The audience has the unique opportunity to see the action from the cockpit – cameras on board the Airbus and one of the Patrouille jets highlight just how spectacularly and precisely the planes fly in formation through the Wengen mountains. Viewers are then transported from the passenger jet cockpit into the goggles of a skier, who continues the Lauberhorn story through Hundschopf and Minschkante right up to the finish line and its crowds of spectators. The entire story can be viewed from every conceivable perspective time and again, always revealing something new to discover. Viewers will feel as though they’re right in the thick of the action, flying, skiing and celebrating in the heart of it all.
No less than four 360° camera kits (each with 6–10 GoPros) were used in filming, set atop jets, helmets, cables, skiers, helicopters, drones and much more – a technical challenge which ultimately reflects SWISS’s innovative leadership.
“We wanted our first 360° video to be truly special, a break from conventional ways and means,” says Marco Brütsch (Marketing Communications Campaigns Manager at SWISS), adding: “We were particularly pleased that we could offer the audience a unique insight into our involvement in the Lauberhorn Races, both in terms of technology and content. And we were also able to reflect SWISS’s passion for unique and innovative ideas.”
