LAS VEGAS – Jan. 4, 2015 – GIROPTIC has been named a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree for its 360Ccam – the world’s first 360 palm-sized camera that allows users to record videos, take still photos and stream video in real-time over Wi-Fi from “Up, Down and All Around.” Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories.

The lightweight (6.3oz.) yet rugged 360cam is the most versatile camera on the market. Featuring three, 185 degree fish-eye lenses with optical assembly and synchronized to simultaneously capture and stitch images in real time inside the camera, the 360Cam is able to produce breath-taking views from all around in true, high-definition. http://bit.ly/1nnR6GB

The small but mighty camera is able to capture photos with a resolution of 4K (4096 x 2048), and videos with a resolution of 2K (2048 x 1024).  The 360Cam can store a micro SD card up to 128GB to ensure users will be able to capture all of life’s adventures – on land or by sea. Additional distinguishing features include three microphones and integrated Wi-Fi to post photos or stream videos in real-time for automatic geotagging, letting users’ followers know where the action is taking place.

Additionally, the waterproof, IPX8 rated 360Cam can be paired with other GIROPTIC accessories to enhance its usability. Accessories include an underwater lens cup to capture distortion-free images under water, light bulb adapter converting it into a surveillance smart home tool, and Ethernet video streaming base to stream unique video footage in real-time.

The 360cam will be on display during CES 2015 at the Sands, booth #72070.
