VIRTUAL REALITY CASE STUDY
NEW CALEDONIA TOURISM BOARD
NEW CALEDONIA TOURISM BOARD
The island of New Caledonia in the Pacific Ocean is not as well know as some of its neighbours. The Tourism
Board had noticed virtual reality was successfully being used by travel companies such as Thomas Cook to give
potential tourists an insight in to what their real holiday could look like.
They asked Start VR to propose an interactive VR user experience, using 360 video to showcase New Caledonia’s
exotic attractions from never seen before perspectives.
A VIRTUAL TASTE
Start VR designed a VR application that combined 360 video footage with an immersive, interactive user
experience that was delivered on the Samsung Gear and Google Cardboard.

The Start VR Graphics, Unity and App Development team designed a custom application interface that gave
users the ability to explore different parts of the island.
THE VR NARRATIVE
The VR app provided twelve scenes of immersive, sensory and interactive content experiences that users
unlocked as they ‘moved’ around the island.
Start VR scripted and filmed twelve, 360 videos which allow the user to experience the island from unique
perspectives, hear compelling stories from locals, explore private paradise beaches and gardens; be awed by the
natural beauty, and appreciate the cosmopolitan New Caledonia lifestyle.
PUBLISHING / ANALYTICS
Users that do not have a Gear VR headset can download the New Caledonia app via iOS or Android and also
watch the videos.
By activating the ‘VR’ on button, anyone with an iPhone or Android phone can take a virtual tour of your chosen
destination with a Google Cardboard, then within in the app users can link directly to search for flights.
