12K 360Video Using the H3Pro10HD

360Heros Announces Breakthrough 360 Video Camera Gear

OLEAN, NY – Michael Kintner, CEO, inventor, founder and manufacturer of 360Heros Video Gear announces the release of the H3Pro10HD (360 VIDEO IN SUPER HD) camera gear for production of 12,000 x 6,000 full sphere seamless Dome imagery. This breakthrough system uses the mighty GoPro® Hero3 Black or Hero3 Black Plus for the most compact and powerful 360 camera video and photo array. To assemble the 360 Plug-n-Play™ HD Edition, simply snap in 10 GoPro® Hero Blacks to produce 12K mammoth content for IMAX® size screens in immersive screening environments, or scale down the imagery for stunning sharp video and photos for any dome size, projection system or web viewer.

Designed in response to overwhelming requests from dome content producers and exhibitors, the H3Pro10HD supports production at resolutions and frame rates previously only possible with render-intensive CGI content or expensive and complex mirror camera rigs. The 360Heros gear and support software packages allow producers to shoot, stitch and present content on lightning fast timelines compared to CGI. The possibilities for applications are endless – from high end immersive cinema productions, to interactive entertainment, sporting and educational shows, to virtual reality integration with the Oculus Rift VR®.
