Title: HEAD-MOUNTED AUDIOVISUAL CAPTURE DEVICE
Abstract:
Described is a head-mounted device for capturing audiovisual content in a three-dimensional space. The device is a head-worn item having at least one camera lens and at least two microphone elements. The camera lenses are positioned on the head-worn item to capture at least 180 degrees of visual content away from the head-mounted device. The microphone elements capture 360 degrees of audio content about the head-mounted device. A first microphone element is positioned proximate to a left ear of a user when wearing the head-mounted device and a second microphone element is positioned proximate to a right ear of the user when wearing the head-mounted device. Additional lenses and microphone elements may be added to the head-worn item. An electronic processor electrically receives the visual content and the audio content received from the camera lenses and the microphone elements and thereafter stores, processes or transmits the visual and audio content.
