Tech giant Nokia has recently announced the release of its new 360 camera which is aimed at delivering excellent video recording with quality audio. The Nokia Ozo VR Camera is mostly suited for those into entertainment and film production.
The Nokia OZO camera captures stereoscopic 3D video through eight (8) synchronized global shutter sensors and spatial audio
I through eight (8) integrated microphones. Software built for OZO enables real-time 3D viewing, with an innovative playback solution that removes the need to pre-assemble a panoramic image – a time-consuming process with solutions currently in the marketplace.
Nokia OZO’s filmed content can be published for commercially available VR viewing hardware such as head mounted displays (HMDs), with immersive, full 360-degree imaging and spatially accurate original sound. OZO also integrates into existing professional workflows and works with third- party tools, dramatically simplifying content production at all stages.
Surprisingly, the Nokia Ozo VR Camera is packed with a lot of features without much impact on its shape and weight. With a weight of about 2.7kg the Nokia Ozo VR Camera can be kept on a tripod stand and used for excellent filming tasks.
Work is still ongoing on the Nokia Ozo VR Camera and it is expected to hit the market soon and Nokia is expected to announce the pricing and full technical specifications at a later date.
