Sydney, Australia-based virtual reality studio Start VR today announced its official partnership with Nokia Technologies, making the studio one of the first in the Australasia region to showcase the OZO camera – a groundbreaking stereoscopic virtual reality camera for professional content production.
The OZO camera debuted in North America in November 2015; this partnership will usher in new productions at Start VR, which will be among the first to benefit from the camera’s capabilities, including spherical and stereoscopic video capture with spatial audio array.
“Start VR is the first official partner with Nokia Technologies in Australasia to create content using the OZO camera,” says Malachi Bierstein, Nokia Technology Head of Sales, Digital Media.
“After meeting the company’s highly talented Head of Content Martin Taylor, Start VR became our top choice for a collaborative partnership whereby the studio would champion the OZO camera in the Australasia region.
Start VR is a company turning out an impressive slate of VR projects, from interactive films to brand stories to business and educational VR applications. What we are impressed with is the cinematic approach to VR and their active work in developing the VR community in Australia and, along with it, the OZO.”
