SHENZHEN, CHINA, 9th April – Kandao today introduced a new feature called ‘AI Slow-motion ’that can turn 30fps regular videos into max 300fps super slow motions, using the machine learning system. This feature will be first applied into the Obsidian and QooCam, Kandao’s industry-leading 360/VR cameras, making both upgraded into cameras that enable to create high-quality slow motion.

“Slow-motion offers possibilities to capture special moments in an epic way, but not all camera can do it. The high-fps camera is very expensive, as it requires large memories and is data-intensive, which is even more challenging for 360-degree cameras with multiple lenses.” Said Dan Chen, Kandao CEO.

Now, by applying the neural network to predict the extra intermediate frames, Kandao Obsidian and QooCam user can create a smooth, cinematic high-fps slow motion from the existing 360/VR video while maintaining the best quality.

Using the new feature, users can slow down the footage to up to 10x slow motion after taking them. For example, a 360-degree video originally captured at 8k 30fps can be transferred into a 240fps slow-motion in 8K, a 4k 60fps video can be exported at 4K 480fps, by selecting a factor of eight during the 360 stitching workflow in Kandao/QooCam Studio software.

Together with the ‘AI slow motion’, Kandao also released a range of software upgrades in Kandao Studio V3.0 for Obsidian VR camera, including the ultra-smooth video stabilization, stitching speed optimization and direct connection to export files from camera, etc.
