Circle Optics is a camera company which created the world's first, truly parallax-free 360-degree camera.\\Our Mission\Enabling immersive, real-time experiences through seamless 360° content capture.\ \Problem \The primary obstacle to the creation of 360° content is parallax, a type of distortion from using multiple cameras with overlapping fields of view. To date, this has been addressed through a post-production process known as stitching. On average, every minute of footage requires 5+ hours of a professional's time and upwards of $5,000 to fix. This cost and time-consumption prevents many companies from entering the market and restricts the amount and type of content produced. For this reason, eliminating parallax, and therefore stitching, presents a market opportunity in the billions. \\Solution \Circle Optics' unique solution utilizes novel technology, protected by our intellectual property, to align fields of view and eliminate the issue of parallax. Our technology fuses the images at the level of the lenses, rendering a perfect 360° image instantaneously. We have successfully been awarded patents in the United States and other countries. Our extremely broad IP protects the method of aligning fields of view between adjoining polygonal lenses and therefore applies to all geometries and future product lines. Furthermore, we recently filed a provisional patent application around the optomechanical system which enables our method. ----- Circle Optics has built the world's first 360-degree camera that allows creators to create high-definition seamless content instantaneously, with no need for stitching.
