With its discreet format and easy handling, this advanced 360° camera has a number of fields of application. Travel agencies and real estate agents can use Ricoh Theta V to present houses and hotels to clients. Project managers and site managers can document the state of the construction work, even in narrow places.

Stroll the fair site with Theta V and get a new chance later to comfortably review the various showcases in the office!

Share your recorded 4K videos or stream directly

With Ricoh Theta V we have reached a milestone in Ricoh’s development of 360 degree cameras. This is the company’s first model to use the Android OS, which opens up an array of interesting possibilities. For instance, users can now install apps and thereby get access to new functions. These are being developed just now.

With a significantly more powerful processor, Theta V can record movies with twice the resolution compared to earlier versions, and thanks to 19 GB built-in memory there is also room for both videos and images. More specifically 40 minutes 4K video or 130 minutes in full HD. Alternatively 4800 spherical panorama images with a resolution of 14.4 megapixels.

If you want to record and share your experience directly, Ricoh Theta V also offers the possibility for Live Streaming – even in 4K resolution!

3D omnidirectional sound reproduces overwhelming realism

Equally important news is that the camera now also records sound in 360 degrees, that is omnidirectional, reproducing overwhelming realism. Theta V is equipped with a built-in 4-channel microphone, and has a socket for Ricoh TA-1 accessory microphone, delivering 3D sound of even higher quality.

Built-in wireless connection makes it easy to share your recorded material. The Wi-Fi transfer is 2.5x faster than with the predecessor Theta S, and a power-saving Bluetooth technique (new feature) the camera may be constantly connected to a smartphone without the battery running out of power. Ricoh Theta V now also supports the technique Miracast, which means that you can quickly and easily show images and videos on a TV without using cables.
