GoPro? Nah, it's GoBandit. The company has launched what they're calling the world's first "action cam with integration Wi-Fi" at CES 2012 this week, and while we've seen Wi-Fi make its way into a lot of new stuff recently, this one definitely takes the cake. The first action cam in the world to integrate wireless connectivity, gobandit LIVE allows adrenaline junkies to view, edit and share their videos with their smartphone instantly. With gobandit LIVE, athletes can now share their experiences on the fly.
Like the first gobandit action cam, gobandit LIVE allows users to integrate performance data, such as speed, altitude and position to name a few, into their videos. Journalists and sports-minded people can explore these and other technical features of the innovative HD cam at CES. The brand new gobandit LIVE action cam produces more than just video clips – it records experiences as authentic and detailed as possible, and allows people to share them instantly on the gobandit community or on social networks such as Facebook and YouTube.
gobandit LIVE's integrated GPS and acceleration sensors record with maximum accuracy the speed and altitude where a stunt was performed. A 170-degree wide-angle lens provides the perfect focus to record the experience. Full HD-resolution ensures the highest quality playback of experiences. For sharp, slow-motion action playback the frame rate can be enhanced up to 60 frames per second. The gobandit LIVE 3-axis gyro sensor accurately records the camera's position in space and, leveraging the integrated wireless connection, athletes can even incorporate their heartbeat into the video* to capture every pulse-spiking second. Complementing LIVE is gobandit studio, the innovative app that allows users to individualize their videos by adding skins and performance data. Athletes can relive their performance and share it on social networks.
"Our new high-definition gobandit LIVE and studio has all of the technology needed to record, edit and share adrenalin-pumping experiences with your friends and online communities," said Aleks Ristic, CEO and co-founder, gobandit GmbH. "It's the perfect video solution for any thrill-packed adventure. Gobandit excels where others fall short. Every shot counts and with the gobandit LIVE and studio, you are armed and ready to share the action!"
Also launched today is gobandit RACE. Like gobandit LIVE, RACE records GPS information in 170-degree, full HD-quality videos. Providing all of the capabilities or LIVE without wireless connectivity, gobandit RACE is for adventures who like to disconnect.
Both Gobandit LIVE and RACE weigh less than one-third-of-a-pound (0.31 pounds), measure 4.1 by 2.4 by 1.3-inches (H x W x D) in size,( 105 x 62 x 34 mm) and are the perfect companion for extreme sports. With a wide variety of different mounting solutions available, gobandit cams can join almost every adventure. The gobandit LIVE and RACE are priced at US $419.00 and $319.00, respectively, and will be available for purchase from authorized gobandit retailers throughout the United States and Canada beginning March 1, 2012.
