GoPro's Omni rig is an end-to-end solution for VR video creators
Omni's GoPro's professional VR content solution.
And looking at it, you might be like, it's just another holder, something that's been available For years, but while it does hold six Hero4 black cameras for capturing immersive 360 video, it's how it does it that's important.
Using the connector at the back of each camera, the aluminum rig Actually synchronizes to cameras so they operate as one.
Turn on the master camera and the remaining five come to life.
Press Record and all of them start recording.
And if there's a problem with one camera, it'll let you know which one and won't start recording until it's Fix.
The cameras can be powered off their batteries or there's an external power supply that will run them for up to three hours.
All the clips get stored to micro SD cards in the cameras which would be a potential nightmare if the cards got mixed but Omni tags each file with its position in the rig.
So when you offload your content using the Omni Importer the order is managed for you.
The Importer gives you a preview and calibrated stitching, but for editing goPro includes color auto panel video editing software in the package.
There are plugins for Adobe Premier 2 including one that lets you create a regular 2D movie out of a 360 clip.
goPro has a free player too with oculus support, so basically for the $5000 all inclusive package, you're getting everything you need to shoot, edit, view, and share immersive video.
