The RIG 2:13D100 for the SONY UMC-S3CA video camera represents a new style of VR film production and a new way of storytelling.
Imagine two film cameras with an E-mount, FullFrame Sensor and Exmor prosessor with genlock as standard:
Now imagine two 12mm CZ.
And finally, mount the whole set on the RIG 2:13D100 and the VR 3D 360 Photo/Video camera it is done!!
Knowing that we are using a “FullFrame” sensor and an 12mm optics, we will first take a photographic capture to obtain a 360º scenery, and then we will reorientate the camera in the direction in which the action will take place. We will then capture the video and integrate it into the 2:1 3D photo that we previously captured.
The UMC-S3CA has been conceived as a “CrassCamera” so that its price is not excessively scandalous. You can buy two cameras and two 12mm Carl Zeiss fisheye optics for about 12K, more or less the price of a high end VR 3D 360 multicameras with prosumer sensors and optics.
For the development of this spectacular product I am counting on the experience acquired recently with Sony Action Cameras.
I’ll mount the RX0s on the AZ1 robot. This robotized system uses a Texas Instrument motherboard with a Sitara processor and USB, Wifi, and Micro SD ports.
If I get the Wifi communication protocols of the RX0 I will be able to shoot the cameras from the robot, and once the sequence of capture is programmed, you will only have to press a button to shoot the full panorama.
The Wifi function allows me to remote the set from a simple App, so we will be able to perform both an automatic and manual shot, using this robot as a hot head.
The most interesting function of this robot is the teleportation, quite simply, it’s about the Robot looking in the same direction as you, with your GEAR VR . (Patent Pending).
