Raspbian OS Image for Video Livestreaming Experiments

On our campaign page, you can see a group of stereoscopic video livestreaming experiments, including with YouTube, Oculus Go, and first-person-view drones. Behind the scenes, we did a lot of other livestream experiments with translation video to Mac, Windows, Android phones, and RTMP servers. Read the full update.

StereoPi Slim Edition

Perfect for DIY ninjas and those wanting to embed StereoPi in a tight space. This board is the same as the standard edition, but without all the bulky connectors - the Ethernet RJ45 jack, GPIO header, and dual USB Type-A connector have not been populated. To use this board, you will need your own Raspberry Pi Compute Module, cameras, camera ribbon cables, and power cable.


StereoPi Standard Edition

The world of stereoscopic video awaits! This board is the ultimate interface between two cameras and a Raspberry Pi Compute Module. It comes with all the bells and whistles, including Ethernet, dual USB ports, GPIO header, microSD slot, HDMI output, and more. To use this board, you will need your own Raspberry Pi Compute Module, cameras, camera ribbon cables, and power cable.


StereoPi Starter Kit

This kit has everything you need to get started right away. The kit includes one StereoPi Standard Edition board, two V1 cameras (w/ ~20 cm ribbon cables), one Raspberry Pi Compute Module 3 Lite, and everything in the StereoPi Accessories Kit (two short ribbon cables, one USB power cable, two power cables, one V1/V2 dual-camera mounting plate, and one wide-angle dual-camera mounting plate). We've also included a microSD card pre-imaged with Raspbian and all the stereoscopic video and image demos you see on this project page.


StereoPi Deluxe Kit

This kit includes everything in the StereoPi Starter Kit and adds two wide-angle (160°) cameras (w/ ~20 cm ribbon cables). With this kit, you'll be able to run all of the demos shown on this project page and start experimenting on your own. You will reign supreme over your stereoscopic domain.


StereoPi Accessories Kit

This bundle will help you mount and connect your two cameras, and supply power to the whole setup. Included are two short (5 cm) ribbon cables to connect your cameras to your StereoPi (most cameras come with cumbersome 10-20 cm cables), one USB power cable for powering your setup from a standard USB Type-A power source, two power cables with bare leads for using in screw terminals or soldering to a non-USB power source, a laser-cut acrylic plate for mounting two V1/V2 cameras, and a laser-cut acrylic plate for mounting two wide-angle cameras. Both camera mounting plates are compatible with the freely available plans for our 3D-printed enclosure. StereoPi and cameras not included.



We are a small team of geeks who have been making remote-controlled things with livestreaming video since 2010. We've done everything from boats and planes, to robots, copters, and VR helmets. If we can't find the right tools for our projects, we build them ourselves.
