"AMD Radeon™ GPUs and AMD Accelerated Processing Units are widely recognized as high-performance platforms for augmented, gestural and virtual reality technologies. We are proud to support Immersed as an opportunity to foster new Canadian expertise in these exciting areas of graphics innovation." - David Nalasco, Senior Technical Marketing Manager, AMD
We really want to give a shout out and express our appreciation to the Premier Sponsors who have stepped forward to make the Immersed conference possible. In tandem with Founding Partners Canada Media Fund and the Ontario Centres of Excellence, these leaders are making it possible to hold the first industry-building conference designed to meet the needs of the virtual reality, augmented reality, stereoscopic 3D, and gesture tech communities on the East Coast. Their efforts are further supplemented by the growing number of exhibits that will be showing brand new content, technology, and ideas.
So the word is out! The Samsung Developer Conference has revealed that they have developed a 360-degree stereoscopic 3D camera system ("Project Beyond") complete with streaming functionality in full HD form.
According to Samsung, they have a series of these cameras running all over California and from their presentation stage as well.
360-degree 3D image capture seems to be the new territory everyone is fighing for to supplement HMD solutions on mobile and desktop. No word on price or quality yet, but similar to technologies by Jaunt and NextVR, this is a crtiical step in helping make sure there is enough VR-Ready content to sustain and grow the industry long term. Good stuff!
