Despite its potential and conceptual appeal, Panoramic/360 degree cameras growth has been shaky. Grandeye suffered a strange restructuring last year. Immervision may be changing its go to market strategy as well. Mobotix's offering (Q22/Q24) seems to be growing but it's more focused on an all Mobotix solution.
Up until 18 months ago, Sentry360 was an OEM of Grandeye. Since then, Sentry360 reports that they have developed their own software and panoramic product line, offering 1.3, 3 and 5MP versions. For more information see a product Overview deck and a recent recorded webinar. The cameras are currently supported by JDS, Video Insight and VSG with planned support from Milestone/OnSSI before the end of the year. The MSRP on the 1.3MP is $700 USD while the 3MP is $1500 USD.
Sentry360 is a fairly small company with less than 10 employees and no VC funding.
A central element is image quality which has been much debated in panoramic cameras since the days of IPIX. I have not tested Sentry360 or Mobotix's panoramic cameras so I cannot comment on this key element.
