The First Facebook 360 Degree Camera System in Africa is in Nigeria
Afrinolly developers in Nigeria have assembled the first Facebook Surround 360 Camera system in Africa. It is a production-ready, high-quality 3D-360 camera design with accompanying automated stitching technology that seamlessly marries the video from 17 cameras, reducing post-production effort and time. This will enhance the creation of virtual reality videos in Nollywood.
The Surround 360 features 14 cameras around its perimeter, with one fish-eye camera pointing up and two cameras pointing down.
Facebook stated that the rig will produce “truly spherical video”, and can put together video in 4K, 6K, and 8K for use in 3D applications.

The Augmented Reality (AR) 360-degree camera is not for sale according to Facebook.
• AR can let us see beyond the one-ten trillionth of the electromagnetic spectrum our eyes can register.
