Nokia Technologies’ Live VR Broadcasting, 3D Stitching and VR Player Technology Broadens OZO Virtual Reality
We here at YBLTV love virtual reality! I had the most wonderful opportunity to experience OZO Making Virtual Reality. I spoke with Nokia Technologies’ Head of Presence Capture, Guido Voltolina at the 2016 NAB Show in Las Vegas, NV.
OZO makes for a RIDE-AND-A-HALF.
OZO is the first commercially available VR camera to capture full 3D 360-degree video and spatial audio. It started shipping to customers in the first quarter of this year. Viewers can experience events at the same time they are occurring, regardless of location. OZO Creator will ship in April with 3D VR stitching functionality, free of charge to OZO customers. A multi-platform VR player SDK is being made available to OZO customers in Q2 2016.
Join the OZO Pioneer Program
Don’t forget that content creators who are interested in participating in OZO’s Pioneer Program can sign up here and can visit the OZO Blog to see OZO content in action or to learn more. Unveiled just last month, the program encourages innovators to create VR experiences and content and rewards creative contributions.
