Cameras are everywhere these days, including (in some cases) on the human body. As the demand for accurate reporting and accountability increases, so does the need for light and wearable cameras. That’s where Vievu comes in. The company makes cameras specifically designed to be worn by people or mounted onto cars/equipment.
Scott met with Steve Lovell from Vievu. Steve demonstrated one of his company’s flagship products; a portable, lightweight video cam that can be mounted nearly anywhere. Vievu cameras can be connected to either smartphones (via the Vievu app), laptops or IP networks. These special cameras have been on the market since June of last yearand their price range begins at $349.00. Vievu cameras can capture both audio and video in resolutions ranging from 360 to 1080p. Cameras come with 16gb of internal storage and they can record for about 2.5 hours or stream for about 90 minutes before needing a recharge.
