There are numerous possible uses for Swivl including:

Telepresence. The new Swivl is a beautiful and inexpensive telepresence solution. You can use it at home or at work with mobile devices and services you use today. With our tracking controls, wireless microphone and built in speakers, you can enhance any existing video chat application like Skype or Facetime. Or with our upcoming video chat application, the new Swivl can be controlled remotely for two way interaction conversations.

Photography. For DSLR, the Swivl is a sophisticated motion controlled tripod head. It can only be compared to expensive solutions used by professional photographers for wild life and action shots. It also makes your iPad a wireless command and control center for all your still and video needs. With our Swivl DSLR control app you can set up multi-view shots with remote preview, frame the shot, adjust settings (ISO, exposure, etc) and fire the trigger. You can also use it for panorama or moving timelapse, or just to stabilize your camera for long exposure shots.

Presentation capture. The new Swivl is the ideal tool to capture lectures and presentations and broadcast them. You can turn any office or classroom into a connected workspace with great video and audio capture. Now that the Swivl supports iPad (or other tablets), you can use it to capture yourself or displaying the presentation as a teleprompter.

And more. The new Swivl is ideal for capturing everyday experiences, at home, work or school. Use it for event photography like weddings where the Swivl can serve as an additional cameraman. Or use it to have remote family join events when they can't come in person. The options are limitless. The new Swivl is portable and easy to bring with you anywhere.
