iON Worldwide Unveils 'iON The Game' HD Video Camera for Sports, Motion Analysis

November 27, 2012


iON Worldwide has launched a high-definition (HD) video camera ‘iON The Game’ designed for capturing and analyzing video of motion sports such as golf, basketball, baseball and tennis. The new camera dons a 2.4-inch LCD color screen which makes it easy to shoot footage of golf putts or tennis swings, and then play back the video instantly for analysis.

The camera is available online for $299.99.

The camera captures video at 1080p with playback possible at 60, as well as 30 frames per second, allowing for more detailed, slow-motion analysis. The camera also takes still photos and time-lapse sequences, and its built-in Wi-Fi communicates with iON's iOS and Android apps to allow users to stream video, change settings and upload their best game footage to Facebook (News - Alert) and YouTube via their smartphones.

The camera is waterproof at depths to 10 feet without any additional casing, making it useable to analyze swim strokes, as well as for capturing sports in virtually any weather conditions.

Giovanni Tomaselli, CEO at iON Worldwide, said, "iON The Game brings the SHOOT/SHARE technology of our Air Pro line to an even broader pool of athletes, coaches and consumers. Whether you're an amateur tennis player seeking to analyze your serve, a high school coach dedicated to helping improve your students' performance on the basketball court, or a mom determined to capture and share your daughter's next soccer goal, this product is designed with you in mind. iON The Game is the next step toward iON's larger goal to offer a comprehensive line of easy-to-use, quality sports action cameras."

The unique, angled mount-stand enables the iON The Game camera to be easily clamped onto nets, goal posts and fences or even perched on football field uprights. The optionally available Helmet & Bike Kit and Board Kit provide even more mounting options.

iON Worldwide was recently chosen as the official camera partner of the 2012 Dew Tour. iON Worldwide, a global consumer electronics company, completes the Dew Tour's roster of blue-chip partners entitling the iON Mountain Championships, held Dec 13-16 in Breckenridge, CO.

iON's groundbreaking entrance into action sports features its Air Pro HD camera with Wi-Fi PODZ, the first action camera that lets users shoot their most exciting moments and then immediately share them with friends through the iON smartphone and tablet app. The app also acts as a powerful remote control -- allowing users to change settings and start and stop video recording on the go.

In addition to high-definition video resolution, it has built-in Wi-Fi connectivity, allowing users to view the action as it happens as a live stream and replay or immediately upload footage to Facebook, YouTube (News - Alert) or e-mail.
