Available in August direct from SiOnyx at at a retail price
of $799, Aurora is based on the SiOnyx Ultra Low Light technology that
is protected by more than 40 patents and until now was only available in
the highest-end night vision optics costing tens of thousands of
dollars. This identical technology has now been cost-reduced for use in
Aurora and other upcoming devices from SiOnyx and its partners.

SiOnyx has developed a new semiconductor process that dramatically
enhances the infrared sensitivity of silicon-based imaging. Its ultra
low-light technology enables richly-defined color images and video
during the day and twilight, combined with unmatched high-resolution
viewing in near total darkness. Sample videos as well as images may be
found at

Through the free companion apps on iOS™ and Android®, you can review
your experiences in real-time or control the Aurora directly from your
phone. Designed for an active outdoor lifestyle, Aurora is also fully
certified with an IP67 waterproof rating.

Aurora offers transformative night video for a wide range of uses
including boating, hunting, fishing, nature watching, emergency response
and other activities where clear night-vision is of importance. A
removable neck strap allows you to keep it accessible on any adventure.
Aurora uses GPS combined with an accelerometer and compass to accurately
guide your way, day or night.

"Outdoor enthusiasts play day and night; capturing those adventures
doesn't need to stop when the sun goes down," said Stephen Saylor,
President and CEO of SiOnyx. "Aurora's unique Ultra Low Light technology
enables night video that people will swear was taken in full daylight."
