Camera Samsung 360 Round VR puts 17 image sensors in a disc-shaped camera

 

Samsung already has a popular video camera VR in the form of Gear 360, but this is a consumer class device that is intended for use by ordinary people, not professional content creators. For those who are in the market for something more quality than your standard spherical shooter consumer class, Samsung now offers 360 rounds.
The sporting form of the disc, the VR camera looks like a portable CD player, at first glance - you know, a thing that was ubiquitous among people walking around with headphones during the 90s. In addition, of course, it will not play CDs, but captures a spherical video with an intense amount of detail.
Samsung 360 Round holds 17 2.0-megapixel cameras along its disk form - 16 of them at the edges and one from above for a clear view of the vertical horizon. Yes, there are many cameras, which makes it quite powerful and captures 3D VR images. It connects these lenses to six microphones to ensure 360-degree audio capture as well. In case you have even better omnidirectional microphones in your purse, it also has two microphone ports for better amplification of the audio signal. All the videos you shoot can be saved to 40GB of internal memory, although you can also add an SD card (up to 256 GB) and an SSD (up to 2 TB).
Like most professional installations, the 4K 3D camera has direct video with spatial sound at a smooth frame rate of 30 frames per second, as well as in 2D at the same resolution and frame rate. Samsung claims that there will be a bit of a backlog when it comes to livestream, since the software can stitch the video almost instantly. It also comes with management software that allows you to easily manage the live stream during the broadcast. Please note: Wi-Fi is not available, therefore, a wired Ethernet connection is required to connect to the network.
As it is intended for professional use, the Samsung 360 Round has been properly equipped for long-term operation. This includes a body chassis chassis that is designed to reduce heat without the need for a cooling fan, and the IP65 rating for resistance to water and dust, so you can bring it outdoors without leaving it helpless at the mercy of the elements. It is also compact, only 8 x 3 inches (diameter x height), which makes it even easier to pack in a bag than a large DSLR.
During the live broadcast, you need to connect to a PC that can run both management software and real-time stitching software. As you can imagine, PC requirements are steep: according to Samsung's press release, you will need a computer with a Core i7 processor, 32 GB of RAM, and a Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti GPU for a minimum. Honestly, we think that you can use a less powerful computer, although this will probably increase the delay time, since you will need these specifications to execute the line as quickly as possible.
