What is VENTURE?
VENTURE from Wolfcom® is one of the world’s most multipurpose wearable 4-in-1 HD camera. VENTURE features a rotatable camera head with a multi-functional, “clippable” design that can be used as a body cam, a mountable car cam, a flashlight cam and a livestream camera.
VENTURE is made of aircraft-grade aluminum and lightweight at 2.2 ounces. VENTURE has a 2.5 hours of battery life (up to 23 hours with optional battery pack). VENTURE will also vibrate to let you know when the unit has turned on, turned off, or when you need some more juice.
The VENTURE can be combined with additional Point of View (POV) cameras (Eye Vision, Covert Pinhole Button, Night Vision and Headset), allowing viewers to have the same perspective as the user. Venture records at 1080P and features a 120-degree wide-angle lens and 4 bright LED lights.
VENTURE’s mobile app acts as a wireless remote control to record video and take photos. VENTURE users can record and livestream video directly via a wi-fi connection to their smartphone. Live video is then streamed using the phone’s 4G/LTE connection. Access to a 4G/LTE connection is necessary for live streaming. If you own a VENTURE double check your wi-fi settings and make sure it’s connected.
