360 Degree Camera Guide 2017

Sky Light, a leading digital imaging device and solutions provider for the home imaging industry and a pioneer in the virtual reality (“VR”) industry, has announced the successful launch of its own branded 360-degree camera — “ION360 U”, which is the first seamless 360-degree camera that is also a protective case and charger for phones.

The Group unveiled its new ION360 U at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards in U.S. on May 21 (U.S. time) as fans were immersed inside the scenes at the awards show through live and exclusive content. ION360 U allows users to instantly share a 360-degree view of a story or live stream it to friends or family through social media platforms. Instead of seeing into a static moment, ION360 U brings people into that moment. With ION360 U, consumers don’t have to change the way the phone is used or download content to another place. The device transforms a phone into a 360-degree camera with a seamless integration of hardware and software.

Mr. Tang Wing Fong Terry, Chairman of Sky Light, said, “The successful launch of our 360-degree camera marks another major milestone for the Group to become a brand-driven smart imaging devices and solutions provider. The global launch of ION360 U has advanced Sky Light a big step on the international stage to offer this ultimate 360-degree view experience to the customers. Moreover, we are positive about the Group’s future development, and will continue to maintain our market position through a broader product portfolio, thereby aiming to expand revenue streams and create long term and stable returns to our shareholders.”
