FOUNTAIN VALLEY, CALIFORNIA and VENICE BEACH, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwired - Sept. 24, 2015) -
Editors note: There is a video and two images associated with this press release.
Hang w/, the live-streaming social media innovator and subsidiary of MEDL Mobile Holdings ("MEDL") (OTCQB:MEDL), announces that Hang w/ will collaborate with TRACE Live Network to embed Hang w/ live-streaming into its revolutionary "auto-follow" drones. Consumers who purchase TRACE devices will be able to broadcast live directly to the Hang w/ platform - right out of the box.
The Hang w/ app connects people through interactive live-streaming video, allowing anyone with an iPhone, iPad, Android device or desktop computer to broadcast live to a potential audience of millions of viewers around the globe. In early 2016, that list will include a number of TRACE drones and devices powered by the visually intelligent SmartCamera, the TRACEr which clicks in and out of each different device.
The TRACE FLYr (auto-follow drone), designed for aerial video capture, will autonomously track and record its user in action - based on their unique visual signature.
TRACE's FOLLOWr (360 degree rotating tripod gimbal) will allow a Hang w/ user to set up the device in a central location and have all of their individual action followed, recorded and live-streamed.
Other TRACE auto-follow devices in development include a rugged ATV style car for ground-based capture as well as a submersible for underwater video creation.
"The uses for this technological mashup are astounding," said Andrew Maltin, Hang w/ CEO. "From surfers to hikers to soccer players to parents who want to keep an eye on their kids in the backyard - we are ushering in a new age of live-streaming connectivity and I know our users are going to love it."
"TRACE is positioning to take live-streamed content creation to an entirely new level through allowing users to be fully in the moment as their action is captured and live-streamed completely autonomously," said Cameron Chell, Co-founder of TRACE. "We chose Hang w/ as one of our partners because of their powerful live broadcasting tools and extensive network of users who will now be able to Hang with each other in a whole new way. "
The companies plan to integrate Hang w/ connectivity into the TRACE technology; to feature TRACE captured footage prominently on the Hang w/ platform; and to collaborate for the purposes of product innovation; marketing; and business development.
