Use Cases

  • Recording Library Events and Programs: The HERO11’s high-quality video capabilities make it ideal for capturing library events such as author talks, workshops, and presentations. This footage can be used for documentation, archiving, or sharing on library websites and social media platforms.
  • Creating Immersive Virtual Tours: Libraries can use the HERO11 to capture immersive 360-degree videos or panoramic shots, allowing patrons to explore the library virtually. These tours can provide a unique perspective and attract new patrons, especially those unable to visit in person.
  • Facilitating Instructional Videos: The HERO11’s excellent video quality and wide-angle lens can be utilized for creating instructional videos on various topics such as research techniques, digital literacy, or library resources. These videos can serve as educational tools and be made available on the library’s website or YouTube channel.
  • Promoting Outdoor and Community Initiatives: Libraries often engage in community outreach programs or collaborate on outdoor activities. The rugged design and action-oriented features of the HERO11 make it suitable for documenting and promoting these initiatives, such as nature walks, community clean-ups, or outdoor reading events.

By incorporating the GoPro HERO11 into their repertoire, libraries can enhance their multimedia capabilities, engage patrons in new and exciting ways, and provide valuable content for educational and promotional purposes.
