Here are some videos that could be early samples from the Yi 360 VR, a 360 camera with 5.7K video from action camera company Yi Technology.
The Yi 360 VR is probably the most significant announcement to come out of NAB, with game-changing 5.7K video (or 4K with in-camera stitching) and 2.5K live streaming at just $400. To put that in context, each frame of the Yi 360 VR video has about the same resolution as a Ricoh Theta photo (!).
Two readers independently spotted some videos that may be samples from the Yi 360 VR.
First, Kate Crosby found these videos that were labeled as test live stream videos from the “Yi 360 camera,” which seems to be a test from a Yi Technology employee. The video resolution is only 720p, but that could be because of the limited internet speed in China (presumably).
There are other similar videos from the video’s author. Despite the low 720p resolution, the video is actually quite detailed. In this frame grab, you can see the individual holes in the grill of the file holder, a level of detail I would not have expected from a 720p live stream.
