CenarioVR FAQ


Frequently Asked Questions about CenarioVR.

What is CenarioVR?

CenarioVR is an easy-to-use, online authoring tool for creating virtual reality simulations. It allows you to create engaging and intuitive interactions, through which learners can explore and participate in a captivating 360° virtual environment designed to expand their vision and promote learning, retention, and impact to your organization.

Do you support 4K video?

Yes. CenarioVR supports 4K video upload.

Always capture your source material in 4K resolution or higher. Remember that 4K resolution is split between multiple lenses and spread over a full 360 degrees, so 4K images and video only give you HD in each hemisphere. If the resulting video is too large or requires too much bandwidth (see the compression section below!), you can always lower the resolution to HD if the subject matter does not need it, but you can’t go the other way.

Small caveat: as of this writing, iPad devices are unable to load or play 4K WebVR video content, so make sure you know the devices that an end user may use to access content. If there will be a significant portion of users that will expect to view the material on an iOS tablet, you’ll need to bring the resolution of the videos down to HD.

Are academic and military discounts available?

Absolutely! Trivantis is proud to support academic and military organizations with the best eLearning software on the market. Reach out to your Trivantis Account Representative if you have any questions.
