Te Pae virtually opens its doors
 
Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre has partnered with Christchurch-based XR (extended reality) technology company JIX Reality to launch a virtual tour of the centre. The tour can be viewed online, with each experience starting at the main entrance and continuing through the venue’s array of spaces, including the 1400-seat Auditorium and 1000-seat Rivers Room.
 
Depending on the viewing method, the tour either follows a pre-determined path, or users can undertake a self-guided 360 degree experience and visit specific spaces.
 
Te Pae Christchurch general manager Ross Steele commented: “Christchurch is well-known for being innovative and pushing the envelope in those areas where it has the expertise and passion to make a difference, so it’s little surprise that hi-tech solutions are one of the city’s growth industries.
 
“JIX Reality is a great example of this, the team are forward-thinking and creative – they came up with some industry-leading ideas and had the technological capability to make it a reality. And when we needed to look at solutions that would allow us to open our doors, so to speak, while the borders remained closed – they quickly adapted our new virtual product to suit.”
