Google and YI Technology released a 3D camera YI Horizon VR180

At the CES 2018, Google and the Chinese manufacturer YI Technology announced a miniature YI Horizon VR180 camera that is capable of shooting video for virtual reality applications.


YI Horizon VR180 supports the Google VR180 format. I use it for 3D video shooting and its application in VR-games and programs. Videos shot on the camera can be uploaded to YouTube and Google Photos, and if desired, the video can be viewed in the usual 2D format. And to view 3D content you can use Google Cardboard, Daydream, PSVR and other VR-headsets.


YI Horizon VR180 is able to shoot movies with a resolution of 5.7K at a frequency of 30 fps. There is an opportunity to make live broadcasts and display panoramic shots. The gadget is also equipped with a touch-sensitive 2.2-inch screen with a resolution of 640 by 360 pixels. There are also four microphones and a USB Type-C port. The release date and the price of the novelty are still unknown.


In the market there are many similar cameras, so to shoot nowadays video for virtual content is from what: at your service model YI Halo, Samsung 360 Round, Nico360 and GoPro Fusion.
