Rick Loughery the Director of Communications at GoPro shows off and explains the new GoPro Wi-Fi BacPac + Wi-Fi Remote Combo Kit that will be available in March / April for the new GoPro HDHero2. ElectricTV grabbed Rick for a quick run through of the GoPro HDHero2 premium accessories at CES2012. Audio is dodgy but stick with it.
Thanks to ElectricTV for the video:
Wi-Fi-enable your HD HERO2 or original HD HERO camera with the Wi-Fi BacPac™ and Wi-Fi Remote.
The Wi-Fi BacPac attaches to your HD HERO2 camera to enable long range video remote control via the Wi-Fi Remote or a smartphone, tablet, or computer running a free GoPro App. Waterproof and durable, the Wi-Fi Remote enables complete control of up to 50 HD HERO2 cameras at a time.
When paired with the Wi-Fi BacPac, the HD HERO2 also supports live video streaming and remote control via smart-devices, computers and the Web wherever Wi-Fi or a mobile hotspot is present. Record one video stream to your HD HERO2′s SD card while sending a second video stream via Wi-Fi to your smart-device, computer or the Web.
The original HD HERO is also compatible with the Wi-Fi BacPac and Wi-Fi Remote with support for remote control functions only. Video streaming is not available on the original HD HERO camera.
