Nokia has been throwing some early efforts behind high-end VR capture through its oddly beautiful $40k OZO virtual reality camera.
Today, Nokia is delivering a major update to its “OZO Reality Platform” which gives producers the ability to capture, edit and livestream VR footage in a cohesive package.
For a good deal of those in the virtual reality filmmaking industry, every shoot represents a new chance to 3D-print a rig that holsters a half dozen DSLRs frankensteined together. Others looking to capture VR are less adventurous and OZO is sold as a high quality rig that works reliably out of the box. The company’s OZO brand is about more than just the camera however as it builds a suite of software tools to enable more intimate VR editing and more seamless VR live-streaming.
The company has delivered some firmware updates to its camera which it’s now calling OZO+, giving it some new image processing wits as well as the ability to export depth maps.
