Optrix releases the first ever wide-angle case and mount for iPhone and iPod Touch earlier this month in a bid to take the lead in the market where only a few players want to compete. Optrix XD Sport offers up to 175 degrees wide-angle video capture, a feature that no other camera mounts ever achieved. It also converts iPhone 4, 4S and iPod Touch into an video recorder which can be used to capture high-speed and fast-action sports in 1080p videos.
Optrix does not just want to provide iPhone and iPod Touch owners a platform to maximize the use of their devices, it also made sure its product is of high quality. Specifically designed for extreme sports, Optrix gave XD Sport military grade durability to conform to military spec MIL-STD-810F. It can easily be mounted on helmets used for motocross, skiing, skateboarding and mountain biking, according to Optrix founder John Willenborg.
“The XD Sport takes capturing adventures to another level, giving extreme sports enthusiasts an affordable option to other equipment on the market,” Willenborg said in a press release.
Currently available at [easyazon-link asin=”B008DKJBV8″ locale=”us”]Amazon[/easyazon-link], XD Sport is offered for $99. For such price, iPhone/iPod Touch owners will be getting a rugged, water-proof case and strong mounts which can work on any surface. People willing to buy it will get an iPhone case (polycarbonate shell with rubberized inner), a flat bed mount, a curved base mount, a quick release lever, lens cover, zip-tie, and a safety leash.
Optrix is a leading designer of action sports video cases. Its expertise in the field and the realization that many people are now using their smartphones to take pictures are the key to producing XD Sport.
“More pictures and videos are captured using cell phones than any other devices and Optrix enhances it by making their devices splash, spill, bump and drop proof,” said Willenborg.
