Vyu360® Celebrates the Start of the Exciting Age of VR Personal Recording and the Rise of 360 Action Cameras
The impact traditional action cameras have had since their introduction in 2002 can't be overstated. For over 14 years they've captured adventures of all kinds on video, helped people tell their stories in engaging ways and left the world entertained like never before. However, tech certainly doesn't stand still and in 2016, insiders are pointing towards a new trend that is about to unravel. It is the beginning of the mainstream acceptance and use of a new technology that has been slowly catching up to and now blowing past the old action camera one. Check the Kickstarter Campaign page.
It is important to consider that just a few months back on YouTube, no 4K 360 videos could be found. Today more 4K 360 videos are present, most published by professionals. According to Vyu360®, the number of VR experiences available will soon increase exponentially and technology like the one they developed might be key.
One of the reasons why VR360 recording is not replacing old video formats just yet is that the public doesn't quite understand what it is being offered to them. Most people don't understand the advantages of a 360 VR Action Camera. Now that the awareness of what the product offers is rising the demand is going through the ceiling. It's not a shock our crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter was fully funded in two days… and the excitement just continues to grow around the product.

Vyu360® developed a WiFi 4K 360 action camera and companion application that enables most smartphones to easily capture and share 360° media, both video, and pictures. The captured media is compiled by the application, making it easy to preview and share across multiple social media platforms.
Vyu360® proprietary technology offers a unique and practical solution for average consumers with little to no technical experience to record and share High-Res 360° media directly from their mobile devices.
According to Vyu360® highlights of what makes their technology closer to consumers and unprecedented include:
- the ability to record 360 media in 4K resolution, delivering an absolutely immersive experience that viewers feel like they are re-living rather than watching
- the ease of use, comparing to traditional footage that requires mixing angles and editing, 360 videos are recorded at a glance and do not need timely post-production to portrait an experience
- the ease of sharing,Vyu360® developed an app that facilitates sharing by compiling & uploading media in one shot in most social media network, saving people time and trouble
- the practical aspect of not requiring recorded media to be downloaded to a PC prior to sharing
- the IP9K ratings that give the ability to be safely submerged in up to 30 meters of water and withstand any outdoor activity
- the long lasting and expandable capacity with SD memory cards and long lasting battery for extensive usage
