Taking your creative media to the next level not only requires talent and passion, but a great deal of high-quality equipment. These days, being able to make use of cutting-edge technologies such as virtual reality can put your craft in the spotlight. To make this possible, a new VR camera promises to change the virtual reality content creation landscape through affordable yet quality hardware. Meet the SONICAM, a spherical camera that’s tailor-made for today’s virtual reality content demands.
Featuring a powerful combination of nine fisheye cameras and 64 array microphones, there’s virtually no limit to what you can do with SONICAM. These cameras work together to create an enveloping and immersive media experience for viewing on most VR headsets. SONICAM ensures full-bodied 360-degree audio for every scenario, so you can only expect immersive surround sound in your VR footage’s. And thanks to its seamless and instant footage stitching, the resulting VR footage appears lifelike and more vivid – say goodbye to blind spots and distorted images. Professional quality VR photos and videos is the name of the game for SONICAM.
SONICAM also includes a range of features that enhance both usability and media output quality. Starting with built-in live streaming support, it’s a cinch to broadcast your next gig or big event from wherever in the world. It supports the H.264 and H.265 media compression and encoding protocol for high-quality web streaming to various online video services, such as YouTube and Vimeo. Spatial audio technology accurately maps every audio stream coming through each of the 64 microphones, and maps them against the relative location of the VR footage as it was shot. This results in immersive audio-visual experience for the viewer. In addition, beam-forming technique enables active noise cancellation for the perfect audio track every time.
Other SONICAM features include out-of-the-box support for RAW image format capture, and GPS for easy and seamless background location tagging. It also has Wi-Fi connectivity which allows you to wirelessly control SONICAM from your smartphone or tablet. With built-in 128GB of removable storage, SONICAM lets you store hours of VR video and tens of thousands of 360-degree photos as soon as you use it.
If you’re a pro creative or someone who looks for a one-stop-shop VR solution that’s equally capable and affordable, the SONICAM is a real contender in the world of high-end VR cameras. At a price point that’s more affordable than most rivaling VR cameras, SONICAM offers more bang for your buck.
