Action Cam Records 4K, 1080p, Live Streams 480p Over LTE

A startup called Sioeye is joining the action cam market — currently dominated by players such as GoPro, Sony, Garmin and TomTom — with its Iris4G, billed as the first Android action camera capable of live streaming over LTE. “Sioeye is capping the Iris4G’s streams at 480p to make sure they remain uninterrupted, trading quality for reliability,” notes The Verge. “Companies like GoPro, on the other hand, hang their business largely on image quality, so it behooves them to wait until users can reliably stream at least 720p HD footage before they even consider the feature.” However, the Iris4G can record 1080p video while simultaneously live streaming.
