Wearable camera-maker Liquid Image is releasing a small mountable camera capable of streaming video live over LTE with the addition of a detachable module. The device is targeted toward athletes who want to stream their exploits in real time and organizations that want to broadcast their events. It can also be used for home security.
The Ego LS model 800 debuted at CES today and will go on sale in June for $199.99, the company says. The LTE module will retail for an additional $199.99.
The first mountable camera that can stream over LTE
It is the first mountable, wearable camera that can stream over LTE, and it can capture 1080p video at up to 30 fps or 60 fps in "high action mode," which makes for an exciting live-stream as long as you can find a mountain biking trail with data coverage. It also has an 8-megapixel camera mode for stills.
The camera is also equipped with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and low frequency RF. Liquid Image is claiming a battery life of up to six hours over Wi-Fi, and between 90 minutes and two hours when streaming live over LTE.
