HMD Global, the home of Nokia phones, just announced the Nokia 8, a high performance, beautifully crafted smartphone, designed with content creators in mind. At the heart of this new smartphone is the ability to capture and replay immersive experiences for those who love to create and share special memories.
At Nokia, we believe that a core ingredient to making virtual reality feel like life is spatial 360° audio. Built into our OZO camera and captured through its eight microphones, our proprietary OZO Audio technology is our newest standalone product that can now be licensed by any camera or smartphone maker. OZO Audio is an advanced spatial audio technology with 3D recording and playback capabilities. Designed specifically for smartphone and consumer camera manufacturers, OZO Audio enables you to capture spatial sound and then play it back as if you were there.
We are proud to introduce the next interview in our new series, “OZO Spotlight On.” Today we’re shining the OZO spotlight on Miikka Niemi, project director, and Joonas Mattila, director of photography, from 100 Moods From Finland. In this interview with Niemi and Mattila, we discuss the formation and workflow of their amazing project.
