Halsey Minor’s Reality Lab Networks Unveils Streaming VR System, Live Planet

The live-action virtual reality camera and production world, while young, is already quite robust. Samsung’s Gear 360 and the Ricoh Theta have staked out the low-end, mass consumer space with an under $400 price tag. On the “cinematic” end of the spectrum, there’s the Jaunt One, a professional quality camera that can be rented for $4,500 per day, and Lytro’s Immerge, a system that could cost as much as $500,000 depending on the configuration. Then there’s the middle, prosumer category—such as the $5,000 GoPro Omni and the Orah 4i, which offers live streaming 4k video for around $2,000. – Sean Captain, Fast Company http://ift.tt/2a1RSIc
