VRTUL unveiled its next-gen underwater camera system for high-resolution video capture. The VRTUL 3 is capable of shooting up to 27k resolution for 360-degree panoramic displays as well as 15k for domes, planetariums, spherical video, and virtual reality headsets in both monoscopic and stereoscopic formats.
"The VRTUL 3 was spawned out of a need not for 3D as in the past, but for high resolution projection and LED displays. Its specialty is capturing exceptional cinematic imagery for domes, planetariums, and immersive theaters of the future," said company founder Casey Sapp. "There is a growing demand for 8k+ content and this the best underwater camera system in the world for its intended use cases."
The VRTUL 3 is the company's third-generation camera system, following its successful predecessors the VRTUL 1 and 2. The company's legacy 360/VR camera systems have been used on many of the top immersive underwater productions in partnership with the BBC, National Geographic, Good Morning America, and Discovery.
The VRTUL 3 uses 12x ZCam E2 4k cameras with full synchronization, live preview, and global controls for dynamically changing settings underwater.
The camera will be available for rental in January.
