Samsung VR Camera Features 17 Imagers

Samsung introduces the 360 Round, a camera for developing and streaming high-quality 3D content for VR experience. The 360 Round uses 17 lenses—eight stereo pairs positioned horizontally and one single lens positioned vertically—to livestream 4K 3D video and spatial audio, and create engaging 3D images with depth.

With such cameras getting widely adopted on the market, it can easily become a major market for image sensors:

    Good business for the sensor suppliers !

  2. Good lord, they just beat L16 camera by one more!

  3. Nice!! The camera setup looks interesting. I think it helps to cut down on computation when finding Omnidirectional stereo views. I don't think they are stereo camera pairs.

  4. It seems not clear if it provides hardware stitched 360 output or if it requires post processing.
