LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--ACTIVEON makes it easier to capture life’s remarkable moments with the new SOLAR X action camera that offers 4K performance and a unique solar-charging solution. The ACTIVEON SOLAR X joins the lineup of ACTIVEON cameras on display this week at the company’s CES 2016 display (Central Plaza 107).
“ACTIVEON cameras are made to capture incredible life experiences and our new SOLAR X captures those memories in 4K quality. We’ve designed the SOLAR X to be like nothing else in the market today, with a slender profile, a lens system protected by smooth, toughened glass, and a unique recharging system that uses the sun itself to recharge its battery. So even if you’re in the middle of nowhere, you can keep recording your adventures,” said Frank Donato, Executive Vice President of ACTIVEON. “We expect the action camera market to nearly double in size in the next two years, to nearly 20 million units annually. That’s why ACTIVEON is continuing to innovate and bring to market new ideas that are groundbreaking and affordable.”
Not only is the ACTIVEON SOLAR X able to capture extraordinary photographs and videos, but it also connects with ACTIVEON’s X Station to avoid missing special moments. A sophisticated solar panel case, the X Station absorbs and stores energy from the sun to charge the SOLAR X. Utilizing the Burst Speed Charging technology, the X Station is able to charge the Solar X camera up to 80% in 30 minutes and to 100% in 60 minutes. The ACTIVEON Solar X provides a total battery life of six hours. This includes two hours of battery life from the built-in battery and an additional four hours of battery life with a fully charged X Station.
ACTIVEON SOLAR X, CX GOLD, and CX action cameras include an iOS and Android smartphone app to easily control the camera’s functions, monitor live video, and share content directly to social media. When connected to Wi-Fi the SOLAR X and CX Gold can automatically upload content to the ACTIVEON Cloud.
The SOLAR X includes a two-inch touchscreen, built-in 1100mAh rechargeable battery, built-in Wi-Fi and digital image stabilization. The SOLAR X action camera captures 4K video at 2160p with a 16 megapixel CMOS video sensor. The SOLAR X camera also includes a seven-element F/2.4 high precision bright glass lens that provides four different levels of field of view. The SOLAR X includes a graphical menu-driven interface allows a user to toggle between video and photo modes. As a digital camera, the SOLAR X can shoot 16MP images with a burst rate of six frames per second. The SOLAR X also comes equipped with a micro HDMI output.
The SOLAR X is also compatible with nearly 40 additional accessories available to enhance experiences with ACTIVEON cameras, including eight different mounts; seven grips, selfie sticks, and straps; diving glasses; and a Wi-Fi remote.
The SOLAR X is expected to reach retail stories in March 2016.
