AMD Builds the BB360 VR Camera for Arka Mediaworks

AMD is making inroads to the world's second largest film industry, the Indian film industry. Speaking at the 2016 Mumbai Film Festival held last week, the company announced that it is working with Arka Mediaworks, a big-budget production house, to shoot its next blockbuster movie, "Baahubali 2: The Conclusion" in 360-degree VR. Although the primary version of the film is shot in some of the largest 2D production formats, each scene in the film is additionally produced in 360° VR. AMD is separately pushing for VR in Indian cinemas, so the VR experience of "Baahubali 2: The Conclusion" could be exhibited to the masses.

At the heart of this endeavor is a 360° camera rig custom-built by AMD, called the BB360. The rig combines two dozen ultra high-resolution cameras feeding to a workstation with production hardware and VR mastering software made by AMD. The company claims that the BB360 is the most advanced VR camera rig ever built, and makes its production debut with "Baahubali 2: The Conclusion," due for spring 2017.

Stop making toys AMD and get Vega out now you buggers. It's almost like you enjoy Nvidia having free reign in the £500+ market.

Shut up with the VR and give us some bloody good high end gaming hardware.

What is the resolution of one of the camera's, 4K or 8K? If the movie is shot with 8K cameras, than the size of this will be gargantuan.

Sorry. The glory days of HD 58x0 series are long gone. AMD does not have either the budget or the people to design competitive products right now.
