Insta360 Pro Raises Bar For Professional VR Imaging and Gives Creators Unique High-Performance Tool for Immersive 360-degree 3D Content
Las Vegas - CES 2017(06 Jan 2017)
Insta360, the world’s leading manufacturer of creative 360-degree cameras, and winner of the CES 2017 Innovation Honoree award for the Insta360 Nano, today announces the launch of its ground-breaking Insta360 Pro professional VR 3D camera at CES 2017.
The standalone camera raises the bar for professional VR imaging with 8K resolution, 3D image and video capturing, and immersive livestreaming capabilities.
Advanced VR Imaging for Professionals
Insta360 Pro offers a powerful VR imaging system for professional photo and video creators as well as non-professionals who demand excellence from the camera they use to pursue their creative visions.
Insta360 Pro captures up to 8K 360-degree videos and leverages 6 independent, high-definition lenses. It captures 60-megapixel 360-degree 3D stills and supports both HDR and RAW formats to bring out levels of detail and low-light performance unprecedented in a 360-degree camera of this size. When recording 4K video, the camera supports up to 100fps.
In addition, the VR time-lapse mode adds a new dimension to videos and the live preview function allows users to get the best angle before shooting.
High Performance Real-Time Image Stitching
Insta360’s world-class real-time image stitching technology allows 360-degree video in up to 4K and offers both H.264 and H.265 video compression, which substantially improves video quality at the same bit rate. Higher definition image files can be easily auto-stitched with Insta360 Studio.
3D Images and Videos
Insta360 is enhancing the imaging potential of the Insta360 Pro by offering professional 3D 360-degree video by applying the same 3D video capturing capabilities as Hollywood films. Able to capture 3D videos in up to 6K (4K in real-time stitching mode), it presents an exciting, new form for professional photographers.
Insta360 Pro can easily live-stream 4K video to any 360-degree live streaming platform and gives creators a new immersive way to share their visual masterpieces. As a standalone camera, it can be used with both the dedicated Insta360 Pro iOS and Android apps and connects via WiFi, Ethernet or 4G, ready to livestream any event or share instantly on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.
“Insta360's most advanced technology comes together in the Insta360 Pro, the most powerful, all-in-one VR and 3D content capturing platform that empowers you to create the unforgettable. Never before has such power been put into an easy-to-use, compact system that enables users to share their VR content live with international audiences.” said Liu Jingkang, Insta360 CEO and founder.
Price and Availability
The Insta360 Pro's RRP is set to be around $3000 and will be available on Amazon and Insta360’s official online store later this year.
