LiveShell X natively supports YouTube Live 360-degree live streaming (in beta)
Cerevo provides an usage environment for “RICOH R”currently under development by Ricoh
Cerevo, an Internet connected consumer electronics manufacturer based in Tokyo, Japan, expands the usage areas supported by its high end PC-less, full HD H.265 live streaming device, LiveShell X, by adding YouTube Live 360-degree live streaming. LiveShell X now supports in beta the fully spherical, 360-degree live video streaming camera RICOH R. The camera has just begun taking pre-orders today, with shipments scheduled to start in May 2017.
YouTube Live’s 360-degree live streaming is currently possible with the LiveShell series, but it is necessary to adjust advanced settings in the YouTube Live management service “live control room” as well as in the LiveShell series Dashboard. In the newly released beta version, YouTube Live 360-degree live streaming has been added to LiveShell X Dashboard using the YouTube Live API, so YouTube Live 360-degree streaming is now possible by simply selecting it in Dashboard.
At the Ricoh booth at Mobile World Congress 2017, to be held from 27th February in Barcelona, Spain, 360-degree live streaming using RICOH R and LiveShell X will be demonstrated via the beta version environment that has been developed. 360-degree live streaming for LiveShell X is scheduled to become available for public release this Spring.
Please see below for details of the RICOH R Development Kit and the demonstration at Mobile World Congress 2017.
