Vecnos launches ultra-slim 360-degree camera IQUI designed for easy shooting and sharing
YOKOHAMA, Japan, Sept. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Vecnos Inc., the visual revolution company spun out of Ricoh Company, Ltd., today announced the availability and specifications of its ultra-slim, 360-degree IQUI (pronounced ee:kwee) camera. Designed for use with the previously launched IQUISPIN app, IQUI makes shooting and sharing 360-degree content fun and easy.
The new IQUI camera and IQUISPIN app provide a completely new experience for consumers, making creation of and sharing one-of-a-kind 360 images a snap. The camera-app duo overcome the significant limitations associated with sharing 360-degree photos over social media, as most social platforms lack support for the 360-degree file format. In addition to controlling the IQUI camera, the IQUISPIN app—available for iOS and Android devices—cleverly converts 360-degree still pictures shot with the camera into a several-second MP4 video clip with a small file size that can be easily shared on any social media platform, as well as email and text.
Elegantly Designed, Simple to Use
A proprietary quad-lens optical system, with three side lenses and one top lens, delivers high-quality image capture and makes it possible for IQUI to be significantly smaller than any other 360-degree camera on the market.
Vecnos CEO Shu Ubukata, who led the team that developed the world's first consumer 360-degree camera at Ricoh, designed the IQUI camera to be a new kind of imaging device for a new generation of visual creators. He said: "IQUI is the first 360-degree camera to achieve this level of compactness, while maintaining a high standard of visual quality and excellent usability. Our goal is for this revolutionary product to bring the fun and inspiration of 360-degree photography to a wider range of consumers."
Easy & Fun Results with IQUISPIN App – IQUI exclusive Effects and Filters too
Starting October 1, the IQUISPIN app provides exclusive functions only to IQUI camera owners: special Effects, Filters, and the ability to remove the IQUISPIN watermark. In addition, the new Filter function will be available to all IQUISPIN users, allowing them to customize the color palette, brightness, contrast, etc. of their photos.
Via IQUISPIN, users can easily connect an IQUI camera to a smartphone to operate IQUI remotely and sync data. IQUISPIN's automatic image syncing enables a seamless workflow for viewing and editing photos on smartphones by automatically forwarding photos and videos from the IQUI camera to the user's smartphone when connected to IQUI's Wi-Fi.
"The IQUI camera's simple operation combined with the IQUISPIN app's unique enhancement capabilities will add a new dimension to how memories are captured and shared," commented Ed Lee, founder and principal analyst at Rise Above Research. "The ability to readily share the IQUISPIN images over any social media network is especially important for gaining widespread adoption," he added.
