Google’s New VR Camera Has 17 Lenses And Shoots 8K x 8K Stereoscopic Video
With the virtual reality market and 360º content increasingly present, it is normal for large companies to try to earn their space. After many others have already submitted their proposals, it is now Google’s turn to reveal what they have prepared.
YI HALO has been introduced and is preparing to be a unique camera to create content in this new technology that is increasingly interesting.
It was in 2015 that the tech giant Google launched its Jump program, designed to simplify the production of VR videos. The Jump team partnered with leading manufacturers to create high-quality cameras while making them simple. There is also the Jumo Assembler platform, which uses sophisticated algorithms and the processing power of Google data centers to produce the videos.
YI HALO is the result of a partnership between Google and YI, a subsidiary of Xiaomi. This 3D camera, consisting of 17 elements, allows you to capture 8K video at 30fps or 6K at 60fps video.
The video below shows all the capabilities of YI HALO and what 3D content producers can do with this new camera.
Weighing only 3.5kg, HALO is composed of 16 chambers arranged in a circle and one placed in the middle, facing upwards. It has the ability to run 100 minutes with a battery, which can be changed without turning the system off.
The simplicity of use of YI HALO is so great that it is only a smartphone that can be controlled. The only drawback of this new camera is its price, which exceeds $ 17,000.
The tech giant Google is also launching the Jump Start program, which will give access to this new camera and Jump Assembler to 100 filmmakers who want to start creating VR content.
