New VIO POV HD Helmet Camera Launched

Adventure-Spec has just announced the availability of a brand new helmet camera that has been described as the most flexible, rugged and easy to use point-of-view HD video system existent. Dubbed V.I.O. POV.HD, the system is ideal for both on and off road disciplines that place huge stress on camera equipment.

“The POV.HD not only delivers advanced HD video, but also provides a host of unique recording and exposure options designed for the discriminating video enthusiast,” stated Clint Slack, Marketing Director at V.I.O.

Features include new in-field flexibility capabilities and recording time of up to 5 hours of crisp HD video. According to its makers, options for capturing creative and stunning on board video angles are limitless.

The recording unit features a 2-inch LCD screen to view footage in the field, edit video and make exposure control adjustments. Additionally a simple set of controls allows the user to easily “tag” the best footage in the field, so final editing is finished much more quickly later.

The ultra lightweight wearable camera head (less than 60 grams) captures a 142-degree field of view, at 1080p 30fps — the widest point-of-view camera angle available on the market. The camera head also features video capture at 720p 60fps, a high-quality 6-element glass lens and a native 1080p CMOS sensor designed specifically to produce optimal-quality, Full HD video.

The unit can be fitted directly to crash helmets via the Star Mount with a choice of adhesive or magnetic mountings. Alternatively there is a Goggle Mount system also supplied.

Priced at £499.96 this camera is IP67 certified, which means it has a rating of 6 in protection against solids (dust tight) and a rating of 7 in protection against liquids (tested in water at depths of up to 1m), and is commonly used in a wide variety of extreme environments due to these dust, water and shockproof ratings and ability to handle extreme temperatures.
