The Sony XDCAM pocket app turns your smartphone (iPhone, Android) or iPad into a cloud-ready XDCAM camcorder that can record or stream video content in very high quality. The app is very easy to use. Video can be streamed live in full HD and HEVC or recorded on the internal hard disk and then transferred by FTP to your production server.
The app adds professional video camera functionalities to your device: zoom function, automatic or manual focus, exposure control, white balance, on camera light switching, image stabiliser etc. You can switch between front or rear camera, add external audio and monitor audio levels, etc. Managing the recorded clips and reviewing them is easy via a media browser where you can also add notes to the clips. Clips can be uploaded via XDCAM air, Sony’s cloud-based workflow service that integrates local and remote production. To use XDCAM air you need to create your own XDCAM air account on XDCAM air service. The app itself is free (iOS and Android) but there are certain conditions to get access to the XDCAM air service.
