It’s like something strait out of a Science Fiction novel, only it really is a naturally occurring phenomena. Less than a week away, Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to one of nature’s most awe-inspiring sights – a total solar eclipse.

Pro10 v2 360VR Rig
The Pro10 v2 is a professional tool for filming high resolution 360° virtual reality video content. Positioning YI (shown in image) & GoPro™ Hero3, 3+, 4 and 5 cameras in a spherical orientation, the Pro10 v2 360 Plug-n-Play™ Holder captures 360 x 180 degree videos and photos at resolutions as high as 12,000 x 6,000 pixels. The Pro10 v2 presents itself as our highest resolution model and is ideal for creating content for planetarium domes, dome theaters and large-scale displays. Content filmed with this model can also be experienced with the Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Google Cardboard and the industry’s other leading virtual reality head mounted displays and 360 video platforms.
The close proximity of each camera in the Pro10 v2 configuration offers a high level of frame overlap for each camera’s FOV (field of view). This means objects and subject matter can be very close (3-4 feet) to the unit while filming in comparison to other models without creating distortion and parallax issues during the stitching process.
The Pro10 v2 is a modular redesign of our original 10-camera 360 Plug-n-Play™ Holder. The new design features hinged camera arms for simple camera installation and durability, an anodized aluminum core for improved strength and 3/8” mounting points. The Pro10 v2 is a powerful, easy to use tool for content creators interested in filming interactive, high resolution virtual reality 360° spherical video content.
