HumanEyes Technologies announced the U.S. debut at the NYVR Expo of its Vuze XR dual camera ($439; late-November availability), shown by Jim Malcolm, GM North America, who references it as an “immersive imaging” device. The device pops open to capture images in 2D 360-degree or stereoscopic 3D VR180; it can switch easily between modes with one click. It offers video resolution at 5.7K at 30fps or up to 4K at 60fps, and can capture still images at 18 megapixels. The device’s mobile app offers remote camera control via Wi-Fi, photo and video preview, basic and advanced editing, stabilization control, photo and video filters and the ability to upload content to social media as well as live-stream it. Battery life is one hour and it can recharge fully in 1- 1/2 hours. Four built-in mics can capture an entire soundfield. Other features include video stabilization and in-camera stitching capability. It’s suitable for use for activities such as hiking and other outdoor activities. The company also says it is working with Google to complete VR180 certification for the Vuze VR.
