TAIPEI, Taiwan--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CyberLink Corp. (5203.TW), the world’s leading consumer multimedia software company, today announced that it has partnered with Samsung to make 360-degree video creation available to more consumers with Gear 360 ActionDirector. The software will be bundled with Samsung’s flagship Gear 360 camera, which was just revealed at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
360-degree video is at the cutting edge of video production, creating a completely immersive environment that truly puts the viewer at the center of the action. The user becomes the creator of their own 360-degree video content, which they can easily share on social channels. 360-degree videos have taken the internet by storm with industry titans like Google and Facebook visibly embracing the new format.
As the pioneer in photo and video technologies, CyberLink developed the world’s first consumer level solution that enables a true end-to-end 360 experience from importing through editing and production. The streamlined drag ‘n drop storyboard interface allows users to intuitively edit, correct color and lighting issues, apply slow motion effects, produce and share 360 video on social media platforms in a few clicks without any additional tools. Unlike existing solutions on the market, Gear 360 ActionDirector allows users to preserve complete dimensions of 360-degree videos and create high quality, high impact 360 content for an immersive virtual reality experience.
“CyberLink is constantly looking for new ways to push the boundaries of how people create and play with their digital media,” said Dr. Jau Huang, Chairman and CEO of CyberLink. “We are excited to be teaming up with industry leading innovator Samsung to bring the possibilities of 360 video creation to life for more consumers than ever before.”
Gear 360 ActionDirector is bundled with Samsung Gear 360 camera. Refer to Samsung's announcement for camera availability.
