Designed to take the complexity out of immersive live production, the new 12G glass-to-glass flypacks optimized for live VR/360° streaming from Supersphere will be showcased at the 2018 NAB Show.

Supersphere, a leading VR/360° production studio, will debut its 12G glass-to-glass flypacks optimized for live VR/360° streaming at this year’s NAB Show, in Las Vegas.

Supersphere’s immersive live streaming flypacks include:

  •  Cutting Edge Cameras: Each flypack is standard equipped with Z CAM K1 Pro 180° cameras and Z CAM S1 Pro 360° cameras, and customizable to any camera as productions demand.
  •  Flexible Switchers: Equipped with Blackmagic’s latest ATEM Production Studio 4K live production switchers to facilitate multi-camera live production across a range of video sources.
  •  End-to-End VR Workflow: Assimilate SCRATCH VR Z enables real time geometry, stitching, color grading, finishing, and ambisonic audio.
  •  Integrated Transcoding and Delivery: Offering fully integrated transcoding and delivery, Teleos Media’s VDN (Video Distribution Network) delivers immersive experiences to any device, anywhere, with instant start experience, sustained 16 Mbps at high frame rates, and 4K + VR resolutions. Clients can easily build custom 360° video players on their websites or apps as a destination for live-streamed content, in addition to streaming directly to YouTube, Facebook, and other popular platforms.

“These flypacks provide an incredibly robust workflow that takes the complexity out of immersive live production – capable of handling the data required for stunning high resolution projects in one flexible end-to-end package,” said Lucas Wilson, Founder and Executive Producer at Supersphere. “Plus with Teleos’ powerful VDN capabilities, we make it easy for any client to live stream high-end content directly to whatever device or app best suits their customers’ needs, including the option to quickly build custom, fully integrated 360° live players.”
