Vuze 3D VR Camera Unboxed

Vuze 3D 360 camera – unboxing and first impressions of the first affordable 3D 360 camera for consumers

This is the most-anticipated 3D camera for VR video yet.

Make sure your hardware can handle the stitching software:

And now you’re probably waiting to see sample photos or videos.  Unfortuantely, I don’t have any. That’s because I found out my [admittedly old] PC doesn’t meet the requirements to run the stitching software.  My PC is actually VR-ready but the problem is that I’m using an old Xeon processor.  The stitching software requires a processor with an AVX extension.

Here are the minimum requirements:
– Windows 8.1,
– CPU with AVX support,
– 4GB RAM,
– Integrated or discrete GPU with 2GB RAM,
– DirectX 11,
– OpenCL 1.2,
– the most recent drivers.

Here are the recommended requirements:
– Windows 10,
– CPU with AVX support,
– 8 GB RAM or higher,
– Fast discrete GPU (NVIDIA,AMD) with 3GB RAM,
– DirectX 11,
– OpenCL 1.2,
– most recent drivers.

believe this means that at a minimum, you need an Intel i3, i5, or i7 Core processor that is at least 3rd generation (example: i5-3xxx).  See this table.  You can see if your PC qualifies simply by downloading the software here and trying to install it.  If you can install it without error messages, then congratulations – your PC qualifies.  (Note: the Mac version of the software is coming around Summer 2017.)

There’s an unboxing video at the post itself.
