POV (Point-Of-View) Cameras are traditionally designed to capture the scene in front of a person. Also coincided as “action cams” these POV cameras are innately small in size, discreet and positioned in hard-to-reach places where traditional cameras physically can’t. This allows for a unique perspective on captured scenes.

With today’s demand in video content creation, POV cameras enable creators to capture unique and dynamic video in multi-camera arrays for professional live streaming productions. However, most streaming applications are indoors, as most cameras fail to operate outside in the various weather conditions. Live streaming from a cellphone became a popular choice but was limited to the small camera sensor and minimal camera features. Most experienced livestream productions look down on cellphones as they lack the “professional” aspect. Another popularized POV solution is the GoPro, which revolutionized the “action cam” with its waterproof feature. However, the GoPro falls short in the features department, lacking in lens options, wired “weatherproof” streaming, and camera settings. Most importantly, these last two options don’t offer NDI® compatibility, limiting the creative workflow to just cables and wires. With all of this considered, there is an enormous gap in outdoor POV cameras. Streaming shouldn’t be confined to the indoors when there is a whole world out there to enjoy!

Introducing the AIDA Imaging HD-NDI-IP67 and the HD-NDI-MINI, being the first of its kind for POV NDI|HX streaming cameras. These cameras were designed for a multitude of dynamic live streaming applications, from outdoor sporting events, bioresearch, concerts and more. These Cameras are full-featured with a Sony progressive scan CMOS sensor which captures unwavering Full-HD video over NDI|HX, SRT, or IP protocols. The IP67 weatherproof rating keeps the camera internals safe from moisture and dust. The 10ft weatherproof braided cable also protects the most sensitive cabling safe and out of harm’s way. Overall, the HD-NDI-IP67 and HD-NDI-MINI are the first true all-weather POV solutions that grant full control of NDI|HX in any outdoor streaming environment.
