Versatile and highly affordable new dual-mode camera for Virtual Reality ecosystem delivers flexibility to capture and share content in 3D VR180 or 2D 360° formats
NEW YORK, Dec. 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — HumanEyes Technologies, bringing Virtual Reality to Reality with its pioneering lineup of Vuze VR cameras, today announced that worldwide shipments to pre-order customers and select retail partners of the new Vuze XR camera began on November 30th. The Vuze XR made its U.S. debut at the NYVR Expo in New York City in late October.
The Vuze XR sports a unique and versatile new design, giving consumers, content creators, prosumers and VR industry professionals the freedom to capture and share engaging content and memorable moments in stereoscopic 3D VR180 or 2D 360° — all in one compact unit. The Vuze XR delivers 5.7K 30fps video capture, 18MP still photos, video stabilization, in-camera stitching, and more.
“The Virtual Reality industry is still in its infancy, and some of the technologies and standards are still undergoing an evolutionary process,” said Jim Malcolm, GM, North America for HumanEyes. “That said, the industry has strongly coalesced around the 2D 360° format for laptops and mobile devices and the new 3D VR180 format for VR headsets. The Vuze XR was designed to support both with stunning precision, plus it delivers 18MP still photos as well, so it literally is two versatile cameras in one.”
