360VR Camera Rig for interior tours & drone flight

SkyeCam Studios 3D 360VR VR video and photo tours better than matterport in Baltimore MarylandSkyeCam Studios has a professional-level, 360 degree 6 camera-array set-up for spherical 360 video and photo capture. Our spherical rig captures 8K video and 50 megapixel photo-spheres.

We can fly the camera set-up by drone or we can bring it on ground in the house for a realistic immersive tour.

We perform better than Matterport as they charge Cloud fees, Cloud rendering fees, and Cloud hosting fees, which we do not. In addition, Matterport does not allow for 360 video, which we do beautifully.

With the ability to fly a 360 camera VR rig, we enable the user to look at anything they want as the camera is flying- a truly stunning sight to see to see an aerial view of.

Additionally, we are registered with Google Street View and can submit interior and exteriors as we are a Google Street View Trusted business.

All of the content we make is fully immersive – you can use it with a head-mounted display such as the Oculus Rift, the HTC Vive, Google Daydream, the Samsung Gear VR or something as simple as Google Cardboard.

We also do the full rendering experience for properties that are not built yet and are looking to presell, develop or advertise with our team of architects, interior designers and game designers. This content can also be viewed on a multitude of applications and even allows the user to change flooring options, wall colors, pick-up items, turn-on-off lights, or anything else you can dream of.

Check out our article for more information on our VR rendering process. You can contact our Baltimore, Maryland office at 443-470-9001.

Aerial Cinematography: Our Experience in Drone TV Production

Aerial Cinematography Shot By Skycam Productions

Slowly and steadily drones are transcending helicopters, dollies, and other traditional models of simulated flight in the world of aerial cinematography. The economic feasibility, camera angle flexibility and rapid setup time of drones prove them to be the real winner in TV and film production.

The Plot

We recently had the honor of filming with Discovery Communications’ “American Hero’s Channel” (previously titled the Military Channel). The journey began in rural Gettysburg, Pennsylvania set in a backdrop of heavy forest in order to mimic the dense jungle environment present in Vietnam during the war. The plot of the shoot revolved around an American helicopter hero pilot who provided crucial medical aid and advanced recon that aided in the rescue of a group of American soldiers caught in the thick of battle.

New Technologies

With our drone and the addition of heavy duty fans we were able to emulate the idea of a moving helicopter hovering and delivering medical supplies to American soldiers. The producer will take the footage and use a blue screen to sell the viewer the idea that it is identical. This set would have been impossible to replicate using a real helicopter for reasons of safety due to the heavy foliage present and exponentially more expensive with a production level dolly or jib. Another important advantage the drone has in production is that most multi-rotor flying cameras do not require gas, instead rely on rechargeable batteries that are capable of being switched out within a moment’s time allowing multiple retakes with ease. Oftentimes the sound recorded on a set is important to maintain and a drone is considerably less noisy than a helicopter. Because the drone is wirelessly transmitting the video feed to LCD monitors on the ground, the producer is able to frame the desired shot precisely as he or she desires.

Our Future

We eagerly anticipate our next adventure in the world of aerial cinematography as the world of drones take effect.
