iON Demonstrates Turnkey Camera and Software Solution for Sports Motion Analysis at PGA Show
Combo allows teaching pros, coaches, students and others interested in improving their game to capture video of golf swings, wirelessly upload it, mark it up and/or add voiceover using the PowerChalk service and then share with others
London 22nd January, 2014 – iON , the company that bought Shoot/Share™ Wi-Fi connectivity to point-of-view (POV) cameras, today demonstrated a first-of-its-kind, complete video camera and web-based software solution for sports motion analysis. The solution brings together the iON The Game™ wireless high-definition (HD) video camera—specially designed for capturing and analysing video of motion sports such as golf, basketball, baseball and tennis—with the PowerChalk™ online service.
The combo allows users to capture video, wirelessly upload it to PowerChalk, draw a freehand sketch on or add voiceover to it, and then share the video with others. It is a powerful tool for teaching pros, students, parents and anyone interested in analysing and improving their performance.
The iON The Game wireless HD sports video camera touts a 2.4-inch LCD colour screen, making it easy to shoot footage of golf putts or tennis swings, and then play back the video instantly. 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 footage to Facebook and YouTube via their smartphones.
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 optional Helmet & Bike Kit and Board Kit provide even more mounting options. The camera is waterproof to depths of 10 feet without any additional casing, making it useable to analyse swim strokes, as well as for capturing sports in virtually any weather conditions.
