  • (1888PressRelease) September 19, 2015 - Exhibiting on Thursday 5 November in the main hall next to French Tech (T802), GIROPTIC was selected by a jury of French and Irish experts based on the disruptive innovation of its product and the relevance of its technology.

    The GIROPTIC 360cam is the world's first 360°HD camera featuring three lenses and three microphones, enabling the world around to be simultaneously captured in a single photo or video file for the first time in photo and video history. The GIROPTIC 360cam mobile app also means the camera can be controlled remotely via Wi-Fi and that content can be viewed and shared online.

    Come and experience the true magic behind the GIROPTIC real-time fusion technology embedded in the 360cam. With the press of a button, users can capture incredible 360° video footage at a resolution of 2K (2048 x 1024) at up to 30 frames per second, and stunning 4K pictures (4096 x 2048). Files are recorded as jpg (photos) and mp4/h264 (videos) so can be edited and shared straightaway.

    Users can choose the mode they want to capture the world in:
    1) Video and time lapse to record life on the move.
    2) Photo and photo burst to catch specific moments.

    Users can also take advantage of the unique live mode to broadcast and share the full moment in real time. The 360cam's user-friendly design means that no more than two buttons are needed to manually operate the camera.

    The first immersive 360° camera, the GIROPTIC 360cam is also waterproof, making it the most versatile camera on the market. It can be used for a wide variety of functions.
    - Users who want to travel and record on the go: The 360cam has a removable and rechargeable battery and a tripod mount to adapt it to any camera accessory.

    - Users who want to keep an eye on what's happening when they're away or even make a cool 360° time-lapse of their party: The 360cam can be attached to a light bulb mount and powered using any light socket to stream content directly via Wi-Fi.

    - Professional broadcasters who want to live-stream 360° content without worrying about Wi-Fi performance: The Powered-Over-Ethernet base can be attached to stream a live 360° feed directly from the camera.

    With cameras currently in production and the launch a few weeks away, Web Summit 2015 in November represents a valuable opportunity for GIROPTIC to showcase its brand new product. The leading summit for digital start-ups, Web Summit will act as a link between GIROPTIC and major players and innovative start-ups in the new tech industry, providing a platform for developing new partnerships, fostering new innovations and combining expertise from different sectors.
