All-rounded live stream­ing

Ri­coh’s 360-de­gree live stream­ing R De­vel­oper Kit be­gins ship­ping.

HWM (Malaysia) - - APERTURE -

Early this year, the Ri­coh R De­vel­oper Kit was re­vealed at CES 2017. The cam­era was de­vel­oped and aimed specif­i­cally at live stream­ing 360-de­gree video. More­over, the De­vel­oper Kit would also give de­vel­op­ers the abil­ity to come up with apps that would work with the de­vice.

Dur­ing CES, Ri­coh said that the new cam­era kit would see sale and de­liv­ery around Spring 2017, and true to its word, the com­pany is de­liv­er­ing on the prom­ise. The Ri­coh R De­vel­oper Kit is now avail­able to or­der for US$499 (ap­prox. RM2,137). The cam­era is ca­pa­ble of live stream­ing fully-spher­i­cal, 360-de­gree video in 2K res­o­lu­tion, and at 30 fps.

The kit will con­sist of the cam­era it­self, a cam­era stand, a soft­ware de­vel­op­ment kit (SDK), as well as im­age con­trol tools and source code. Ri­coh said that they hope the SDK and source code will en­cour­age third-party de­vel­op­ers to build apps for the cam­era. Be­sides the cam­era hard­ware, the kit will also in­clude a Ri­coh R Con­sole im­age con­trol tool, the Ri­coh R Con­sole source code, a guide on how to do 360-de­gree live stream­ing on YouTube, in­for­ma­tion on user’s fo­rum for de­vel­op­ers, and other tools and tech­ni­cal in­for­ma­tion.
