Insta360 extension for Premiere Pro http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/19527/insta360-extension-for-premiere-pro Mon, 23 Apr 2018 10:09:08 -0600 Vitaliy_Kiselev 19527@/talks/discussions

Los Angeles, April 23, 2018 --- Working in close cooperation with Adobe, Insta360 has developed a new integration for Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC video editing software, part of Adobe Creative Cloud®. The integration allows users of Insta360's six-lens professional camera, the Insta360 Pro, to complete every part of their 360° video post-production workflow --- from stitching to editing --- in Premiere Pro.

"A major part of growing the 360° video industry is simplifying post-production, so that pros can use the skills they already have to explore a new medium," said Sue Skidmore, head of partner relations for professional video at Adobe. "We're thrilled that Adobe's flagship video software is now ready to stitch, edit and polish content captured by the industry-leading Insta360 Pro."

The free extension will be released during this quarter to users of Premiere Pro CC 2017 and later.

Introducing "No-Stitch" Editing

Once users install the new Insta360 extension for Premiere Pro, they can directly import Insta360 Pro content into Adobe Premiere Pro CC.

The extension allows users to start editing before ever stitching their original footage, drastically cutting down stitching time at the outset of a project. To accomplish this, it generates a proxy version of the full-quality footage --- a quick-stitched, lower-resolution substitute.

Working with a proxy version instead of the original footage offers some key advantages:

  • Stitching time at the start of a project is greatly reduced --- down to just what's necessary to generate the proxy video.
  • The software can perform smoothly during editing --- without the processor-dragging challenge of navigating and displaying an 8K video file.
  • The video is only compressed a single time, during final export, ensuring maximum image quality. In a traditional workflow, there would be two compressions --- one during initial stitching and one during final export.
  • Users can cut down the proxy version to exactly the parts that are necessary for their project. In the end, only the footage that's used is stitched, avoiding any wasted time spent stitching footage that doesn't make the final cut.

Once the proxy video has been generated, creators can trim it and apply any edits as they normally would in Premiere Pro.

The last step is to export the video. During export, all changes made to the proxy version will be applied 1-to-1 to a full-quality version, and the footage involved will be stitched using Insta360's optimized algorithm.

The upshot is that creators maximize their time, minimize compression, and lump in stitching with the final export, after all of their work is done.

Z CAM™ today announced the new 10-lens structure Z CAM V1 Professional VR Camera, capable of delivering 7K 30fps / 6K 60fps, stereoscopic 360º VR while allowing closer proximity due to its small form factor. The successful launch of Z CAM V1 Pro Cinematic VR Camera last year has been highly appreciated by VR professionals. Its superb image quality, excellent low-light performance and dynamic range with such a small form factor are best in class. A number of major VR productions have been shot on Z CAM V1 Pro, including the “Elton John – Farewell Yellow Brick Road: The Legacy (VR360)“.

“Following the success of Z CAM V1 Pro, which supports 8K 30fps and 4K 60fps, VR professionals have been asking for high frame rates at higher resolution. Z CAM V1 is our answer to that. ​It​ is capable of delivering 6K, 60fps, stereoscopic 360º VR in an even smaller form factor, allowing closer proximity,” said ​Kinson Loo​, ​CEO​ of Z CAM.

​”The 10-lens structure gives a lot of overlap, which is crucial to produce high-quality stereoscopic 360º VR. Furthermore, Z CAM V1 is equipped with an exclusively designed 190º near-perfect equidistant fisheye lens​, with excellent MTF performance providing sharp resolution from its center all the way to outer edges,” added Jason Zhang, Founder & Chairman of Z CAM.

Z CAM WonderStitch stereoscopic stitching software solution is available for Z CAM V1 users for free. Z CAM WonderLive software solution, which leverages the NVIDIA® VRWorks™ 360 Video SDK to enable live streaming high-quality, 360º stereo video, is also available to support live streaming of both mono and stereo 360 VR.

“The ability to get up close to the action and live stream high-fidelity 360º VR from a small form factor takes live event production to the next level,” says Jason Paul, General Manager, Gaming Software and Virtual Reality, NVIDIA. “Our VRWorks 360 Video SDK makes it easy for VR developers and content creators to easily live capture and stitch across 10 lenses for the most amazing live-productions.”

MSRP of Z CAM V1 is USD $8,880, excluding any import tariff and local taxes.

Z CAM is a leader in the professional VR camera market globally, and strives to become a global leader of professional camera in the new media era.

JK Imaging Ltd., the worldwide licensee for KODAK PIXPRO Digital Cameras and Devices, today announced the next generation KODAK PIXPRO 4KVR360 Camera, a compact, single-body design to target the rapidly growing 360° VR video consumer market.

The 4KVR360 adopts a minimalist and stylish approach to an all-in-one 360° VR camera, with two 4K fixed focus lenses housed on either side of the futuristic camera body. Each lens is designed to work in tandem, to capture and automatically stitch full 360° 4K video* and easily upload 360° photos and videos to Facebook™ and 360° interactive videos to YouTube™ via the camera’s smart device app on the go.

Matterport Pro2 Lite 3D and VR​ Camera http://personal-view.com/talks/discussion/19049/matterport-pro2-lite-3d-and-vr%E2%80%8B-camera Tue, 20 Feb 2018 01:09:07 -0700 Vitaliy_Kiselev 19049@/talks/discussions image

Matterport, the leading immersive 3D media technology company, has today launched the Pro2 Lite camera.  At £2,195, the Pro2 Lite is Matterport's most affordable camera to date, increasing the range of opportunities for those who want to capture spaces in True3D™.

The new camera delivers Matterport's fast and easy-to-use interactive 3D walkthrough experience and high resolution 2D photography as per the established Pro2 model.  It offers the fully immersive walkthrough as well as the unique 3D Dollhouse perspective, which conveys an immediate understanding of scale and property layout.

A Pro2 Lite user can scan up to 8,000 sq ft of space on four hours of battery life. The camera caters to businesses that are new to Matterport technology and have a need for a lower volume of captures, but still want a high quality product.

Bill Brown, Matterport CEO, said: "Matterport's True3D™ technology offers the world's most advanced 3D reality capture platform for businesses.  The introduction of the Pro2 Lite means that we can service more customers around the world as we launch the high quality camera with a price point that makes 3D captures even more accessible.

"3D capture is becoming the baseline for property marketing, communication and collaboration.  The Pro2 Lite will help fuel that momentum and support our mission to democratise 3D technology. By making Matterport technology more affordable and therefore more accessible, our customers have the tools to set themselves apart in an increasingly competitive industry."

The Pro2 Lite release comes on the heels of Matterport's announcement that it has enabled the publishing of Matterport scans to Google Street View and rolled out significantly faster capture capabilities.  This will allow for both a 3D immersive experience, as well as 2D photos, to be captured in less time than it would have previously taken to capture just 2D photos. This dramatically increases the usefulness, as well as the ROI for customers.

The Pro2 Lite will be shipping in March and is available for pre-order here.

http://blog.insta360.com/little-giant-insta360-nano-s-launches-with-360-video-chat-4k-video-all-new-multiview-shooting/

Los Angeles, January 8, 2018 – Insta360 today launched the Insta360 Nano S, a compact but powerful camera that instantly turns an iPhone into the ultimate tool for capturing, sharing and communicating in 360°.

Ready to shoot stunning 4K 360° video and 20 MP 360° photos, the Insta360 Nano S introduces 360° Video Chat and the new MultiView feature – allowing users to show multiple angles of a scene simultaneously and share them via a live broadcast or one-on-one chat.

“With the Insta360 Nano, we invented a new category – a 360° camera that lets people capture immersive content straight from their phones. Now, the Nano S is taking that concept in a revolutionary direction,” said JK Liu, Insta360 founder and CEO. “360° Video Chat, and the ability to show multiple views of a scene at once, empower people to communicate their experiences more fully than ever.”

The Insta360 Nano S is a next-level successor to the Insta360 Nano, the groundbreaking 2016 camera that helped establish Insta360 as a global leader in 360° photography.

As with its predecessor, the Nano S connects directly to an iPhone’s Lightning port, converting the phone’s display into a real-time 360° camera viewfinder and allowing for convenient capture, storing, editing and sharing of content via the Insta360 Nano S’ companion app. When creators prefer to use the camera as a standalone device, an onboard memory card slot and rechargeable battery make it easy.

Part chat app. Part teleportation device.

The Insta360 Nano S allows users to make a 360° video call to anyone—regardless of whether the recipient has an Insta360 camera. With a simple swipe gesture, recipients of a 360° video call can freely explore the world from the perspective of their caller.

To start a 360° Video Chat, users can simply generate a link in the Insta360 Nano S app and then send it to a recipient via any chat or social app. When the recipient opens the link in their web browser, they’ll get a real-time 360° view of their caller’s environment. Meetings, travel experiences, and calls to family and loved ones, will never be the same.

It’s you. And the view.

Call it cubism for millennials. MultiView lets users take advantage of 360° video’s unique benefit – capturing in every direction at once – but also gives them the freedom to control a narrative and curate their footage to tell a story in the most effective way.

With five different layouts and up to three simultaneous angles, MultiView allows users to adjust the content of each section of a split-screen layout individually. The level of zoom is also adjustable, so that users can zoom out to see a full 360° view projected as a “tiny-planet” in one frame, while focusing on key subjects in another.

MultiView is perfect for sharing context or scenery while also capturing a creator’s reactions.

The Insta360 Nano S’ MultiView feature can be used for live-streaming and video chat, as well as for editing 360° photos and videos in unique ways to share with friends or followers.

Shoot first. Point later.

The Insta360 Nano S supports Insta360’s industry-leading FreeCapture technology.

With FreeCapture, users can reframe the best parts of a 360° video in a standard rectangular frame. The magic of FreeCapture is in the unique method of framing a shot – users can re-capture a scene by maneuvering their phone in real-time to explore a 360° clip, exactly as though they had returned to that moment in time and were filming it with a standard smartphone camera. It’s a clever inversion of the usual work flow – letting users shoot first and point later.

FreeCapture empowers people to focus on enjoying the moment while they’re actually living an experience, with the assurance that they won’t miss a thing – in any direction. Then, once the experience is over, they can take their time to review and recapture the best bits.

Next-level stabilization.

The Insta360 Nano S isn’t big, so it has to be smart. Rather than bulk up the device with an internal gyroscope, Insta360 engineers decided to give the Insta360 Nano S access to the ultra-precise gyroscope that people already have in their pockets.

The Insta360 Nano S syncs with an iPhone’s onboard gyro, and corrects for every wobble and shake in real time, using an all-new stabilization algorithm. The result is buttery-smooth footage that’s a dream to watch.

Ready to share. Anywhere.

In addition to the new MultiView broadcasting feature, the Insta360 Nano S also offers integrated support for 360° live-streaming on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter (via Periscope), letting users share real-time, interactive views of their worlds.

Users can easily share their favorite photos and videos to any major social or chat app straight from the Insta360 Nano S app – regardless of whether the platform offers native support for 360° content.

For 360°-supporting platforms like Facebook and YouTube, it’s as easy as linking an account and hitting ‘Upload’. For others, such as Instagram, Snapchat and WhatsApp, the Insta360 Nano S offers a host of ways to convert 360° content into a ready-to-publish form – from customizable 360° photo pan-arounds, to MultiView and FreeCapture edits, to sharing a link to 360° content hosted on Insta360’s free server.

Dark. Light. Whichever feels right.

The Insta360 Nano S comes in two color options – the stylish silver of the original Insta360 Nano and a sleek new matte black.

The Insta360 Nano S has a suggested retail price of $239.00 USD in the U.S. (regional pricing may vary) and is available globally via the Insta360 Store and Amazon.

See the Nano S, plus Insta360 future tech at CES.

From Jan. 9-12, Insta360 will showcase its full line of industry-leading 360° VR cameras at CES in Las Vegas.

Along with a chance to try out the new Insta360 Nano S, visitors will also get an exclusive first look at two never-before-seen innovations from the camera maker. These technologies represent the cutting edge of immersive image capture, and offer a glimpse into the breakthroughs Insta360 has in store for creators.

Insta360’s CES booth is located in the Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall 1, Booth #21200.
