PRESS SUMMARY

ION (www.ionaudio.com), a leader in consumer entertainment technology, announces ION TWIN VIDEO, the world’s first video recorder with front and back lenses.

ION’s TWIN VIDEO is an innovative new take on the handheld video camera because, for the first time, anyone can capture themselves and what they are seeing at the same time on one device. This easy-to-use camera makes vlogging, or video blogging, easy thanks to a few live editing features. Users will enjoy TWIN VIDEO’s front and rear lenses that they can control independently. While recording, TWIN VIDEO enables users to select and swap which picture is being recorded, split the screen to view both video feeds and even inlay picture in picture to create exactly the desired effect.

While TWIN VIDEO has powerful, advanced features and capabilities, users will find that it fits easily into their everyday lives thanks to its compact, handheld size. This web-friendly video device is designed to meet the needs of today’s highly social web. TWIN VIDEO creates videos that are perfect for sharing on Web sites such as YouTube.

TWIN VIDEO records onto a standard SD or SDHC card so users will find it to be compatible with a wide range of cards and readers including those built into many of the latest Mac and PC computers.

An included DUO STAND dual-function handle and table stand make holding and stable placement of TWIN VIDEO easy. Users can operate the TWIN VIDEO on either its internal, rechargeable battery, or plugged into a wall-power source. It connects via USB to virtually any Mac or PC for easy video transfer.

“It’s one thing to capture the family gathering, but it is an entirely different experience when you find yourself in the video too. Whether you want to share your experience riding a roller coaster, interviewing a subject or producing scripted videos, TWIN VIDEO changes the video-capture game,” said Gregg Stein, Managing Director, ION. “Until now, you needed two cameras and expensive editing software to create a video from multiple angles. Now a first-time TWIN VIDEO user can capture the subject in front of them as well as their viewpoint – live – on the fly .”

TWIN VIDEO will be available from ionaudio.com during Q2 2010.
