Proposed Lytro VR Camera System
Lytro already has consumer still camera that has the rather mind-bending ability to allow you to change the focus of shots after they are taken. They are now proposing a VR system ("Immerge") that should push that envelope even further into the almost magical (to my sensibility, anyway).
The Immerge system includes the configurable light field camera array, a server for storage and processing, a VR video editor and a playback engine.
That combination allows for stichtless videos, multiple perspectives, precise parallaxes and depth data embedded in every frame, the company said.
TechNewsWorldCaptured content is optimized for playback on a variety of high-end headsets, and mobile platforms are supported, according to Lytro.
