  • Design wins for the MAX:

    "HEVC, EAC projection and ERS stabilization (ERS - Electronic Rolling Shutter) done on camera all give Max a huge bitrate advantage over our competition, and we are confident you will be very pleased with the quality of the resulting video thanks to this complete new package."

  • One feature of the MAX that is fun - 270-degree panoramas from one click, handheld, with auto stabilization and horizon-leveling. These are almost 4 GB's, so I cannot attach an original one without downsizing it (4320 x 1440 resolution). I attach a re-compressed version.

  • Panos indoors in low light (re-compressed to fit). This may be the best feature, as the 5.6K 360 videos are nice, but still soft when viewed in sections (as expected). Colors are great, dynamic range is improved, nothing better at this price point and below.
