What are the advantages Qlippie Live vs. Smartphone?
Clip-and-go design, Qlippie Live is hands free
# Qlippie Live is a dedicated device for video & photo, and sharing
# Qlippie live can live stream to various social media. It is hardware live streaming.
You can live stream to a selected group or to the mass audience.
Smartphone live streaming; also receivers need to install the same live streaming app and only can make use of one single platform. Other solutions in the market; you need to buy expensive supporter equipment.
# Qlippie Live is small and light in weight; Qlippie has auto-interval shooting. Most smart phones don’t have time-lapse or slow motion. And iPhone 5 or higher, you can’t set the speed for time-lapse
# When you shoot a time-lapse with Qlippie Live you can still make normal use of your phone to call or to play Pokemon Go 😉
# During recording you do not need to hold Qlippie Live all the time. Just simply Clip it on your shirt or other.
# Underwater; it is very convenient to make usage of Qlippie Live.
Does Qlippie Live offer 4K?
No, we offer HD; 720p and 1080p. Why?
# Main TV, computer, LCD screens, monitors are below 4K. So if 4K it means you will need to buy extra 4K display equipment if you make usage of 4K camera. Otherwise you can not see the details.
# Main TV channels are using 720p, some use 1080p; main movies on the internet are using 1080p.
# 4K TV which can play 4K videos from internet requires at least 25Mbps bandwidth. It will eat 675GB data if plays a 4K HDR video as per third party estimation.
# 4K video requires big volume storage. 1TB Hard Disk can just save several movies
# Qlippie Live is a daily camera; which is easy to use; 4K makes things complex and less user friendly. At the same time you will need to buy expensive equipment to store, watch and to make proper usage of your content.
# Bare in mind that a big part of cheaper 4K camera’s in real life are not really supporting 4K.
