As an official supplier to the Volvo Ocean Race 2017-18, Garmin provides action and 360 cameras to the seven teams competing in the 45,000-mile race around the world. Garmin’s flagship waterproof action cameras, the VIRB® 360 and VIRB Ultra 30, will be used on each boat to capture high-quality video that can be easily edited and shared with race fans around the globe.
This waterproof VIRB Ultra 30 is an ultra HD action camera that captures 4K/30fps video with GPS G-MetrixTM data overlays that show performance metrics like how far, how high and how fast the user went. It also features voice control (in English only) so users can tell the camera to start, stop and “remember that.” It features an LCD touchscreen display and high-sensitivity microphone that even work through the waterproof case.
For a more immersive experience, the VIRB 360 captures fully spherical 360-degree video in up to 5.7K/30fps resolution with 360-degree audio, and it includes built-in sensors for augmented reality G-Metrix data overlays. HyperFrame Director Mode gives the user the editing power to easily reframe content after filming — using smooth camera pans, incredibly wide angles and even tiny planets.
Spherical stabilization ensures smooth video regardless of camera movement, and videos and photos are automatically stitched in VIRB Edit, and the free, easy-to-use VIRB Mobile app enables fast sharing as well as instant livestreaming, only available on compatible Apple® devices.
Garmin make products that are engineered on the inside for life on the outside, so our users can make the most of the time they spend pursuing their passions.
