AUTOMATIC ZOOM

With a compatible camera (refer to the complete list), PIXIO adjusts 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.

PIXIO robot cameraman rotates automatically

AUTOMATIC ROTATIONS

PIXIO is designed for many applications. From fast-paced sports to conferences: high responsiveness, accuracy, softness of movements.

PAN: Rotations 360° endless. 120°/s max (45mph at 30ft; 72km/h at 10m). Manual TILT rotations +/- 10°.

USE YOUR OWN STANDARD POWERFUL CAMERA

Any standard camera can be used for both indoors and outdoors. This is very important for you to have the latest features and the very best quality from renowned camera brands.

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

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.

LIGHT & EASY TO USE

Wear the watch, put the 3 micro-beacons around the playground, switch-on, and it's done! No calibration time. Just enjoy the video!

LIVE STREAMING AND LIVE COACHING WITH PIXIO

Live streaming services offered by camera manufacturers and social networks are possible since cameras on PIXIO are quite standard, but they have a delay of 10 to 40 seconds.

For real-time lessons over the Internet, other solutions are therefore necessary, proposed in a PIXIO LIVE COACHING pack which works with Skype or FaceTime on a computer placed near the camera, and therefore virtually no delay of the image and sound received in an headset.

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

AUTONOMY PIXIO 4h, WATCH 3h, Micro-BEACON 3h

Li-Ion Batteries. All chargers included: WIRELESS CHARGER for the watch. Standard USB chargers for PIXIO and Micro-BEACONS. It is possible to increase the battery life of the beacons and the robot to 5-6 hours with 3000mAh power banks, and to 12-14 hours with 10000mAh power banks. Power banks are available in most supermarkets. People using power banks with their PIXIO also have 2 watches: one is charging while the other is used

in order to film all day long in a conference room or an arena. It also allows to install PIXIO for months or years at the same place

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 compatible with PIXIO?

Any DSLR can be mounted on Pixio. But DSLRs do not have a motorized zoom. The zoom will remain fixed. Be careful 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 satellite, 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 lose you, and it will find you again when you come back.

Can I use PIXIO in a building with metallic walls?

Yes. Just take care to have all the elements of PIXIO a few inches (a few centimeters) away from the metal.

Can I use PIXIO robot without the three beacons?

No. The three easy to set up beacons included with the PIXIO allow the robot to be responsive, precise and to film from 330ft (100meters): it is exactly what makes PIXIO a unique technological product. The three beacons are used by the watch to calculate 10 times per second the position of the robot which explains exactly why you need the beacons to enjoy your PIXIO experience.

How long does the beacon battery last? What if I need to film for a longer period?

The beacons battery lasts about 3 hours. If you still need more time to film, you can always use a power bank (not included). Just plug the power bank to the beacon and that’s it!

What are the maximum and minimum operating temperatures?

As any electronic devices, PIXIO operation is not guaranteed at temperatures below 0°C or temperatures above 40°C. In real life, we have many customers using PIXIO for more than one year in cold countries, Canada, Sweden, Iceland, Norway, Finland etc., and they never had any problem in cold weather. And in our lab, we tested PIXIO at -18°C.
Batteries usually have less autonomy in the cold, this is probably the main consequence.

Works well

I love PIXIO because of its good tracking feature which works both indoor and outdoor. I was afraid that it might be a little bit fragile because of the plastic material but it's exactly the same with the camera, so it's fine.

Works well

I use the Pixio plus a Sony CX540 and Cullmann tripod. Set up works very well. There are many video cameras you can use depending on the quality you want. Well worth it!

Must say I was a little bit surprised to see I had some taxes to pay when it was delivered but it was mentioned on the website while checking out though.
