nokia launched a commercially available virtual reality (VR) camera designed and built for professional content creators and a first for nokia technologies digital media portfolio. ‘we’re thrilled to introduce ozo to the content creation world, and to define a completely new category of virtual reality capture and playback solutions,’ explains president of nokia technologies,  ramzi haidamus. ‘ozo aims to advance the next wave of innovation in VR by putting powerful tools in the hands of professionals who will create amazing experiences for people around the world. we expect that virtual reality experiences will soon radically enhance the way people communicate and connect to stories, entertainment, world events and each other. with ozo, we plan to be at the heart of this new world.’

‘ozo’ enables real-time 3D viewing

 

 

 

 

conceived at the company’s research and development facility in tampere, finland, ‘ozo’ captures stereoscopic 3D video through eight synchronized global shutter sensors and spatial audio though eight matching integrated microphones. paired software enables real time 3D viewing, with an innovative playback solution that removes the need to pre assemble a panoramic image, which is usually very time consuming with current products in the marketplace. nokia partnered with jaunt studios to offer the cameras to creatives – from brands to artists to filmmakers, to create cutting edge content with the ‘ozo’, and help bring VR to the next wave of innovation.
