Vantrix PRO25-AQUA cameras deliver broadcast-quality video for underwater immersive 360 VR.

MONTREAL, Canada – November 17, 2016 – Vantrix, a global leader in next generation video services for transcoding and 360 virtual reality systems, today announced the Vantrix PRO25-AQUA camera, its new broadcast-quality system for 360 capture and VR delivery.

The Vantrix PRO25-AQUA camera is purpose-built for underwater operation with a sealed dome that can withstand water pressure up to depth of 100 meters, and is suitable for use in aquariums, water sports, oceanography and sub-marine filming. Vantrix PRO25-AQUA comes in both vertical and horizontal configurations and includes a battery for autonomous operation.

“We are delighted to launch the AQUA version of our Vantrix PRO25 camera”, says Vantrix CEO Jean Mayrand. “The AQUA camera enables underwater videographers to capture video in high quality and deliver immersive experiences. We are entering an era of 360 VR video everywhere, which now also extends below the water surface.”


Vantrix 360
The Vantrix PRO-25 AQUA camera complements the Vantrix 360 glass-to-glass system for immersive VR content capture, cloud processing and delivery to a player for VR headsets, mobile devices and TV.

Camera capture
The camera’s panomorph lens outputs distortion-free 360x182° video that requires no stitching, reducing post processing time significantly without quality degradation, a common issue in stitched video feeds. A control station performs all the camera functions including aperture control, focus and color grading.

Live streaming
The camera generates a massive 25Gbps hemispherical video feed, which is processed by the control station and prepared for livestreaming via the cloud, and/or handoff to broadcast systems. Local recording for Video-On-Demand playback is also supported.

Broadcast ready
The camera delivers market-leading resolutions of up to 5000 x 5000, up to 12-bit color depth and 240fps frame rate. Broadcasters can individually control up to 4 HD (1080p60) virtual cameras and integrate via SDI into existing production workflows.

The Vantrix PRO-25 AQUA system includes the camera, battery, control station and a cable bundle.
