About the 360cam
The GIROPTIC 360cam has three wide angle optics, three microphones and produces video footage at a resolution of 2K (2048 x 1024) at up to 30 frames per seconds and 4K pictures (4096 x 2048). On the move, the 360cam gyroscope delivers superior 360° image stabilization. Real-time stitching eliminates the need for post-production or specific software; images and video are recorded as standard files such as mp4 /h264 for videos and jpg for pictures. Time lapse video or photo burst modes allow users to capture the moments they wish with a creative twist, and livestreaming lets friends and family share instantly in real time through live streaming platforms. Additional accessories for the 360cam, including an Ethernet Adaptor and an innovative Light Bulb Adaptor, allow more options to enhance its livestreaming capabilities.
About the App
For iOS, Android and Windows phones, the 360cam app allows users to remotely control the camera over integrated Wi-Fi and to select custom settings, live preview a shot or share content online. The 360cam's integrated GPS can be activated to geo-tag images and recordings exactly where they've been recorded.
GIROPTIC's 360cam is shipping to pre-orders and early backers and will be available to consumer audiences this summer. Products can be pre-ordered via the GIROPTIC website at www.360.tv or in the near future through selected retail partners for a suggested retail price of $499.00.
