Apple announced a lot of software developments yesterday during the WWDC 2024, keynote which was introduced by Apple CEO Tim Cook. Apple developers (and fans) were shown briefly a new immersive cine camera in development from Blackmagic Design – the Blackmagic URSA Cine Immersive camera while Apple alluded to the idea of 3D content available through Vision OS for the Vision Pro augmented reality headset.

Since the conference, renowned cinema camera manufacturer Blackmagic Design has officially announced not just the world’s first commercial camera system designed to capture Apple Immersive Video, but an entire end-to-end workflow including updates to DaVinci Resolve which will introduce a new way to consume cinema.
