Sphericam Releases 360-degree 'Beast' Camera System
Sphericam Inc. will be launching its newest 360º camera system at the NAB Show in New York City on November 9th after several months of intense stealth development.
The new Sphericam Beast camera system is a large-format, high-end, cinema-grade, modular and easily scalable 360º video capture system that can also stream live to the web or to headsets. The first iteration of the system uses four 1” inch sensors and four M.2 SSD drives to capture uncompressed 360-degree video at an output resolution of more than 6K at 60fps and 10-bit RAW format.
Sphericam is expanding its product portfolio with a new studio-grade virtual reality camera system designed from the ground up to offer best-in-class fully spherical image capture and streaming performance for high-end filmmakers and broadcasters. The Sphericam team has created this “truly cinematic” system with great care and consideration, providing production groups the level of quality and resolution they have been asking us for. “For a young venture-backed company the decision to address the challenges of the professional users rather than to focus on the large volume consumer solutions is a defining moment. We feel our strengths are understanding the most demanding product and technical aspects of spherical video capture and providing the industry with no-compromise tools to empower a true cambrian explosion of quality immersive content,” founder and CEO Jeffrey Martin explains.
