CES 2015 LIQUID IMAGE ADDS VERIZON XLTE AND STREAMING METADATA MAKING THE EGO LS THE ULTIMATE CONNECTED CAMERA

Las Vegas, NV January 4th, 2015 – Liquid Image Ego LS camera is now enabled to stream over the Verizon 4G LTE network including XLTE allowing for fast live streaming. The Ego LS is also enabled to integrate streaming metadata from other peripheral connected devices such as biometrics, geolocation, and other sensor information.  The Ego LS will be demonstrated over the Verizon Wireless Network at the International CES show January 7th-10th. This product is anticipated to ship first quarter 2015.

The Ego LS is a multi-functional connected device that pairs a wearable camera with a variety of wireless features. The wireless features include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Low Frequency RF. The device can transmit video and images over 4G LTE as well as through Wi-Fi. It can connect to other devices and remote controls through local networks or direct connections. The live transmission is useful for applications that range from Public Safety and Security to Promotional and Social uses. The end user may choose to utilize a private or a public network depending on their specific needs.

The initial launch of the Ego LS was delayed from 2014 to the first quarter of 2015 in order for the camera to support Verizon XLTE. Having dual Bands supported by the Verizon Wireless Network will increase video streaming capacity for the Ego LS device.  During this extended development time the size and form factor of the 4G LTE Sled was optimized. Incorporation of API from third party peripheral devices was also initiated. This incorporation allows metadata to be transferred live from peripheral devices for specific applications and vertical markets. A list of peripheral devices will be available at the launch of the Ego LS and with each firmware update to the product. 

CES 2015 tradeshow attendees can visit Liquid Image in South Hall booth #31506 to view live demonstrations.  For additional information please see the Ego LS Use Case Scenarios and Ego LS Specifications. Details regarding mounts and accessories will be available when the Ego LS ships in 2015.

The Ego LS Model 800 is estimated to retail at $399.99 in the US. The first shipment, estimated to release in the first quarter of 2015, will be certified for the Verizon Wireless Network. International markets currently in development are estimated to follow in second or third quarter of 2015 for the UK, Europe, Russia, Japan and Canada.   

Specifications and prices are estimated at this time. Final details will be listed on the Liquid Image website when the Ego LS Model 800 becomes available. Sign up for notification of product shipment at www.liquidimageco.com.

LIQUID IMAGE SPONSORED IDB RACING COMPETES IN THE 92ND ANNUAL PIKES PEAK INTERNATIONAL HILL CLIMB

Santa Rosa, CA., June 23, 2014 – Team IDB Racing made it to the top of the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in a total time of 12:10.435 which put the team in 14th in the Time Attack 1 Class and 78th overall out of 130 racers.

The Pikes Peak International Hill Climb is one of the oldest, toughest races in the country located in Colorado Springs.  It is often referred to as “The Race to the Clouds” as the course measures 12.42 miles over 156 turns that begins at 9,390 feet and finishes at the 14,115 foot summit of Pikes Peak.  Liquid Image was proud to sponsor team owner and driver, Wil Kitchens, in IDB Racing’s first major race appearance.  The team brought their purpose-built BMW M3 all the way from Texas to conquer America’s Mountain, but ran into some bad luck in the practice rounds that slowed down the car on race day.

“We started the week off great and after the first day of practice our times put us 6th in class,” said Kitchens. “We came back next day ready to drop our times, but hit a damp spot in the pavement which put the car off track damaging the vehicle’s aerodynamics package beyond repair.”

IDB Racing managed to put the car back together and back on the track with some disadvantages.  Kitchens managed to limp the wounded BMW to the top of the Peak where his team celebrated their first finish at PPIHC.

"Despite finishing much further back in the field than we intended to, we were able to acquire a great deal of information that will help us come back next year in much greater form.  We were able to get some excellent video footage with the Ego HD cameras provided to us by Liquid Image,” said Crew Chief Ryan Warren.  “The cameras functioned wonderfully, the supplied mounts worked flawlessly, and their super simple operation allowed us to focus on other aspects of the car rather than having to fiddle with buttons and settings to get the cameras rolling. An added bonus was their appearance - their bright white finish and sleek styling looks awesome on the car and in photos!"

IDB Racing is a small repair and restoration shop located in Houston, Texas which offers factory diagnostic equipment, bumper-to-bumper repairs, towing and transportation, and more.
