When the son of music legend Sting, Joe Sumner saw many people recording a show with their phones when they are at concerts, an idea occured to him. Although the music event is being recorded by many fans throughout the arena, there is no way to bring all these footage together and make one multi-view-point movie. He then teamed up with David King Lassman to create Vyclone, an iOS app that lets people record videos and contribute them into one single movie with a lot of angles. Vyclone allows users to make and edit a movie that is made up of these videos collected from many cameras that were recording at different angels. This app can be used in any event, birthdays, boxing matches, and other various events that people can record from different positions.
The app is pretty simple to use, a user will record a one minute video of an event then, Vyclone will look for other people that are recording the same event and will help you connect and share the videos with them. The app will take both of these one minute clips and share them between the two of you and then you will be able to create a small movie with a single audio track that will have different angle shots. The app also has an editorial feature that allows users to edit their movie, they can use different editing tool provided by the app to edit up as much as four different video streams into one clip. The app is able to collect almost an unlimited number of video shots, but only four of them can be featured into one movie. The app also allows users to edit not only their own recorded movies, but other movies that are shared through the app. After recording and editing the video, they can be shared to Facebook, twitter and various other social sites.
Last month Vyclone was released in the U.K. for testing; now it will be officially launched and it will also have more added privacy settings. The app will only allow users to share videos with only people watching the same event, people who are in a large group, and you can deactivate sharing if you don’t want to share your video with others. The main idea is that when people record events they can only manage to record at one angle, but now with this new app they can be able to see how the same thing looked at another angle. If a lot of people can get connected with this they will be able to capture everything that will be happening, imagine at the Olympics when you really need to see the events at every angle possible.
