The NEW KODAK PIXPRO ORBIT360 4K 360 Camera Makes Virtual Reality a Breeze for the Travel Industry

SAN FRANCISCO, CA—(Marketwired – January 04, 2018) – is spreading the news about the new 360⁰ VR camera for the travel industry — an affordable, easy way to integrate 360⁰ video and virtual reality into travel. The new KODAK PIXPRO ORBIT360 4K VR Camera is a compact one–stop shop for filming, stitching and posting 360⁰ immersive visual experiences. Originally targeting consumers, it is also now seeing demand from the travel industry looking to embrace the new technology as a key part of modern marketing campaigns.

“We are very proud to be one of the first companies to bring 360° VR cameras to market over 3 years ago,” said Paul Meyhoefer, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for JK Imaging Ltd., the licensee for KODAK PIXPRO. “The new ORBIT360 4K is our 3rd generation 360° VR camera and answer to the growing demand of every day consumers that want to be able to capture more of their experiences and adventures and share them in social circles.”

“The travel industry has been growing increasingly interested in the use of virtual reality,” says Maria Polk, President/CEO of and publisher of the first, and only, VR newsletter for the tourism industry. “However, while some big names in our industry have dived in, others have been concerned about how to take the first steps as well as the entry cost and the pull on their manpower resources.”

The ORBIT360 4K's innovative and stylistic approach to an all–in–one 360° VR camera, is equipped with two 4K fixed focus lenses housed on either side of the futuristic camera body. Each lens is designed to work in tandem, to capture and stitch 360° video and easily upload 360° photos and videos to FACEBOOK and 360° interactive videos to YOUTUBE, on the go via the camera's smart device.

“Not only is this an exciting tool for consumers but any company in the travel industry universe could benefit from this,” said Polk. “For instance, a tour operator outfitting their guides to capture tour highlights, a destination upgrading their social media feeds, or an attraction renting them to guests so they can record and instantly share their adventures. All for a price point that can fit any travel company's budget.” Learn more about this exciting 360⁰ VR camera or go and read more in The World of VRTourism News.

Librestream Advances its Onsight Platform with Expanded Content Management and AR Capabilities

WINNIPEG, MB—(Marketwired – January 04, 2018) – Librestream is pleased to announce the ninth major release of its proven Onsight collaborative mobile platform, which now includes Onsight Workspace. This specialized content solution is built for industrial teams to securely create, access, and share materials across difficult field environments.

“We started working with our customers over a year ago on a solution to manage and secure access to Onsight images and recordings, allowing teams to leverage these training assets while out in the field. This collaboration expanded into a specialized content solution that now equips workers with access to Onsight visuals as well as content such as asset schematics and manuals,” shared Kerry Thacher, CEO of Librestream.

Kate Leggett, VP, Principal Analyst at Forrester, highlighted the need and value of providing virtual access to information and expertise in the industry report, 2017 Customer Service Trends: Operations Become Smarter and More Strategic. She writes in the report that “successful field service technologies empower customers” and technicians with access to content and expertise. These technologies “can fuel differentiated customer experiences by equipping the technician with the right customer information, parts, and knowledge to get the job done in one visit.”

Onsight Workspace is integrated with the full Onsight platform, which allows teams to upload Onsight content automatically or manually with smart upload options. Authorized users can search and view content on their own to assist in performing inspections or maintenance work in the field. Colleagues can also find relevant content to share in live remote expert calls.

Thacher added, “Throughout 2018, our customers will see us release additional capabilities that focus on digitizing the worker's day. We are advancing our roadmap at an accelerated pace to keep up with our customers' changing businesses, especially within their demanding service operations. This advancement includes Onsight Workspace, which will provide expanded editing tools, guest access, and integration with existing systems.”

This latest release of the Onsight platform also includes expanded augmented reality capabilities such as advanced telestration. While in a live Onsight remote expert call, participants can select from various telestration shapes to draw on live visuals, or enter text to identify key information. A customized snip tool also provides participants with a way to immediately select and share content such as sections of manuals or schematics for additional guidance.
