  • 1Description

Capture and stitch together fully spherical VR video with the QBiC Panorama X & VideoStitch Studio Bundle from Elmo. The Elmo QBiC Panorama X is a complete spherical VR capture system, consisting of four cameras mounted together in a 360 rig. Each camera shoots a 185° angle of view in up to 1080p60 Full HD video, making 360° capture possible with only four cameras. Recordings get saved internally within each camera to up to 64GB microSD cards, sold separately.

Ever wonder what a Formula 1 driver sees while driving at 200mph? This bundle can help you make this into a reality—a virtual reality—for use with VR goggles and on online outlets like YouTube 360.

Once you have your footage, just stitch it together in the sophisticated VideoStitch Studio V2 software into immersive 360° VR videos. VideoStitch Studio allows you to convert the footage from the four cameras to a single 360° video automatically. Furthermore, you can improve the video with features like exposure and color correction, automatic and manual calibration and sync, and video stabilization.

  • QBiC Panorama X Panoramic VR Camera System

    The QBiC Panorama X from Elmo is a camera system that features four individual QBiC MS-1 XP cameras and a specially designed rig to capture 180° vertical and 360° horizontal panoramic video. Each camera supports 1080p video recording at up to 60 fps as well as 5MP photo capture and is equipped with an ultra wide lens with a 185° diagonal angle of view, which makes capturing 360° panoramic video possible with only four cameras. And because the cameras don't use dome lens covers like some other 360° options, they are less prone to unsightly reflections or glare. Footage is recorded internally within each camera to microSD cards up to 64GB, with simultaneous record triggering of all four cameras possible using the QBiC app for iOS and Android devices. The resulting footage is then stitched together using a separately available third-party editing software.

    VideoStitch Studio Version 2 enables you to create immersive 360° virtual-reality videos. Ever wonder what a Formula 1 driver sees while driving 200mph? VideoStitch Studio can help you patch video recordings together to make this a reality — a virtual reality — for use with VR goggles and other outlets in the fast-exploding spherical VR industry.

    VideoStitch Studio is packed with features designed to boost your 360° video post-production, among them the ability to convert multiple standard video files into a spherical 360° video file automatically. VideoStitch Studio is Mac and Windows compatible and allows for efficient balancing of image processing across multiple GPUs, enabling real-time processing even when targeting unusually high output resolutions. VideoStitch Studio supports virtually any type of 360° camera or rig, with the list of dedicated cameras growing. VideoStitch Studio's fast 360° video engine adapts to your needs, from compact form factors to large scale video processing.

    Synchronization is the first step in the stitching process, and VideoStitch Studio offers efficient audio-based, motion-based, flash-based, and A/V synchronization. One of the most useful VideoStitch features is the ability to change synchronization on the fly and instantly review the result. When you change one of the offset values, VideoStitch instantly updates the output preview, and values can be changed while the video is playing.

    VideoStitch Studio features two kinds of calibration algorithms to help you create a panoramic video — geometric and photometric calibration. Geometric calibration looks for control points in your input videos and attempts to match them, after which your images merge together, and photometric calibration will compute your cameras' response curves and vignetting in order to improve the output quality. And for times when you want to edit the automatic calibrations, such as when your scene doesn't have enough details or has many close objects, you can apply manual calibration via optional PTGui and Hugin software solutions.

    Note: VideoStitch Studio can normally be activated a maximum of two times per license. If, for example, you upgrade your operating system and reinstall VideoStitch Studio, the reinstallation will count as a second activation. If you exceed the maximum number of installations, please contact VideoStitch directly and they will help in activating the software additional times.

    Key Features

    Real-Time Preview
    What you see is what you get. Preview the result at full resolution and interactively — as well as at full-screen.

    Import Templates from PTGui or Hugin
    Use PTGui or Hugin to edit and create stitching templates. Import the resulting PTGui and Hugin panoramas as templates in VideoStitch.

    Intuitive Orientation Control
    Shoot with a total freedom of movement, level your spherical videos in VideoStitch. Simply drag the output video to adjust the camera orientation.

    Exposure and Color Correction Keyframes
    Controls for each source video and the 360° output let you edit exposure and color using keyframes.

    Multi-GPU Support
    Speed up your 360° video productions by leveraging more graphics cards. Multi-GPU lets you render a single project over multiple GPUs simultaneously, and assign different GPUs for Studio interface and for the batch processor.

    Automatic Calibration
    Choose one or many frames to automatically generate an optimal stitching template in seconds.

    Video Stabilization
    Record handheld, from a vehicle, or in other applications prone to shake. The stabilization tool in VideoStitch Studio greatly removes camera shaking and vibrations.

    Automatic Exposure Compensation
    Compute automatically the best exposure adjustment for a smooth exposure and color blending of the sources video.

    Frame Accurate Synchronization
    Frame accurate synchronization is the key to successful 360° video recorded from unsynchronized cameras. The full resolution preview in VideoStitch Studio updates instantly when you manually adjust synchronization.
