HumanEyes Technologies, a leader in photographic 3D, animated content, and lenticular graphic arts, has unveiled VUZE, the world’s first consumer, portable 360° 3D VR camera and dedicated software studio that is set to bring immersive content creation to the masses.
Priced under $1,000, the VUZE camera and software studio is both a technological breakthrough as well as a quantum leap forward for the industry that is currently only served by large, complicated devices requiring Hollywood blockbuster type budgets.
The VUZE camera combines advanced 3D and 2D capture technology using 8 Full HD cameras within an easy-to-use “point-and-shoot” form-factor. The VUZE Studio brings groundbreaking advances in 360 3D content creation with near real-time processing (1 minute per minute) and seamless stitching thanks to a proprietary technique called Adaptive Blending that mimics the way the human eye interacts with the brain to form pictures in the mind. Finally, the VUZE agnostic approach means content can be enjoyed on its own lightweight VUZE VR Headset or on ANY VR player, VR headset, cardboard or 3D device or TV.
Featuring a stylish design, the highly portable VUZE camera will be available in a variety of vibrant colors and comes with its own purposely engineered and versatile “selfie stick” and tripod. It’s battery and removable SD card can capture up to one hour of video allowing people to capture and relive every part of the world around them in breathtaking detail.
VUZE has been built on its own innovative technology architecture and is controlled by a dedicated iOS and Android app. Inside the device are 8 Full HD cameras that simultaneously capture images, videos and sound to facilitate full stereophonic and 360° 3D spherical content.
Each camera uses ultra-wide and vertical angle lenses to capture 120° and 180° vertical images and together generate 4K VR content. Within the app, users can see any of the 8 camera views as well as preview and delete content. VUZE can capture both 2D and 3D 360° spherical images and videos and can effortlessly switch between the two. Finally, its internal processing and compression capabilities render easy-to-edit H.264 HD video files that transfer to users’ home computers and laptops.
VUZE will be creating and demonstrating 360 VR throughout CES at the Sands Expo Center, Hall G booth # 82717.
