Liquid Image Unveils Ego LS Action Cam, 4G Module

LAS VEGAS – Liquid Image unveiled at International CES the Ego LS action cam that will have an optional Verizon 4G LTE module.

With a 4G LTE module, the Ego LS action camera will be capable of transmitting live WQVGA video at 30 fps as well as still images.

Recorded video can also be uploaded via Verizon 4G LTE to social networks.

The company also unveiled a pair of Hydra-series scuba masks with integrated waterproof action cams and a pair of OPS-series goggle cameras — one optimized for skiing and one for swimming.

The Liquid Image Ego LS model 800 is slated to ship in June at a $199 suggested retail. The 4G LTE module will also be available in June for $199.

Liquid Image will supply several mounts and accessories, including a waterproof housing.

Key features in the Liquid Image Ego LS include HD video resolution of 1080/30p and 720/60p, still image resolution of up to 8 megapixels, motion detection, interval image capture, built-in Wi-Fi, built-in Bluetooth, MicroSDXC compatibility, and built-in lithium-ion battery with six-hour HD video record time.

As an alternative to 4G LTE, the Ego LS also offers Wi-Fi connectivity to view or transmit files via a connected smartphone or tablet, or to control the camera remotely.

Also included is built-in Bluetooth connectivity for the packaged remote control and various Bluetooth peripherals, such as microphones and headsets.

Meanwhile, Liquid Image also revealed a pair of Hydra scuba masks with integrated wearable video cameras — one with 720p HD video capability and one supporting FullHD video.

The Liquid Image Hydra 720p mask (shipping in May at a $119 suggested retail) features a 136-degree (full field of view) wide-angle lens, 5-megapixel still camera, 1,280 by 720/30p HD video capture, and 640 by 480/60p SD video for smoother motion shots. It has a depth rating of 130 feet, up to 32GB of MicroSDHC storage, and four rechargeable AAA battery operation.

The Hydra-series 1080p camera mask (May, $349) ups the resolution to 12-megapixel stills and 1,920 by 1080/60p FullHD video plus an option for 1,280 by 720/120p video.

The OPS Snow Goggle Camera model 350 (available this month at $199) offers a frameless style lens for the eyes, and records 3-megapixel stills, 1920-by-1080/30p FullHD video or 1280-by-720/60p video for smoother motion videos from the slopes. Controls for on/off/video mode are placed on the upper right side of the goggle along the strap connection point in the back and another button toward the front for recording still images.

An LED indicator light inside the goggle signals the recording action to the user with a single blink for recording a still image and continuous on/off blink for recording video.

Up 32GB of MicroSDHC storage is possible, and the camera is powered by a rechargeable battery and MiniUSB.

The Liquid Image OPS Swim Goggle Camera (May, $119) for free diving and swimming features a wide-angle lens, 3-megapixel camera, and 1,920 by 1,080/30p and 1,280 by 720/60p HD video capture.
