GoPro Launches Pilot Program For Its New 5.2K Spherical Camera, Fusion

Applications now available for content professionals to be among the first to use GoPro's new camera for Virtual Reality and OverCapture

SAN MATEO, Calif., April 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- GoPro, Inc. (NASDAQ: GPRO) today announced a pilot program for GoPro Fusion, its 5.2K spherical camera designed to be the ultimate capture device for both fully immersive virtual reality content as well as conventional non-VR video and photo formats. Starting today, professional content creators can apply to participate in the pilot program which is expected to roll-out during the summer of 2017. 

"Fusion is just that, the ability to capture every angle simultaneously…as though you had six GoPro cameras fused into one," said GoPro founder and CEO, Nicholas Woodman. "Whether filming for VR or traditional fixed-perspective content, Fusion represents the state-of-the-art in versatile spherical capture."

Fusion is the ultimate spherical capture solution for innovative, envelope-pushing content creators. In addition to high performance spherical capture for fully immersive VR experiences, Fusion's 5.2K resolution enables a new OverCapture creative solution that gives content creators the flexibility to produce conventional non-VR video and photos in HD-quality "punched out" from the spherically captured angles. Not just a VR capture solution, Fusion ensures that traditional content creators will get the shot, while also capturing the unexpected. 

To get a glimpse of the possibilities of Fusion, visit the Inside Line to watch "Relive Reality", an exclusive 360° video featuring JT Holmes, Jeb Corliss, and an African safari.

Fusion is compatible with a broad range of GoPro's mounts and handheld accessories.

This summer, GoPro will be working closely with a selection of pilot partners – including brands, agencies and content professionals – to further refine the user experience and produce inspiring content that demonstrates the creative potential of Fusion.

GoPro plans a limited commercial release of Fusion by the end of 2017. Details on pricing and other specifics will be provided at launch.

Those interested in participating in the pilot program can apply now at www.GoPro.com/Fusion.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
