– Sleeker and Slimmer Product Design Combined With Improved Image Quality due to the Integrated Image Stabilisation and Higher Frame Rate
LONDON, September 20, 2010 — Cisco today announced its new range of Flip UltraHD(TM) and Flip MinoHD(TM) shoot and share camcorders with signature Flip Video simplicity. The new models feature new design, enhanced HD video quality and more ways to share using pre-loaded FlipShare(TM) software.
Gareth Jones, UK Ireland Region Manager for Flip Video at Cisco said:
“Our new Flips feature improved HD video quality so that everyone can shoot, share and connect easily and in better definition than ever before. And we haven’t lost sight of why Flip Video is such a success; the new range features the usual excellent sleek simplicity and great user experience we are known for.”
The new Flip Video products are now equipped with image stabilisation and 720p resolution at 50 frames per second allowing consumers to capture best-ever clear and steady video. Flip users can count on high quality HD video no matter how they choose to view or share it – on a computer, their HDTV using the integrated HDMI connection or using the popular direct uploads to social media sites.
The new products come pre-loaded with a new version of FlipShare, the proprietary software works on both Windows and Mac computers allowing Flip owners to easily organise, create and share their videos. Next to the private sharing by e-mail functionality FlipShare now also offers Facebook, Twitter and YouTube sharing functionality. FlipShare now also features improved functionality to take digital still images from video and comes with a Magic Movie button helping consumers to make fun compilation movies of multiple video clips.
In addition to improved video quality and built-in image stabilisation, the new Flip UltraHD showcases a new slimmer design that fits easily in any pocket or purse. The camcorder is 25% slimmer and uses standard AAA batteries or a rechargeable battery pack which comes with the product as standard.
The new Flip MinoHD one hour and two hour camcorders are small, sleek and stylish with more power and enhanced HD video quality. Just like the new UltraHD, the new MinoHD camcorders now feature built-in image stabilisation and improved video quality so that users can capture incredibly clear and steady video all the time.
The Flip MinoHD one hour comes in silver and has a MSRP of GBP149.99, the Flip MinoHD two hour comes in black with a MSRP of GBP179.99, and the Flip UltraHD two hour also comes in black with a MSRP of GBP179.99.
The new Flip products are available to preorder from Amazon, Firebox and Play.com from 21 September and to buy online and in-store in these and Currys Digital, John Lewis, Argos, Micro Anvika and other leading stores starting from November this year.
