Garmin's VIRB 360 and VIRB Ultra 30 will be used on each boat in the Volvo Ocean Race 2017-2018

Garmin will supply its action and 360°cameras to the seven teams competing in the Volvo Ocean Race 2017-2018.

The company has been selected as an official supplier for the race and its VIRB 360 and VIRB Ultra 30 will be used on each boat to capture high-quality video that can be easily edited.

“Our VIRB action cameras are rugged and ready for adventure, just like the sailors taking part in this race and we’re confident race fans watching the footage at home will get to experience the sport they love like never before,” said David Dunn, director of marine sales and marketing at Garmin.

Performance metrics
The VIRB Ultra 30 captures 4K/30fps video with GPS G-MetrixTM data overlays that show performance metrics such as how far, how high and how fast the user went.

It also features voice control so users can tell the camera to start, stop and 'remember that'.

For a more immersive experience, the VIRB 360 captures fully spherical 360° video in up to 5.7K/30fps resolution with 360° audio.

It includes built-in sensors for augmented reality G-Metrix data overlays.

HyperFrame director mode gives the user the editing power to easily reframe content after filming.

Spherical stabilisation enables smooth video regardless of camera movement and videos and photos are automatically stitched in VIRB edit.
