VENTURE can be Used as a Body Cam, Car Cam, Flashlight Cam and a Livestream Camera; Indiegogo Campaign Launches Today
Wolfcom just introduced their VENTURE 4-in-1 HD camera that pretty much do everything, and it seems designed for the mobile lifestyle. What is most interesting is the ability to connect multiple cameras. I’m not too sure how it works yet, in terms of switching during livestreams, if that’s even possible. But the Body Cam and Glasses Cam connection seems like the ideal situation for mobile journalist. Even without the live stream capability, to have HD cameras to work in sync without a ton of gear is a god send. That’s not even considering all of the other accessories and modes the Venture Cam offers. However, a lot of this can be done with Go Pros, and in terms of market share, much of it might already be spoken for. So the livestreaming seems to be the biggest draw; at least in my opinion. Hopefully we’ll get our hands on it soon and really break it down for you guys. You can back their campaign here check out the official press release from Wolfcom:
(Los Angeles, CA) – August 30, 2017 – WOLFCOM, an industry leader in Law Enforcement body cams, today introduced VENTURE, the world’s most versatile, wearable 4-in-1 HD camera. VENTURE features a rotatable camera head and a multi-functional, clippable design so it can be used as a body cam, a mountable car cam, a flashlight cam with four bright LEDs and a livestream camera. With 2.5 hours of battery life (up to 23 hours with optional battery pack), it’s perfect for live streaming to Facebook Live and YouTube Live from anywhere, anytime. An Indiegogo campaign (https://igg.me/at/venturecamera), which has a funding goal of $25,000 USD, features limited Super Early Bird specials of $149 USD (60% off retail) and several other rewards for early backers.
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.
“With Facebook and YouTube Live becoming very popular across all generations, we designed VENTURE to be the world’s first wearable Live Stream camera designed for everyone,” said Peter Austin Onruang, founder and president, WOLFCOM. “With VENTURE, anyone can be a Star. It’s like having your very own broadcasting studio wherever you go. Just clip the camera where you want, then capture and stream from your point of view – it’s that easy.”
