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.
When Insta360 Nano creator Orion published a video showcasing London’s famous sites in 360 degrees, he had humble hopes of topping 10,000 views.
Instead, his “Tiny Planet” romp around the city earned him an enthusiastic write-up in the Daily Mail – whose monthly readership ranges in the hundreds of millions.
We talked with Orion, an avid Periscoper with a day job as a marketer, to find out how he’s grown his 46,000-and-counting audience with his Insta360 Nano (the only 360-degree camera supported by Periscope) and where to see the best sunsets in London.
Tell us about yourself! What do you do as a viral video marketer?
I’m Orion and I’m from London. I’m originally from the Philippines but have been living in the UK for 7 years now. I make videos go viral for work. My boss makes videos for brands, and I do the marketing side of it.
It is a delight to announce the Insta360 Nano has received the coveted Innovation Honoree Award in the Virtual Reality category at CES.
Insta360 launched the Insta360 Stereo, Insta360 Air for Android, Insta360 Pro–Professional 360° and more at IFA 2016.
With these products you’ll be able to shoot and live-stream hemispherical 3D panoramic and VR video. Plus, the Insta360 Air launch has been confirmed for Android this November, following the success of Insta360 Nano for iPhone.
