The World’s Best Biker Cam now Rolls in Full HD 1080p

Bikers can roll down the highway, capturing scenery, bikes, and buddies in full, wide-screen HD 1080p. The BikerCam HD 1080p is engineered for shooting forward in outdoor areas, rather than in close, enclosed areas where a fisheye lens is needed. BikerCam’s image therefore looks more natural, with distant objects not too small to see and close objects not distorted.

For continuous recording while riding, the BikerCam can connect to your bike’s power via the included 3’ USB cable and the bike’s USB or 12V socket. The package includes a 12V adaptor plug.
When connected to your bike’s power, the BikerCam will start up and start recording whenever you turn on your power. It will then stop recording and turn off when you power down your engine. When you are recording the cable will continuously charge your BikerCam, removing the need to worry about battery power.

There is also no need to worry about the space remaining on your memory card because BikerCam makes use of looping technology to overwrite you oldest files with your most recent videos. This allows you to run your camera nonstop and remove important video files only when you feel the need to preserve a recording.

An optional time & date stamp reminds you of when your video was taken.

BikerCam by Tachyon Enables Riders to Get Over 17 Hours of Continuous HD Recording

bikercam, tachyon, biker video, motorcycle videoTachyon, Inc. has developed a way for motorcycle video enthusiasts to get nearly unlimited recording time while riding. With the BikerCam’s 12V Charge n’ Record Charger connecting the camera to the bike, the camera will receive continuous power that will charge the BikerCam while it is recording.

Other motorcycle cameras currently on the market offer a battery life of only 1 to 2 hours of recording time. This forces riders to either stop often to recharge, or to accept missing recording most of the ride. But the BikerCam, connected to the 12V Charge n’ Record Charger, wires directly to the bike’s 12V socket for unlimited power. Other cameras will also face the problem of a full memory card. But the BikerCam is equipped with looped-recording technology that begins recording over the oldest files once the card is full. A 64GB memory card (sold separately) will give the rider over 17 hours of video before the card is full. This enables the rider to focus on riding and to forget the camera, only downloading files when necessary to save something special. When removed from the handlebar mount and unplugged from the charger, the fully charged camera can also be used to record videos away from the bike, for another 4.5 hours.

bikercam, tachyon, biker video, motorcycle videoBikerCam utilizes a wide-angle lens that captures more of the road and other vehicles, without the undesired fish-eye effect, produced by other cameras. It is the perfect camera for those long road trips and for recording the beautiful scenery and winding roads. Record all of the rallies, not just the highlights. Record the whole trip to Sturgis on one card, or get all the action at Daytona Beach without taking time out to recharge the camera. And with the video time stamp, the time and date will appear on the video, for future reference.

BikerCam, with its contour mount, will easily mount to helmets or fenders. And when attached to its Quick-Release Handlebar Mount, can also mount to the motorcycle’s handlebars, engine guards, sissy bars, or racks. The Quick-Release Handlebar Mount is designed to remain securely attached to the bike, while the camera can be easily removed from the mount at any time. Once removed from the bike, the camera can be used as a dash cam in a car, a security camera at home, and much more.
Included with each BikerCam is a Rainproof Cover which will protect it from rain, dust, and flying stones. Charging and mounting the camera are unaffected when using the cover.

bikercam, tachyon, biker video, motorcycle videoBikerCam is also capable of taking time-lapse photos. One photo will be taken every two seconds. Each photo is time and date stamped, which is extremely useful when there is a need for documenting unsafe drivers or accidents.
Like all Tachyon cameras, the BikerCam could not be easier to use. It is ready to go right out of the box and its simple, one-button operation eliminates any confusion for its users. The cameras are also capable of plug-and-play on a PC or a Mac.

The BikerCam only weighs 1.7 oz and boasts the patented 8-way mounting system which allows for an unparalleled range of mounting positions, allowing the user to rotate the camera through the 12, 9, 6, and 3 o’clock positions, as well as forwards or backwards. And this can all be accomplished very easily while the BikerCam rests in the mount.

bikercam, tachyon, biker video, motorcycle videoBikerCam makes use of a built-in lithium rechargeable battery, which is ideal for riding in the cold, or shooting other action sports such as snowmobiling or snowboarding. This internal battery, tightly enclosed within the case, is designed to prevent loss of footage due to shock when engaging in extreme activities.
Standard mounts for the BikerCam are the Contour Mount, for mounting to curved surfaces such as the side or tops of helmets or fenders, a standard Tripod Mount that will attach to any ¼-20 inch universal tripod screw, and a Clip Mount with multiple angles of rotation making it perfect for caps, collars, straps, and do-rags.

Gun owners may also want to check out the Tachyon, Inc. Picatinny Rail Mount and GunCam® accessories.

The BikerCam System, which includes the camera, the Contour, Tripod, and Clip Mounts, the 12V Charge n’ Record Charger, and the Quick-Release Handlebar Mount, can be purchased for only $189.99 from the Tachyon website.

Tachyon, Inc. Extends Test & Evaluate Offer to Law Enforcement Agencies Worldwide

Lewisville, TX — Tachyon, Inc., maker’s of the World’s Toughest Tactical Cameras, is extending the company’s T & E program for law enforcement personnel to include agencies worldwide.

Law enforcement agencies today face many hurdles while trying to protect and serve the citizens. Lack of manpower, lack of funds, and lack or equipment are just a few. The Tachyon line of tactical cameras can solve a lot of those issues because these cost-effective cameras are built with the needs and budgets of the law enforcement community in mind. And by capturing time-stamped, officer-perspective video and sound of events as they unfold, Tachyon tactical cameras may reduce dramatically the number of false complaints and lawsuits directed at the department.

Whether attached to an officer’s cap, mounted on the dashboard of a cruiser, or on a SWAT unit’s helmets or guns, officers will be able to see the versatility and durability of these lightweight, tough, little cameras. Please follow this link to check out the cameras and accessories. Just select the items the department would like to evaluate and Tachyon will ship them out to test for 30 days. At the end of the 30 days, the department can decide to return them or purchase them.

OPS HD as a Dash Camera

The Tachyon OPS HD and OPS HD Night Vision police tactical cameras should meet every departments needs – tough, compact, and cost-effective cameras that will record in quality HD video with crystal-clear audio. The current date and time is stamped on every video and photo to aid in documenting different activities. These camera provides over four hours of recording time on a single charge of its rechargeable battery, and can easily be recharged from any laptop or computer. Tachyon also offers the Charge n’ Record charger which, when used with a 12V source, gives unlimited power on the go. For recharging indoors, Tachyon offers a 110-240V charger. Unlimited recording time is assured with the continuous looping technology that automatically records over the oldest data. When using a 32GB memory card, the camera will get over eight hours of data before the card is full and data starts being recorded over. This makes Tachyon tactical helmet cameras an excellent choice as dash cameras or motorcycle cameras.

With a weight of only 1.2 oz, the camera is hardly noticeable and doesn’t get in the way of the job. And with the patented 8-direction mounting system, the mounting options are virtually unlimited. These Tachyon cameras have one-button operation that starts and stops recording. This allows for easy operation even while wearing heavy gloves and gear. Whether taking video or time-lapse photos, the camera picks up all the action with the 125 degree field of vision and with little fish-eye effect. All files are saved on the micro memory card and can easily be transferred to a hard drive for playback and storage.

Tachyon has also developed a mountable infrared light for use with the OPS HD Night Vision infrared camera. The compact, 940nm infrared light can be mounted to helmets, caps, guns, and tripods in the same way as the camera. With the Tachyon IR light being an invisible 940nm, the officer’s location will not be given away when the light is in use.

Included in the box with the cameras are a Rainproof Cover, a Contour Mount (for mounting as a helmet camera, shield camera or dash camera), a Tripod Mount for attaching to a ¼ 20 inch tripod screw, a Clip Mount for clipping the camera to just about anything, including caps and vests. Optional accessories include the Quick-Release Handlebar Mount, which can be easily mounted on a police motorcycle or police bicycle, the Picatinny Rail Mount for mounting the camera to any type of gun or helmet with a Picatinny rail. Along with this, Tachyon offers GunCam rails for mounting the cameras, inside the Picatinny Rail Mount, to rifles, shotguns, handguns, and scopes. And for power, there is the 12V and 110-240V Charge n’ Record Chargers, which enable the camera to get continuous power for loop recording.

Tachyon Releases World’s Smallest and Lightest SD and HD Helmet Cameras

Tachyon, Inc., known as the maker of the world’s toughest helmet cameras, is unveiling a brand new line of the world’s smallest and lightest helmet cameras. Tachyon’s latest product, the Tachyon OPS and OPS HD, will be available this summer. The Tachyon OPS line was designed from the ground up, with the desire to create the best helmet cameras in mind.

Tachyon OPS

The Tachyon OPS clipped onto the bill of a cap

The OPS weighs in at only one ounce and measures just .95 inches in width and height and is 2.252 inches long. The OPS HD is only slightly larger. The OPS cameras also boast of a patented 8-way mounting system that gives the user an unparalleled range of mounting positions. The camera can face forward or backward towards the user, and can also rotate inside it’s mounts from the 12 to the 9 to the 6 to the 3 o’clock positions. This lets the user position the camera correctly, so that they can film from any direction.

The camera couldn’t be easier to use. It is ready to go right out of the box and has a simple, one-button operation. The cameras are also plug-and-play with a PC or a Mac.

The OPS line comes equipped with three standard mounts: A clip mount, with multiple angles of rotation. This mount is perfect for caps and straps and collars. A contour mount, for mounting to curved surfaces, such as motorcycle or bicycle helmets. And a standard tripod mount that will attach to any ¼-20 inch universal tripod screw.

For more extreme activities, such as paintball and airsoft, and riding around dust and gravel, the OPS comes with a extremely durable piece of clear plastic impact armor, that fits snugly over the camera and mounts.

Additional GunCam mounts are targeted at hunters and other fans of gun sports. These include a patented 8-direction Picatinny rail mount, three different shotgun and scope rails, and a rifle rail. The zinc-alloy Picatinny rail mount and rails allow for the secure mounting of the OPS to handguns, rifles, shotguns and assault rifles, without any modifications being done to the gun.

Tachyon OPS and OPS HD compared in size

Tachyon OPS and OPS HD compared in size to quarters.

The OPS cameras record around two hours of video onto an 8GB Micro SD card. They have a built-in Li-Ion rechargeable battery that is perfect for filming in extreme temperatures. They feature a high-dynamic light sensor with superior light gathering ability that makes them ideal for low-light situations and indoor filming.

“We design our products with the specific needs of our customers in mind,” said John Chase, Sales Director for Tachyon, Inc. “The cameras are virtually weightless and the 8 directional mount is groundbreaking. The GunCam accessories are a hunter’s dream come true.”

To go along with the small size and light weight, the OPS prices are small and light as well. The standard OPS package is $99.99 and the HD package is $149.99. Any aspiring action film makers can now easily and affordably record and share their videos. The OPS cameras will be available this summer.
