The VIO POV.HD is the ultimate helmet camera, combining high end components with smart design and rugged features. The VIO POV.HD is the first helmet camera to shoot native 1080p HD video thanks to its Texas Instruments hardware and 6 element glass lens.

The new POV.HD follows the award-winning form-factor of its predecessor, but with all-new internal components and functionality. The POV.HD features new in-field flexibility capabilities and records up to 5 hours of crisp HD video. Thanks to the exceptionally small and robust nature of the POV.HD camera head, options for capturing creative and beautiful video angles are limitless. Clint Slack, Marketing Director at V.I.O., says: “The POV.HD not only delivers advanced HD video, but also provides a host of unique recording and exposure options designed for the discriminating video enthusiast.

The POV.HD comes with a laundry list of proprietary functionality driven by user feedback. The recording unit features a 2-inch LCD screen to view footage in the field, edit video and make exposure control adjustments. A simple set of controls allows the user to easily “tag” the best footage in the field, so final editing is finished quickly back in the studio. The recorder, run by Texas Instruments new Da Vinci DM368 Video Processor, supports a real-time video pipeline that enhances image quality and produces crystal clear 1080p H.264 video. The 2-oz wearable camera head captures 142 degree FOV, at 1080p 30fps—the widest point-of-view camera angle available on the market. The camera head also features video capture at 720p 60fps, a high-quality 6-element glass lens and a native 1080p CMOS sensor designed specifically to produce optimal-quality, Full HD video.

In addition to utilizing the best video components available on the market, the POV.HD excels in the single most important test for point-of-view cameras: durability and ruggedness. The POV.HD is IP67 certified and is commonly used in a wide variety of extreme environments due to the unit's dust, water and shockproof ratings and ability to handle extreme temperatures. Todd Jones, Founder and Producer for the action-sports film company Teton Gravity Research, said: Thanks to the exceptionally small size, bombproof nature and production-grade video quality of V.I.O.& cameras, we've been able to capture unique and beautiful shots of our athletes in extreme situations that otherwise would have been unattainable.

The complete VIO POV.HD system is water, dust and shock proof and it is easy to use thanks to its colour LCD screen and remote control.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from watch out for the HD I bought this to use on a motorcycle helmet. The audio playback on the unit failed after the second trip from the box. Laptop plays audio but unit now won't. It is a nusiance with the cable- when stopping and removing helmet to go somewhere, like pay for fuel. It chews through 4 new batteries in 2 hours and recorded only 10 minutes of video.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great camera, so easy to use!! This camera was purchased to use in a Subaru rally car. The camera is really easy to set up and the wireless remote makes it a breeze to use. It would be nice to see some extra mounts to be included in the package as it is at the higher end of the price range. Also only disappointment with the camera is that if you run it off the optional 12v cradle it looses all the settings everytime u disconnect it or switch vehicle off. Great camera to use!!!
