HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., Nov. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Everyone takes 'selfies' but now you can take 'epic' 'selfies' as Audiovox Electronics Corporation (AEC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corp. (NASDAQ: VOXX), announces the launch of ShutterBall, a remote shutter for smartphone cameras.

Selfies are more popular than ever; "on Instagram, there are more than 36 million photos tagged #selfie, 98 million tagged #me and countless others without the identifying hashtags," according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.  Taking a great 'selfie' is not always as easy as it looks. Smartphone camera buttons are not always in the most ideal spot and often taking a good 'selfie' turns you into a contortionist.  Not anymore!

ShutterBall is a Bluetooth powered remote shutter control that pairs with your smartphone via an app and allows you to take perfect 'selfies', group shots and videos without having to endure the contortions sometimes necessary to trigger the shutter on your smartphone. Never take an awkward 'selfie' or be left out of a group photo again!

"Today's electronics focus on convenience," said Tom Malone, president of Audiovox Electronics Corp. "and ShutterBall does just that…letting the consumer take the convenience of the camera feature on a smartphone to the next level.  With ShutterBall you will take clean, crisp, blurry free photos.  In addition, because you trigger the shutter remotely, you can include yourself in the bigger groupie shots. ShutterBall is easy to use and at $24.99, will make a great stocking stuffer this holiday season."

Compatible with both iPhone and Samsung smartphone models, ShutterBall triggers your smartphone for still shots and video. It also provides better control for blur-free group shots at a distance of up to 60 feet. The device is coin cell battery operated and provides up to 5-year battery life with Bluetooth Low Energy. ShutterBall even includes a bonus stand/easel to prop up your smartphone.

ShutterBall is currently available in green, pink, blue and black at Toys "R" Us, Amazon.com and HSN.com for an MSRP of $24.99. It can also be purchased online at store.audiovox.com.  There will be more retailer announcements in the coming weeks!
