Socionext announced that its Milbeaut image signal processor, the SC2000, now powers the ORBI Prime, the first 360-degree video recording eyewear. The SC2000 in ORBI Prime can handle up to four camera inputs with a single chip. The firm said that its image processing algorithm lets the processor deliver the optimal combination of high-quality video and low-power consumption, making it ideal for applications such as drones and action cameras.
ORBI Prime offers an exceptional hands-free video recording experience. Equipped with four cameras and superior image stitching technology, the innovative, sunglass-type wearable device is capable of shooting total 360-degree video with no blind spots.
“ORBI Prime uses ImmerVision Enables 2.0 to produce smooth, high-quality, full 360-degree views in high resolution. This patented technology delivers data-rich video streams containing camera calibration and position data used to create stabilized, synchronized, and stitched immersive video from the world’s smallest-ever panomorph lenses”, the firm claimed.
According to the announcement, Primax Electronics was instrumental in the development of ORBI Prime by providing expertise in product miniaturization for the wearable camera.
Alessandro Gasparini, ImmerVision’s Executive Vice-President and Chief Commercial Officer said, “ORBI Prime is a fantastic product that goes beyond human sight and takes immersive video to the next level, made possible by packaging the best technologies together with great design and engineering. ORBI, Primax, and Socionext are using panomorph technology to deliver true first-person perspective video for outdoor enthusiasts.”
Chris Wei, Primax’s CTO said, “Demand for products that capture rich, clear high quality WFOV pictures and videos is exploding. The collaboration has expanded our offering of various applications, including the ORBI Prime, to a new height.”
Mitsugu Naito, Socionext’s Corporate Senior Vice-President said, “The SC2000 is one of Socionext’s most versatile, flexible and feature-rich image signal processors. It can handle four image sensors simultaneously without compromising the picture quality. Our close collaboration with ORBI, ImmerVision and Primax enabled the innovative product that features four cameras to the utmost.”
