V.I.O. Inc., the leading brand of wearable point-of-view video technology, introduces the new Wide-Angle POV.1 lens accessory. The new Wide-Angle POV.1 lens is currently available for purchase at www.vio-pov.com.
Proven to be the most advanced point-of-view wearable video camera on the market, the next generation Wide-Angle POV.1 lens gives users an incredible 110Â° field of view capturing area, nearly 30Â° more than the standard imaging head on the first generation POV.1. The new wide-angle POV.1 opens up the viewing screen dramatically; creating a wider, more stable point-of-view experience for users. This new lens is interchangeable on all POV.1 units.
â€œWe developed the new wide-angle lens in response to consumer feedback as well as new technology that gives us the ability to make these upgrades without losing image quality,â€ said David Ollila, Chief Product Developer at V.I.O. â€œIt boils down to giving users a choice in POV.1 imaging heads and providing a variety of high-end tools necessary to get the shot you want.â€
About the POV.1
The POV.1 is a fully integrated point-of-view (POV) video system that’s waterproof, dustproof, and shock-resistant. The system includes a mountable Wide-Angle camera head with a 110Â° field-of-view, built-in video recorder with LCD screen and microphone, wireless remote and software for managing point-of-view videos online.
The POV.1 overcomes numerous hardware concerns â€” durability, environmental exposure, hardware and software compatibility, power management, weight, size, and interface complexity. Now people can focus on the process of moving quickly and easily from video capture to video distribution, which is the main purpose of POV video. V.I.O. lets users create video for immediate access. The POV.1 is a rugged performer capable of withstanding rain, dunks in puddles, and dust storms while resisting the shock of riding in rough terrain. The POV.1 has been built for the harshest conditions of combat duty and to be simple to use out of the box.
Since its inception in 2000, V.I.O. has been the leading innovator in Point-of-View video technology. The V.I.O. point-of-view system is unique in that it’s designed specifically to capture adventure and tactical video. V.I.O.’s customers include professional and amateur athletes in a wide variety of sports such as mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, skydiving, motocross, snowmobiling, and auto racing.
