Montreal, Canada, April 25, 2017: ImmerVision, the inventor of the 360-degree panomorph lens and worldwide expert in immersive optical and imaging technology, and Vantrix, a leader in next generation video services, announced that the Vantrix PRO camera system for broadcast-quality live 360 capture and VR delivery is certified ImmerVision Enables® 2.0.
The Vantrix PRO series are purpose-built broadcast-quality capture systems for live events such as sports, news, concerts as well as studio and post production. Vantrix PRO series cameras with panomorph lenses complement the Vantrix 360 glass-to-glass system with embedded ImmerVision Enables 2.0 technology for seamless delivery of immersive, consistent high quality VR content.
“The ImmerVision Enables 2.0 certification of our Vantrix PRO camera system raises the bar in terms of flexibility and high quality delivery”, says Vantrix CEO Jean Mayrand. “Broadcasters and sports leagues can seamlessly capture and share high quality immersive events as they happen – imagine seeing your favorite event live in 360 through your smartphone, your TV or being transported right there on your VR headset!”
The panomorph lens used in Vantrix PRO cameras ensure capture of distortion-free 360° video output that requires no stitching, reducing post processing time significantly without image quality degradation, a common issue in stitched video feeds. With ImmerVision Enables 2.0 any viewer can experience 360° content through any mobile device or VR headset or cloud system – simply explore live or playback in 360° without distortion, regardless of where it is stored, how it is published – through a local circuit or the cloud.
“Providing immersive live real time experiences to viewers is the key to transforming passive viewers into active participants,” says Pascale Nini, President and CEO of ImmerVision. “Vantrix is delivering an enabling system for capturing and sharing new high quality immersive entertainment experiences for all – this is real next level VR technology.”
