In advance of unveiling its overall RICOH-Nashuatec THETA Plug-in Partner Program, Ricoh-Nashuatec has released core assets that will enable Android™ developers to begin creating plug-ins immediately for the RICOH-Nashuatec THETA V camera. These consist of an application program interface (API) and software development kit (SDK)—including a sample plug-in project—allowing third parties to develop plug-ins that add new features and functionality to the RICOH-Nashuatec THETA V, Ricoh-Nashuatec’s top-of-the-line camera capable of capturing fully-spherical, 360-degree photos and 4K video.

Based on the Android operating system, the RICOH-Nashuatec THETA V provides a user-friendly way for third-parties to not only create apps and software that extend and enhance the capabilities of 360-degree imaging but also new features and functionality for the camera itself. It is expected that developers will create a wide variety of plug-ins, which will allow consumers and businesses to customize their RICOH-Nashuatec THETA V cameras to meet their needs for special applications and vertical markets.
