ASU’s new Ecliptus is a digital intensified night vision system coupling an ultra-high definition (4X HD) GoPro® Hero 4 camera to a high performance Generation III image intensifier. This is the only night vision system that images extremely low light scenes (overcast starlight) in HD formats, captures these images via many hours of internal recording storage (≈ 9 hours HD video), and is able to real time share these images/videos through wireless communication (WiFi) to other digital networks or portable cloud computing devices. Ecliptus includes a near-IR illuminator, which is invisible to the human eye, which extends your ability to image and record in extreme low-light conditions. This system can be applied to any commercial application requiring ultra high definition imaging, capture, and sharing of real time streaming video of night vision scenes.
Disclaimer: Due to the military grade image intensification, ECLIPTUS is only available for sale in the United States and only to US persons.
ECLIPTUS IN REAL LIFE!
UNLIKE ANYTHING YOU’VE SEEN BEFORE!
WHY YOU NEED ECLIPTUS
GoPro® has changed the manner in which we capture and share our experiences. Ecliptus leverages all of the capability of the GoPro® Hero 4, combined with battle-proven Generation III image intensifier night vision technology, and empowers people, businesses and government agencies to image, record and share their nighttime experiences in a cool, compact and affordable way.
COMBINES TWO PROVEN TECHNOLOGIES: GOPRO® HERO 4 + US MILITARY GRADE GENERATION III NIGHT VISION
The applications for Ecliptus are varied and many. From sporting, to science, to security, to media — anywhere the imagination or need may lead — GoPro® users are now able to share their experiences at night.
Have you ever wanted to record or monitor your precious little infant at night without waking her? What about those teenagers who sneak out at night? Is protection of personal property from predators important to you?
How about those night time hikes through the country side? Have you ever considered recording natural wildlife, a party on the beach or a moon-lit waterfall?
So you are a night time paint baller. Now you can network your image in real time with friendly players and gain the tactical advantage.
What about all of you who are looking for Big Foot in Oklahoma or Sasquatch in Washington State?
For you hog hunters down South, Ecliptus can enhance your experience and improve your harvest.
And the list goes on, as imagination and Ecliptus empower you to own the night.
Finally, there are other “night vision” cameras on the market but they are either bulky and difficult to operate, very expensive for equivalent military grade quality, or very poor quality at a very cheap price point. We are supplying an affordable and easy to operate product that is compact, lightweight and durable, and at a quality that the best militaries in the world would use. That is exactly what we have done with Ecliptus. Ecliptus has lower Size, Weight, and Power (SWaP) performance and at a lower cost than all other comparable solutions on the market.
WORKS WITH ANDROID AND iOS
Compatible with multiple IOS smart devices (example iPhone and iPad) and Android devices (Samsung Galaxy S6 and Tab 4).
EASY TO OPERATE
Ecliptus is purpose built for ease of operation and robustness. Ergonomically designed controls make the unit easy to operate in the dark. The unit is adjusted and operated completely by hand. No special tooling required. If you can point and shoot, you can use Ecliptus.
At only 4” in length, Ecliptus is easy to handle and can be taken wherever you want to go. It stores neatly in a small camera case and takes up very little room. Comparable solutions are much larger and awkward to handle, in this instance “bigger is NOT better!”
UNIVERSAL GOPRO® MOUNT-ABILITY
Ecliptus is designed to easily attach to any standard quarter 20 mounting solution (i.e. tripod, dash cam, handle bars, etc.) Wherever your night leads, Ecliptus can be there to photograph, record and share your experiences!
Weighing in at a meager 13.7 ounces including batteries, Ecliptus as at least half the weight of comparable systems.
RUGGED, WEATHERTIGHT, ERGONOMIC DESIGN
Ecliptus is built with the highest quality American-made materials to provide comfortable, maintenance-free enjoyment. With its small size, light weight, and high performance imagery capabilities, Ecliptus allows for maximum usage without arm fatigue.
