1080p recorded in H.264 for up to five hours
VIO has introduced an update to its point-of-view video system, the POV.HD. The second-generation features the same overall form as its predecessor, but with several new components and additional functionality. Users can record up to five hours of H.264 video, including 1080p content at 30fps or 720p at 60fps, while the lens is capable of capturing a 142-degree field-of-view in the 1080p mode.
The system is said to be IP67 certified for resistance to dust, water, shock and extreme fluctuations in operating temperature. The camera head connects to a control module, which integrates an LCD to monitor the live feed or play recorded content. A remote control provides further control over recording and tagging.
The updated POV.HD is expected to ship on December 22, with pricing starting at $600.
