Acer Holo360 Camera
The Acer Holo360 is hooked up with the Qualcomm Connected Camera Platform. Naturally, it is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 mobile processor.
Combining the power to stitch videos in real-time, integrated LTE connectivity, and a 3-inch touchscreen for operation, the Acer Holo360 provides an all-in-one solution to livestream 360-degree videos.
Panomorph optics certified by ImmerVision capture consistent high-resolution images across the field of view without distortion. This enables the Holo360 to deliver high-quality photos in 6.9K resolution and videos in 4K.
The Holo360 runs on Android 7.1. This means you can share 360-degree photos and videos directly to social networks. Furthermore, you can also preview videos directly on the device without the need to pair and sync with a smartphone or PC.
The Vision360 looks to be much more than just another dashcam.
Should an object collide with your vehicle when it is in motion; the device will start to record. That recording will include GPS coordinates of where the incident occurred, which is not only saved in a secure area on the device’s internal storage, but also uploaded to the cloud for evidence preservation.
Through the Vision360’s cloud-connected service, collisions with the car while it is parked will activate the device to record a video clip. Furthermore, it will send a notification to the your smartphone, and upload the video to the cloud.
Finally, for a bit of fun, users can record family outings or memorable road trips in action cam-quality, and relive the experience in the driver’s seat with a virtual reality headset.
Price and availability
The Acer Holo360 connected camera will be available in North America in November at $429 bundled with a water-resistant case; and in EMEA in Q4 with prices starting at €349.
