Pivothead Wearable Imaging Demos SMART Eyewear

Pivothead showed off its new Pivothead SMART (Simple Modular Application-Ready Technology), the next generation of Pivothead eyewear focused on broadcast, sports, and entertainment industries.

Like Pivothead’s first generation eyewear, Pivothead SMART provides full 1080p high definition (HD) video and 8 megapixel still imaging capabilities with enhanced camera capabilities, touch control and a modular design that enables adaptive functionality. Pivothead SMART modular accessories – Smart Mods – house WiFi, Bluetooth, GPS, Android operating system and enable HD Wireless live streaming.

Pivothead SMART’s expandable memory and battery life allow sports teams, entertainment organizations, broadcasters and enterprise users to create and distribute true point-of-view content like never before. Pivothead’s second screen sharing solution enhances in-stadium fan engagement for teams and leagues during live events. Streaming a true point-of-view perspective from players, coaches and sports broadcasters directly to Jumbotrons and mobile users adds an intimate, unique and unvarnished moment. Second screen sharing drives a deeper connection with fans, providing an inside, behind the scenes perspective that is a value added experience. Fans view content as it is made, sharing moments with their team that would have previously gone unseen.

“Our strategy is to integrate closely together with the sports and entertainment industry to create unique opportunities for broadcasting true point of view video to in-arena Jumbotrons, integration to Second Screen premium applications, and general in-broadcast use of POV of events before, during, and after the event,” says Chris Cox, Pivothead’s founder and CEO. “Our goal is to help broadcasters create unique, innovative content to improve overall fan experience and interaction.“

Pivotheads capabilities as a post production content creator enables broadcasters and sports teams to easily share from several locations in a stadium setting. ESPN recently captured Wichita State men’s basketball team from the point of view of players and fans as they finished their final regular season game undefeated. The St. Louis Rams implemented Pivothead’s into their 2013-2014 season, providing fans with a unique game day perspective from the locker room, in the stands, during half-time performances and on the road. In an effort to provide fans with a new unique player perspective, the New York Yankees On demand series documented pre-season practice from an infield, outfield, and catcher point of view.

Compatible Pivothead GRID Software offers the ability to live stream multiple Pivothead devices from a remote or local viewing facility, providing the broadcast community an effective end-to-end enterprise ready solution enabling true point-of-view second screen applications.
