Campbell, California — February 10, 2005 — Octave Systems, Inc. a leading technology innovator, presents the Multipod, the first and only USB device to wrap the five most popular digital tasks into one small package.
The Multipod is a digital camera, web camera, video camera, audio recorder and 128MB portable storage device. It does all of this in a three-quarter ounce shell case that’s the size of a lipstick case.
As small as the Multipod is, it’s packed with the technology to capture up to 12 minutes of video with sound. Users can record presentations, video clips for websites, and those all-important birthday parties. And beyond that, its extremely small size lets users take the Multipod to extremes: hang it on a kite string, attach it to a ski jacket, a radio-controlled model plane or even take it sky-diving for videos that will be beyond breathtaking.
Up to 3000, full color still photos at 320×240 or 750 full color still photos at 640×480 are one button away with the Multipod. As with any quality digital camera, users can store photos on the Multipod 5-in-1. Then they can use the Multipod’s USB connection to upload the photos right onto on a computer for storage or making prints.
With a storage capacity of up to 128MB, the Multipod 5-in-1 is the perfect portable storage device. Users can take documents, photos, spreadsheets even presentations wherever they go. Data can be easily and rapidly transferred to a PC with the Multipod’s USB connection.
The Multipod 5-in-1 is a plug-n-play video-conferencing device that’s perfect for the web. Connect with telecommuting employees or make presentations to staff and clients anywhere in the world. It’s as easy as U-S-B. The Multipod 5-in-1 is also seamlessly compatible with popular IM programs such as AIM, MSN and Yahoo. Simply plug the Multipod 5-in-1 into the included USB flexi-cable that functions as an adjustable web camera stand.
The Multipod’s 8 kHz digital voice recording system accommodates hours of dictation for everything from presentations to spur-of-the-moment brainstorms, shopping lists, and more.
The Multipod 5-in-1 can be the “road warrior’s” best friend. It does everything that would normally require separate, heavy and bulky video cameras, voice recorders, still cameras, video conferencing web cams, and portable hard drives. The Multipod is not intended as a replacement for all these products but it is an extremely convenient alternative capable of performing all five of those functions. And doing it all in a package that’s a mere 3 3/8″ (87mm) long, 15/16″ inches (23mm) wide, and 7/8″ inches (19mm) deep, and weighs in at 0.85 oz (24 grams). With dimensions that small and capabilities so large, no pocket, purse, briefcase or backpack should be without one.
The Multipod has an MSRP of $149.99 and is currently available. Order yours at http://www.octave.com/multipod
