360 Round is a camera designed for recording and streaming 3D content


To assist in the recording—and consumption—of immersive VR content, Samsung has introduced a 360 Round camera that’s capable of both recording and streaming high-quality 3D content. Obviously, a device of such nature won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, which is why the firm’s marketing it towards enthusiasts and specialists who demand a “superior VR experience.”

The 360 Round camera sports seventeen lenses

The 360 Round uses seventeen lenses—eight stereo pairs positioned horizontally and one single lens positioned vertically—to live stream 3D video and spatial audio in 4K, and create engaging 3D images with depth. It also features a durable, compact design, coupled with IP65 water and dust resistance, so it’s suitable for use in everyday weather conditions.

“The growth of 360 content platforms, such as Samsung VR, Facebook and YouTube, as well as the spread of 360 videos through major media, has increased the need for high-quality 360 videos among VR professionals and enthusiasts,” said Samsung. “The 360 Round is the first product to meet these needs by combining high-quality, 360-degree imagery with advanced 3D depth at a reasonable price.”
