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:

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!

I’m on Twit Bits with Leo Laporte showing my iPhone 6 Plus clones

Here’s 21minutes showing my iPhone 6 Plus clones to Leo Laporte at the Twit Brick House just before the This Week in Tech Podcast.

iPhone 6 Plus Android clone for $111

Posted by – November 16, 2014

For sale all over China right now below $111 (680RMB), the iPhone 6 Plus clone runs on a MediaTek MT6582 Quad-core ARM Cortex-A7 with Mali-400 GPU, 1GB RAM and 8GB Flash. Here’s the special unveiling at Apple Headquarters. It’s literally 10 times cheaper than the official iPhone 6 Plus selling at about $1100 in China, is it 10 times worse? I don’t think so. Antutu rates it at 17829 which is about the same performance as a Nexus 4 which is also probably about the same as an iPhone 5 in terms of performance. If I receive at least 100 comments and re-shares on Google+ of this video, I may consider doing a bend test on it to see if it is better designed than the real one.
