PIXIO: World’s first auto follow camera system to film indoor and outdoor

Posted by – January 23, 2015

PIXIO is the first of its kind Auto Follow Cam to automatically track, film and zoom. Let’s say that you need to prepare a new video for your blog, moving around your studio, but no one to film you? You skate all day long and you want to have a better view than from your action-cam wide angle? Or maybe you train for next tennis championship and need to check your backhand on a video ? What if you had your own automated personal cameraman?
Developed by Move ‘N See, PIXIO is a radar-guided motorized mount for your DSLR, Camcorder, or any device that locks onto a companion wristband. The radar technology has the enormous advantage over GPS that it can track you inside and not only outside. It can even zoom in and out automatically, adjusting the frame to the distance through a "multi", "LANC", or "A/V R" cable going from PIXIO to your device. It can film 3 hours on the battery! Even churches can use it for their ceremonies! The crowdfunding campain is starting for $449 here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/world-s-first-indoor-outdoor-auto-follow-cam

superMHL 8K 120fps, USB Type-C, 40W, more bandwidth

Posted by – January 20, 2015

The MHL Consortium has outdone itself with their latest technology mega specification, now perhaps setting the spec at a very future proof level (shall we say at least until 2020?), supporting up to 8K at 120fps, with up to 40W for power charge, delivering higher resolution, faster frame rates, support for the upcoming USB Type-C (dual side reversible) connector for up to 8K 60fps output from a phone (wow wow!). For the first time, MHL also introduces a new superMHL connector for 8K TVs (as in the first 8K TV from Samsung shown at CES). The SuperMHL spec is for mobile devices, set-top boxes (STBs), Blu-ray players, Audio/video recorders, HDMI sticks and other source devices to TVs and monitors, as SuperMHL should be included in most future FHD/4K/8K TVs, PC Monitors, MHL has shipped in over 750 Million devices thus far. The new SuperMHL spec is also offering wider color gamut, deeper colors (to reduce color banding), high dynamic range (HDR) supported through signaling and through higher bandwidth.

Marrakech 4K Galaxy Note 4 samples, Spices, Market, Festival, Taxi and Streets

Posted by – December 17, 2014

Here are some video samples filmed in 4K using the Galaxy Note 4 Powered by MHL 3 in Marrakech Morroco, showing Spices, the Kasbah Market, the Marrakech Film Festival and walking around the streets of Marrakech. I also posted a couple of videos filmed on a Camel ride. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 records video in 4K at 50mbitps in 30fps, which can be output to a 4K TV using MHL 3, this is how it looks on YouTube in 4K:







Charbax on Camel in Marrakech Desert

Posted by – December 10, 2014

I take the Camel across the desert outside of Marrakech Morocco, here are two video samples filmed in 4K using the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Powered by MHL 3

4K sample filmed with Samsung Galaxy Note 4 outputting 4K using MHL 3

Posted by – December 4, 2014

This video was filmed using the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 that records 4K video, this is the built-in 4K encode at 50mbitps, using the built-in microphone. Perhaps there is some good Bluetooth Microphone system that could be used for lapel-microphone and for handheld microphone, perhaps also a good shotgun microphone. Let me know in the comments if you know any good of these that could be used with 4K smartphones to record highest quality audio. I also would like to upgrade my camera on the steadicam to 4K, I like the idea of perhaps trying out the Samsung NX1 that can encode 4K in H265 at 40mbitps, or perhaps I'll wait for some other high performance 4K H265 camera, the idea being for the 4K footage to be compressed well enough in the camera so that the videos can be uploaded to YouTube directly. It seems though that http://youtube.com/editor doesn't support 4K rendering yet (meaning that when someone tries to join/split 4K videos with YouTube editor, it outputs only a 1080p maximum file? Can someone please report this to Google? Otherwise perhaps there would be a camera to offer native 4K H265 in-camera basic join/split editing, perhaps even also with support to automatically add intros, outros, overlay transparent watermark branding (even animated watermark branding). Dual SD card recording for backup (when SD cards break, which has happened too often for me).

650 million MHL devices shipped. MHL 3 delivers 4K to tens of millions of consumers

Posted by – December 1, 2014

More than 650 million MHL products have shipped worldwide since the first MHL products were released in 2011 (as I filmed my first MHL video in 2011). The global MHL ecosystem includes adapters, automotive accessories, A/V receivers, Blu-ray Disc players, cables, DTVs, monitors, projectors, smartphones, streaming media sticks, tablets and more. A steady stream of MHL 3.0 mobile devices that output 4K Ultra HD video have been released this year, including the Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Sony Xperia Z2 and Z3, and ZTE nubia Z7, along with MHL 3.0 4K Ultra HD displays from Samsung and Sony. 4K is rapidly growing in popularity and, with these MHL 3.0 smartphones, consumers can capture brilliant photos and videos and then enjoy them in full 4K Ultra HD quality on their new big screen 4K TV. In part thanks to MHL and thanks to the newest ARM Processors from Qualcomm and others, already now there are tens of millions of consumers with 4K Camcorders and 4K video players directly within their smartphone in their pocket!
