PARIS, May 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 http://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 what conditions.
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!
