Sony’s streaming network, Crackle, celebrated their second season premiere of “The Art of More,” with a red carpet event streamed live on YouTube in 360° using the yet to be released Orah 4i 360° camera.

The event lasted for 38 minutes and was the first time I actually caught a 360 live stream as it ocurred. Admittedly, while I am still not blown away by any streaming 360° due to bandwith issues, the camera itself seemed to work flawlessly and is definitely something to keep an eye on, especially for it’s price point, which is available for preorder at $2,995.

About Orah 4i

The Orah 4i is the first all-in-one VR camera capable of capturing and streaming high-quality full spherical 360 video in real-time. Due to its professional 4k image quality, incorporated stitching software and simple integration with YouTube and other 360 video platforms, Orah 4i is a exciting solution for live streaming high-profile events to a wide audience.

Orah 4i was first introduced in April this year by VideoStitch Inc., a leading company in VR solutions previously known for its stitching software.
