HamiltonBuhl® Introduces the SpectraVR™ 360° Virtual Reality Camera

Create and Discover Fully Immersive Experiences for Teachers and Students

Fairfield NJ, Jun 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) - Trusted educational products manufacturer HamiltonBuhl® is excited to introduce  SpectraVR™ 360° Virtual Reality Camera, the next step forward in their impressive line of STEAM products.

This educational tool allows students and teachers to create immersive Virtual Reality (VR) experiences for the classroom. Using the two ultra-wide lenses, front and back, it turns the overlapping images into a single spherical 360° image. The dual-lens system records from every direction, displaying multiple angles in one frame. These pictures or videos are specifically formatted for VR viewing.

Eva Boker, Vice President of Marketing at HamiltonBuhl®, explains what value this innovative technology can bring to the modern classroom, “Society is moving away from just being content consumers and are instead becoming creators. Virtual Reality is an amazing way to transport students all over the world, without needing to leave the classroom. The SpectraVR™ 360° Virtual Reality Camera gives students and educators the power to create their own engaging experiences, which they can then share with classmates or students. Encouraging collaboration, creative thinking, and a quest for knowledge, the SpectraVR™ 360° Virtual Reality Camera is an incredible addition to any learning environment.”
