The pocket-sized camera is the first to shoot 360-degree video in 5.7K at 30fps, with instant in-device stitching for 4K footage and live-streaming
London, UK, November 24, 2017 – YI Technology (YI), the leading provider of advanced, intelligent imaging technologies, today announced the release of the YI 360 VR, a 360-degree, VR-enabled camera on Amazon UK. The YI 360 VR makes high-end virtual reality video easy and accessible to anyone, regardless of ability or budget.
With a simple, handheld and mountable camera design, the YI 360 VR is the first VR-enabled camera to combine high-fidelity, 360-degree video capture, an easy mobile application along with 4K instant, in-device stitching and 4K live-streaming to a number of channels/platforms. With these innovations, the YI 360 VR provides a complete solution for creating immersive, 360-degree video experiences easily, quickly and anywhere.
Already known for its YI 4K+ Action Camera, the YI M1 Mirrorless Digital Camera and the YI HALO professional 3D camera, YI’s launch of the YI 360 VR Camera offers users a consumer-grade, affordable yet professional quality option for capturing and sharing 36O degree footage.
Other key features for the YI 360 VR include:
- Two 220ᵒ 8-Glass lenses include 2 aspheric glass lenses, each with an f/2.0 aperture
- In-camera video stitching for up to 4K/30fps
- PC application for 5.7K/30fps video stitching
- Built-in 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi for live-streaming in 4K
- Five video preview options within the app including stretched view, little planet, round, panoramic and dual VR view
- Up to 60-minutes battery life recording at 4K/30fps
- Compatible with Oculus Rift and HTC Vive VR headsets
Sean Da, CEO of YI Technology, says: “At YI Technology we challenge ourselves to bring the most innovative technologies together in a way that is simple, enjoyable and useful for anyone, from kids to professionals, and VR is no exception. Previous solutions for 360-degree video capture forced users to choose between having an affordable yet low-quality product, or an expensive and highly complicated product. That is why we worked so hard to perfect the YI 360 VR. By combining the best components, rigorous industrial design and many years of testing, we have eliminated the cables, confusing interfaces and bulky components that people were used to, and replaced them with 5.7K resolution, 4K in-device stitching and 4K live-streaming — all in a handy and affordable package.”
