What's New

New: 1080p video capture
Improved: video capture quality
Improved: frame rate for director camera views
Improved: significantly reduced time to transfer clips
Improved: user experience with updated user interface
Fixed: various bugs

We are excited to release 2.0 with 1080p video capture! It's been a long journey to get to this release. We are happy to say it's finally here.

Due to hardware limitations, iPad 2 cannot capture 1080p video or export a 1080p movie from CollabraCam to the Camera Roll. If you use iPad 2 as Director with devices capable and set to 1080p video capture, the highest resolution for export of a movie will be 720p; however, If you use camera sources capable of 1080p, set to 1080p, your clips exported to the Camera Roll or to your Mac will still be 1080p since they are exported as the originally captured file. iPad 2 will take longer to create preview and export a 720p movie created with 1080p clips. If you must use iPad 2 as Director, but 720p is ok for clips, switch all camera sources to 720p video capture in the Settings prior to starting a session.

The most important change to the user interface is the Camera Status. The previous Camera Status was causing confusion for new users since it looked like a grayed out camera capture button.

We are also happy to announce that the First Edition of the CollabraCam User Guide is now available on iBooks. The CollabraCam User Guide was created to help new users learn how to use the app, from start to finish. It’s also great for educators and teachers to help students understand CollabraCam’s easy-to-use, live multicam editing and on-the-fly directing workflow.

You can now email us feedback, follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook, right from within the app! If you love CollabraCam, please review on the App Store.

App Description

Whether you want to cover all the bases at the little league game, produce your own talk show, capture action at the skate park, or shoot a video for your startup... CollabraCam makes it all possible by putting a live multicam production studio in the palm of your hands. 

You're the director and your friends are your camera ops. From an iPad you can edit and direct up to six iOS cameras live, over Wi-Fi. Send action cues to your camera ops and get the best shots from every angle. When you call it a wrap, clips are collected and assembled, and you can watch or share your movie, minutes after it's shot!

CollabraCam on the go with HotSpot to create a Wi-Fi network. CollabraCam utilizes the network, not your data plan. Don’t have HotSpot? Use a wireless router on location, there's no need for an internet connection… plug it in and you're ready to go! Or create an ad hoc network with your MacBook Pro.

Review your footage in the app or export your movie to the Camera Roll and share from there. With iCloud Photo Library you can automatically upload to iCloud and download to your Mac with the new Photos app. Export clips to the Camera Roll to assemble in iMovie and add some effects or transitions on your iPad for quick and easy post-production... download from iCloud on your Mac with Photos and use iMovie on OS X or grab your movie or your clips from your Camera Roll with Image Capture.

CollabraCam’s not magic and it's not pushed to the cloud for fairies to edit. It's easy-to-use, live multicam editing and on-the-fly directing which makes it unique. CollabraCam makes multicam video production a social experience... in real life.
