Cable Center Exhibits

Interested in how cable grew from mom-and-pop businesses to a multi-billion dollar industry? Our online exhibits feature information on the people, places and events that made it happen.

The Cable Center is proud to announce our Virtual Reality Archives Exhibit. Website visitors can now download the project, “step into” The Cable Center's building and manipulate cable related artifacts in our virtual archives.

We are equally excited to premier for free on Steam, the largest virtual reality store. The Center started experimenting with virtual reality in late 2013 with the goal of capturing objects to share in exhibits and videos. Four years later, we have elevated our work to a whole new level. Website visitors can now download the project, “step into” The Cable Center's building and manipulate cable related artifacts in our virtual archives. You can experience watching our Oral History videos in the virtual John Malone Theater on the big screen. Or, be enveloped in a video in our 360 video theater. A downloadable version is available now for those with an HTC Vive headset, as well as a basic version in 2D for Windows desktop. The Oculus Rift version is coming soon.
