PetChatz Enhances Video Quality of Its Two-Way Interactive Pet Camera
PetChatz, a pet technology company, has released PetChatz HDX, the third-generation of the company’s Greet & Treat videophone that allows pet owners to check in with their pets via smartphones, tablets or PCs.
The PetChatz HDX delivers better video quality in low-light environments and a wider camera angle to give pet owners a better view of their pets, according to company officials. In addition, PetChatz HDX features 1080p streaming and Wi-Fi connectivity that works on both 2.4 and 5G networks, officials noted.
“Our latest technology enhancements continue to raise the bar for two-way videophone systems—just in time for the busy holiday shopping season,” said Lisa Lavin, founder and CEO of PetChatz, which is based in Burnsville, Minn. “The PetChatz HDX is the perfect gift for tech-savvy pet owners who want a clear, consistent, reliable connection to their furry friends any time, any place.”
High-tech pet products continue to grow in popularity, according to PetChatz officials. In 2018, U.S. pet owners spent $72 billion on their pets, with $565 million of that going to tech-based products, officials said. Online sales, which are projected to account for 26 percent of pet product sales by 2023, are contributing to this growth, officials added.
“For pet product retailers, this represents an opportunity to connect with tech-savvy consumers who want the latest-and-greatest products and who are passionate about giving their furry friends the best,” officials said.
In addition to two-way video chats, PetChatz allows pet owners to dispense treats, provide calming aromatherapy, play “Brain Games” with the PawCall accessory, stream DOGTV and record/share videos, according to officials.
