A camera that can shoot 360 spherical images in a single shot Top of the range model that delivers 4K 360 video and spatial audio recording


RICOH COMPANY, LTD and RICOH IMAGING COMPANY, LTD. announced the launch of the ''RICOH THETA V'', which supports features that include 360° 4K video capture, immersive spatial audio recording, and high-speed image transfer. The RICOH THETA V is the new top of the range model in the 360° ''RICOH THETA'' camera series.

Since the RICOH THETA was first launched in 2013 as the world’s first 360° single shot camera*1, this exceptional imaging tool has been used to capture exciting and unique fullyspherical images in a variety of situations. The 360° visual space has defied the conventions of traditional photography and allowed users to capture their entire surrounding in one image. These can even be shared with others using a VR headset, allowing them be fully immersed in the scene, as though they were actually with there.

The rapid growth of the virtual reality (VR) market, the expansion of SNS (Social Networking Services) supporting 360° and the ever-increasing demand from the B2B sector, means that the opportunities to utilize the extensive capabilities of THETA are expected to expand further in the near future.

The RICOH THETA V has a compact, lightweight body, so it’s portable enough to take anywhere, anytime. Featuring the sleek design and handling THETA users have come to expect, it takes the 360° photo and video experience to a whole new level. It’s packed full of performance-enhancing features, but some striking additions to its armoury, put this device at the cutting edge of 360° innovation.

Furthermore, it achieves high-speed transfer that can comfortably exchange large volumes of data, high sound quality recording compatible with 360° spatial audio, and shoot equivalent 360° 4K video. The camera can also connect to a smartphone or tablet using either Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, for flexible operation. In addition, the Ricoh Theta V features an open source Android operating system, allowing for future performance enhancements through firmware updates, whilst also opening up the platform to even more developers.
