Pivo Inc, a leading developer of AI-technology for content creators, is upgrading its smart pods to include ‘Lock-On Tracking’ mode. Whether users want to capture themselves in a crowded place or record footage with more people in the shot, this new feature means Pivo will follow the star of the show’s movement, keeping them in the frame at all times, regardless of what is happening around them.
Using Pivo is like having a personal camera crew. Powered by AI-technology, the Pivo smartphone mount, which can rotate 360 degrees, automatically tracks a user’s face and body movements. It follows them at all times, zooming in and out, to make sure they are always in focus and in the frame. The new ‘Lock-On Tracking’ mode gives users even more control, by allowing them to manually select themselves in an environment where there are other people. This ensures the Pivo Pod stays locked on the correct person at all times.
“Our vision at Pivo is to become the creator-tech brand for the next digital era. Our community is at the heart of this — we want to support them to make sure they get the best experience. So when our users asked for single person motion-tracking, we prioritised it with our development team to get the feature ready as soon as we could. ‘Lock-On Tracking’ will make content creation even easier as you will no longer have to worry about who else is in the frame. This is a huge milestone for Pivo and we’re excited to share this with the world.” says CEO Ken Kim.
Pivo Pods enable users to capture videos and photos of themselves. With powerful app-driven motion tracking and easy-to-learn editing modes, creating content solo has never been so easy. Pivo has two models to choose from including:
Pivo Pod Active:
The Pivo Pod Active offers accurate tracking for faster movements, making it ideal for sports and fitness content creators and activities like dancing, athletics, skating and horse riding. Pivo Pod Active can be used in both portrait and landscape orientation, has four different speed modes as well as face, body and horse tracking, ensuring every moment of fast-paced content is captured, eliminating the need for a costly videographer or expensive camera and equipment.
The Pivo Pod Active comes with a companion remote and charging cable and is easy to use out of the box, no technical photography expertise required — users can focus on creating content they’re passionate about immediately.
The mount is compatible with tripods, including Pivo’s own standard Tripod and Tripod Mini (purchased separately) which both have a ¼″ UN thread universal mount, making them compatible with other devices including cameras.
Pivo Pod Lite:
For content creators whose videos don’t involve lots of high speed movement, Pivo’s entry level tracking mount, Pod Lite, uses the same AI tracking technology, freeing up their hands and allowing them to create content solo, without having someone else filming.
In addition to the hardware, a free companion app, Pivo+, integrates with Pivo Pod Active, allowing creators to host live fitness classes and video calls using the same auto-tracking technology, taking fitness and sports content to the next level and allowing for more interactive content.
Pivo Pod Active is available now for £124.99 from the Pivo website, Amazon and Currys. Pivo Pod Lite is just £69.99 and available in seven stylish colours. To use the new ‘Lock-On Tracking’ mode download or update the Pivo+ app which is available from the Apple App Store and Google Play.
