First Look: Nokia OZO VR / 360º Camera

The Nokia OZO is the first real professional, all-in-one VR / 360º video camera. It is designed to make the whole process of 360º video production smooth.

We've been working with 360º video for a while at AbelCine, using everything from GoPro rigs to custom configurations with Sony and RED cameras. All of these are great solutions, and each has their advantages. OZO, however, goes beyond the camera rig and is designed to make the whole process of 360º video production smooth. The camera itself features eight 2K x 2K cameras and captures full 360º audio. It outputs all cameras over a single cable, which allows for live previewing via a custom Nokia OZO application.

You can record a raw stream of all the cameras internally to a media drive or externally to a Blackmagic HyperDeck Studio on SSDs. All the cameras are 100% synced, and the recording is a single file. This live preview and simple, single-file recording make OZO a truly unique tool that allows for easy, professional-quality 360º video recording. We're excited to announce that OZO is now available for rental and sale at AbelCine, so watch my video above to learn more about how this system works.

Want to see the Nokia OZO up close? Make sure to check out our free demo days coming up in Chicago and New York! Make sure to check out our upcoming VR & 360º Video Production workshops too!
