Aldo Hoeben - IVRPA Member


Rotterdam, , Netherlands

My name is Aldo Hoeben. I am a panorama photographer, projection artist, occasional software developer and most of all a tinkerer. On this site, I am showcasing my work.

I been involved in panoramic photography since 1996. Over the years, I deployed several different viewing technologies, discovering the merits and limitations of each technology. With a steady development of mainstream computer graphics hardware and the arrival of broadband internet, the time to initiate new innovations in the field of panoramic imaging has come. This is why I developed the SPi-V engine; the first publically available, cross platform, hardware accelerated panorama viewing engine, based on Macromedia's acclaimed Shockwave technology.

In 2006, I joined the IVRPA Board of Directors and was responsible for designing and implementing the original IVRPA community website, based on the open source Drupal CMS. In 2015, this site was finally replaced with a new one.
