Nokia unveils OZO virtual reality camera for filmmakers

It allows users to capture audio and video in 360 degrees.

By CBR Staff Writer

Nokia has unveiled a new virtual reality (VR) camera for professional content creators as part of its plans to re-enter the consumer market.

The OZO camera features eight synchronised shutter sensors and eight microphones that produce stereoscopic three-dimensional video. It allows users to capture audio and video in 360 degrees.

Nokia said special software for the camera will allow people to view three-dimensional content in real time without the need of pre-assembling a panoramic image.

The OZO camera integrates into the current professional workflows and works with third-party tools, simplifying content production at every stage.

Nokia Technologies president Ramzi Haidamus: "OZO aims to advance the next wave of innovation in VR by putting powerful tools in the hands of professionals who will create amazing experiences for people around the world.

"We expect that virtual reality experiences will soon radically enhance the way people communicate and connect to stories, entertainment, world events and each other."

Nokia will carry out final testing and refinements to OZO in partnership with industry professionals, ahead of the product’s commercial release.
