Discover the World’s First True 3D 360° Camera
Project Beyond by Samsung's ThinkTankTeam is the world’s first true 3D 360° camera. Beyond captures and streams omniview videos in stunning high-resolution 3D. The Project Beyond camera is not a product (yet) but the project currently under development produced its first operational version of the device. Although TTT won’t have the camera for sale immediately, the content generated from Project Beyond will be available to every Samsung Gear VR user immediately. This way, you will not have to wait to teleport around the world with your Gear VR. They have already taken the Beyond camera system to places around the San Francisco Bay area, and plan to take it around the world, giving viewers the ability to teleport to amazing places in an instant...
The small Project Beyond camera head includes 8 stereoscopic pairs of camera covering the whole 360° scene around its center. The integrated electronics do the complex "multiple 3D-aware image stitching" process in real time.
