Wolfcom has announced the Venture as “the world’s most versatile, wearable and clippable 4-in-1 HD camera.” The action cam features a rotatable camera head and a multi-functional, clippable design that can be used as a body cam, a car cam, a flashlight cam and a livestream camera.
With 2.5 hours of battery life (up to 23 hours with optional battery pack), the camera can be used for live streaming to Facebook Live and YouTube Live. An Indiegogo campaign, which has a funding goal of $25,000, features limited Super Early Bird specials of $149 (60% off retail) and several other rewards for early backers.
With Venture and all of its accessories, the options for photo and video capturing and sharing are endless. Made of aircraft-grade aluminum and weighing t 2.2 ounces, it 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.
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. They can also grant friends private access to their stream.
“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. “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.”
