Innovative technology shop Radiant Images is introducing new 360-degree camera systems today at VRLA Expo 2017 at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
The hexagonally shaped, 10-camera AXA 360 rig is designed to increase options for DPs by accommodating cameras from vendors including Red, ARRI, Sony, Blackmagic Design, and Panasonic, among others.
It will be available in three different sizes, geared to handle everything from the GoPro on the smaller side all the way up to cameras including the ARRI Alexa Mini, Red Weapon, the super-slo-mo Phantom Flex, and Sony’s extreme-low-light UMC-S3C. “Optimum performance can be achieved, whether shooting in low-light environments or looking for maximum resolution,” said Radiant Images co-founder Michael Mansouri in a prepared statement.
Radiant said it would show accompanying power, video monitoring and sync capabilities for the AXA 360.
Also on display at VRLA will be the Sense 9, a VR camera system outfitted with seven Canon C300 Mark IIs. The modular rig can also handle the Alexa Mini, Phantom Flex, Red Weapon and more, the company said.
Radiant also said that it had entered a strategic partnership with Legend 3D’s Legend VR division, with which it will share booth space at the show.
Also at Radiant’s VRLA booth will be SyncStart Technology from Two Bit Circus VR, which allows a group to watch VR in sync; Radiant’s Mobius head-mounted VR rig in v2.0; the Voysys VR Producer software with depth-based stitching system, the Z Cam S1 and S1 Pro four-camera models; the Insta360 Nano and Air, designed for iPhone and Android phones; the Orah 4i live spherical VR camera with integrated live stitching software; the Jaunt One VR camera; the Nokia OZO; underwater rigs, the GoPro Omni and a three-camera snorkel rig with sensors.
Not sure what all of that stuff is? Hit the HP/Nvidia Theater at 3:15 p.m. today (Friday) as Radiant’s “VR Cameras A-Z” presentation is set to cover everything from the AXA rig to the Z Cam.
