V.360°™ is now shipping

VSN Mobile today announced that their 360-degree action camera, the V.360°™ is now shipping. The $399 device is the first camera to use a 4K, 16 Megapixel imager to capture 1080p, full 360 degree videos and still shots.

That high quality backside illuminated 4K imager is the key to the true HD resolution in all 360 degrees. It’s pretty impressive to consider that the 6480 x 1080 image is larger than three 1920 x 1080 images laid side to side. That’s 6480 x 1080 at 30 frames per second.

Video is saved to a microSD card and can be viewed live while shooting or played back later through free Android or iOS companion apps. The app lets users pan through a 360 degree video or image, or lay it flat in a unique panoramic view.  If using a smartphone as a remote isn’t in the cards, the V.360° is bundled with a dedicated remote.

Protecting the camera is a military standards certified housing, resistant to shock, vibration, dust and water immersion. That casing is essential to protect the precious cargo. Beyond that imager, the V.360° camera also includes a GPS sensor to tag locations, a barometer/altimeter and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor to handle the task of capturing, de-warping and encoding 360 degree images, all in-camera.

“With a traditional camera you need to point, then shoot. Instead, V.360° captures life’s most astonishing moments at every angle simultaneously, so missing the perfect shot is a thing of the past,” explained Peter Aloumanis, President of VSN Mobil. “We also made it tough enough for most environments — so this unprecedented device truly changes the game.”

Compatible with GoPro mount-based accessories, the V.360° can be attached to just about anything or anybody. If 360-degree video is your thing, take $399 to www.v360life.com and place an order.
