Since it first opened its gates in 1986, CeBIT in Hannover – the world’s largest trade fair for information technology – has undergone some quite profound changes and always kept pace with market developments. Today, CeBIT is the world’s leading event covering the digitalization of business and society, where visitors come to discover the latest trends related to the Internet of Things, Big Data, Cloud computing, and more. There’ll be no shortage of amazing technical gadgets in 2016 either – and most can be found at Planet Reseller, the world’s most important showcase for resellers of IT. Besides a range of innovative software concepts, big-selling IT accessories, business storage and mobile computing solutions, media and conference technology, displays and components, it’s also the place to go for the latest hardware to feed our insatiable appetite for games. One such gadget is from German company Pearl, one of the largest online suppliers of technological innovations.
Pearl is clearly aiming to entice potential GoPro customers its way with the Somikon DV-4017 4K actioncam – and its specs, not to mention identical dimensions, certainly give the market leader a run for its money. Users can choose between ultra-sharp videos in UHD resolution at 24 fps, VGA quality at 240 fps for smooth slow-motion pictures, and the camera’s time-lapse feature. The DV-4017 also takes 16 MP photos. The dust- and waterproof protective casing (supplied as standard) can be used for underwater shots up to 30 meters deep, and its mounting kit (also included) ensures the camera can be easily attached to handlebars, helmets or belts and used in all sorts of conditions. A tablet, smartphone or notebook can be linked via WiFi as a wireless control monitor, and the integrated motion sensor can be used to automatically trigger filming if required. Its high-quality, 170-degree wide-angle lens has glass lens elements with seven-layer coating technology. Anyone wishing to add to the standard equipment can choose from the three expansive accessory sets that Pearl offers to extend the range of uses for the DV-4017.
