"We just made hands-free a lot more hands-free. We're continuing to innovate in ways to make it easier for people to capture and share highlights than any other video camera. Contour is a creation tool, and we're always looking for ways to make it easier for people to capture and share epic moments," said Marc Barros. "The new remote control works with our Contour+ and ContourGPS cameras, so you can mount the camera on the hood of your car and control video footage from your phone while sitting in the driver's seat -- this level of remote control is an example of our leadership in mobile connectivity."
The Contour Connect App gives active people:
- New Additional Flexibility: No need to have your Contour+ or ContourGPS cameras within arm's reach to record. With this new feature, users can start and stop recording remotely with their Android smartphone!
- Improved Streaming Capabilities: An HDMI cable connects the Contour+ camera to a TV for video streaming capabilities and can be controlled using the remote control functionality
