The name of the models x6 and x24 tells about the number of built-in cameras (Surround 360 was 17), and the new technology will allow removing is and to move inside the video, as well as to consider the material from different sides and angles. In addition, the modules support six parties to move the viewer, so he can move through the captured video to the four directions and up and down. The space will adapt to user movement and constantly changing depending on its location.
