NOKIA OZO 360VR Camera
The OZO camera is a 3D, 360-degree virtual reality camera that consists of eight 2048 x 2048 (2K x 2K) sensors, with approximate sensitivity of ISO 400. Each sensor is paired with a wide-angle 195-degree FOV lens, and captures images that overlap adjacent sensors to provide natural stereoscopic views. Cam1 (Side L), Cam2 (Front L), Cam3 (Front R), and Cam4 (Side R) represent the four camera views around the “equator” of the OZO. Cam 5 (Top L), Cam 6 (Top R), Cam 7 (Bottom L) and Cam 8 (Bottom R) complete the 8 OZO camera viewpoints. By design, the camera captures stereoscopic 3D imagery through approximately 260 degrees (+/- 130 degrees from center) oriented to the camera front and sides, with the balance of the 360-degree field of view captured with monoscopic (2D) imagery. There are additionally eight microphones spaced around the camera body for recording spatial audio, which can be exported as a 4.0, 5.0, 7.0, or 8.0 channel 48kHz 24-bit PCM WAV file. The camera records both picture and sound either to its own internal 500GB Digital Cartridge, or to an external Blackmagic HyperDeck Studio Pro 2 or Blackmagic HyperDeck Shuttle recorder via a 1.5Gbps HD-SDI cable. The camera compresses the eight 2K x 2K pixel images captured by the sensors into a single compressed data stream that emulates a 10-bit 1920 x 1080 full HD resolution video frame. Sound captured by the microphones is recorded as 8 discreet PCM channels, synced with the video. To post produce the sound and images from these raw camera recordings, you must first export to an appropriate media and industry file formats using OZO Creator software.
