I’m a beginner to Theta cameras, looking to select the right model (from S, SC, SC2, and V) for a specific task. I’d like to live-stream the camera feed to a local computer (probably a Raspberry Pi, or a small Ubuntu machine), which then processes the frames in Python (e.g. with OpenCV) and then sends those onward to a remote VR headset (like a smartphone in Google cardboard) which then sees what the camera sees. I already have most of the second half figured out; the first half involves setting up a camera I can live-stream and process in Linux.
I’ve read through many related topics on this forum, including the streaming guide and I’m unclear about which Theta to select. It seems that Theta V has the best live-streaming but is based on UVC 1.5 which the Linux kernel does not implement. Theta S has UVC 1.0 and so should be accessible to OpenCV as a standard USB webcam (if I’m not mistaken) but it’s unclear if it has live-streaming.
Can someone recommend the right pipeline for me? Thanks very much!
