The Ambarella, Inc., which is a leading developer of the low-power, HD video compression and also image processing semiconductors, has recently announced that it is going to explore with Google on a new class of wearable cameras for the Helpouts application and its services.

The two companies are going to jointly demonstrate the smart wearable camera reference design during the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, starting from January 7- January 10th.

The Helpouts is a new way to share someone’s knowledge and his expertise over a live video. It is easy to use and it also incorporates the scheduling facility and payments to allow the instructors to monetize the services also.

The Ambarella-based wearable smart cameras with the Helpouts service is going to enable instructors to see a live video from the trainee’s perspective, or to the vice versa of that, supporting an interactive teaching of art, sports, fitness, cooking, about engineering, or any other hands-on activity which can help.

The Ambarella’s new reference design also enables a small form factor wearable camera that will allow its users the complete mobility during a Helpouts session. The camera can also record full HD videos while it is simultaneously streaming a live video wirelessly to the Google Helpouts server via the smart phone service or a WiFi access point. By utilizing Ambarella’s A7LW camera SoC, the smart camera can easily stabilize videos, even when the users are in a motion. It also provides an excellent image quality in the low light conditions, where its low power operation always enables a long battery life.
