B&H Photo is excited to announce the addition of the 360Heros brand to its product catalog, giving customers access to virtual reality accessories and software built specifically for use with GoPro cameras. At the heart of 360Heros is a range of especially-designed “Plug-n-Play” mounting systems that bind together anywhere from six to 14 GoPro HERO4, HERO3+, or HERO3 cameras. Taking advantage of the GoPro’s ultra-wide lens, the mounting systems capture an image from every direction, with a combined resolution of up to 12,000 x 6,000 for a 10-camera system. Various configurations are available, with options that let you capture full 360-degree spherical video and even stereoscopic 3D video.
The resulting footage captured from each GoPro is combined using separately-available stitching software. To make things easy, 360Heros offers its own 360CamMan V2 video stitching and virtual reality management software. With support for multiple card readers, the software automates the ingest and aggregation of images, potentially saving you hours in post. It can then export to 3D formats optimized for the Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Google Cardboard, and other VR systems. It can also create panoramic still photos, or supply sync data for further editing in Adobe Premiere. Footage can also be uploaded to places like YouTube, videos.360heros.com, and VRideo.
