Bluefish444 will demonstrate a complete VR workflow at the Bluefish444 NAB 2016 booth SL9021, featuring live 360 SDI video camera recordings from five IOindustries Flare 2KSDI cameras in a custom VR rig from Inter Video.

SDI video cameras will be integrated into the custom camera rig to capture and create a 360 degree video of the NAB Show floor. Live multi-channel SDI capture with Bluefish444 Epoch | 4K Neutron Turbo and an all new version of Bluefish444's ingeSTore software. Captured media will be accessible from Studio Network Solutions EVO shared storage network and can be made available to compatible content creation tools while media is still being recorded through the new ingeSTore feature "Edit-While-Record".

"Bluefish444 is proud to join with experts of the industry to provide an end to end VR 360 degree video production and post production workflow, live on the NAB 2016 show floor," said Tom Lithgow Bluefish444 Product Manager "VR tools are making their way into the content creation applications that Bluefish444 users rely on for editing, VFX, colour and finishing all enhanced by Bluefish444 SDI and HDMI video cards."

Content creation tools supporting VR workflows will access the 360 degree video files directly from shared storage with Nuke stitching together the individual video files into the equirectangular file format, a common video format for 360 degree video content. The equirectangular video files are then edited together using Adobe Premiere Pro CC with new VR preview capabilities. Assimilate SCRATCH will be used to colour correct and finish with SDI / HDMI preview provided by Bluefish444 Epoch | 4K Neutron video cards. The final results will be available to view through the Assimilate SCRATCH VR suite and an Oculus Rift VR headset.
