Tachyon Introduces New Motorcycle Camera – The Tachyon BikerCam

05-March-2012 –Tachyon’s new BikerCam delivers exceptional audio and video quality and utilizes a wide-angle lens which captures a wide swath of the rider’s surroundings. While plugged into your bike’s electric system, it makes use of its infinite recording-loop technology, allowing for over 8 hours of recording on a 32GB micro memory card (sold separately). Once the card is full, the camera will recycle the earliest files while continuing to record and charge, making it the road warrior’s must-have accessory on long road trips.

The Quick-Release Handlebar Mount is designed to remain securely attached to the bike while the camera can very easily be removed from the mount when the rider is away from the bike.  While away, the fully-charged camera will be able to record for over four hours.

The BikerCam 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 for recording your events.

Included with each BikerCam is the new 12V Charge n’ Record Charger which is compatible with a 12V outlet, or any vehicle’s cigarette lighter. Optional accessories include a charger for 110V–240V outlets, allowing for continuous recording at the home or office, and making the multifaceted BikerCam appealing as a security system as well.

The camera is equipped with a built-in lithium rechargeable battery making it shock proof and resistant to cold weather.

Standard mounts included in the BikerCam camera package are the Contour Mount, for curved surfaces such as helmets and fenders, a standard Tripod Mount compatible with any ¼-20 inch universal tripod screw, and a rotating Clip Mount for caps, collars, or straps.

World’s Most Affordable Dive Cam Goes HD

(May 11, 2011) Tachyon®, Inc. – The little underwater camera that challenged the video quality of the high-dollar professional market, has released an HD version of their Tachyon Micro DiveCam. This new camera takes the Micro’s already crystal-clear video and sharpens it up to a dazzling HD 720p.

The most common problem with dive cameras is the water pressure turning the camera off.  Tachyon has solved that problem with their patented dive-lock feature. The dive-lock is a switch located inside the camera and, when locked, camera’s software disengages the ON/OFF button, preventing water pressure from prematurely shutting the camera off.

The Micro HD’s 135° wide-angle lens and high-dynamic light sensor helps you to catch more of your underwater adventure than ever before. Using the recommended Energizer Ultimate Lithium batteries, users get over two and half hours of hands-free, underwater footage to depths of over 100 ft (4ATM).

The Tachyon Micro Dive Cam in Action

Tachyon Micro users include scuba divers, free divers, professional fire and rescue dive teams and the US Navy, who use it for training drills.

Tachyon Micro cameras are currently being used by Elevated Scuba to explore the depths of Lake Mead, the largest reservoir in the United States. Tachyon has officially tested the Micro at depths of 100 feet, but as you can see in the above video, the scuba team is taking it down past 168 feet.

The Micro and Micro HD weigh in at only 4 ounces and can easily be mounted to a diving mask with the included goggle strap mount. The Tachyon Micro and Micro HD are waterproof as is, and do not require an additional bulky, waterproof case. The Micros need no DVR or software; they record onto a Micro SDHC card (up to 32GB) and are plug-and-play with both PC and Mac®.

Not only are the Micro and Micro HD perfect for diving and underwater activities, but they are perfect for all kinds of sports. They’ve been used for skiing, snowboarding, offroading, hunting, skateboarding, and even flying. They really are the ultimate all around multi-use cameras.

And for the Paintball and Airsoft communities, Tachyon offers an optional Picatinny Rail Mount for that amazing, first-person view.

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.

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.

Tachyon XC @ Oklahoma D-Day 2010 – Omaha Beach Scenario

Tachyon XC Helmet Cams in the middle of the intense action at the world’s largest paintball event; Oklahoma D-Day 2010 . This video focuses on the Omaha Beach Scenario, which had American forces landing on the beach and attempting to rush up the cliff to rout the entrenched German forces.  Well, this worked…in 1944.  But in 2010, the Germans held their ground.

The prototype Tachyon XC HD camera was used for the main filming, and Tachyon XC Micro and XC cameras, mounted on masks and helmets, were used to film the video that you can see in the smaller windows.

Tachyon would like to thank the organizers of D-Day 2010, as well as the thousands of players who made it such a successful event.
