Element of the Y Combinator Wintertime 2016 class, REVL just introduced a smart motion digicam that solves the two worst factors about motion cams….shaky footage and a cumbersome modifying system.
Created by ex-NASA, Sikorsky, and HP engineers, the REVL Arc has a designed-in motorized gimbal to preserve the camera’s look at stage with the horizon.
The 4K digicam is also watertight up to 10 ft, packs WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, and has a battery that offers it ninety minutes of 4K recording time.
Arc also packs designed-in sensors to observe altitude, pace, and rotation, which are utilized to detect exercise and assistance make wise tips about what recorded footage is finest. For instance, the modifying algorithm can use captured telemetry knowledge from an hour-extended ski operate and pull out and attribute the clips wherever the skier was performing a leap or rail, leaving uninteresting footage in the background.
This wise modifying will be accomplished by way of REVL’s application, which is concentrated on furnishing brief shoot-edit-share features. The modifying system will also fork out homage to Snapchat’s filters by letting customers overlay telemetry knowledge like altitude and speed on top of recorded video.
In addition to YC backers contain Monthly bill Tai, James Lindenbaum, and Google Maps co-founder Lars Rasmussen, who have contributed a full of $2M in seed funding.
The digicam is launching on Indiegogo today, and will ship December 2016.
