Aug. 29, 2017 – 360fly, Inc., maker of the category-leading, single-lens camera that captures stitchless 360-degree video, today announced a software upgrade to its existing 360fly mobile app that enables Android and iOS users to live-stream 360-degree video on Facebook. Users can now live stream their experiences in real time with the 360fly HD and 4K cameras in 720p or 1080p to Facebook. The soon to be released, 360fly 4K PRO will include this capability as well.
Android and iOS users can easily sync their 360fly camera and access the live-streaming feature with the free 360fly mobile app to live stream uncropped videos to networks around the world. With a 4G LTE data connection, users can live stream any experience from anywhere, such as corporate events, real estate open house or property management, sporting events, travels and adventures, to everyone who can’t be there with them to experience it.
“Instantaneous and seamless live streaming within the leading social media platforms is something consumers have come to expect, and we’re thrilled to be on the front end, pushing the 360-degree video category forward with this exciting and innovative functionality,” said Peter Aloumanis, President of 360fly. “360fly is committed to delivering the highest quality, 360-degree video experience available today and pioneering dynamic new ways to share life’s precious moments in real time with friends and family anytime, anywhere.”
With a few easy steps once a smartphone is connected to a 4G LTE network and the user is signed into the 360fly mobile application, a user can authenticate his/her Facebook login to seamlessly connect to their Facebook account. Users then select the live button, name the session and choose an audience before going live (data charges may apply). The live-streaming function also offers an automatic and adjustable bit rate for upload encoding (up to 10 MBits per second). 360fly was also recently mentioned as being part of Facebook’s Live 360 Ready Program.
