NEWBURY PARK, Calif., June 7, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Full HD is now Smaller, Lighter and Smarter. Introducing the all-new, radically different Replay XD1080. Starting with a clean sheet of paper, the video experts at Replay XD managed to combine stunning high definition video and a wide range of professional camera features into the smallest package on the market… period. Featuring a water-resistant, hard anodized, rugged aluminum housing for extreme adventures, the Replay XD1080 is the smallest and lightest full HD action camera on the market, and is packed with pro-level audio, live uncompressed HDMI video out in full HD, video playback, external audio line-in, time-lapse photography, and highly-configurable image and camera settings. All in a sleek, rugged, aluminum tube smaller than anything on the market. The game just changed.
At only 3 ounces, 28mm x 93mm, Replay XD 1080 is the lightest and smallest 1080P camera on the market. Whether shooting on a movie set, from the hood of a racecar, flying high on a Motocross bike, Mountain Bike, Snowboard, or carving through a wave, the Replay XD1080 can capture jaw-dropping video where others simply cannot. The new model features color rich 1080p or 960p HD video at 30 frames per second or 720p HD at 30/60 frames per second for high-speed action. The system packs a crystal clear non-fisheye, non-distorted 135 degree field of view lens and 5-megapixel image sensor. It will allow the addition of widely available lenses, filters & polarizers. Time-lapse photography can be shot in 3, 5, 15 & 30 second increments in full 5MP, 2592 x 1944 printable stills.
Replay XD1080 provides a live HDMI out that can not only allow for connection to any HDMI monitor for precise framing of your shot, but it can also stream live uncompressed video in whatever mode you select 1080p, 960p or 720p as the action happens. Perfect for broadcast transmission for live television or on-site production. The Replay XD can also do just that… Replay direct to any HDMI compatible TV or device through an incredibly intuitive playback interface.
In addition to the camera's best-in-class onboard mic, the Replay XD1080 also has a secondary audio input that allows users to feed audio from their own source such as race radios, LAV mics iPods and more. Filmmakers can mic their subjects for crystal clear audio in every scenario.
The Setting of modes is so simple through the rear multi color LED panel. Pick your setting once and replace the cap, it's that easy. The Power and Record buttons are on the top and require one simple touch. Each command provides a specific vibration feedback to let you know it's starting or stopping. The Replay XD1080 records up to 120 minutes of video on a single charge of the internal Li-Ion battery. It comes with a 4GB micro SD card and can support up to a 32GB micro SD. The system also remembers the last setting and holds it, even if you run the battery down. Also, simple "Quick-Clip" function allows on the fly editing in the field.
Unlike other, bulky action sports cameras, the Replay XD line can be mounted virtually anywhere, due to its compact size and shape. The Replay XD1080 comes with an exclusive HeimLock swivel/tilt mount, and LowBoy flat mount. It comes with 2 convex and 2 flat SnapTrays with 3M VHB adhesive to mount almost anywhere.
In addition to the two mounts, the camera also comes with a kit that includes a soft silk protective pouch, a black ballistic carrying case, 4GB micro SDHC card which holds up to 2 hours of video, USB charge / data cable, Micro USB card reader & micro SD to SD card adaptor for easy file transferring, HDMI view and playback cable, AC power adapter, Car power Adapter, safety leash.
Replay XD's years of motorsports and specialty manufacturing experience also inspired the most complete line of optional Pro Mounts, billet aluminum tubular chassis mounts, helmet mounts, single and multi-camera suction cup mounts, skateboard mounts, magnet & gun mounts. Replay XD is constantly engineering ways to make mounting and using Replay XD cameras even more effortless.
"We wanted to design a camera that can go places other cameras can't," says Replay XD President, John Spar, " Whether you're bombing down the mountain, or setting a fast lap, your Replay XD1080 will always get a solid shot in perfect High Def clarity. The new Replay XD1080 offers even more freedom to capture the action exactly how it happens."
Replay XD was designed by a group of racing professionals with over 50 years of experience in the high performance racing industry. The development team saw the need for ultra-lightweight cameras that could capture never before seen video footage from the most extreme racing and action environments on earth. The Replay XD1080 has been put through the most grueling conditions possible and has come out unscathed with crystal clear footage. Replay XD's goal is to bring you the most technologically advanced recording systems available today. www.replayxd.com (805) 480-9800.
