GoPro hooked up with Vislink to provide a professional grade, live, HD wireless broadcast solution for its GoPro HERO4 cameras.

Yesterday, we told you about Apple's patent to make GoPro like wearable action cameras. GoPro shares plunged after Apple granted this patent as there were rumors that Apple will make its own wearable action cams that are expected to be much better than GoPro. But today, GoPro fought back by announcing a all-new and amazing service for its GoPro HERO4 cameras. GoPro Live is the right answer to Apple.

Live wireless HD video transmission was arranged thanks to a partnership between GoPro and Vislink. The tiniest, most featherweight and least energy-consuming transmitter got made by the companies on a joint basis.

GoPro happens to be the maker of some of the most interactive and amazing stuff on the face of the planet. As for Vislink, it is a leading edge world-renowned high tech provider. It is adept in the collation, handling and transmission of of video and info on film.

The bond between GoPro and Vislink will go a long way towards the provision of a facility of HD live transmission. The twin companies have collaborated on producing a transmitter that is so diminutive that it may be worn in the smallest nooks, crannies and crevices.

Thus live sports events and other occasions may be caught with high fidelity by this device. This baby will be showcased during the Winter X Games 2015 in Aspen and at the AMA Monster Energy Supercross event.

GoPro cameras have been previously employed in sporting events as athlete-affixed devices and put on equipment as well. But up until now the whole filming process has been a jerky and haphazard procedure. Now however all that is about to  change for the better.

The new device will allow high definition shots and video clips of the event that can then be integrated into television content. GoPro is all set to change the game as far as audience viewership is concerned.

Now sports events can be seen live as they happen on an interactive basis instead as a mere spectator. The crowd of sports fans will feel like they are actually right there engaged in the sporting activity instead of being merely people who watch the scenes from the stands.

This of course opens up fresh and new vistas of exploration and excitement the likes of which have never been seen before. From now onwards such famous events as the Olympics, MotoGP, WRC World Rally Championship, Formula-E and America’s Cup will get covered from every angle in an immersive manner.

It will make the sports freaks ten times more lively in their manner of cheering on the home team and the way sports will be enjoyed will simply never be the same again. That is the magic of GoPro and Vislink working in tandem to provide the best to the rest.

"GoPro has changed the way people see the world, creating an immersive viewing experience. Now with unique GoPro perspectives available to broadcasters, watching live events is like being part of the action instead of watching it from the stands.  Our partnership with Vislink brings a new level of excitement to live broadcast and we can't wait to see what players, broadcasters and fans do with this new innovative solution."
