    HUMANEYES TECHNOLOGIES DEBUTS THE VUZE XR DUAL CAMERA, GIVING ANYONE THE POWER TO CREATE AND SHARE IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCES IN 360° (2D) OR VR180 (3D)

    With the touch of a button, the Vuze XR transforms from a 360° camera to a VR180 camera, enabling content creators to spontaneously tell any story, from every angle

    (LONDON – July 19, 2018) Consumers and prosumers alike will be able to capture and share engaging content, life’s adventures and memorable moments in stunning 360° (2D) or stereoscopic VR180 (3D), all from one innovative device. HumanEyes Technologies today announced its upcoming Vuze XR Camera, designed to capture, create and share both high-resolution photos and full motion video, in either 5.7K 360° or VR180 formats.

    Available in the fourth quarter of 2018, the Vuze XR Camera will transform storytelling by providing the visual dynamics of a full 360° camera, and with a single click, convert to an immersive VR180 format. The unique dual-camera design is portable, simple-to-use and seamlessly combines two advanced capture systems into one pocketable device, giving content creators, social media enthusiasts, world travellers, adventure seekers, families and creators of all types the power and convenience to record or share live to mobile phones, computers and VR headsets alike.

    The Vuze XR Camera allows users to:

    • Capture and share full 360° or immersive VR180 video or photos
    • “Click” between standard 360° mode (when the camera is closed) and 3D VR180 mode (when the camera is open)
    • Enjoy industry leading, high-resolution, 5.7K video
    • Live stream to popular social media channels

    "The Vuze XR Camera is a must have for anyone with a story or special moment to share, from consumers to prosumers. With powerful 360° and VR180 5.7K camera technology built in, along with instant sharing and a live streaming mode, anyone can enjoy the freedom of shooting their story, the way they want,” said Shahar Bin-Nun, CEO of HumanEyes Technologies. “One camera can now live stream in 360° from a concert, take immersive VR180 pictures of the band, and record your friends singing along to edit and share the full experience later. We’re giving users the freedom to spontaneously shoot content from all angles, or only a few, and we can’t wait to see what’s created with it.”

    The Vuze XR Camera is the latest innovation from the company’s award-winning VR camera line, which includes the Vuze and Vuze+ VR cameras, the first cost effective 3D-360° VR camera solution has made content creation accessible to anyone.

    The Vuze XR Camera will be available for purchase in the £400 price range. Additional camera details, specifications and pricing will be available in the coming months. To see the Vuze XR Camera in action and register to be the first to hear more, visit VuzeXR.com.

  • i am comparing now VuzeXR and qoocam and still can not decide.

    VuzeXR + 5.7k + protective case for 360 mode in the preorder pack

    qoocam + 120 fps + depth map + came earlier and software features seem more finished and advanced

    but little is known about vuzeXR may be they can catch with some of the software features of qoocam later?

    Does some of the members plan to review VuzeXR?

  • Off topic but related: are there VR production rules already in existence? How early is this field on the uptake curve compared to film? 1900? 1910? 1930? I don't mean tech wise (though that is a question in itself), but as a creative medium. What carries over from film production? How is a shoot staged? How is it lit? Has anyone documented the production of a VR movie?

  • @radikalfilm

    It is good idea to make it like topic, I guess.

    Guys who shoot VR professionally could help here.

    For me it looks extremely hard, very limiting. And it seems like this is that industry realized in last year.

    It is also why you see so much marketing push towards using 360 video to make virtual normal cameras out of it.

  • I can't see much upside to shooting narrative in 360, but "virtual normal cameras" is actually pretty exciting (though the quality will need to improve a bit more)

  • @eatstoomuchjam

    Huge issue with virtual cameras is 180 degree lenses (and lack of any hoods), result - extreme suspicion to flares (and lack of contrast).

  • @Vitaliy_Kiselev I've noticed that on mine - in addition, they capture with extremely deep DOF similar to action cameras which makes it difficult/unlikely to get effective subject/background separation - but for pulling off camera movements that would be otherwise impossible or very difficult, I'm increasingly excited by the possibilities.

  • HumanEyes Technologies Initiates Worldwide Shipping for Breakthrough New 5.7K Vuze XR Dual Camera

    Versatile and highly affordable new dual-mode camera for Virtual Reality ecosystem delivers flexibility to capture and share content in 3D VR180 or 2D 360° formats

    NEW YORK, Dec. 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HumanEyes Technologies, bringing Virtual Reality to Reality with its pioneering lineup of Vuze VR cameras, today announced that worldwide shipments to pre-order customers and select retail partners of the new Vuze XR camera began on November 30th.

The Vuze XR was designed to support both with stunning precision, plus it delivers 18MP still photos as well, so it literally is two versatile cameras in one.”
