GoPro Releases the Odyssey 16-Camera VR Rig

Publish date:

Sean O'Kane reports in The Verge that GoPro is selling a 16-camera VR rig, the Odyssey, to professionals only.

“The wild, behemoth 16-camera virtual reality rig that GoProannounced at Google's I/O conference is officially called Odyssey and is now available for purchase. But it is not for everyone. It costs $15,000, and only ‘professional content creators and producers’ will be allowed to buy it — after they submit an application.

“That price tag might make your eyes spin, but it does cover a good amount of equipment. Buying an Odyssey means you get 16 of GoPro's top-of-the-line Hero 4 Black, a microphone, the rig and all the necessary cables, a Pelican case to carry it all in, as well as a warranty and support. For a production company that's looking to get into the virtual reality game but doesn't necessarily want to go the DIY route, this could be the best option.”
