i-mmersive’s VEYE 360° camera provides instant live streaming to any device, with no stitching or post production necessary
Incredible 4K quality 360° video
The VEYE camera is built of premium components including advanced 1/1.8 Sony sensors, high-grade aluminum, and our own top spec encoding software. Two 220° fish eye lenses create a fully spherical 360° field of view, while built in microphones add to the immersion. A built-in server connection allows instant live streaming, and the camera can be powered by a direct power cable, USB connection with your computer, or even a USB C cable plugged into your smartphone. Both the VEYE and Base Stand are equipped with standard tripod mounts.
Expert connectors, expanded capabilites
The Base stand takes the VEYE’s impressive capabilities, and kicks them up a notch. The combination of a more powerful WiFi antenna and an integrated battery good for four hours of shooting time means you can take your show anywhere, cable free. We’re even working on adding 4G LTE connectivity for ultimate mobility. A full spectrum of professional ports lets you add high quality microphones and other peripherals to the equation.
A full ecosystem for creating, sharing, and consuming LIVE 360° content
Our web portal and mobile app mean you can control your VEYE, create your stream, and consume content from practically any web-connected device. Cloud storage, monetization, and curated event recommendations add up to a full-fledged, creator focused ecosystem.
The perfect solution for VR on the GO

The team at i-mmersive loves going to live concerts. Berlin is full of live music, and there are many shows we are not able to attend. We also have a deep love of VR and 360° video. We started to think about live streaming a concert directly to someone’s home via VR. And why just concerts? Why not all types of events and creative content?
This led us to the i-mmersive system; a full solution for monetized, live streaming, 360° video content. From day one our aim has been to deliver an easy to use, complete system for any consumer or creator. Load up the app, select and event, and enjoy, or plug in your camera, open the web portal on your computer, and start streaming. It’s that simple.
We have built an incredible piece of technology with unique capabilities. We could have sold our patents and ideas to major companies, but we know that Virtual Reality will play a major role in people’s lives over the next 20 years. We want to ensure that our vision for free, quick and affordable live VR video will be carried out. So we turn to you, to help us keep control of our company before we bring to you our envisioned products and let you start creating amazing things with it. Support us, and we won’t let you down!
