CES 2016: Quantum Leap VR with 16 high-def cameras captures stereoscopic videos in 360-degree
It was back at the Digital Hollywood event in October last year, when we had the first glimpse of the Quantum Leap VR system. Developed by technology driven company called Reality Lab, the Quantum Leap VR system is a small, cylindrical camera that houses 16 high-definition cameras to shoot stereoscopic images in 360-degree and it’s here at the Consumer Electronics Show, 2016, in Las Vegas. The camera rig is basically designed to support emerging sector of live streaming virtual reality broadcasts. The system enables professional quality delivery of live virtual reality video compatible with all major VR platforms including Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR.
With a vision to offer the world first-of-its-kind, real-time high-resolution stereoscopic VR experience, Halsey Minor’s Quantum Leap VR system is one wholesome device comprising custom camera, software, video processors and streaming clients.
Each captured footage is perfectly rendered and stitched together in real-time, minimizing VR post production requirements and all kinds of video glitches experienced in VR otherwise. The footage is in higher resolution than supported by any of the other VR headsets available. Interestingly, Quantum Leap VR allows virtual 3D objects and animations to be inserted into its live virtual reality streaming.
