Professional virtual reality panoramic camera with integrated AI chip
360° camera specialist Detu today launches the MAX, a professional grade AI 360° virtual reality (VR) panoramic camera that is equipped with true 3D capabilities. The camera can capture 12K images, 8K videos and live stream (wired and wireless) with incredible clarity.
Designed for professional photographers and VR content creators, the camera is equipped with an AI chip to create superior quality UHD real 3D VR images. The AI chip enables real-time face tracking to capture realistic 3D portraits. The deep learning algorithm also selects and stitches together the videos and images inside the camera – without the need for a PC.
The camera is equipped with HDR imaging that provides rich detail in light and dark spaces and a 6-axis gyro anti-shaking system that captures outstanding images while moving.
Engineered to enable users to create 3D VR live streams with ease, the camera can connect to a computer via an Ethernet cable, or wireless live streaming is possible over 2.4G and 5G dual Wi-Fi. It can live stream directly to YouTube, Facebook and other 360°-enabled platforms.
The MAX has a full metal body to help dissipate heat. Its aluminum frame, which features a professional cooling design and effective air duct, greatly enhances the battery life and equipment stability.
The 4800mAh lithium-ion high capacity removable battery supports up to 60 minutes of continuous shooting.
Designed to capture incredible sound as well as images, the camera supports audio with four built-in microphones. With only five buttons on the outside shell, it is elegant and straightforward to use.
Compatible with dedicated iOS and Android apps, users can easily control the camera, as well as edit and share images on social media. It also provides a real-time preview of panoramic images.
Dennis Chen, CEO of Detu US, said: “We created the MAX for professional photographers and video creators to capture true 3D VR content easily. We saw a need for a smarter professional grade camera and made the MAX to fit that need with the integrated AI chip. Whether using it to live stream an event, or photograph 360° images – the MAX has you covered with perfect clarity.”
The Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign kicks off on 13 June with a target of USD $20,000 to put the device into mass production. It has an MSRP of $3,599.
