Dallas, TX (PRWEB) February 6, 2010
Tachyon™, Inc.- With all the hype of the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics just around the corner , sports enthusiasts are rediscovering their love of winter sports. So what’s the best part about skiing & snowboarding? Is it the rush of flying down the mountain? Is it savoring those moments as you carve up your favorite run on a beautiful day? Or is it bragging to your buddies about how you landed a Rodeo Flip? You don’t have to leave those memories on the mountain anymore. Tachyon, Inc. recently released two new products that are perfect for capturing point-of-view videos this winter season. The 2010 Tachyon XC and the Tachyon XC Micro helmet cameras will help users capture their winter-sport memories on film so they can hold onto them forever.
Even in cold weather conditions, the 2010 Tachyon XC allows users to film an unprecedented 10 hours* of continuous, hands-free video, without changing the batteries or the SD card. Although the Tachyon’s helmet cam will not protect its users’ hands from frostbite, they won’t have to worry about removing their gloves to use the camera…it comes with an easy to use, one-button remote control!**
Both the 2010 Tachyon XC and the Tachyon XC Micro are extremely versatile and tough cameras that are housed in waterproof cases, completely protected from light drizzles and horrific spills down double-black diamonds. Utilizing their new, high-dynamic-light-sensors, Tachyon’s latest helmet cams can now record crystal clear footage in the extreme conditions that were once only privy to much more expensive cameras; users can now film the in bright-white conditions on a sunny peak and in the deafening darkness while night-skiing. The camera’s light sensor also adjusts almost instantaneously to the quickly changing light and dark conditions fluctuations caused by trees, the mountain, clouds, and abominable snowmen.
The wide-angle lens hits that “sweet spot” of human vision, allowing the viewers to see nearly everything that the user does without any sort of warping caused by some lenses that are “too wide”. Tachyon has also recently released the world’s first 3D helmet camera system and 3D editing software for consumers. Users can record anaglyph, 3D videos using two of the 2010 Tachyon XC helmet cams and Tachyon’s very own 3D mounting system.
The cameras are plug-and-play with Mac® & PC, so playing, editing, and uploading videos is extremely easy; no software or downloads are needed. Share the memories by uploading them to websites like YouTube®.
“In the world of action sports, reputation is everything” said Jeff Francis, Operational Director for Tachyon, Inc. “Your Mom may believe you when you tell her you landed a perfect double corked 1080, your friends will probably call you out. Once your videos are posted on the web for the entire world to watch, what else can anyone say?”
So whether it's hitting the groomies, dropping into the half-pipe, or recording a kid’s first ski-trip, with a Tachyon XC helmet cam, you can be sure to keep those truly magical moments from the mountains with you in more than just memory.
