Product Description Full
The 360Rize 360Abyss™ v4 is a professional underwater 360 video camera system. The 360Abyss™ v4 has an output resolution of 8K , which translates to 8,000 x 4,000 pixels. The 360Abyss™ v4 is rated at 1,000 meter crush depth rating. We suggest a 30% buffer for safety. The 360Abyss™ v4 is the industry leading solution for filming spherical content underwater. The U.S. Navy, NOAA, TIME Magazine, conservationists and award-winning cinematographers trust 360RIZE patented underwater camera systems for capturing spherical content underwater. Over the years, 360RIZE has helped hundreds of filmmakers, oceanographers and educators. For Example, our underwater technology has made it possible to document and share our planet’s aquatic environments. The included Pelican hard case with protective foam safely stores and transports the 360Abyss™ kit, cameras, and accessories.
Our Latest Innovation
The 360Abyss™ v4 positions six GoPro™ HERO3, HERO3+, or HERO4 cameras in a spherical order. Therefore allowing content creators to capture fully spherical 360 x 180 degree 360 video content. Afterwards, post production software stitch together individual videos from each camera to create 360° videos. 360RIZE has solved the image distortion issue all multi-camera 360 video rigs face underwater. A camera loses about 30 degrees of its field of view when underwater. This is due to light bending as it passes through water. The frame overlap between each camera in a 360 rig underwater presents a huge issue with frame overlap. The domes on the 360Abyss™ correct this lens distortion. Furthermore providing a crystal clear image for each camera in the rig while underwater. This makes it possible to stitch underwater 360 video footage with the same ease one would stitch spherical footage filmed above water.
Design in mind
The housing is constructed from anodized aluminum and poly-carbonate doors that produce a neutral buoyancy to depths of 984′ in salt water. Camera domes are constructed from a mixture of acrylic and poly-carbonate for high-strength and optical clarity. To ensure a single leak won’t cause harm to more than one camera, each camera is housed in an isolated individual compartment. Eight standard threaded 3/8″-16 corner mounts allow divers to connect the 360Abyss™to multiple accessories. For example, accessories include a tripod or tray, or lighting. A 45° side mount attachment enables mounting to submarines, ROVs, and other underwater vehicles.
Camera Control Underwater
The 360Abyss™ features the Bullet360 control board system that allows divers to operate the housing’s six cameras in unison. The 360Abyss™ features six built-in control boards that daisy chain each of the unit’s cameras together. Content creators power on, off, and record using a magnetic underwater switch. The magnetic remote switch also triggers a buzzer to provide an audio sync. When filming with multiple GoPro™ cameras at 120 frames per second (FPS), the Bullet360 board provides a universal sync. Moreover, the universal sync ensures that all 6 individual camera’s record within +/- 5 frames of each other. For this reason, close frame sync between each camera helps filmmakers achieve a easy stitching process. Each camera’s individual compartment features a Bullet360 board with an exposed connection designed for the camera’s Hero port (located on the back of the camera).
