Panorics launches 360-degree camera system for GoPros
The new PTRig fully-spherical camera system from Panorics allows users to create high-quality virtual reality content with their standard GoPro Hero3 or Hero4 cameras. Panorics said that its new 360-degree camera system has no blind spots and solves most of the common problems of GoPro action camera holders.
“With over $1 billion invested in VR already and more than 30 million virtual reality headsets on the market by 2020, availability of immersive video content is going to be key to the whole industry exponential growth,” Boch said in a statement. “VR is expanding rapidly and there won’t be any industry not affected by its growth. We are very excited to be a part of a new VR era and Panorics works hard on developing innovative 360 video products.”
Using three GoPro Hero3 or Hero4 cameras, the PTRig system allows users to make adjustments to camera settings without taking the cameras out or use their GoPro remote, and is designed a “special bracket” that is designed to work with various mounts and holders.
Other features of the PTRig include:
- 360x180-degree video coverage (no blind spots)
- High-resolution output up to 5700x2850px
- Light weight (516g) allows for a multitude of use cases including aerial and in-motion video
- Strong fixation of cameras
Panorics displayed the capabilities of its PTRig system in an interactive VR video on YouTube:
The PTRig package comes with the plastic body casing, three fisheye lenses, mounting screws, the special bracket, an HDMI cable, three USB cables, and a system carrying case. The PTRig is available now on the Panorics website and retails for $840.
