The REVL Arc is a 4K sensible motion digital camera with a constructed-in gimbal
A part of the Y Combinator Winter 2016 class, REVL simply launched a sensible motion digital camera that solves the 2 worst issues about motion cams….shaky footage and a cumbersome modifying course of.
Developed by ex-NASA, Sikorsky, and HP engineers, the REVL Arc has a constructed-in motorized gimbal to maintain the digital camera’s view degree with the horizon.
The 4K digital camera can also be waterproof as much as 10 ft, packs WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, and has a battery that provides it ninety minutes of 4K recording time.
Arc additionally packs constructed-in sensors to trace altitude, velocity, and rotation, that are used to detect exercise and assist make sensible suggestions about what recorded footage is greatest. For instance, the modifying algorithm can use captured telemetry knowledge from an hour-lengthy ski run and pull out and have the clips the place the skier was doing a bounce or rail, leaving boring footage within the background.
This sensible modifying will probably be carried out by way of REVL’s app, which is concentrated on offering fast shoot-edit-share performance. The modifying platform may even pay homage to Snapchat’s filters by letting customers overlay telemetry knowledge like altitude and velocity on prime of recorded video.
Along with YC backers embrace Invoice Tai, James Lindenbaum, and Google Maps co-founder Lars Rasmussen, who’ve contributed a complete of $2M in seed funding.
The digital camera is launching on Indiegogo in the present day, and can ship December 2016.
