Google Working On Cinema Grade Virtual Reality (VR) Cameras With IMAX

Google is Working with IMAX on Cinema Grade VR Cameras

Scott Hayden | May 19, 2016

Google Jump, a 360 camera system and processing software platform announced at last year’s Google I/O, is adding IMAX and Yi Technology to its roster of camera manufacturers.
Clay Bavor, Google’s VR team lead, took the stage during the I/O 2016 talk ‘VR at Google’ to tell the crowd about the company’s future addition to the Jump platform.
“Hollywood is asking us for a cinema-grade Jump camera. And we’re going to build them one – with IMAX,” Bavor told the crowd. “[IMAX] is going to be bringing their decades of experience, camera design, optics, sensors and more to Jump, and we’re incredibly excited what we’re going to do with them.”
