LAS VEGAS, NEVADA (PRWEB) January 10, 2012
At the 2012 International CES show today, Kogeto announces the iCONIC optical technology from Dot™, the world’s best-selling and smallest panoramic video camera accessory, will be compatible with Android smartphones. Starting in the first half of 2012, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus is the first Android phone to debut with more models to be announced throughout the quarter.
This new way for Android users to capture the world around them and share panoramic video will retail for $79, the same price as the iPhone model. Pre-orders will begin in late January on Kogeto.com and further retail locations will be announced shortly after.
“At Kogeto, we are dedicated to putting mobile, high-quality panoramic video in the hands of the 550,000 Android phones that are activated each day,” said Jeff Glasse, CEO of Kogeto. “More importantly, this is a monumental step for panoramic video, as it is now be readily available to nearly all phone carriers, manufacturers and consumers.”
iCONIC’s compact and durable design makes it the ideal video camera accessory for capturing panoramic Dotspots™, in addition to sharing with family and friends on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. The lens is a simple optical attachment and does not require batteries or external power. iCONIC also features the least obtrusive design, adding no significant weight to the phone.
iCONIC works with the Galaxy’s video capabilities to capture a full 360-degrees and seamlessly integrate the video into an easy-to-share format without stitching frames together. Kogeto’s proprietary iCONIC™ catadioptric optical system is fully AR-coated for the best color fidelity in mobile panoramic video and offers the highest resolution on the market today.
Similar to Dot for the iPhone 4/4S, iCONIC for Android users will download a free application called Looker™ that processes and de-warps the panoramic images captured directly on the phone.
iCONIC and Dot are designed and manufactured in the U.S.
Kogeto is changing the way people create and share video on the web. Kogeto is the maker of Dot™, the world’s smallest 360-degree panoramic video accessory for the iPhone 4/4S. In 2012, Kogeto will bring the unique iCONIC technology that makes Dot possible to Android smartphones. iCONIC works with existing cell phone cameras to capture immersive, fully navigable, panoramic Dotspots™ that users can share with friends on social networks like Facebook and Twitter, or shared on Kogeto’s video platform at kogeto.com.
