Ozo Virtual Reality camera launched by Nokia.

Nokia has announced that it will arrive in the fourth quarter of this year, and is clearly aimed at professionals but if you have a knack for collecting expensive toys, you’re welcome too.
Manufactured in Finland, the Ozo is the first in the line of upcoming devices from Nokia to fall under the “digital media solutions” category. It comes at a time when the VR business is booming and is in its nascent stages. That’s quite unlike the traditional Nokia approach of neglecting the competition, like it did in 2007 but it better be late than never.
"We're thrilled to introduce OZO to the content creation world, and to define a completely new category of virtual reality capture and playback solutions," said RamziHaidamus, president of Nokia Technologies. "OZO aims to advance the next wave of innovation in VR by putting powerful tools in the hands of professionals who will create amazing experiences for people around the world. We expect that virtual reality experiences will soon radically enhance the way people communicate and connect to stories, entertainment, world events and each other. With OZO, we plan to be at the heart of this new world."


Nokia will conduct final testing and refinements to OZO in partnership with industry professionals, in advance of the product's commercial release. Final pricing and full technical specifications will be announced at a future date, with shipments anticipated in Q4 2015. OZO will be manufactured in Finland.
OZO's filmed content can be published for commercially available VR viewing hardware such as head mounted displays (HMDs), with immersive, full 360-degree imaging and spatially accurate original sound. OZO also integrates into existing professional workflows and works with third-party tools, dramatically simplifying content production at all stages.
As an end-to-end solution, OZO aims to set a new standard as the preferred method for professional capture, editing and playback of cinematic VR content.
