World’s First Waterproof, GPS-Enabled, High-Definition Video Camera Allows Action Thrill Seekers to Shoot, Skin and Share Their Adrenaline-Packed Adventures Like Never Before
Munich, Germany – gobandit, a power player and innovative manufacturer of high definition action video devices, announced today that its cutting-edge, GPS-enabled camera, the GPSHD Action Cam is available for purchase. Originally introduced in February at the 2010 International Sports Business Network (ispo), the compact and feature-rich GPSHD action camera uses advanced 3-dimensional GPS technology and unique software algorithms to record every element of every adventure. Providing the ultimate in recording quality and flexibility, innovative mounting accessories, powerful editing-software with revolutionary performance data overlays, integration of trails on Google maps, and quick-connect upload options for the gobandit community and popular social media sites, the rugged, waterproof, gobandit GPSHD is ready to capture the most extreme, heart-pumping adventures.
The gobandit Action Cam records stunning high-definition video while simultaneously capturing critical GPS data, allowing users to skin videos and show their unique trails on Google maps as well as present performance in ways previously only seen in professional auto racing and video games. Whether launching off a snowy summit, biking insane terrain, PWC wake jumping at 50 knots, or diving out of an airplane, the GPSHD records elevation, location, route, speed and altitude, all time stamped for seamless synchronization with video using the included gobandit Studio software. Compatible with both PC and MAC computers1, gobandit Studio’s powerful video trimming functionality produces perfect clips by combining simple slice & dice footage arrangement with a collection of performance data skins that can be effortlessly overlaid to display the action details users want to share. The ultimate final product, gobandit Studio video clips provide a real-time visual representation of the adrenaline flowing through a user’s veins with each pulse-spiking second. Once complete, gobandit Studio users can upload videos to popular social media sites such as Facebook, YouTube, Vimeo and the gobandit community (gobandit.com/community), to name a few.
“Our new high-definition GPSHD action camera puts all of the technology needed to record the experience and performance of adventure sports in one compact, easy-to-use device,” said Aleks Ristic, CEO and co-founder, gobandit GmbH. “The perfect video solution for any thrill-packed escapade, our camera excels where others fall short, allowing users to easily shoot, skin and share adrenaline-rich moments like never before. Like any bandit knows, every shot counts, and with the gobandit GPSHD you’re armed and ready for action!”
Equipped with rotatable wide lens optics, the GPSHD provides high-definition, 720p (1280 x 720) 16:9 aspect ratio and 30 frame per second (FPS) video capture in MPEG4 format with the click of a button. An embedded low-power, 20-channel SiRFStarIII GPS receiver captures performance data and a high-powered, noise control microphone keeps the sound of rushing wind to a minimum while recording the soundtrack to all of the action. The gobandit GPSHD includes a 2GB SD memory card and support for higher-capacity cards, and can record hours of action packed video or capture HD photos at 2- or 5-second intervals. Capture settings, performance data, GPS signal strength and battery levels can all be accessed through the device’s status screen.
“Our gobandit GPSHD delivers the most complete visual experience on the market,” continued Ristic. “It is the new standard for recording action sports video and will forever alter the way we share others’ experiences!”
The gobandit GPSHD is housed in a compact, lightweight casing and features a 2GB SD card with optional SD card expansion; a removable 3.7V, 1200mA lithium-ion battery for up to 3hrs of recording at 720p; and a fixed-focus glass lens with 135-degree viewing angle. The front lens can be rotated 90-degrees clockwise or counterclockwise to align the optics of the GPSHD to always acquire the perfect picture. Waterproof to the IPx7 standard, the GPSHD weighs 0.3-pounds (145g) and measures 4.13-inches x 2.44-inches x 1.34-inches (105mm x 62mm x 34mm). gobandit accessories include goggle, helmet, flat surface, roll bar, handle bar, suction cup and universal mounts, wall and car charging kits, extra rechargeable batteries, a TV connectivity kit, and a soft and secure carrying case.
