VR INNOVATION – BREAKTHROUGH TECHNOLOGY – Identity Capture Camera
IC-Cam® was custom engineered for the production of Agent Emerson as a head-mounted 21-camera system to capture the immersive intensity of our action-filled first-person POV film, which appears seamlessly as one continuous shot in high quality 360 VR 3D. The 3-axis stabilization system compensates for all the movements of the operator, resulting in smooth camera movement that ensures constant comfort for the audience watching the filmed footage in a VR headset.
