360 Video Tour
Take a Look at Oxford Networks. We manage data from your point of view.
We’re glad you’ve come to this page to see our 360-degree virtual reality tour of the Oxford Networks Brunswick Data Center. Below are a few instructions and tips on using your complimentary glasses and viewing our production. We’ve also created a short video to show how to properly use the glasses and view the video.
For ease of access, you may want to view this file on your smartphone.
- To use the glasses, you’ll need your smartphone. You’ll also need to make sure you have the latest version of YouTube installed. (To download the YouTube app, visit YouTube.com, the Apple Store, or the Android App Store.)
- On your smartphone, go to https://youtu.be/4zQkEjQlvZI to access the video. The video may start playing, but pause it so you can prepare to view it correctly with the goggles.
- Click on the three stacked dots located at the upper right corner of the screen. Then click on the small “gear wheel” icon option titled “Quality.” (Note: you won’t be able to select a resolution if you are not on a wireless network.) If you’re on a wireless network, you may select the resolution of your choice, or simply play the default setting. The higher the resolution, the better the quality of the image, but the longer it will load on your phone. (If possible, we recommend 720s resolution.)
- Before playing, click on the small Google cardboard icon at the bottom of the viewer window. It looks like this:
- Before clicking play, slide the phone horizontally in the viewer. (You may need to remove your protective case to fit the phone in the viewer compartment.) After pressing play, close the door to the viewer glasses compartment to lock the phone in place.
- You can adjust the straps on the glasses so that it sits comfortably on your head.
- Adjust the ocular setting on the glasses located above both eyepieces.
- Before viewing, you should sit down, as it’s possible the VR experience can make you dizzy if you’re standing.
- Watch and enjoy.
NOTE: if you have a large phone like an Apple iPhone 6S Plus, the door won’t close; you’ll need to hold the phone in place with your hand.
You can also view the video on a desktop, and simply use your mouse to scan the images in 360 degrees.
