Hi All,

"[Ricoh makes] 360 content creation, very simple. We integrate now with Matterport or we're working closely with Matterport content creators, but with Matterport itself as well. Obviously to simplify the workflow for creativity, virtual tours for creating content," said Ricoh Head of Global Marketing Thijs Ekelschot in a WGAN-TV interview at the 2019 Google Street View Summit.

"Big difference between these two cameras is when we introduced Theta V where the very good high performing camera, but these are only at 14 million pixels for stitch files. Whereas with Theta Z1 we increased this to 23 million pixels, one inch sensor, shooting in raw, which is the feature that many professionals were asking about."

How have you liked shooting with the Ricoh Theta Z1?

Transcript of WGAN-TV Interview (Above)

Hi, my name Thijs Ekelschot, so I work for Ricoh and as you might know, Ricoh is a manufacturer of this one, the Ricoh Theta and this one, Ricoh Theta V, Ricoh Theta Z1 that we introduced earlier this year.

Obviously we're really pleased with these cameras. We make 360 content creation, very simple. We integrate now with Matterport or we're working closely with Matterport content creators, but with Matterport itself as well. Obviously to simplify the workflow for creativity, virtual tours for creating content.

Why are we here? Why are we at a Google Street View conference? Obviously it's our ambition to make sure that there's as many people out there as possible to create good 360 content.

Big difference between these two cameras is when we introduced Theta V where the very good high performing camera, but these are only at 14 million pixels for stitch files. Whereas with Theta Z1 we increased this to 23 million pixels, one inch sensor, shooting in raw, which is the feature that many professionals were asking about.

So we started to introduce lots of more features for the professionals, and hopefully this is a camera to your liking. So I would encourage everybody to start using it, discover it, work with it in Matterport, Google Street View, any platform, because it's just a fantastic camera.

Thank you very much.
