The Insta360 Nano offers exclusive native support for Periscope live 360 video.
The Twitter-owned live-streaming app Periscope rolled out its new live 360 video feature to everyone today, allowing Insta360 Nano users to share immersive experiences with the world in real time.
Users can share 360-degree Periscope broadcasts on either Twitter or Periscope. The Insta360 Nano is the only camera natively supported by Periscope’s iOS app, making a 360 live-stream as easy as tapping a button.
iPhone, Android users covered for one-touch live 360 video
The leading 360-degree camera maker Insta360 introduced support for Live 360 on Facebook today, letting users share full, immersive experiences straight from their phones in real time.
Insta360 worked closely with Facebook to ensure a seamless, integrated user experience, and with this integration, Insta360 cameras are recognized by Facebook as a way to make Live 360 “easy, reliable and fun”.
“The way we communicate is getting more and more visual, and live 360 video is the richest medium of all,” said JK Liu, founder and CEO of Insta360. “We’re excited to bring Facebook users a way to go live in 360 that fits in seamlessly with the way they already use their phones.”
Real-Time Image Stabilization on the Way
The Insta360 Air, a smartphone add-on that instantly turns Android phones into 360-degree cameras, is now on sale across the United States and Europe.
“The Air is what we’re all about — cutting-edge technology that empowers people to capture and share experiences just the way they live them,” said J.K. Liu, CEO and co-founder of Insta360. “We can’t wait to see what the world’s Android users create.”
Android and iOS account for more than 90 percent of the world’s smartphone users, and the release of the Air means all of them can now enjoy seamless 360-degree photography and live-streaming. The Insta360 Nano, launched last year, offers a plug-and-play 360 experience to iPhone users.
Insta360 has partnered with Huawei to bring cutting-edge 360-degree cameras to a broad range of users around the world.
At an event in Beijing on February 21, leading smartphone maker Huawei announced that it would release a clip-on 360-degree smartphone camera co-branded and developed by Insta360. Called the Honor VR Camera, it will be promoted alongside Huawei’s online-focussed Honor range.
The Insta360 Pro 8K camera made its debut at the world-renowned technology conference CES in Vegas this week.
The standalone camera raises the bar for professional VR imaging with 8K resolution, 3D image and video capturing, and immersive live streaming capabilities.
