Sonicam is a 360 camera that can capture 4K video in 2D or 3D with realtime stitching, and it can also capture 3D spatial audio using 64 microphones (!).  I posted about it previously and I got to see it at NAB Show 2017.

Here are Sonicam’s specifications:
– nine lenses
– field of view: fully spherical
– 64 microphones
– video resolution: 4K @ 30fps, 2D or 3D
– in-camera stitching
– live streaming capability
– audio output: AAC, ambisonic B format, quad binaural

According to Sonicam staff, the retail price will be $4,000.  However, there will be a Kickstarter in May where it will be available for $2,000, with delivery scheduled in October.   You can sign up to be notified here.
