LG to Launch Action Camera with LTE Connectivity

LG is preparing to launch an action camera with LTE connectivity built-in, allowing users to stream directly to sites such as YouTube Live without a smartphone.

The device, LG Action CAMLTE, will launch in South Korea next month followed by key markets worldwide including North America and Europe.

In addition to its live streaming feature, LG Action CAMLTE will, thanks to a software update scheduled for July, offer remote access functionality via 3G and LTE which will enable the device to be used as a CCTV camera for home monitoring or as an automobile dash camera. Action CAMLTE users will also be able to download recorded images and videos on their paired smartphones.

With a rating of IP67, the LG Action CAMLTE is protected from dust, sand and can be immersed in up to one meter of water for up to 30 minutes. A completely waterproof case (available in the third quarter) will enable the camera to participate in more vigorous activities such as surfing and scuba diving.

 An optional mount allows the LG Action CAMLTE to capture videos while attached to helmets, bicycles, cars and other fast moving objects, while the 1,400mAh battery will give Full HD recording for up to four hours.

We are committed to expanding the LG Playground ecosystem with both modules and standalone accessories and Action CAMLTE is one of many more that we plan to announce this year, said Juno Cho, LG Electronics and Mobile Communications Company president. Action CAMLTE is an example of the kind of innovation we will be bringing to market, devices that offer features unavailable in other competing products.
