360 Video Tour: Vancouver Airport Baggage Screening

In partnership with the Vancouver Airport Authority, PATIO Interactive helped shoot a virtual reality 360 video of the new THR baggage screening procedure at the Vancouver International Airport (YVR).

With the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA)’s new Transborder HBS Recapitalization Program, our client was searching for ways to educate and train its internal staff on the full THR baggage screening system.

The tour is presented by a Vancouver Airport Authority staff member, who takes us through the journey from a unique perspective within the screening procedure. The immersive experience is supported by guided movements and text animations to really help the viewer follow the process.

For site workers, this was a way to demonstrate and learn every step of the process even before setting foot on site. For others, it was a unique and educational way to visualize and understand the depths of the procedure and what happens behind the restricted scenes.

As one of the first of its kind, the 360° video was not only an effective tool for education and training but a great way to demonstrate the benefits of adopting new technology (such as virtual reality) for visual storytelling.

A major use of VR is already being seen within Education and Training — the possibilities of learning are everywhere and there’s potential for everyone, from mechanics to military to surgeons and beyond. For the youth, VR education in the classroom could be a revolutionary way to teach kids about the human body, or learn about the pyramids by virtually visiting them.

We look forward to creating the next immersive VR experience!
