The Pilot Era is a new 360-degree camera that can shoot and stitch 8K video footage in-camera, as well as capture 6K video footage and stitch it in real-time.
Announced at CES 2018, the camera has been developed by Pisofttech, which previously developed the 3D algorithm “used in more cameras globally than any other,” according to the company.
“Our core technology is the object recognition algorithm, including motion analysis technology, which enables the panoramic camera to detect and interact with images more accurately and makes it smarter,” said Pisofttech CEO Adler Shen. “This technology will be integrated into the Pilot Era soon, so that the camera can recognize images locally rather than having to upload them to the cloud for recognition and analysis. This will provide a huge performance advantage over systems that rely on the CPU or GPU to run vision algorithms.”
The camera can capture 360 video at 7680 x 3840 at 25fps; 6144 x 3072 at 50fps, 5760 x 2880 at 30fps, or 3840 x 1920 at 60fps. It can also Individual instance of a shot; a take = each time the camera is started and stopped. 360 photos (8192 x 4096 or 10,000 x 5000) and live stream 4K video to Facebook and YouTube. The camera will also feature built-in Pertaining to audio reproduction that captures the spatial acoustic qualities of recorded sound. audio recording.

It also supports real-time preview via its companion app or via the camera’s built-in screen, and can be controlled by the camera’s touch screen, the app, or voice control.
