@take10, my understanding is that a major difference is that the RICOH R Development Kit has Real Time Orientation Correction and that the THETA S does not have this technology. Can you please confirm that the RICOH R Development Kit has RTOC and that it works? This is a major difference from the THETA S 360 live streaming.

extra information being added: Ricoh R Dev Kit has the ability to correct the video orientation during live streaming in real time. Ricoh calls this “Real Time Orientation Correction.”

Impressive that a small camera like this has enough umph to do that and is also able to deal with the heat issues around stitching and orientation.

Along with that the stitching quality for video is exceptional. No stitching gaps or blind spots.
