OPKIX Introduces Wearable Video Camera Powered by OmniVision Imaging Solutions

Posted Dec 04, 2018 by OmniVision Technologies

OmniVision in partnership with wearable smart cameras developer, OPKIX, has released a new camera, the OPKIX One, which integrates seamlessly with smartphones. The camera allows anyone to instantly capture point-of-view (POV) 1080p high definition (HD) video without removing the paired smartphone from their pocket.

The OPKIX One system includes two cameras, allowing users to capture two simultaneous perspectives, and an egg-shaped case, which charges and immediately offloads video to a paired smartphone for storage and editing. Both cameras contain an OV798 video processor and an OV2732 image sensor from OmniVision, which enable high-resolution video capture in an ultra-compact package.

According to OmniVision, the OV798 processor is ideal for the OPKIX One because of its ultra-low power consumption and fast boot-up time for immediate on-demand recording. Combining it with the compact OV2732 sensor is the best way to ensure high-quality video in all lighting environments. The OV798's integrated image signal processor supports high-performance video recording at up to 1080p resolution. The processor's low power consumption also enables up to 15 minutes of continuous video recording on a single battery charge. The OV2732 sensor, built on OmniVision's PureCel technology, has a 1920 x 1080 active array with multiple programmable controls and automatic image control functions. Both the sensors have wide operating temperature ranges, enabling outdoor operation year-round.

The OPKIX One is available now, with fashion-forward, wearable mounting options that include sunglasses, necklaces and rings. OPKIX's intuitive software enables easy editing and allows users to incorporate fun effects that enhance their captured videos.
