Nokia Ozo futuristic new camera for filming virtual reality

Nokia Ozo, a futuristic new camera for filming virtual reality. Designed for Hollywood, not for consumers.

Nokia Ozo was revealed back in July, 2015 but we come here today to show you the fundamentals & How it is going to be? But first of all let’s take a look at The New Nokia Ozo Overview.

Nokia Ozo, the first commercially available virtual reality (VR) camera designed and built for professional content creators and first in a planned portfolio of digital media solutions from Nokia Technologies, the company’s advanced technology and licensing business.




OZO captures stereoscopic 3D video through eight (8) synchronized global shutter sensors and spatial audio through 8 integrated microphones. Software built for OZO enables real-time 3D viewing, with an innovative playback solution that removes the need to pre-assemble a panoramic image – a time-consuming process with solutions currently in the marketplace.

OZO’s filmed content can be published for commercially available hardware such as head mounted displays (HMDs), with immersive, full 360-degree imaging and spatially accurate original sound. OZO also integrated into existing professional workflows and works with third-party tools, dramatically simplifying content production at all stages.

For Hollywood types, Ozo has number of selling points. It’s a camera that lets them make VR in real time, thanks to pair of key features. The first is live monitoring: directors can view footage as it’s being shot on a headset. The second is rapid playback. In the past, VR footage needed to be digitally stitched together video for playback in as little as a few minutes, Nokia says.

When it debuts, Ozo will join a nascent but rapidly developing market for VR creative tools. In May, after acquiring a VR company, GoPro announced it was building a spherical camera mount to record immersive video. Later that month, the company announced a separated 16-camera system designed to be used with Google Jump. Jump, announced at the Google I/O developer conference, intends to be a full-featured ecosystem for VR filmmaking. Samsung is building a camera rig as well.

Nokia says Ozo is the most advanced VR filmmaking platform yet. It certainly looks amazing – a spherical rig the size of a large cantaloupe, roughly 2.72 kg, with 8 optical image sensors spaced roughly an eye width apart. Audio is captured in three dimensions by 8 microphones embedded in the camera, and the result is audio that helps to locate you in space. If you hear a dog barking behind you in Ozo-produced VR, look behind you – you’ll see the dog.

Ozo affixes to a standard tripod and outputs video in standard formats. You can watch Ozo video on a headset like Oculus’ or as a 3D video posted to a site like YouTube. The goal was to make a systme that would integrate into filmmakers’ existing workflows, Nokia executives said, and not to trap them in proprietary file formats.
