Wildgame Innovations Raises The Bar With the Encounter XT Cell Camera

No one earns Alpha Hunter status with a "wait and hope" strategy. Today's savvy and avid hunters push hard and wring out every advantage technology can provide to one-up the Big One.

Sometimes, though, the technological link is sketchy. That's where the new Encounter XT cell camera from Wildgame Innovations comes into play.

The Encounter XT is a dual-network cellular camera that runs like a tag team wrestling match. With its pre-installed SIM cards for both AT&T and Verizon carriers, the Encounter XT incorporates an auto-detect feature that identifies the strongest cell signal in your location once every day, and switches to that carrier for uninterrupted communication performance. The Encounter XT is compatible with the Huntsmart App so you can always be in contact with the camera anywhere, any time. If one carrier's signal is weaker that day, the Encounter XT will simply switch to the other, stronger carrier signal so you never skip a beat.

This ability to maintain the strongest signal connection perfectly complements the Encounter XT's ON DEMAND photo and video capture feature. Want to know what's happening at your stand right now? Just open the Huntsmart App and send a command to take a picture or video. ON DEMAND is also a great way to see what is in your area and to prevent blowing out game as you approach your stand for a morning or evening hunt.

In addition to the dual network capabilities, the Encounter XT offers the kind of top-end performance you need for comprehensive hunt site monitoring, such as an 80-foot flash and detection range, a trigger speed of under half a second, 1-3 photo burst capability, high-resolution 34MP still imaging, and 720P HD video capture with audio recording.

Cellular camera technology has delivered the kind of near-real-time wildlife monitoring capabilities our grandfathers could never have imagined, so don't let an iffy cell signal throw off your game. Tap into the dual-network power and reliability of the new Encounter XT.
