Vuze Camera Shoots 3D VR Footage


Shooting 3D VR footage can be expensive and difficult. However, the Vuze camera from HumanEyes Technologies could make it more accessible thanks to a sub US $1,000 price tag and an easy-to-use design. The flying saucer-shaped device uses eight cameras dotted around its circumference, and comes with tools needed to help produce, edit and enjoy your VR creations.

The Vuze camera has been designed as an easy-to-use consumer device, and is controlled by a dedicated iOS and Android app. Around its circumference are eight Full HD cameras with ultra-wide angle lenses to each capture 120-degree horizontal and 180-degree vertical images. Within the app, users can see any of the eight camera views to frame shots, shoot stills or video, and also preview or delete content.

When combined, the footage from these eight cameras can be used to generate 4K 30 fps (frames per second) VR content, and users can easily switch between 2D and 3D 360-degree spherical images and videos. Internal processing is used to render easy-to-edit video files, ready to be transferred to a computer.
