Frequently Asked Questions.
When will Orah 4i ship?
If your shipping address is in the US you can expect your Orah 4i very soon now. We have started delivering Orah 4i in November and expect to fill pre-orders within the US very quickly now. Many customers have already received their shipping notification and more and more will follow during the coming days and weeks as we ramp up production. As soon as your pre-ordered camera leaves the warehouse you will receive an email notification with your tracking number.
Delivery to countries outside the US will start as soon as we get legal clearance for your respective country. Most likely this will be from the beginning of 2017 onwards. Please understand that we cannot give exact dates for each country at this point but will keep you updated on the process regularly.
We know we are a few months behind schedule which is why we want to remind you that we’ve allowed cancellation of pre-orders with a full refund at any time till the product ships.
Does Orah 4i have a battery?
The current package doesn’t include a battery. However, you can still use a 19.5 V battery pack to power it. We intend to offer some pre-qualified battery packs that work well with our unit as an accessory
Why is Orah 4i split in 2 parts?
High-quality processing in cinematic 4K resolution requires A LOT of computing power. We decided to separate the acquisition part (the camera) from the processing part (the stitching box) to keep the camera as small as possible – this way you can place the camera at the heart of the action, while hiding the stitching box up to 330ft away (100 meters). Thus, it can be placed in the backstage area.
What platforms are compatible with Orah 4i?
Orah 4i generates an equirectangular video output, which is the format used by Facebook, Youtube, Vrideo, Littlstar, Bitmovin, and others. It broadcasts the video using RTMP, which is the standard protocol used by Youtube, Wowza, Akamai, Bitmovin, Ustream, Livestream, etc.
In other words, Orah 4i is compatible with any platform that supports VR video, whether it is broadcasting live or recording videos for future playback.
