There are a number of products out there that cater to creators who want to capture 360-degree video footage, or those who prefer to use the stereoscopic power of VR180, but so far, not many products are capable of doing both. HumanEyes Technologies is hoping to fill that gap with the upcoming Vuze XR Camera.
The newly unveiled Vuze XR Camera is aimed at the consumer to prosumer market, and has been designed to allow creators to switch effortlessly from 2D 360-degree capture to 3D stereoscopic VR180 with just the touch of a button.
The camera is capable of capturing both high resolution still photos and full motion videos in with 5.7K 360-degree video or VR180 formats. Users will be able to ‘click’ between modes by switching from ‘closed’ for 360-degree mode to ‘open’ for VR180 mode.
HumanEyes Technologies say their goal with the design of the camera is to create a portable, easy-to-use device which seamlessly combines two advanced capture systems into something pocket-sized. As well as recording video, the images can also be live-streamed to several social media platforms.
“The Vuze XR Camera is a must have for anyone with a story or special moment to share, from consumers to prosumers. With powerful 360° and VR180 5.7K camera technology built in, along with instant sharing and a live streaming mode, anyone can enjoy the freedom of shooting their story, the way they want,” said Shahar Bin-Nun, CEO of HumanEyes Technologies. “One camera can now live stream in 360° from a concert, take immersive VR180 pictures of the band, and record your friends singing along to edit and share the full experience later. We’re giving users the freedom to spontaneously shoot content from all angles, or only a few, and we can’t wait to see what’s created with it.”
The company plans for the Vuze XR Camera to be available by Q4 of 2018. For further news on the Vuze XR Camera and other VR hardware products, keep checking back with VRFocus.
