VIDEO - Consumer camcorder system

Bronze
2008

VIDEO is a two-part system designed to overcome the hurdles of the video-making process, making it more accessible and appealing to a wide user group. The dynamic user interface allows people to select the level appropriate to their ability. To prevent confusion, it only displays relevant, user-specific information. Advanced users are given the option of using various manual functions. The rotating lens encourages users to operate the camcorder with two hands, which increases stability and leads to better recordings. In addition, filming from various angles becomes much easier. The docking station provides enough space to store a large film library from which films can be burned directly onto DVD.
