Bublcam Exhibits the Evolution of the Camera as the First Fully Spherical Consumer DeviceRepresenting the Next Wave in Digital Storytelling, Bublcam Captures Moments Through 360-Degree Lenses (August 05, 2014)
TORONTO, ON -- (Marketwired) -- 08/05/14 -- As the only fully spherical consumer camera in the world, the Bublcam is a device backed by the most forward-looking software in the industry to provide users with the ability to capture spherical photos and videos and share them with anyone, anywhere.
"Since its incarnation, the camera has been a pivotal tool to help people capture moments and tell stories," said Sean Ramsay, CEO of Bubl. "Bublcam takes digital storytelling to the next level with zero blind spots and a fully spherical experience. More than just a camera that shoots on a horizontal plane, Bublcam enables consumers to pan anywhere in a given shot and then incorporates an online sharing feature to stream or upload content directly from the device."
Bubl's current collaboration with Google allows anyone with a Bublcam to upload spherical photos directly to Google Maps, StreetView and Google+. With features including real-time image stitching, self-calibration and image stabilization, a four-camera, tetrahedral design for zero blind spots and live video streaming, the Bublcam changes the way consumers capture moments and share their experiences.
The camera also features professional controls, including HDR, white balance, contrast and gamma, all in a device the size of a baseball. By utilizing the Bubl API & SDK, others can create software applications that can fully control the Bublcam and develop features on top of the current app to enable more forward-looking features like facial and image recognition, interactive touch points, motion tracking, cloud-based storage connectivity and integration to other virtual reality devices.
Bubl's software applications will allow for iOS, Android, Oculus VR, Windows 8 (Xbox One), Chromecast, PS4 Amazon Fire and Avegant integration. The company's goal is to allow for the consumption of spherical or 360-degree content across every major digital platform and device.
To highlight the evolution of the camera, Bublcam has created an infographic titled, "A Short History of the Camera."
The Bublcam is the world's first fully spherical camera available to everyone, providing users with the ability to capture spherical photos and videos and share them with anyone, anywhere. Portable and lightweight the Bublcam can go anywhere and uses Wi-Fi to allow you to live stream directly to your mobile device.
