LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/14 -- Autographer®, the world's first intelligent wearable camera, today announces its new Autographer Mount Adapter. This latest addition from the brand will allow users to securely connect the camera to tripods, activity mounts and other photography accessories to perfectly place the camera in any location and capture spontaneous moments. There are two mounting points on the adapter for maximum versatility and the camera is ready to automatically take high quality, wide-angle shots all day long, so you're always prepared for that unexpected moment.
"Great things happen when you're least expecting it and some of the most treasured moments are rarely captured with standard cameras. We created the Mount Adapter for Autographer to help people record even more of these moments as naturally and spontaneously as they happen," said Simon Randall, managing director of Autographer. "We saw time-lapse customer videos of picnics, events, weddings and also road trips on bikes, scooters and even baby strollers. Our customers have been asking us for more secure ways to fix the Autographer in situations like these so our new Mount Adapter does just that."
The Mount Adapter is the perfect partner for Autographer's full-day battery, which can take up to 12 hours of time-lapse photography. Autographer recommends using the Mount Adapter with a range of third-party accessories that work seamlessly with the hands-free intelligent camera. These include:
1. Tripods: capture beautiful time-lapse sequences of your family on a day out at the beach or a birthday party.
2. Bike mounts: attach Autographer to your handlebars for a weekend excursion or to capture all the sights you miss on your commute. The mount can also be fixed to baby strollers allowing Autographer to document a day spent playing in the park.
3. Window mounts: record a scenic journey from the front car window, or fix Autographer to the garden window, leaving you free to spend all day playing with your children without any "photo call" interruptions.
4. Bottle mounts: mount Autographer to a wine or soft drink bottle during a family picnic or dinner party; taking images of natural smiles and fleeting moments without interruption.
Authentic Images of "Real Life" Rather Than "Posed Life"
With Autographer you can enjoy and experience the moment without having to pause to take photos. With its 136-degree wide-angle lens, Autographer can take an average of up to 2,000 images per day depending on user-defined sensitivity settings. Autographer chooses the perfect time to take a picture, using its five on-board sensors to detect changes in light, motion, direction, color and temperature. The camera comes with easy-to-use desktop software and a smartphone app, allowing users to view and edit photos; helping to construct a digital story of their day as they go about activities.
The Autographer Mount Adapter is available now from www.autographer.com and priced at $50.
Autographer was developed by OMG Life, the consumer subsidiary of OMG plc (Oxford Metrics Group). The Oxford-based company has a rich heritage in cameras and is the world's largest supplier of precision motion-tracking systems for films, computer games and broadcast television productions, as well as engineering and life science industries. A developer of Academy Award®-winning motion capture technology, OMG has produced ground-breaking work in films such as 'Gravity', 'The Golden Compass', 'Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince' and 'Tron: Legacy', as well as winning an Emmy Award for its camera-tracking system boujou.

Autographer's commitment to privacy
Autographer is designed to be hands-free and automatic, but not to be hidden. It must be worn externally in order to take photos and its size (37.4mm x 90mm) and yellow detailing mean it is highly visible. Autographer takes the subject of privacy very seriously as a business. As with any camera or smartphone, we would advise our customers to only take photos in appropriate locations. All of Autographer GPS data is personal to the user's device, unless they choose to share the information via Autographer software. Every purchase of an Autographer includes an Etiquette Guide with further information on responsible and appropriate use of the device.

There's Big Data, then there's really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big D...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...
