See how new GPS and PlayMemories Home add to shooting fun.
Action Cam makes viewing and sharing easier and more exciting with new GPS and new features of PlayMemories Home — such as Map View, GPS Data Overlay on Video, Movie Rotation and Multi View Video Merge. PlayMemories Home is available at “PlayMemories Home ver. 3.0.”
Map View reads location information recorded in a file by built-in GPS and plots a trail of your course. In video use, images of the starting point and course route are displayed. In still image use, images and points of shooting locations are displayed.
GPS Data Overlay on Video
GPS Data Overlay on Video reads your speed data recorded by built-in GPS and generates another video file that displays speed information, etc. You can upload the video file with speed information on the Internet and share your experience with many viewers.
Multi View Video Merge
Multi View Video Merge generates one video file by combining two videos that were taken with different cameras. By uploading the multi-view file on the Internet, you can share the fun of four-screen playback with many viewers. Combination of three footage segments and four footage segments using Video Merge is supported by PlayMemories Home ver. 3.1.10 (for Windows) / 1.1.10 (for Mac) or later, (Spring 2014).
After a video is shot, Movie Rotation turns it clockwise or counterclockwise every 90°. This is helpful if the video was taken from left-to-right in reverse or upside down, or when you want to enjoy it in portrait orientation.
