Polecam VR at Reggae Sumfest 2017 in Montego Bay, Jamaica

Production company 360 Designs in conjunction with DownSound Entertainment created a 360° live stream using 5 cameras from the largest Reggae festival in the world – and the feature camera was mounted on a Polecam.  

The miniEye360 camera mounted on a Polecam was positioned at the very front of the stage allowing unprecedented 360° views for the live broadcast. Operator Greg Salman manned the rig single-handedly for the duration of the 10 hour over-night concerts, two nights in a row.

This was the first 360° live concert produced with multiple cameras like a traditional ‘2D’ broadcast.

“The Polecam was essential to getting us shots that felt like we were right on stage”, says Alx Klive producer, “I can’t imagine shooting a concert in a better way for 360°”.
