Nokia Sept. 30 announced it’s giving owners of its Ozo 360-degree VR camera a free one-year license to Ozo live, the software solution that enables live broadcasting of VR video and audio using the camera.
Ozo Live is being made available to new and existing Ozo owners in the U.S., Canada, Europe, China, Macau, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan and South Korea. The license will cost $9,000 after the first year.
The software will be in use at the Austin City Limits Music Festival, running Sept. 30 to Oct. 2, with six Ozo cameras broadcasting live VR of performances by Mumford and Sons, Nathaniel Rateliff, City and Colour and Honne. The broadcast is available on the Samsung Gear VR.
