In a Google I/O session covering its newly revealed VR platform, Daydream, Google announced that it is working on an IMAX version of its 360-degree Jump camera array. In working with IMAX, Google will build a cinema-quality version of the Jump array that can be used for making professional VR films.

Initially revealed at last year's Google I/O, the Jump camera rig is made up of 16 cameras in a circular array for capturing and synchronizing footage in 360 degrees. Currently, the rig is made for GoPro cameras (seen above), but it will be interesting to see what kind of tweaks Google and IMAX make for their upcoming cinema-quality version.
