Renowned PC name Acer adds two players to its portfolio of LTE-connected 360 cameras.
Acer Holo360 Camera
The all-in-one Acer Holo360 allows users to live stream, capture, view, edit and share 360-degree photos and videos directly to social networks of their choice with integrated LTE connectivity, and also preview videos directly on the device. So say goodbye to pairing the camera with a smartphone or PC. Added to the features is the ability to stitch videos in real-time and a 3-inch touchscreen for easy navigation.
With the Panomorph optics – certified by ImmerVision – Acer Holo360 delivers consistent high-resolution images across the field of view without distortion, in 6.9K resolution for images and 4K for videos. A virtual reality headset allows users to relive those special moments captured. The Acer Holo360 is powered by the Qualcomm® Connected Camera Platform with a Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 625 mobile processor and operates on Android 7.1.
The Acer Holo360 connected camera will be available in North America in November at US$429 bundled with a water-resistant case, and in EMEA in Q4 with prices starting at €349. Exact specifications, prices, and availability will vary by region.
Acer Vision360 – A Cloud-Connected Driving Experience
Acer Vision360 encompasses two ultra-high quality cameras that work in harmony for 360-degree coverage so that every angle around the user’s car is completely recorded in crisp, 4K-quality video. For safety, it is mounted on the windshield, aligned with the driver’s eyes and also displays the vehicle’s current speed. This device is a must-have for every driver, especially when there is an incident on the road.
In the event of a collision:
– When in motion: The camera duo will trigger a recording that includes GPS coordinates of where the incident occurred. This is then saved in a secure area on the device’s internal storage, and also uploaded to the cloud for evidence preservation.
– When parked: Through the cloud-connected service, collisions with the car will activate the device to record a video clip, send a notification to the user’s smartphone, and upload the video to the cloud.
The Acer Vision360 also provides users with on-demand remote viewing and location-tracking from the device for peace-of-mind. For a bit of fun, users can record family outings or memorable road trips in action cam-quality, and relive the experience in the driver’s seat with a virtual reality headset.
Price and Availability of the Acer Vision360 will be made available at a later date.
