Lenovo and Daydream are once again collaborating on a new, pocket-sized virtual reality camera that will make capturing VR pictures, VR video and VR live streaming super simple, built from the ground up to support YouTube’s new VR180 video format.
This new collaboration with Google follows our announcement in May of a Daydream standalone headset and the 2016 launch of the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro, the world’s first Tango-enabled smartphone.
Streamlined VR content creation
It shouldn’t be complicated to take VR photos and video that feel immersive and are easy to view—all it takes is a simple point-and-shoot camera that slips into your pocket. Let your friends and followers experience your trip to the Maldives in a completely new way by posting and sharing your VR180 video on YouTube. You can even live broadcast in stereoscopic VR180 via YouTube, inviting your family, friends and followers to join in the fun at a live event or come along for the ride on whatever you’re doing at that specific moment.
Optimized for YouTube’s VR180
We optimized the VR camera for YouTube’s VR180 standard; VR180 videos focus on what’s in front of you, are high resolution, and look great on desktop and mobile. They can transition seamlessly to a VR experience when viewed with Cardboard, Daydream and PSVR. This allows you to view the images stereoscopically in 3-D, where near things look near, and far things appear far. VR180 also supports live-streaming videos, so you can be together in real time. Easily share with one, a few or all your friends through YouTube, in VR. Your friends and family can also experience this through Lenovo’s standalone VR headset enabled with Daydream.
With each new Lenovo VR device we’re makings VR increasingly accessible. To stay updated on this development, please sign up here for updates.
