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 3 robots to film from different angles. Just add “Extra Robots” to your standard PIXIO (see the online store to find the Extra Robot).
THE PIXIO WATCH
Can be worn as a watch, an armband, at the belt or in a pocket, and even attached to a microphone. Several watches can be used: the last one to press REC is filmed.
Or if you are a coach you can use the smartphone app. to control who is filmed and when. So easy to film with Pixio…!
Wear the watch in your pocket and film rehearsals of actors, dancers, etc. Set the zoom as tight or as large as needed, and just press REC when it is important to film for your debriefings or souvenirs.
THE PIXIO ROBOT
Can support a 5lbs 2.5kg camera, or a DSLR, an action cam. With a (non-provided) special interface it can also support a smartphone or tablet. 360° endless PAN rotation. 120°/s max. 4h autonomy.
SMOOTHER – MORE REACTIVE – MORE ACCURATE.
All indoor sports can be filmed with PIXIO: inside a gymnasium, ice skating rink, horse riding arena, skatepark, fencing hall… Enjoy the comfort of having a video very easily, without nobody behind the camera.
PIXIO can film your conferences and ceremonies. A great tool at affordable price! The watch can be worn for example in the pocket or attached to a microphone, but you can still wear it at the wrist. Thanks to the smartphone/tablet free Remote Control App., the responsible person can control several PIXIOs, start/stop recording, and choose who is filmed. He can even de-activate the automatic modes and control himself the frame.
SMARTPHONE/TABLET REMOTE CONTROL APP.
Control everything you can imagine… As a sport coach… As a video responsible… As an artist… Choose who is filmed, from which camera. Choose the zoom level, activate/deactivate the auto zoom. Deactivate the auto-follow mode and set your own frame. Configure a timelapse sequence… Remote Control App. is optional and free.
THE AUTOMATIC ZOOM
With a compatible camera (the list is above), PIXIO can adjust 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.
THE 3 MICRO-BEACONs
Put them around your playground and they automatically create your own local GPS for PIXIO, indoor as well as outdoor. Nothing to do, just switch on! Create your own local GPS with the 3 micro-beacons around your playground: horse riding arena, conference room, video studio, gymnasium… Switch on, and it’s done! No need to wait. No need to calibrate. You can move around and be filmed automatically. No need to stay right inside the beacons.
Micro-BEACONS are delivered with a micro-tripod for easy set-up anywhere. Just switch it on, and you can film during hours with the smallest, most reactive, most accurate, and easier auto-follow camera working indoor and outdoor.

WHAT TRIPOD DO YOU NEED
You need a tripod with a 3/8″ screw. It is bigger than the usual 1/4″ screw generally used for cameras. Do not use a tripod with a head, because of poor stability (except with high cost tripods!) and because it has a 1/4″ screw. If you want to use such a tripod with a 1/4″ screw, some small adaptors 1/4 – 3/8 exist.
Very silent motor. You can use a buetooth microphone (not provided) or any equivalent accessory to capture any distant voice.
TRACKS 1 to 16 WATCHES
And 1 to 3 cameras can track the watches.
