GoPro Wi-Fi BacPac + Remote Kit
One of the most anticipated accessories to be released in early 2012, the GoPro Wi-Fi BacPac + Remote kit is bound to be a popular accessory for anyone with an HD Hero 2 camera! It will be even more popular to those with more than one.
With this new GoPro remote, you can now Wi-Fi-enable your HD HERO2 or original HD HERO camera with the Wi-Fi BacPac and Wi-Fi Remote.
The Wi-Fi BacPac will attach to your GoPro HD Hero 2 camera via the expansion port on the back to enable long range video remote control via the Wi-Fi Remote or even a smartphone, tablet, or computer running a free, downloadable GoPro Application.
The Wi-Fi Remote kit will be waterproof and very durable. This will be very helpful to those who make huge productions with multiple GoPro Cameras … calling Ken Block!
When paired with the Wi-Fi BacPac, the HD Hero 2 will also be able to support live video streaming and remote control via smart-devices, computers and the internet wherever Wi-Fi or a mobile hotspot is available. This means you can record one video stream to your Hero 2′s SD card while sending a second video stream via Wi-Fi to your smart-device, computer or the internet!
GoPro has also announced that the Original HD Hero will also be compatible with the Wi-Fi BacPac and Wi-Fi Remote with support for remote control functions only. Video streaming will not be available on the original HD Hero camera. We think the Wi-Fi BacPac will be a very popular add-on for current GoPro owners.
