V.I.O. Announces Professional Filmmaker & Athlete Team

Top Filmmakers and Athletes Choose the POV.HD Camera System

Marquette, MI (September 13, 2011) – V.I.O., the decade-long leader in wearable video technology, is proud to announce the company’s first-ever sponsored team. Comprised of a hand-selected list of top filmmakers and athletes, the new team will use V.I.O.’s award-winning POV.HD video system to collect and produce stunning video across multiple sports and genres.

The V.I.O. Team consists of top filmmakers and athletes that push the boundaries in their respective fields creatively as well as technically. “We looked for people producing very beautiful stuff that you don’t see every day. These filmmakers and athletes really stand for what V.I.O. is all about: technical perfection, beauty and creativity,” said V.I.O. Marketing Director Clint Slack, “We have athletes like Sage Cattabriga-Alosa & Xavier De Le Rue who use their athleticism to turn themselves into extreme cameramen. We also have filmmakers like Philip Bloom and Renan Ozturk who achieve incredible results by applying years of camera experience toward new technologies like the POV.HD.”

Renan Ozturk, professional North Face athlete as well as co-founder of Camp 4 Productions, said of working with the POV.HD camera: “If I want to actually look at the frame and not botch the shot, V.I.O.’s POV.HD is mandatory equipment. Some moments can not be recreated and with the POV.HD I know I’m always getting the best quality video and frame composition.”
