- Kinomap Geolocated Videoplayer Now Integrated Into Facebook
Kinomap, the only video-sharing platform in the world to offer
synchronized video-map playback, is announcing the integration of its
geolocated videoplayer into Facebook. With a single click of the famous
"like" button in the video description on www.kinomap.com, users can
post a thumbnail of the film on their Facebook wall that will then display
playback synchronizing the images and their location on a satellite map.
"Facebook is the premier platform for sharing. With the explosion of
smartphones equipped with cameras, video has naturally become a way to
illustrate those moments of life we share with friends," explains Laurent
Desmons, the founder of Kinomap. "The GPS function integrated into iPhones,
Android smartphones, and some camcorders lets users enhance their videos by
adding their location to a map, as well as data on the filming conditions.
You can now make a video with Kinomap Maker, upload it and share videos with
your friends - all with a device that fits in the palm of your hand. The only
thing you need is an Internet connection!"
Friends on Facebook can view posted videos and follow along easily, just
by clicking on the speed/altitude curve, the route on the map or the video
time bar. The data is synchronized by the GPS sensor, which records the
camera's position every second and makes a note of the speed and altitude.
Other sensors are available on the market to include other measurements, such
as the pollution level, G force, radioactivity, atmospheric pressure,
humidity, temperature, wind speed or heart rate, and Kinomap integrates them.
Designed to add a space and time dimension to users' films, Kinomap Maker
takes Internet video to a new level: users can share special moments with
friends and show not only what they did but also where they did it and under
There are many applications, including:
- Filming sports activities
- Giving directions to a specific place
- Sharing a hiking itinerary
- Being a street journalist by filming an event that will be geolocated
and dated: I was there and I can prove it!
