Samsung launches a 360 degree camera called 360 round

Samsung has launched a new camera called 360 Round priced at $10,500. The new camera has been designed to provide VR specialists with a durable and manageable solution for capturing, viewing and editing VR content.


The camera is equipped with two pairs of eight lenses and one is in the center which is staring up. The camera and its lenses are water and dust resistant for outdoor shooting and live-streaming. The new camera can capture 4K video in 360 degrees, allowing a viewer to see everywhere at once in either alive stream or recorded video. The 360 Round builds on Samsung's prior work with its Project Beyond camera.

“The Samsung 360 Round is a testament to our leadership in the VR market. We have developed a product that contains innovative VR features, allowing video producers and broadcast professionals to easily produce high-quality 3D content,” said Suk-Jea Hahn, Executive Vice President of Samsung Electronics' Global Mobile B2B Team. He further said, “The combination of live streaming capabilities, IP65 water and dust resistance and 17 lenses makes this camera ideal for a broad range of use cases our customers want—from live streaming major events to filming at training facilities across various industries.”

The new camera can capture VR imagery with full 3D audio. It has low-latency for live streaming, one-step stitching, and simple editing functions. Each camera has a 1/2.8-inch, 2-megapixel image sensor, and f/1.8 lens. The Samsung Round 360 also has six audio microphones, LAN or USB-C connectivity, 10GB RAM and 40GB of internal storage, with expansion slots for more.


The camera is expected to go on sale at some point in October, while the price of the camera is not announced.
