CES 2012: Contour Teams Up With Cerevo

Contour, leader in hands-free camcorder, and Japanese based Cerevo, announced a partnership to bring live video and audio streaming at CES 2012. The new partnership will allow a simple HDMI cable to connect Contour’s Contour+ camera to Cerevo’s LiveShell to bring real-time video to the Ustream website. Marc Barros, CEO and Co-Founder of Contour, said, “It’s a perfect compliment to our Contour+ camera model. We start with the best hands-free, POV camera with built-in GPS and mobile connectivity – and have now add a wireless live-streaming solution with the LiveShell. Partnering with Cerevo and Ustream will allow Contour customers to share their ski run, bike route, or any other hands-free action with their family and friends in real-time.” The two will be a perfect compliment indeed. Picture below is a demonstration of the two devices at work.

The LiveShell will be on sale on Contour’s website for $299 on February 1, 2012. The Contour+, is also available now at Contour’s website and third party vendors. Do note the LiveShell will only work for the Contour+. Below is the technical stuff you can do with Contour+ and Cerevo LiveShell:
