With unique perspectives and user-controlled points of interest, content generation becomes fun, interactive and seamless from capture to share. 360Fly provides consumers with a new way to document experiences that current industry standard cameras simply can't capture. Mount it, wear it, or simply place it and experience the future of video documentation.
"We have been looking for a partner that shares our vision and is a leader in the consumer electronics industry – VOXX is that partner," said Tim O'Neil, CEO of EyeSee360. "We believe this technology will change the way people expect to interact with video whether peer–to-peer or from broadcasters. This is an exciting step in the evolution of video"
Both cameras focus on capturing and sharing life's moments allowing recipients to enjoy a unique personal and meaningful experience. The "Fly's" field of view captures more than 4 times that of traditional cameras, with intuitive design and application interface; end users enjoy a seamlessly engaging experience. Ideal for on the go use, the 360Fly can fit in your pocket and be submerged in water up to 5 atmospheres.
360MicroFly is a smartphone lens attachment that puts a spin on traditional video offering users the ability to simultaneously record everything around them. 360MicroFly attaches to select smartphones to capture videos that are not only panoramic; they're also interactive, creating engaging scenes, allowing viewers to control what they want to view. …And they are driven by an easy to use social network software app.
User generated content can be shot, edited and shared using the 360Fly iOS and Android app. Users can also share to YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and other social media channels in standard video playback form.
