Watch This Fully Stereoscopic 360-Degree Immersive Piano Concert in 8K Resolution

By: | January 10th, 2016

There was a time when 1080p was the highest quality video standard for all of us. But that’s no longer the case.

Since the development of 360-degree video technology, we have moved forward to 4K. Although, nowadays it seems that 8K is becoming the new standard. It is the beginning of a revolution in the video industry that is already affecting the market: Since the development of the first 3D printed 360-degree camera rigs, this technology has become much more accessible.

The video below was recorded with a custom 18 camera rig, which makes it fully stereoscopic. Three cameras on top and another three on the bottom of the camera rig allowed the crew to record not only the 360-degree angle but also the whole sphere. This is probably the first 360-degree music video available in 8k resolution! It is a fully stereoscopic image, which gives you the feel of a deep immersion. Enjoy the 4k resolution while watching it on YouTube, and up to 8k while using your phone with Google Cardboard (depending on phone model).

Watch the newest 360-degree video of Artur Sychowski – a young classical composer. The concept behind this video is quite unusual. The performance was recorded at the Museum of Literature and Kashubian-Pomeranian Music in Wejcherowo. The artist was giving a piano concert in an intimate atmosphere with no audience. Why no audience? To make you feel like he’s playing only for you! And you can feel it clearly as you view it on Samsung Gear VR or Google Cardboard.
