Sphericam 2 starts shipping

The Sphericam 2, said to be the world’s first 360˚ VR camera capable of self-stitching and live streaming 4K video in real-time, is to start shipping. Full-scale production is scheduled to begin this July following a successful Kickstarter campaign and $5 million investment from China’s Kingnet Technologies.

“The Sphericam 2 is like no other camera on the market,” claims Jeffrey Martin, Sphericam founder and CEO. “It has a global shutter capable of shooting at 60 frames-per-second and the ability to self-stitch and live stream 4K video, and it’s incredibly compact.”

The camera was first announced on Kickstarter in 2015 where it received backing of $450,000, more than four times its initial target. Kickstarter backers and pre-order customers will be the first to receive the Sphericam 2, while large media and technology companies are also said to be eager to start using it. “The recent investment from Kingnet helps us not only accelerate our production timetable but to broaden our product and service portfolio,” says Jeffrey.

The Sphericam 2 is available for pre-order at a cost of £1734/$2,500.
