LAS VEGAS – European sports electronics company Geonaute recently used International CES to introduce its spin on the emerging trend of 360-degree image capture.
In fact, the company’s Geonaute 360-degree action camera was a winner of a CES 2014 Best of Innovations Award in the digital imaging category.
The action video camera uses three wide-angle lenses, each with an 8-megapixel sensor that captures a 360-degree spherical image, creating 2K-resolution videos and 4K-resoloution photos, the company said.
Specifically designed for the sports enthusiasts, the aluminum-based Geonaute 360 is water-resistant, shock-proof and fits in a user’s palm. It is capable of more than two hours of continuous recording.
The camera uses the company’s low-energy ANT+ wireless technology, allowing remote control operation and syncing with other ANT+ devices, such as GPS or heart-rate monitors.
The Geonaute 360 pack is available now for preorder on the company’s website for a $499 suggested retail and includes a flat pad, curved pad, universal adaptor, MicroUSB-Y cable, lithium-ion battery, protective skin and a lanyard cord.
The cameras are expected to ship “later in 2014,” the company said.
The Geonaute company is comprised of a team of 85 sports/technology enthusiasts, dedicated to producing high-quality, easy-to-use products.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
