Collaborators Launch Compact, Long-Run Wearable Video Camera

OmniVision Technologies, in collaboration with OPKIX, introduce the OPKIX One, a wearable camera that integrates seamlessly with smartphones. The camera allows anyone to instantly capture point-of-view (POV) 1080p high definition (HD) video without removing the paired smartphone from their pocket.

 

The OPKIX One system includes two cameras, allowing users to capture two simultaneous perspectives, and an egg-shaped case, which charges and immediately offloads video to a paired smartphone for storage and editing. Both cameras contain an OV798 video processor and an OV2732 image sensor from OmniVision, which enable high-resolution video capture in an ultra-compact package.

The OV798’s integrated image signal processor supports high-performance video recording at up to 1080p resolution. The processor’s low power consumption also enables up to 15 minutes of continuous video recording on a single battery charge. The OV2732 sensor, built on OmniVision’s PureCel technology, has a 1920 x 1080 active array with multiple programmable controls and automatic image control functions. Both the OV798 and the OV2732 have wide operating temperature ranges.
