The 360cam: First Streaming Full HD Ultra-Portable Video Camcorder

The 360cam delivers easy real time streaming video over WiFi, recorded video, and still photos in the palm of your hand
Robin Good's insight:



If you are looking for a live-streaming camcorder capable of shooting full 360° HD video that has an affordable price, the 360cam from Giroptic, being crowdfunded on Kickstarter, has everything you need (including the certainty that you will get one, as the project has reached its planned budget multiple times over).


The camcorder, which is very portable and easy to use, uses three ultra-sharp fish-eye lenses which are all synchronized to simultaneously capture and stitch images in real time.


The camcorder is also equipped with:

  • GPS antenna for image geotagging
  • 3 microphones
  • micro-USB
  • gyroscope for image stabilization
  • rechargeable battery
  • micro-SD card slot (up to 64GB)


The 360cam can also capture photos at 4096x2048 pixel resolution in addition to video recording and live streaming at 25/30fps encoded via H264 and saved as a standard .mp4 file.


Starts at $249 - orderable now - available December 2014

Ok all my friends. This is what I want for Christmas. If you start saving now and you all put your money together, it should be under the tree on Christmas day :-)

Real-Time Panoramic HD Video Streaming with the Panacast Camera


Robin Good: The PanaCast Experience is a new prototype video camera capable of a 200° field of view, live streaming, and with the integrated ability for each viewer to custom select dinamically his favorite point of view.


"In videoconferencing applications, the Panacast goes beyond a stationary, rectangular screen by providing a real-time panoramic view of the room and giving users the ability to pan and zoom the scene from their computer or mobile device."


"The PanaCast uses a system of six cameras to capture HD video at 60 frames per second, and a custom-developed video processor that synchronizes and stitches all the images in real time to create a single, 200-degree panoramic view of the room."


The Panacast camera itself runs an instance of the Linux operating system and features a dual-core ARM 11 processor.


"Altia’s server then uses a low-latency encoding process that allows you to stream the video over a cellular or Wi-Fi connection, unlike some videoconference systems that require dedicated bandwidth.


Remote participants can view video using the company’s Mac or Windows app or on their iPhone or Android devices.


On mobile devices, you can use familiar touch gestures, such as pinch-to-zoom and swiping left or right, to zoom in on notes written on a whiteboard or to pan over to a speaker on the other side of the room."

N.B.: The PanaCast does not have a built-in microphone.


The PanaCast apps are free, and there is no subscription fee for up to two simultaneous remote participants.


The Panacast camera is being crowd-funded through Kickstarter and it has already reached its funding goal much ahead of its deadline.
