There are dozens of VHS tapes documenting my childhood and now cell phones have put a camcorder in our pockets.
There is one thing, however, that seems to always ruin my movie making magic. That annoying "storage full"alert that always seems to pop up when you are trying to capture an extra special moment will be come a thing of a past.
A newly launched app is aiming to become your new age family camcorder that captures unlimited Ultra HD video on your phone. Introducing the Air app, the new family camcorder. Read on for a break down of features.
Capture and Sync
Air enables unlimited mobile video capture. Recorded clips are never compressed and every video is automatically stored in a private cloud library. Local copies are then removed from your phone so you’ll never fill up device storage while recording.
You can access your video library on any connected device. Log in online through your tablet or computer or swipe through your video gallery at any time within the app.
Air’s advanced video tech optimizes playback on your bandwidth. Adaptive streaming balances based on the quality of your internet connection so you’ll never wait for a video to load.
With instant links you can share hours of video in seconds and never worry about quality loss or compression. There’s no file size limit on Air so your videos will never look grainy.
Combine clips together to form a modern home movie or “reel.” These continuous video albums can be created privately or collaborative with others to capture every perspective.
Upload the Old
Air’s previously funded Kickstarter focused on digitizing home movies. Today the app can import old clips from your camera roll or users can transfer in video from their hard drives, film reels, VHS tapes, and DVDs. On Air your family memories won’t disappear on old devices or in the attic.
Air was designed to give personal video a home — to help people capture, store, and relive their cherished memories. "Working with video poses many unique and difficult challenges," Air's founders Tyler Strand explains. "Our powerful smartphones can record in 4K Ultra HD, but these files quickly grow too large to store or transfer. Our email and messaging apps restrict and compress files, making sharing HD videos near impossible. Our social apps train us to record bite-sized highlights, but they miss the authentic, personal moments that aren’t always meant to be shared. Our oldest memories collect dust in the attic, stuck on forgotten devices or outdated formats we can no longer play."
Air is available today for download in the App store. The first 30 minutes are free, and after that it’s one flat price ($4.99/month) no matter how many times you hit record.
