The Es­sen­tial ac­ces­sory for 360de­gree video record­ing

The Freeman - - LIFESTYLE -

Amidst all the at­ten­tion drawn on the De­cem­ber avail­abil­ity of Ap­ple’s “iPhone X” in the Philip­pines, one smart­phone brand man­aged to turn a lot of heads its way by com­ing out with an ac­ces­sory that al­lows for easy 360-de­gree video record­ing.

Dubbed the “Es­sen­tial Phone,” the smart­phone model is bun­dled with an op­tional 360- de­gree cam­era ac­ces­sory that can be used to broad­cast live record­ings via Face­book’s “Face­book Live” fea­ture – with sup­port for Twit­ter’s “Periscope” fea­ture to fol­low.

Weigh­ing less than 35 grams, the ac­ces­sory cam­era can cap­ture 360-de­gree videos at up to 4K res­o­lu­tions. It also comes with sup­port for spa­tial audio record­ing.

The ac­ces­sory is a com­ple­ment to the phone’s builtin 12-megapixel dual cam­era sys­tem.

De­vel­oped by Andrew Ru­bin – the lead de­vel­oper of Google’s An­droid mo­bile op­er­at­ing sys­tem – more in­for­ma­tion on the “Es­sen­tial Phone” and its 360-de­gree cam­era ac­ces­sory is hosted on the brand’s of­fi­cial on­line pages.
