The tech company slowly makes its way into the minds, hearts and preferences of consumers with a new item that looks and sounds pretty much promising: Nokia introduced Ozo, a completely new approach on virtual reality cameras, designed for people who create content.
Nokia releases virtual reality camera in an attempt to revamp its image and reposition itself in the eyes of consumers. The device looks as if it comes right back from the future and features eight synchronized shutter sensors and eight microphones that produce stereoscopic 3D video. The specs come from official statements so there’s no need for confirmation, as they got over the speculation standards coming out of random leaks.
Ozo is also provided with an extremely special software which allows viewers to see 3D content in real time without requiring an assembly of panoramic images ahead of time.
The product will be manufactured in Finland, where it was initially developed. The masterminds from Nokia have gathered together on the icy lands of Finland to create and design a completely original product which will most probably propel the brand that had landed territories of oblivion ever since it lost interest in entertaining its users with novelty. But it was nevertheless worth the waiting, because OZO looks great, sounds great and feels great in our hands.
Prices are not yet made available but we expect the item to come at a pretty high cost, as it offers a lot. The camera can capture video in 3D and allows compatibility for the images with other existing VR headsets, such as the Oculus Rift. Nokia declared that people who use OZO can be able to see 3D rendering video in real time, which sounds like a revolutionary upgrade. Previously, different images needed to be put together to create the 3D effect.
“OZO aims to advance the next wave of innovation in VR by putting powerful tools in the hands of professionals who will create amazing experiences for people around the world”, as Ramzi Haidamus, president of Nokia’s Technology Division declared recently.
Its popularity already appears to gain terrain, as a VR film studio stated that it will be Nokia’s launch customer and offer OZO in studios. It will also use footage filmed by the camera in post-production.
Although the product is officially announced, until the official release date Nokia will need to perfom some final tests and adjustments. Full specs are expected to be announced somewhere in the near future. Shipment is expected in the fourth quarter of this year.
