Today, Wolfcom introduced Venture, described as “the world’s most versatile, wearable 4-in-1 HD camera”. Featuring a rotatable camera head and clippable design, the camera can also act as a body cam as well as a livestreaming camera. The company has announced that it will release an Indiegogo campaign to fund product development, with limited rewards for those who back the product early.
With Venture and all of its accessories, the options for photo and video capturing (120-degree Wide Angle lens with no fisheye effect) and sharing are endless. Venture, which is made of aircraft-grade aluminum and lightweight at 2.2 ounces, can be combined with additional Point of View (POV) cameras (Eye Vision, Covert Pinhole Button, Night Vision and Headset), allowing the audience to have the same perspective of the user, which is key in recording either sensitive material or exciting “in-the-moment” activities such as motorcycle riding, mountain biking, snowboarding, etc. When one of the secondary POV cameras is connected to the Venture, the unit’s proprietary Critical Reconnect Technology™ prevents any missed footage if the 2nd camera’s connection to the Venture is lost – recording will continue, never missing a beat.
By using Venture’s intuitive mobile app, which also acts as a wireless remote control to record video and take photos, users can record and livestream video directly via a wi-fi connection to their smartphone. Live video is then streamed using the phone’s 4G/LTE connection (access to a 4G/LTE connection is necessary for live streaming). They can also grant friends private access to their stream. Additionally, Venture users can use the Remote Access feature from the app and program Venture as a Wireless Security camera to remotely monitor their home, property, kids or pets.
The Venture’s Indiegogo campaign is currently active, with an early bird price of $149 (50 percent off retail) and a super early bird price (60 percent off retail) for those who back the project early.
