Humble Daisy unveils SonicPics 1.5 - Adds Video Out

June 9, 2011 in Social Networking (E)

[] Ann Arbor, Michigan - Humble Daisy released an update to its popular mobile recording tool SonicPics adding video out capability along with a new project picker interface. SonicPics makes it easy to use images from the iPhone's photo library or built in camera to make custom slide shows and then record a voiceover narrating the images as you swipe through them. Once you are finished, you can create an enhanced m4v video with your images synchronized to your narration, complete with chapter markers. Recordings can be shared in a variety of ways including posting to YouTube.

"Adding video out will allow students and professionals to plug into a external projector while they are recording." explained Humble Daisy CEO Dave Chmura. "Now you can give a photo presentation to a group while making a recording. We think this functionality will be very popular."

Humble Daisy is also in the midst of a crowd-funding initiative to support the development of ProfCast Mobile for iOS. ProfCast Mobile is based on the SonicPics foundation, but adds additional functionality such as animations and live annotations specifically target professional presenters. If the project's goal is reached, ProfCast Mobile for the iOS will be developed for release in Fall 2011. The company is giving a copy of ProfCast Mobile to each contributor of $10 or more along with other incentives.
