured by SphereVision and created within the Project Builder software. Arithmetica also previewed SphereVision Portal the inline hosting, viewing and collaboration platform designed to give users an easy way to share and view project data.

“These are exciting developments for users of 360 degree imagery,” said Mark Senior, Business Development Manager at Arithmetica, “as they complete the circle for 360 imagery in terms of enhancing the imagery and video by tagging assets and also giving an easy solution for visualizing, sharing and collaboration.”
