MONTREAL, Canada – August 31st, 2015 - Vantrix, a global provider of media optimization and delivery solutions to video and mobile service providers, announced today that it will be showcasing the world’s first demo of live 360° broadcast video using a 6K single panomorph lens on C360’s broadcast camera system. This demo, along with live HD immersive 360° videos streamed in real-time on TVs, VR head-mounted displays and mobile devices, will be featured at IBC 2015 (Stand 14.J06) taking place in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
This breakthrough panomorph super-wide angle single lens, designed by ImmerVision for C360, allows broadcasters to capture and stream live 360° videos without panning or stitching. Users can view 360° broadcasted events live, in full HD, from multiple angles and views on a second screen across multiple platforms including: TVs, VR displays and mobile devices—all from one single video source.
“Vantrix is excited to partner with ImmerVision and C360 to offer a breakthrough integrated live HD streaming solution for 360-degree experiences,” said Jean Mayrand, CEO and president of Vantrix Corporation. “Our ultra-high-density media processing solution provides the power to optimize immersive, real-time multiscreen video experiences for consumers.”
“Collaborating with Vantrix and C360 ensures that broadcasters have access to a complete end-to-end solution–capturing and delivering live 360° HD content with a single panomorph lens camera,” said Pascale Nini, president and CEO of ImmerVision. “For the first time, TV viewers will have an immersive viewing experience and the ability to access 360° HD content through their second screens on their TVs, computers, VR headsets and mobile devices.”
“Imagine seeing a football game, auto race, boxing match or concert from the best seat in the house broadcasted live in 360° on your TV at home. Then imagine discovering new details from different angles on your VR headset, smartphone or tablet, as if you were there live,” said Evan Wimer, CEO of C360. “Broadcasters have an opportunity to leverage the C360, Vantrix and ImmerVision team solution to deliver an immersive 360° experience to their viewers.”
