PIXIO: Your Personal Auto-Follow Camera for INDOOR & OUTDOOR activities
PIXIO is the world first auto-follow camera to film both INDOOR and OUTDOOR. He tracks the watch, films and zooms in & out automatically. Now you can film more often, independently, without the assistance of a cameraman. Film sport, rehearsals, actors, pastors, conferences, events...!
INDOOR & OUTDOOR use
PIXIO can track a watch with the same performance inside or outside
Take advantage of unrivalled INDOOR & OUTDOOR range from 3 to 330ft (1m-100m). No line of sight required!
Enjoy video opportunities with unlimited creativity!
With a compatible camera (refer to the complete list), PIXIO adjusts the zoom automatically, in real time, in order to keep the same frame size around the subject being filmed.
How does it work? At any moment with the watch at a distance of more than 5 meters from the camera, you can go behind the PIXIO and press + and - to set the frame you like. Nothing else. This frame will be kept automatically when the watch distance increases or decreases. The setting is saved into memory and you don't have to do it again the next time you use your PIXIO.
PIXIO is designed for many applications. From fast-paced sports to conferences: high responsiveness, accuracy, softness of movements.
PAN: Rotations 360° endless. 120°/s max (45mph at 30ft; 72km/h at 10m). Manual TILT rotations +/- 10°.
USE YOUR OWN STANDARD POWERFUL CAMERA
Any standard camera can be used for both indoors and outdoors. This is very important for you to have the latest features and the very best quality from renowned camera brands. With one of the compatible cameras you add the auto-zoom and the remote control of the 'record' from the watch and from a smartphone.
The camera is connected to the robot with a custom cable. PIXIO is provided with a "Multi" cable for recent SONY cameras. Other cables are available in the online store.
PIXIO can support cameras up to 2KG (4,40lbs)
With your PIXIO, you can film up to 16 people, each one wearing a watch. Two possibilities: the last one who presses its button is filmed, or someone is using the app. on its smartphone or tablet to chose who is filmed.
You can also use up to 16 robots to film from different angles. Just add "Extra Robots" to your standard PIXIO (see the online store to find the Extra Robot). Whatever the number of watches, a maximum of 3 different watches can be filmed at the same time by the 16 robots; It means that several robots will sometime have to film the same watch.
LIGHT & EASY TO USE
Wear the watch, put the 3 micro-beacons around the playground, switch-on, and it's done! No calibration time. Just enjoy the video!

LIVE STREAMING AND LIVE COACHING WITH PIXIO
All recent cameras can stream the video with their WiFi connection to any internet device, or their HDMI plug to a converter box and a computer, or a streamer box with 4G capability. And because standard streaming services have a random delay of 10 to 60 seconds, we also offer a complete pack for Live Coaching, with about 1 second of delay.
Any camera up to about 2.5kg can be used on PIXIO because it has a standard 1/4’ screw.
But it’s much better to use one of the supported models for the automatic zoom and the remote control of the record from the watch, or from the free smartphone/tablet app. The list of supported models is updated regularly here, they are mainly Sony and Canon cameras.
Note that Panasonic, JVC, and some other camcorders don’t have any plug to control their zoom and their record. They can be used on PIXIO, but without the auto-zoom and without the remote control of the record.
DSLRs don’t have any plug to control their zoom, they are not supported by PIXIO but can be mounted on it.
