Insta360 and HTC have announced a partnership that integrates Insta360’s new EVO VR camera with HTC’s VIVE Focus and VIVE Focus Plus VR headsets.
The integration enables users to experience real-time VR preview during capture and for instant wireless playback.
A new multi-mode capability in HTC’s headsets enables the integration with EVO, as it lets users connect their headset to a range of third-party devices, including smartphones and gaming consoles.
To pair the devices, users must download the new Insta360 VR app from HTC’s VIVEPORT app, then connect to the EVO’s built-in WiFi.
Users can then play back any 180 3D or 360 photos and videos directly from the EVO’s memory card over a high-speed WiFi connection.
VIVE users can also connect to the EVO during capture to get a real-time view of exactly what their finished project will look like in a VR headset.
