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.
