Pivot Head

One of the best parts of visiting NAB is the hunt for new and exciting products. This year there was a must see new-comer to the show called Pivot Head. This video recording eyewear company has figured out a way to imbed a POV camera that shoots 60 minutes of 1080p@30fps video and stores up to 8GB of memory onboard. The sleek form factor is no larger than a traditional pair of glasses and offers many different lensing options (Glacier Blue, Purple Haze, Smoke Gray, Transitions and Graduated Bronze Mirror) in three different colors (black, white and brown). Two onboard buttons allow the operator to stop/start recording audio/video and taking 8MP Sony CMOS still. Up to 16-shot rapid burst and a time laps burst still photo mode can be activated. For longer run time, the resolution can also be set to 720p@30fps. The auto focusing camera has a 75 degree field of view and no “fish eye” image distortion. With the use of a standard USB cable, the footage is easily downloaded to your computer and includes an adaptor for a smartphone. A separate software tool included with your purchase allows you many different preset video and camera modes including Active, Sports, Spectator, Social and more. Pivot Head will start shipping this summer with two models; Aurora and Durango. With an MSRP price of $349 a pair, you have to check it out yourself.
