How does 360° video work?: 360 Video Workflow

How does 360° video even work? How can a camera see in all directions at once? We use multiple cameras and stitch the images together into a sphere. There are single-camera solutions like the VSN Mobile or 360Fly, but they have significant blind spots. Spherical video is made manageable by editing software, digital transmission, or online streaming, by flattening it out into an “equirectangular projection,” just as a globe is flattened into a flat map of the Earth.
