I think RICOH wants to clarify technical information for developers and has several processes to understand requirements:
- they check this forum and can read your post and requirements directly
- they have allocated time for a serious manager to discuss issues from the community with us
- there is also a direct communication mechanism for @jcasman and I to send information to other managers
I will include your latest information about the potential Wi-Fi interference in the agenda today.
At what resolution and framerate are you going to stream the THETA X? At 4K 30fps, you may run into heat issues. Please advise on how long you need to stream the video for.
The Z1 can stream 4K, 30fps indefinitely without heat issues, but it cannot use Ethernet.
If Ethernet is supported on the X, can you blow a fan on the THETA X while it is streaming? Or, does the setup (like on a robot) not allow a small 5V fan (like the type used to cool computer equipment) to blow onto the body of the THETA X?
The Z1 had several firmware upgrades that reduced the heat and increased the time it can stream.
