Jericho, NY—Humaneyes Technologies is now shipping its Vuze camera. The device is positioned as the first 3D, 360º, virtual reality (VR) camera that captures professional-quality video combined with 3D audio at an accessible price.
The accompanying Humaneyes VR Studio software provides fully automated production and editing tools. In additin, it is said to deliver the fastest rendering of VR content in the industry. The Vuze is designed to enable any level of videographer to create stereoscopic VR videos as well as still pictures at the push of a button.
“We’re excited to officially bring the incredibly simple-to-use, affordable and highly portable Vuze VR camera to the market,” said Humaneyes’ general manager of North America, Jim Malcolm. “Consumer-grade 360º cameras may be easy to use and affordable, but they don’t provide the depth of VR video that filmmakers and the creative community now require to tell their stories.”
Vuze Key Features
The device uses eight Full HD cameras simultaneously to capture 360º VR video or stills in 4K per-eye resolution. Also, four internal microphones create a 3D audio field. The camera offers one button operation with an integrated remote control via Wi-Fi and a mobile app (iOS and Android). In addition, it provides up to two hours of video capture on a single charge.
Furthermore, automated Studio software offers fast rendering of VR content with near real-time processing. Specs state it takes one minute of rendering for one minute of recorded footage, dependent on system GPU. The software is now available for PC and will be offered for Mac platforms this summer.
Users can share their 3D or 2D content online via YouTube, Facebook and other social media sites. They also can view it via any major VR platform and HMD.
“From the beginning, Humaneyes has had the vision to capture the true human experience. As the VR market rapidly evolves, we’re looking forward to seeing the amazing and immersive content to emerge from the Vuze VR camera,” Malcolm added.
Lightweight and pocketable, the Vuze camera comes in yellow, red, black and also blue versions. It retails for $799. humaneyes.com
