The Korean hardware company LG just stepped up the game for portable action cameras by ditching the requirement for a tethered mobile connection in order to stream images. The new CAMLTE has the ability to connect directly to the Internet via built-in 3G and LTE connectivity and live-stream straight to your viewers’ screens.
The CAMLTE is the first action camera in the world that features it’s own onboard Internet connectivity features that can work independently from a mobile phone. It is capable of streaming directly to services like YouTube, CCTV systems for home monitoring, or car dashboards. Users can actually control the camera remotely, and of course, it also can be tethered to your mobile device for complete direct control as well.
LG’s high tech camera is designed to compete in the market with other ruggedized recording devices. It has an IP67 rating, which means it can be immersed in up to a 3 feet of water for up to 30 minutes, it’s completely dust-proof, and it comes with an optional mount to attach to helmets, vehicles, objects, and pets. The battery has a whopping 4-hour run time that lets you record video in HD for the entire duration.
