Stereoscopic 360 degree camera developed

Posted: Updated:
Producer Roham Rahmanian announced Tuesday that The Astronauts Guild have started test trials on 180 and 360-degree camera systems to capture first-person virtual reality experiences. 

The urgency is on for video content providers to apply new technologies.

Other producers using CGI (computer-generated imagery) content have already made an impact in movies and gaming, so now video producers feel they need new tools to remain competitive. 

The Astronauts Guild claims that the key to success as stereoscopic producers is to stay on top of technology, and adapting current equipment.

Those experiences gave them the insight to develop 180 and 360-degree camera systems for shooting first person, live-action virtual reality experiences.

“The virtual-reality revolution is upon us, and The Astronauts Guild wants to be on the forefront of creating quality, live-action content for entertainment, and possibly more importantly, for medical applications." said Rahmanian.

“I hope, the early content creators for Oculus Rift and Sony Morpheus, including The Astronauts Guild, can come to a consensus early on, about quality control and mathematically calculated standards for content, it is of the utmost importance that the consumer feels comfortable trying out virtual reality, and is excited to make it a part of their daily entertainment experience,” added Rahmanian.

Tests and previews will be available online in October 2014 on their website
