Altia Systems – a CES 2016 Award Honoree and recipient of the 2016 Frost and Sullivan New Product Innovation Award – today announced the availability of a Virtual Reality mode for its award-winning PanaCast 2 Panoramic-4K real-time video camera. The newly available Virtual Reality mode is based on a new generation of global stitching technology and algorithms which optimize for outdoor and live-action use. The camera is in production and available today with the VR mode for the original price of $995.
With its on-board PanaCast video processor, the PanaCast 2 outputs Panoramic-4K video with industry-leading sub-single frame latency. The PanaCast 2 offers a 3840 x 1080 pixels per frame resolution across a 180° field-of-view that mimics the natural human perspective. Relative to a 360° x 360° 4K camera, this results in significantly higher-quality video thanks to 2x higher horizontal and ~3.3x higher vertical pixel density.
