Finnish telecoms equipment maker Nokia unveiled Wednesday its new virtual-reality camera for professional filmmakers and content creators.
"We're thrilled to introduce OZO to the content creation world, and to define a completely new category of virtual reality capture and playback solutions," Ramzi Haidamus, president of Nokia Technologies, said in a statement.
The ball-shaped gadget captures 3D footage for content creation for devices such as the increasinly popular headsets that let users immerse themselves in virtual games.
Nokia was the world's top mobile phone maker between 1998 and 2011 but, after failing to respond to the rapid rise of smartphones, the Finnish company sold its handset unit to Microsoft in 2014.
Since then the company has concentrated on its network infrastructure business.
