The makers of the Jaunt One camera have expanded their rental program. Abel Cine in New York is the latest company to offer the camera for rent. The camera can also be rented from Radiant Images in Los Angeles.
The Jaunt One 24G model camera features 24 global shutter sensors and the ability to couple with 360° ambisonic audio recording. Customers will also have access to AbelCine’s training, workshops and educational tools for shooting in VR.
The nationwide availability of the Jaunt One camera, paired with access to the company’s end-to-end VR pipeline, provides filmmakers, creators and artists with the hardware and software solutions for shooting, producing and distributing immersive cinematic VR experiences.
“As we continue to open the Jaunt pipeline to the expanding community of VR creators, AbelCine is a perfect partner to not only get the Jaunt ONE camera in the hands of filmmakers, but also to educate them on the opportunities in VR,” said Koji Gardiner, vice president of hardware engineering at Jaunt. “Whether they’re a frequent experimenter of new mediums or a proven filmmaker dabbling in VR for the first time, we want to equip creators of all backgrounds with everything needed to bring their stories to life.”
“At AbelCine, we are always on the lookout for cutting-edge storytelling tools, and this describes the Jaunt One perfectly,” said Mike Nichols, AbelCine’s business development manager. “Our clients rely on us for assistance in adopting new technologies and providing outstanding technical support on these projects. We are excited to do just this, and help our clients discover what’s possible with the Jaunt One.”
