(sphere) is great for the professional film production studio that wants to shoot VR on their RED camera. But (sphere) is also great for the production studio that is more casually interested in VR, and eventually for the average consumer as well.

The (sphere) lens is unique — it's single lens construction means that it can go places standard VR setups typically don't go. Behind-the-scenes content, real-world situations, documentary style footage, and even just sitting at a dinner table are the types of things (sphere) excels at.

Sphere Optics Company, LLC


We envision a future where everyone is a producer of spherical video and VR content.

Designed and developed by ramID of Syracuse, NY, and subsequently spun out as a separate company, (sphere) is a suite of optical and technology products that will enable the general public, hobbyists, and professionals to share immersive, omnidirectional video experiences through the combined use of a proprietary toroidal lens, software, and existing visual optics systems, including smartphones, wearable cameras, action cameras, DSLRs, and periscopes. 

The marketing goal of the consumer (sphere) suite is to enable immersive video content to be captured via the (sphere) lens straight out of the box, and then for that content to be easily shareable.
