The LG 360 CAM, the world’s first compact 360-degree camera, can now provide Spatial Audio through a software update. According to LG, the LG 360 CAM is the world’s first compact 360-degree camera to support both YouTube Spatial Audio and 360-degree video in a single camera solution.
Equipped with three microphones, the LG 360 CAM is one of very few 360-degree cameras providing a horizontal surround sound experience. With the addition of our software update, the sound experience goes even one step further to immersive 3D for 360-degree and virtual reality (VR) videos.
With Spatial Audio, the sound changes depending upon which direction the viewer of the video turns, just as if he or she were standing in the centre of the video. The sounds will seem to be coming from real physical objects in the viewer’s surroundings.
Watch a 360-degree video taken with Spatial Audio by the LG 360 CAM. Videos can be viewed on YouTube (Immersive Videos with Spatial Audio) and Facebook 360 as well as posted without the need for any special editing tools. For best results, use a good pair of headphones rather than stereo speakers.
LG G5 owners using 360 VR must upgrade to Android 7.0 Nougat to experience 360-degree videos with Spatial Audio. For V20 owners, an upcoming software update will provide Spatial Audio functionality.
