Developed by VideoStitch, Orah 4i is the first all-in-one VR camera designed to simplify the real-time production of full spherical 360 video.

Until today, a live VR video production workflow relied on an array of small cameras put together on a holder. Videographers then dealt with multiple cables, power supplies and a variety of small hardware components. Orah removes these inefficiencies and numerous points of failure and lets them focus on what really matters to them for creating compelling content. Our team developed a solution that streams 4K resolution live virtual reality video to headsets-all with the push of a button. In addition, the ambisonic 3D sound capture capabilities of Orah enable the viewer of the content to locate the origin of the sound source with a VR headset, bringing the feeling of immersion to a stunning new level.

VR is a platform gaining momentum thanks to the delivery of head-­mounted displays to end users. Yet it will only become a sustainable industry with massive, high quality content production. Orah unleashes the potential of the market by directly addressing this critical issue.
