Interview with Yi Technology about the Yi 360 VR, with the highest video resolution for consumer 360 cameras


Probably the biggest news for 360 cameras out of NAB Show 2017 is the Yi 360 VR, a 360 camera with 5.7K video, the highest video resolution for consumer 360 cameras thus far, for just $399.  I had a chance to talk to Yi Technology about the Yi 360 VR.


Here is the 360 video interview with Yi Technology's Director of Marketing.  Also with me was Svend Even Haerra from NRK, Norway's Public Broadcasting Station.  You also get to see my reaction when I first found out about the Yi 360 VR! :D


(To shoot the video, I used the Nikon Keymission 360 and Guru 360 gimbal.)

  1. how are we going to playback 5.7k video ? most hardware can only decode 4k maximum and for publishing there is nothing between 4k and 8k on youtube.
