Social media giant, Facebook is investing more resources into 360-degree video, a format that is gaining popularity on its platform as more users gain access to 360 cameras.
The company’s last count revealed that 250,000 360-video clips had been uploaded to the social network since September.
Today, Facebook announced that it is testing a newly built image stabilization technology specifically designed to make 360 videos smoother.
Facebook claims that its tech is unique in that it combines standard 2D algorithms with 3D techniques, and a new “deformed-rotation” motion model, to create a hybrid stabilization architecture.
The company plans to eventually roll the system out on its social network, and the Oculus VR platform.
What this fundamentally means for general users is that your 360 videos that capture motion will soon be optimized to eliminate any shaky footage that detracts from the format’s immersive experience.
