Designed for adventure and weighing in at only two ounces … announcing V.I.O’s point-of-view personal high definition camera system.

The V.I.O. point-of-view system is designed specifically to capture adventure and tactical video via first-person perspective. Customers include professional and amateur athletes in sports such as mountain biking, skiing, snowboarding, skydiving, motocross, snowmobiling and auto racing. The military, law enforcement, aviation and movie and television production industries also use V.I.O’s system. It’s flexible, rugged, easy, waterproof and battery-powered.

The POV.HD from V.I.O. has been described as a “matchbox-sized high definition point-of-view camera that is as easy to operate as an iPhone and weighs only two ounces.”  The device holds 5 hours of footage, and allows the user to edit their video in-the-field.

The company’s founder, David Olilla, began V.I.O. in 2000 as a solution to film his own mountain bike adventures in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. At the time, YouTube had yet to exist and sharing video over the Internet was still a nascent idea. David built the first lipstick video camera that would mount on a helmet and plug into a camcorder. Since then, V.I.O. has emerged as a leader in point-of-view video technology, developing complete video solutions for wearable video.

A variety of cameras and peripherals are listed on V.I.O.’s site . To vicariously participate in V.I.O. customer’s escapades, check out the user-generated video page here.
