Detu MAX: World's First 3D 8K 360° VR Camera with AI Chip

$189,513

The world’s first 3D 8K 360° VR camera embedded with AI chip for professionals

Detu MAX is a professional grade AI 360° virtual reality panoramic camera that is equipped with true 3D capabilities. The camera can capture stunning 12K images, 8K videos and live stream (wired and wireless) with incredible clarity.

Designed for professional photographers and VR content creators, the camera is equipped with an AI chip to create superior quality UHD real 3D VR images. The AI chip enables real-time object tracking to capture realistic 3D portraits. The deep learning algorithm also selects and stitches together the videos and images inside the camera - without the need for a PC.

Detu MAX has already been awarded with a CES Asia Innovation Award and is nominated for the German Design Award for its outstanding design and features for professional filmmakers and photographers. 

"There’s 3D, 8K, 360, VR, AI, HDR, RAW and stabilization all packed into a metallic body. That turned out to be enough to get the Detu completely funded in just ten minutes on Kickstarter" - Digital Trends

"The 'Detu MAX' camera works by imitating the way the human eye captures its surroundings...This means that the content will be more comfortable for users to experience to push them further into the rendering than ever before." - Trend Hunter

MAX imitates how your eyes capture the world. Create the most lifelike 3D panoramic images and 360° views with binocular visual image simulation. See true 3D images with MAX through VR glasses to experience the most realistic VR immersion.

MAX is the only camera that can take 3D images with perfect clarity from a distance of 1 meter(even 1.1in). All others on the market can only stitch properly from a distance of 3 meters. With MAX content creators are never held back, they can get close to their subject and create the very best 3D content. 

The MAX captures and produces stereoscopic virtual reality 360°. Use VR glasses to experience the most realistic VR immersion, courtesy of the MAX.

Get extreme detail and color reproduction capacity with high-dynamic-range (HDR) imaging and video. Visualize stunningly detailed panoramas at up to 12K resolution.

Ensure professional quality images every time with Detu MAX.

Maintaining the highest quality is critical. With Detu MAX, all photo and video files are preserved in their original format so you’ll always be working with the highest quality RAW photos and LOG videos. 

Store content easily with dual 128GB SD cards. It is recommended to use higher capacity cards especially if filming.

Get real-time object detection. Advanced and powerful AI technology ensures subjects are always in perspective. Simply select the area to be tracked and MAX will do the rest. 

Object-tracking is the perfect tool while live streaming, it can track a presenter walking across a stage and ensure they are never lost from shot. 

Detu MAX includes an AI chip with powerful deep learning capabilities to create 12K photos and 4K 3D videos inside the camera, without the need for a PC.

The AI chip also enables the camera to track objects with ease. 

Engineered to enable users to create 3D VR live streams with ease, the camera can connect to a computer via an Ethernet cable, or wireless live streaming is possible over 2.4G and 5G dual Wi-Fi. It can live stream directly to YouTube, Facebook and other 360°-enabled platforms.
