Joergen Geerds - The Future of Array Video Cameras

Joergen Geerds - The Future of Array Video Cameras

Joergen Geerds is going to present us the first compact fully spherical video camera rig, known as the 360 Rig.

The 360 Rig allows to record material for 25/30/48 fps 4000x2000px equirect videos, with the advantage of free positioning, great portability, and no nadir blind spot. Since all the processing/stitching/blending is handled in post, the 360 Rig has a very user friendly weight of only 570 gram (excluding battery and monopod), freeing the panovideographer from bulky equipment to carry with them during the filming.

Joergen will talk about what inspired him to develop the 360 Rig, what technical challenges came with the prototyping process, and give an outlook how the post-processing of 360 videos is going to look like in the near future.
