Here we go again with more CES news. I was supposed to be getting one of these Looxice things for review but I don’t know what happened there, oh well, no big deal I guess. Anyway, they’ve just announced LooxcieLive which is live video streaming service that works with their Looxcie camera.
Looxcie, makers of the first wearable camcorder that lets users go back and capture moments then instantly share them, announced today that it has developed LooxcieLive™, a breakthrough live video streaming service that leverages the award-winning Looxcie social video camera. LooxcieLive™, planned for a first half 2011 release, allows users to capture live video from their point of view and stream it across mobile networks and Wi-Fi, to single or multiple viewers. Users can stream "see-what-I-see" personal video casts to share with others, creating an immersive, real-time experience for the viewers no matter where they are.
"Looxcie is innovating in first-person video streaming by creating an immersive environment for your viewers to see and experience what you see in real-time," said Looxcie CEO, Romulus Pereira. "LooxcieLive has created a way for people to easily share their life, whether they’re rock climbing, sailing, or touring the Pyramids in Egypt, with anyone they wish in a way that brings the viewers along for the ride."
In addition to LooxcieLive, Looxcie now offers two other smartphone apps: LooxcieCam, the new smartphone app that lets Looxcie users record high-quality 30 frames per second (fps) video in full 480p; and LooxcieMoments, the original Looxcie app for instantly creating and sharing clips. With the apps on a compatible smartphone, Looxcie is a mobile-connected device, allowing you to instantly share and stream life on the go. (Looxcie apps are compatible with Android 2.0 and higher phones as well as with iPhone iOS 4.2 and higher). With the addition of these new apps, Looxcie is an extensible platform for online video sharing.
In addition to the mobile apps, the new LooxcieDesktop helper application for the PC or Mac gives users the ability to easily transfer their entire raw video contents captured via LooxcieMoments, to their desktop computer for archiving or editing, and also provides automatic firmware updating of the device, making it easy to extend the device’s capabilities.
