Google has unveiled an impressive new VR camera system at NAB Show in partnership with Yi Technology. The Yi Halo, which will retail for $17,000, works with Google's Jump system which automatically stitches together the footage obtained from the cameras.

Explains VR Scout, "The Yi Halo is a $16,999 17-camera rig capable of shooting stereoscopic video in 8K resolution at 30 frames per second, or 5.8K at 60 frames per second. Weighing in at less than 8 pounds with an internal battery that will give you 100 minutes of continues shooting, the Yi Halo was built to work natively with Jump. The Jump Assembler is Google’s high-end VR creation platform launched back in 2015 that lets you send footage to Google servers and wait as all the high-resolution imagery gets stitched together."
