DOUBLE ROBOTICS INTRODUCES 360 CAMERA DOLLY WITH UNIVERSAL 360 CAMERA MOUNT
First-of-its-kind Robotic Camera Dolly & Mount to Take Virtual Reality to the Next Level
Burlingame, Calif. - June 1, 2016 - Double Robotics today unveiled its 360 Camera Dolly with Universal 360 Camera Mount, the world’s first remotely controlled, robotic VR dolly. A project of Double Labs, the company’s internal research and development team, the 360 Camera Dolly with Universal 360 Camera Mount leverages the existing technology of the iconic Double telepresence robot base and can hold any 360 camera up to five pounds. An iPhone 6 (or earlier) or an iPod Touch is required to enable the remote driving feature.
“The 360 Camera Dolly with Universal 360 Camera Mount is a great solution for 360 filmmakers who wish to expand on their approach and begin filming in a more creative way, without any crew getting in the frame,” said David Cann, co-founder and CEO of Double Robotics. “Built on technology that people already love, the 360 Camera Dolly is a game-changer for filmmaking.”
The 360 Camera Dolly and Universal 360 Camera Mount is an expansion of the Double platform. The attachable aircraft-grade aluminum 360 Camera Mount attaches to the Double base using an industry standard ¼”-20 bolt. An iPhone is secured in the mount and the camera operator can drive Double wirelessly from behind the scenes via LTE/4G, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth.
