Experiencing a Whole Environment with Ricoh’s Theta 360-degree Camera

No comments

Leading name in professional printers and copiers, and renowned for its high-quality optics and optical components, Ricoh announced a prototype of its newest Theta 360-degree camera at this year’s NAB Show in Las Vegas.

 

The camera is capable of capturing high-resolution 4K video in a single shot (30 frames per second), and allows 4K 360-degree livestreaming, with a built-in 4-channel microphone to record spatial “surround-sound” audio. The new camera is expected to be launched later in the year.

 

Ricoh offers the industry’s most extensive line of spherical imaging cameras, known for their high image quality, sleek design and ease of use. First introduced in 2013, Theta cameras allow consumers to record fully spherical images that show the entirety of a scene in photos or videos. With an ultra-small twin-lens folded-optical system, the Theta series is capable of capturing two wide-angle images and then marrying them into a single spherical image.

 

The camera line’s combination of small size, high quality imagery and incredible functionality are a result of Ricoh’s many decades of experience in advanced imaging and optical technologies.
