Unique camera arrays for  VR and 360 video are the core of 360Rize, a company offering multiple solutions for creating high resolution spherical 360 video.

Manfrotto Distribution US will now add the 360Rize line of patented 360 Plug-N-Play to its inventory of professional video and photo products, serving as a reselling resource for dealers. We wrote here at ProVideo Coalition, back in November 2016, about the patent pending system that allows to mount between three and eight Blackmagic Design Micro Cinema camera 2Ks or Blackmagic Design Micro Studio camera 4Ks for a unique array able to capture 360 video.

360Rize was recently awarded a patent, along with multiple provisional patents for its virtual reality 360 video technology patented 360 Plug-n-Play product lines. These systems re-purpose small action camera’s like GoPro, Yi Technology and micro-cinematic cameras like Blackmagic Designs and ZCam’s into the unique patented 360 Plug-n-Play camera arrays for creating high resolution spherical 360 video. The patent covers the multi-camera holding assemblies which its original 360Heros company brought to the market back in 2012.

360Rize’s hardware products serve as 360 video arrays for multiple cameras and allow content creators to film 360-degree videos at resolutions as high as 16,000 x 8,000 pixels. This includes 2D and 3D stereoscopic VR camera mounts and the 360-degree camera systems. Content filmed with these products can be viewed in large projection domes, Mac’s, PC’s, multiple web and 360 media players or with Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Google Cardboard and other virtual reality HMDs (head-mounted displays).

I am a writer and photographer living on the West Coast of Portugal, a place I tend to call the Atlantic Realm. An area of rugged cliffs and sandy beaches overlooking the sea, a coastal area sitting between the Atlantic Ocean waves and hills and forests with some of the most magical palaces, castles and prehistorical sites for you to visit and photograph. Little hamlets, vast fields, inviting you to a contemplative state of mind. That’s where I live, and the landscape surely makes you what you are.
