High tech time-lapse videos of Dubai hit YouTube
11 July, 2015
Viewers around the globe can now get a high-tech glimpse of Dubai through two recently unveiled 360-degree, 8K-resolution YouTube time-lapse videos of the Dubai Airport and Sheikh Zayed Road, the first two of their kind. Officially launched in January, Dubai360 – which produced the videos – specialises in interactive, state-of-the art 360-degree images which allow users to explore over 1,200 parts of Dubai – from the iconic Burj Khalifa to the backstreets of Satwa and Deira – without ever leaving the comfort of one’s home. But the first of the new YouTube videos – a 24-hour time lapse of the Dubai International Airport – was shot in 8K resolution, 16 times the resolution of other HD videos. Until recently, YouTube only allowed for 4K videos to be uploaded.
