Samsung 360 Round Is A New VR Camera For Livestreaming

Samsung's 360 Round camera livestreams 3D VR

The circular device has a "squashed" shape, unlike the spherical designs of cameras such as the recently discontinued Nokia OZO.

The camera comes with a total of 17 different camera lenses, these are set up with eight pairs of cameras horizontally around the device and one on top.

The company also revealed a new SDK for its Gear 360 cameras that will allow "developers to build experiences that control Gear 360 cameras directly from an app while new software updates simplify how photos are shared with Samsung cloud integration".

Samsung refers to the 360 Round as a compact solution compared to other similar camera rigs, with listed dimensions of 205 x 205 x 76.8mm, and weighing in at 1.93kg. The latter benefit is a particular advantage since it cuts down power consumption and stops fan noise from disrupting the recorded content.

The 360 Round also features expandable connectors and ports for additional equipment like microphones and storage for saving for large files.

High quality audio is supported out of the box with 6 internal mics for spatial audio plus 2 external microphone ports.

Samsung is releasing the 360 Round later in October for American buyers at an unmentioned price, with other countries coming later. It's aimed at "specialists and enthusiasts" who are looking for the best possible experience. Even if you decide not to use the Round camera to getter more viewers on your video blog, you should at least know that this gadget makes possible high-quality 3D VR. Samsung's designed it to be applicable to all forms of 3D content creation.

Meet Samsung's new triple threat, the Samsung 360 Round, which records 3D, virtual reality, and 360-degree videos in 4K resolution.

"The combination of livestreaming capabilities, IP65 water and dust resistance and 17 lenses makes this camera ideal for a broad range of use cases our customers want-from livestreaming major events to filming at training facilities across various industries".
