Vu Technologies has launched the Vu 3D camera in India, priced at Rs. 19,990. A 16MP camera, it can record full 1080p HD video in both 2D and 3D, at 30 frames per second. It is available at Vu stores across the country.
With the Vu 3D camera, users will be able to capture 3D still photographs as well. It features dual lens-dual sensor (DLDS) technology (two 16MP sensors), allowing it to capture stereoscopic images. Interestingly, Vu has also given the Vu 3D camera a 3.2-inch autostereoscopic LCD display (320x480), not requiring glasses.
Users can connect the Vu 3D camera directly to an HDTV, via its HDMI port. It features 128MB of built-in storage, which can be expanded via SD card slot (up to 32GB). Optical zoom in 3D mode is up to 8X, while in 2D mode, it is up to 10X.
The Vu 3D camera features a F3.2 lens with a 5.1mm focal length, and records video in H.264 (avi) format. It can record 720p HD video at 60fps in 3D and 2D, take still images in 2M, 5M, 16M (firmware Interpolation) sizes, and 2D still images in 2M, 5M, 8M, 16M (firmware Interpolation) sizes.
Commenting on the launch of the Vu 3D camera, Vu Technologies’ CEO, Devita Saraf said:
“At Vu Technologies, we have always been ahead of the curve in terms of innovation, be it with products like the Super TV or the TelePresence. The 3D camera is another such innovation, and we are pleased to be introducing it at a time when the market truly understands technology. We believe that our product will see immense demand in a country like India for several reasons. First, there has been a huge sale of 3D TVs in India with very little access or availability to true 3D content. Second, conversion of 2D to 3D in conventional 3D TV doesn’t really give the real effect of 3D. Through this introduction, we aim to bridge the market gap and offer a solution no product in the current market scenario offers.”
