PIXIO: Your Personal Auto-Follow Camera for INDOOR & OUTDOOR activities

 

PIXIO is the world first auto-follow camera to film both INDOOR and OUTDOOR. He tracks the watch, films and zooms in & out automatically. Now you can film more often, independently, without the assistance of a cameraman. Film sport, rehearsals, actors, pastors, conferences, events...!

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

“Before PIXIO, I had a still camera. It was difficult to see particular aspects of the riding. With PIXIO, I stay in the frame, it zoom in and out, so I'm able to see every step very clearly.

—  Suzie Halle, Dressage, USA

AUTOMATIC ZOOM

With a compatible camera (refer to the complete list), PIXIO adjusts the zoom automatically, in real time, in order to keep the same frame size around the subject being filmed. 
How does it work? At any moment with the watch at a distance of more than 5 meters from the camera, you can go behind the PIXIO and press + and - to set the frame you like. Nothing else. This frame will be kept automatically when the watch distance increases or decreases. The setting is saved into memory and you don't have to do it again the next time you use your PIXIO.

AUTOMATIC ROTATION

PIXIO is designed for many applications. From fast-paced sports to conferences: high responsiveness, accuracy, softness of movements. 

PAN: Rotations 360° endless. 120°/s max (45mph at 30ft; 72km/h at 10m). Manual TILT rotations +/- 10°.

USE YOUR OWN STANDARD POWERFUL CAMERA

Any standard camera can be used for both indoors and outdoors. This is very important for you to have the latest features and the very best quality from renowned camera brands. Using one of the compatible cameras will allow you to enjoy the auto-zoom and the remote control of the 'record' from the watch and from a smartphone. 
The camera is connected to the robot with a custom cable. PIXIO is provided with a "Multi" cable for recent SONY cameras. Other cables are available in the online store. 
PIXIO can support cameras up to 2KG (4,40lbs)

MULTI USERS

With your PIXIO, you can film up to 16 people, each one wearing a watch. Two possibilities: the last one who presses its button is filmed, or someone is using the app. on its smartphone or tablet to chose who is filmed. 

You can also use up to 16 robots to film from different angles. Just add "Extra Robots" to your standard PIXIO (see the online store to find the Extra Robot). Whatever the number of watches, a maximum of 3 different watches can be filmed at the same time by the 16 robots; It means that several robots will sometime have to film the same watch.

SMARTPHONE/TABLET REMOTE CONTROL APP

Control everything you can imagine... As a sport coach... As a video responsible... As an artist...

Compatible Cameras

Any camera up to about 2.5kg can be used on PIXIO because it has a standard 1/4’ screw.
But it’s much better to use one of the supported models for the automatic zoom and the remote control of the record from the watch, or from the free smartphone/tablet app. The list of supported models is updated regularly, they are mainly Sony and Canon cameras.
Note that Panasonic, JVC, and some other camcorders don’t have any plug to control their zoom and their record. They can be used on PIXIO, but without the auto-zoom and without the remote control of the record.
DSLRs don’t have any plug to control their zoom, they are not supported by PIXIO but can be mounted on it.

Compatible SONY cameras and Controller Files

If your PIXIO was delivered before November 8, 2017, PIXIO is programmed with v1.2 software and SONY HDR-PJ810 camera settings pre-installed. 
If your PIXIO was delivered after November 8, 2017, PIXIO is programmed with v2.8 software and SONY HDR-CX450 camera settings pre-installed. 
If your PIXIO was delivered after January 1, 2018, PIXIO is programmed with v2.9 software and SONY HDR-CX450 camera settings pre-installed. 

When you receive your PIXIO, you MUST: 

1. Read the User Manual (we made it light, it's easy!) 
2. Upgrade to the last firmware version IF IT IS NOT ALREADY IN YOUR PIXIO 
3. Install the camera controller file corresponding to your camera model IF IT IS NOT ALREADY IN YOUR PIXIO
(You don't need steps 2 and 3 if you ordered one of the Live Coaching Packs because it is done in the factory for those packs)

Any camera up to about 2.5kg can be used on PIXIO because it has a standard 1/4’ screw. 

But it’s much better to use one of the supported models for the automatic zoom and the remote control of the record from the watch, or from the free smartphone/tablet app. The list of supported models is updated regularly here, they are mainly Sony and Canon cameras. 

A few models easy to find this year: The CX450/CX455 is a ‘middle of the road’ model. The CX625/CX675/PJ675 is also a 'middle of the road’ model, with an improved image quality and a better steadyshot. People who want to do professional edits prefer the AX53. The AX53 is also better in low lights. People who want to have a low cost model prefer the CX240 or CX405. Be careful that the CX240 and the CX405 battery cannot be replaced by a bigger one, it’s lifetime is about 1h15 to 1h30. And the CX240 and CX405 objectives do not have a thread so it’s not compatible with raincapes. All those camera models have a very good image quality, much better than a smartphone, even 4K smartphones.

Note that Panasonic, JVC, and some other camcorders don’t have any plug to control their zoom and their record. They can be used on PIXIO, but without the auto-zoom and without the remote control of the record. 

DSLRs don’t have any plug to control their zoom, they are not supported by PIXIO but can be mounted on it. 

Upload the file corresponding to your camera model, for the zoom control and the record control. As explained in the User Manual, just put the file on a micro-SD card, insert the card in the robot, and switch ON the robot. Wait 10 to 15 seconds, remove the card, put it again in the computer, check that the file has disappeared from the card.

Compatible Cannon cameras and Controller Files

GoPro, JVC, Panasonic and Nikon cameras

The JVC, Panasonic, Nikon, GoPro cameras don’t have any plug to control their zoom and their ‘record’. They will have only the automatic rotations. For some users it’s OK, but for others the auto-zoom and the remote control of the record from the watch, or from a smartphone, is interesting. For sport it is usually important. 

The GoPro cameras can be mounted on PIXIO with their small tripod adaptor.
