New Samsung 360 Round Camera Can Livestream 4K 3D Videos At 30 FPS

Meet Samsung’s brand new triple threat, the Samsung 360 Round, which records 3D, virtual reality, as well as 360-degree videos in 4K resolution. But with eye-watering specs comes an eye-watering price.

Samsung unveiled a new digital camera on Wednesday, 18th of October, which is flanked with an incredible 17 cameras and 6 microphones producing immersive 360-degree virtual reality content in glorious 4K resolution.

Unlike the company’s entry level Gear 360 camera, the Samsung 360 Round seems to be for genuine pros – that’s, pros that have loads of cash to spare. The 360 Round features beastly performance but that will come at a lethal price point: $10,500.

Samsung showed off the camera at the Developer Conference of its in San Francisco, and the business says in a press release that it is specially made for “developing and streaming high-quality 3D content for specialists and enthusiasts who demand a superior virtual reality (VR) experience.”

What are the Features and Specs of the Samsung 360 Round?

The 360-degree camera is capable of live streaming 4K VR movies at a solid 30fps, and as mentioned, the puck-shaped device is surrounded by 17 2 megapixel cameras to capture stereoscopic 3D, VR, as well as 360-degree videos in UHD 4K. There is also some native software program which works to stitch together an immersive video with practically no lag.

Inside, there is a massive 10 GB of RAM and 40 GB of internal storage, which is a huge amount but certainly necessary for a unit that regularly records large 4K files. It supports USB-C or LAN connectivity and can easily be hooked up to an SSD with up to two TB of storage.

Pros who often shoot in poor weather conditions to get scenic, breathtaking shots of rain falling on landscapes won’t have to worry, as the 360 Round features IP65 Dust and Water resistance.

When is the Samsung 360 Round Release Date?

Samsung is going to ship the 360 sometime this month (October) in the United States, and other countries will get it not too long after. Though it is really worth keeping in mind that despite the camera itself in the first place costing a lot of money, the PC you will need for live streaming and post-processing will add significantly to your outlay if you do not have a high spec machine currently.

For processing video, Users must, at any rate, have a 64 bit OS for 4K, at least 16 GB DDR4 RAM with more being better, an Intel Core i7 6700K chip or better, and a Nvidia GTX 1080 chip. On the other hand, live-streaming and broadcasting will need at least a 10 core i7 6950X chip, 32 GB of RAM, and 2 – yes, 2 – GeForce GTX 1080 Ti GPUs. So if you’re looking to get the latest tech, you will need to flash the cash.

That will not be a problem for pro content creators, producers, as well as filmmakers who likely already possess a machine capable of this without too many upgrades required.

Not got the budget for this? Maybe the regular Gear 360 is what you are looking for.
