Product Details for 360Orb (Pro24)

360Orb 24-camera 2D/3D virtual reality 360° video gear

The 360Orb is a professional tool for filming high resolution 2D and 3D virtual reality 360 video content. Positioning 24 GoPro™ cameras in a spherical orientation, the 360Orb 360 Plug-n-Play™ Holder captures 360 x 180 degree videos and photos at resolutions as high as 32K. This model is ideal for studio shoots and other close quarter environments due to its high degree of frame overlap and the close proximity to which subjects can approach the unit without causing stitching issues in post-production.

The close proximity of each camera in the 360Orb configuration offers a high degree of frame overlap for each camera’s FOV (field of view). This means objects and subject matter can be very close (within 2-3 feet) to the unit while filming in comparison to other models without creating distortion or parallax issues during the stitching process.

The 360Orb incorporates our new modular 360 Plug-n-Play™ camera design into a horizontal 24-camera configuration. The new design features hinged camera arms for simple camera installation and durability, an anodized aluminum core for added strength and 3/8” mounting points for versatile mounting. The 360Orb’s configuration features 16 cameras positioned along the horizon, four upward facing cameras and four downward facing cameras. This makes it possible to capture fully spherical monoscopic footage as well as stereoscopic footage along the horizon with approximately 20 degrees of monoscopic footage on the top and bottom of the sphere.

The 360Orb is designed to film high resolution content for virtual reality head mounted displays (HMDs), 360 video platforms, planetarium domes, dome theaters and large-scale displays. Down compressed footage filmed with this model is also ideal for HMDs such as the Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR and for streaming via 360 video platforms such as Facebook, YouTube, Littlstar and Vrideo.
