Nokia Develops Virtual Reality Camera

Nokia unveiled a virtual reality (VR) camera for professional content studios.

The OZO, which it the first in a planned portfolio of digital media solutions from Nokia Technologies, was conceived at the company's R&D facilities in Tampere, Finland. It captures stereoscopic 3D video through eight (8) synchronized global shutter sensors and spatial audio through eight (8) integrated microphones. Software built for OZO enables real-time 3D viewing.

OZO's filmed content can be published for commercially available VR viewing hardware such as head mounted displays (HMDs), with immersive, full 360-degree imaging and spatially accurate original sound.
