    Sphere Stitching Engine

    Teradek Sphere is unique in that it doesn’t require a PC to stitch panoramic footage into a 360º format. Instead, the stitching engine is iOS based and offers real-time compositing of up to 8 1080p camera feeds, allowing you and your crew to be more mobile than ever before.

    Stitching Configuration Options

    The Teradek Sphere iOS application offers numerous parameters for tweaking your 360º footage to your liking. In addition to multiple lens correction options, you can adjust the image rotation and edge alignment of your stitch from the app’s intuitive UI.

    Color Calibration Settings

    Users can calibrate each camera’s white balance, tint, and color profile right from the Sphere application. If you need a quick calibration, the application can color match across all video feeds at the same time to provide a balanced image instantly.

    In-App Recording

    The Sphere iOS application allows you to save individual 360º snapshots and your stitched video footage directly to your iPad’s hard drive in MP4 format.

    Wireless and Internet Connectivity

    Sphere connects to wireless access points and the Internet via a 10/100 Ethernet jack. To enhance the wireless range of your Sphere stream, we recommend connecting the device to a Ubiquiti access point for a robust WiFi signal up to several thousand feet.

    Support for up to 8 Cameras

    Should you need more than 4 cameras for your 360º production, a second Sphere can be daisy-chained using the device’s 10/100 Ethernet port.a
