High resolution 360° spherical still images and 4K 360° video
Both the image quality of still images and video have been significantly improved and power consumption has been reduced by adopting a new high quality imaging sensor. Furthermore, Ricoh have completely changed the exposure accuracy and white balance algorithm by combining image processing technology cultivated through the development of high performance cameras that include Ricoh’s DSLRs and the GR premium compact camera. You can now enjoy high-definition 360°spherical images with an approx 14MP output for still images, even when using auto shoot.
4K 360° video at 30 Frames per second
The camera can shoot 4K 360° video smoothly at 30 frames per second at a resolution of 3840 x 1920 pixels, equivalent to 4K. Users can enjoy greater realism by creating immersive VR video content and watching video on a large screen. In addition to supporting the H.264 file format for video recording.
360° spatial audio recording that reproduces overwhelming realism
The camera has a built-in 4-channel microphone that supports 360° spatial audio recording. Recording omnidirectional audio both horizontally and vertically, makes it possible to recreate an even more realistic experience by linking the 360° audio with the video.
Remote Playback for 360° video is installed as a plug-in. Using general-purpose receiver equipment such as a compatible wireless display adapter, it is possible to mirror playback of 360° images and video data stored directly on the camera’s memory. This allows users to enjoy powerful 360° video on large displays or over projectors directly via the camera.
Bluetooth and Wi-Fi dual communication
The camera can always be connected to a smartphone using Bluetooth low energy. Images can be shot from a smartphone while connected using Bluetooth low energy, and the camera can be turned on from the basic application when it enters sleep mode. With the Wi-Fi connection, all functions such as live view image transfer can be used.
Support for 4K 360° live streaming
Real time live steaming in 4K 360° is also supported. It is possible to share the atmosphere live streamed*6 4K 360° spherical image over the Internet. And in case you were wondering, this is 30fps too.
