ozo live by nokia.
Nokia has entered the professional VR production market with its OZO+ cameras and software. Their vision is to offer a full suite of products to create, deliver and experience VR with the highest quality possibly imagined. One of these products is OZO Live. OZO Live enables realtime capture and broadcast of VR content. Nokia turned to Jayway for building the web application that is used for controlling the stitching, color correction, audio mixing, etc of the final output stream.
The challenge was to build a robust web based application for real-time changes that could be extended with new functionality.
The main focus has been the stability and reliability of the application. Every single frame drop is associated with a price tag and any interruption could be very costly for any broadcast production. Although Nokia controls and owns the design, Jayway have been inspirational and influenced the final design.
Overall an amazing group effort. The team has been at times divided between three timezones working around the clock: Sunnyvale, Helsinki and Tokyo. Jayway had the main responsibility for coordinating and delivering the web application.
