New Equipment Offerings:

360 Cameras

Always committed to local content, Brookline Interactive Group (BIG) is intent on making connections to larger perspectives. In 2016, BIG is adding more interactive content; website, Virtual Reality demos and events, and classes to help you capture life in full frame!

Instead of only capturing what’s in front of you, in just one frame, 360 cameras allow for a full 360 degree view of the world you are documenting. BIG has purchased the Ricoh Theta 360 camera for members to reserve and check out, and we will have more high resolution 360 cameras this fall.


Theta Cam:

The Ricoh Theta uses two 180 degree cameras front and back to capture two videos simultaneously, which are then stitched together to create one 360 degree video. Because the Ricoh Theta is a consumer camera the 360 degree resolution is lower with only two cameras, in the fall we will have a Camera rig which uses 6 cameras to create 360 degree video with a crisp HD resolution.

Join BIG to learn how to use 360 cameras to create your own locally-relevant interactive project!
