The VR hardware is becoming more affordable these days, as second or even third generation headsets are ready to be released, and more brands enter this market, trying to offer the most competitive prices. Samsung is planning to release its standalone 4K VR headset next year, but the Korean giant also intends to develop a whole VR content pipeline with the newly announced 360 Round VR camera. According to Samsung, the new camera is set to “provide VR specialists with a durable and manageable solution for capturing, viewing, and editing VR content.” This way, VR content creators can record the footage with the camera, edit it on Samsung’s laptops and check the results on the Samsung Gear headsets.

The 360 Round camera offers genuine 3D depth, unlike other solutions currently on the market. It comes with 17 lenses (8 pairs around the circular case and 1 on top), and is able to stream in 4K 360 degrees with spatial sound. Samsung reinforced the casing so it is waterproof and dustproof, so content creators could use the camera in less than optimal weather. Included with the 360 Round is a proprietary “controlling and stitching” software that makes editing easy. More info on the specs can be found in the press release.

Samsung’s 360 Round VR camera will begin shipping October 31 and has an MSRP of $10,500.

I first stepped into the wondrous IT&C world when I was around seven years old. I was instantly fascinated by computerized graphics, whether they were from games or 3D applications like 3D Max. I'm also an avid reader of science fiction, an astrophysics aficionado, and a crypto geek. I started writing PC-related articles for Softpedia and a few blogs back in 2006. I joined the Notebookcheck team in the summer of 2017 and am currently a senior tech writer mostly covering processor, GPU, and laptop news.
