DMD Panorama - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

I have been coding since 1986. DMD Panorama was released in June 2011 under the name Dermandar but was renamed DMD because of misspelling (Dermander, Dermendar.)

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Back in 2011, it was very challenging to process up to 15 images (in order to produce a single panoramic image) with limited processing power and memory on the iPhone 3GS and the iPhone.

Elie Khoury is the founder of Dermandar. He has worked in the videogames industry (Ubisoft) and taught math at a University. He founded this company 10 years ago and his company specializes in real-time image processing.

I have also attached a picture. Many thanks for your interest.

How long have you been working on this app?

We have published 50 updates since Sept 2010.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

Make panorama capture and sharing easy, fast, and accessible to everyone.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

In 2011, any other panorama capture app was either slow, low resolution or limited (not 360). Now that this feature is built-in in many phone cameras, the difference lies in the sharing system. We offer a cloud hosting specific to 360 images, and you can share a 360 photo as an "interactive 360 content" rather than a "flat image".

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

We have developed a technology to capture full 360 images (with floors and ceilings) called theVRkit ( With a clip-on fisheye lens to widen the vertical field of view, the app theVRkit captures the whole scene around the user.
We have also developed an app called 360visit ( that allows us to create a 360 walkthrough by connecting multiple 360 images (one per room).

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?
