for automatic zoom in & out + REC control from the watch and the smartphone app.

Check out the complete list of supported cameras here

Note that consumer camera models from Panasonic, JVC, and some other brands don't have any plug to control the zoom and the record remotely.

The camera is connected to PIXIO with a cable. The one provided with PIXIO is a "Multi" model for recent SONY cameras. Other cables are available in the online store.

 

THE PIXIO WATCH

WIRELESS CHARGE - WATER RESISTANT - 1.9Oz 50gr OF TECHNOLOGY - 3 HOURS OF AUTONOMY

Can be worn as a watch, an armband, at the belt or in a pocket, and even attached to a microphone.

Several watches can be used: the last one to press REC is filmed.

Or if you are a coach you can use the smartphone app. to control who is filmed and when. So easy to film with Pixio...!

 

MULTI USERS

With your PIXIO, you can film up to 16 people, each one wearing a watch. Two possibilities: the last one who presses its button is filmed, or someone is using the app. on its smartphone or tablet to chose who is filmed.

You can also use up to 16 robots to film from different angles. Just add "Extra Robots" to your standard PIXIO (see the online store to find the Extra Robot). Whatever the number of watches, a maximum of 3 different watches can be filmed at the same time by the 16 robots; It means that several robots will sometime have to film the same watch.

 

 

THE PIXIO ROBOT

Can support a 5lbs 2.5kg camera, or a DSLR, an action cam.

With a (non-provided) special interface it can also support a smartphone or tablet.

360° endless PAN rotation. 120°/s max. 4h autonomy.

SMOOTHER - MORE REACTIVE - MORE ACCURATE.

 

 

 

THE AUTOMATIC ZOOM

With a compatible camera (the list is above), PIXIO can adjust the zoom automatically, in real time, in order to keep the same frame size around the subject being filmed. How does it work? At any moment with the watch at a distance of more than 5 meters from the camera, you can go behind the PIXIO and press + and - to set the frame you like. Nothing else. This frame will be kept automatically when the watch distance increases or decreases. The setting is saved into memory and you don't have to do it again the next time you use your PIXIO.

SMARTPHONE/TABLET REMOTE CONTROL APP.

THE 3 MICRO-BEACONS

They are the keys that makes PIXIO the robot you love: accuracy, responsiveness, and unrivalled range of 330ft (100 meters) both indoors and outdoors.

Just put them around your playground and switch them ON.

 

NOTE:  For nautical sports (kite-surfing, windsurfing, surfing, wake-boarding…) Pixio will not be adapted due to insufficient range. Therefore we recommend to use the Classic or E-FullMotion models.

THE 3 MICRO-BEACONs

Put them more or less around your playground and just switch on!

They are the key that makes PIXIO much better than any other technology

Accuracy, responsiveness, range indoor of 100m (330ft), no need for direct line of sight

They are used by the watch to measure its position 10 times per second by a triangulation technique

Typical Pixio Playground

Here is a typical configuration for PIXIO. Create your own local GPS with the 3 micro-beacons around your playground: horse riding arena, conference room, video studio, gymnasium... Switch on, and it's done! No need to wait. No need to calibrate. You can move around and be filmed automatically. No need to stay right inside the beacons.

Micro-BEACONS are delivered with a micro-tripod for easy set-up anywhere. Just switch it on, and you can film during hours with the smallest, most reactive, most accurate, and easier auto-follow camera working indoor and outdoor.

WHAT TRIPOD DO YOU NEED
You need a tripod with a 3/8" screw. It is bigger than the usual 1/4" screw generally used for cameras. Do not use a tripod with a head, because of poor stability (except with high cost tripods!) and because it has a 1/4" screw. If you want to use such a tripod with a 1/4" screw, some small adaptors 1/4 - 3/8 exist.
MOTOR NOISE
Very silent motor. You can use a buetooth microphone (not provided) or any equivalent accessory to capture any distant voice.
TRACKS 1 to 16 WATCHES
And 1 to 16 cameras can track the watches. But no more than 3 watches can be tracked at the same time by the robots. It means that if you have more than 3 robots, some of them will track the same watch.

What kind of tripod do I need ?
You need a tripod with a 3/8" screw. It is bigger than the usual 1/4" screw generally used for cameras. Do not use a tripod with a head, because of poor stability (except very high cost tripods!) and because it has a 1/4" screw.
Is it possible to plug PIXIO and the micro-beacons to a wall socket ? Do they work or do they only recharge ?
PIXIO and the micro-beacons can be plugged in a wall socket, and they work. It is a solution for filming all day long, and also to install PIXIO at a fixed place.
Does PIXIO have an automatic tilt ?
PIXIO has a manual tilt you can set before filming. For most activity on a level ground, you don't need the automatic tilt. As an example, refer to this video taken with PIXIO from the stadium stands, above the arena: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLNN-ya_lIw
Is it possible to live stream the video taken with PIXIO ?
Yes, the HDMI plug of the camera can be used to have the video in real time, and many providers can live stream this video. Recent cameras also have a live stream option through your smartphone.
What is the connection needed on camera to have the automatic zoom and the REC control from the watch ?
The camera plug is called "Multi" or "LANC" or "A/V-R" depending on the model. The models listed on the website are compatible with Pixio, the others may not be compatible. Some non-listed models are compatible due to their similarities with compatible models, do not hesitate to ask us and we will check.
I have a DSLR; Is it compaible with PIXIO ?
Any DSLR can be mounted on Pixio. But DSLRs do not have a motorized zoom. The zoom will remain fixed. Be carefull that DSLRs generally do not have autofocus in video mode, so the video may be blurry.
Where do I get the mechanical interface to allow smartphone and tablet to be used for filming ?
You need a common adaptor between Pixio and the smartphone or tablet. It is generally called "smartphone/tablet tripod adaptor".It costs a few dollars and can be found easily.
With a tablet or smartphone, do I have the automatic zoom and the REC control from the watch ?
No. A tablet or smartphone does not have any plug for zoom and record remote control.
Is it possible to use the HDMI port of the camera for video recording or streaming, or is it disturbed by the zoom and REC control from PIXIO ?
It is possible to use the HDMI port while PIXIO is controlling the zoom and the REC through the specific plug (multi, LANC, or A/V-R). HDMI plug is not used by PIXIO.
Is it necessary to measure everything manually in detail to set-up the beacons at precise locations ?
No. It is like the GPS: you don't need to know the position of each satellites, it is automatic. Just put the 3 micro-beacons somewhere around your playground, switch them on, and you are done.
Is it an issue if I go outside the area set-up by the beacons ?
No. You can go outside the area set up by the beacons and still be framed. And of course if you are going too far the camera will loose you, and it will find you again when you come back.
