  • Patent number: 11810254
    Abstract: A system surrounds an area with a first set of display panels. A second set of display panels is positioned above the area, and a third set of display panels is positioned below the area. A subject is positioned within the area and may be on an omnidirectional treadmill within the area. A controller communicates content to the first set of display panels, the second set of display panels, and the third set of display panels that presents a multidimensional scene when displayed. A set of sensors capture sensor data of the subject within the area while content is displayed. One or more of the sensors may be coupled to a repositioning system that repositions sensors so the subject remains in a field of view of different sensors. From sensor data of the subject, a representation of the subject may be generated for insertion into other video content.
