New iON Adventure With GPS and Non-Stop Recording Demonstrated During CE Week in NYC
NEW YORK (ShowStoppers, CE Week 2013, Table 112), June 26, 2013 – iON America, the consumer electronics company known for bringing Shoot/Share™ Wi-Fi connectivity to point-of-view (POV) cameras, is demonstrating the new iON Adventure™ – a camera reinventing the POV camera for long-distance and long-timespan activities – during CE Week 2013. The camera will be available online and at retail outlets worldwide starting in July.
The iON Adventure features GPS functionality, a unique loop recording mode and dual SD-card storage that ensures there is ample space available for adventurers to document and share their biggest moments, be it heli-skiing in Alaska or reeling in a 200-pound Marlin.
iON is demonstrating iON Adventure in conjunction with partner Kinomap, which offers the first online video/map-sharing platform. Kinomap apps enable users to view a pre-recorded, geo-located outdoor route, measure their own performance and view progress on an accompanying map.

# loop recording mode allowing for continuous, non-stop recording, eliminating the hassle of manually restarting recording and swapping out memory cards
# the ability to save the ideal video you just recorded from the loop as a five-minute block, making sure those special moments are put away safely.
# a vibration sensor that automatically starts and stops recording when it senses motion.
a side-mounted lens body design that enables the camera to be comfortably strapped across a user’s chest
# an ultra-sensitive image sensor capable of capturing full 1080p HD video even in difficult lighting conditions
# Full compatibility with iON PODZ™ accessory system allowing users to transform smartphones or tablets into a powerful remote controls and share their moments via Wi-Fi on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, email and the iON Cloud™ service.
