About the CollabraCam App

Developer's Description

CollabraCam is the world's first multi camera video production iPhone app with live editing and director-to-camera communication.

CollabraCam provides a quick, easy and fun way to shoot and simultaneously edit live video from multiple cameras using iPhones, iPod Touches and iPad 2. CollabraCam links iOS devices running the app over local Wi-Fi to create a video switcher and communication control room with a simple, yet powerful, live video editing workflow.

You and your crew will produce exciting, dynamic videos with minimal post-production. As the director, you can view, record and edit from up to four live-streaming iOS cameras in real-time while also having the ability to silently cue the camera operators to perform pan, track, dolly or tilt camera moves or request a high or low angle.

Video clips are recorded and saved to the cameras and transferred to the director at the end of a session. When the director calls it a wrap and saves the session, the clips are transferred from the cameras and assembled in a matter of minutes!

The assembled movie can be viewed in the app and exported to your Camera Roll in three sizes. Video clips can be exported to your Camera Roll to edit in a video editing app or saved via File Sharing in iTunes to edit on your computer … or if you’ve exported clips to your Camera Roll but not had a chance to edit in an app yet, then open iMovie on your computer, plug in your device and it will automatically ask to download the clips! With minimal time and effort, you can assemble clips, add transitions and music to complete your movie's final cut.

CollabraCam on the go with a corded or battery-powered wireless router, an ad-hoc (computer-to-computer) wireless network on a laptop, a mobile HotSpot device or with iPhone HotSpot*. An internet connection is not required for any of these solutions to broadcast a Wi-Fi network for use with CollabraCam.

CollabraCam is for real-life collaborative storytelling and makes video production a social experience. Download CollabraCam, assemble your crew and crowd source your first video production today!

*With HotSpot for iPhone, the director device should be the HotSpot.

About This Resource

"Pro Filmmaker Apps" is a curated database that can help you get a job done a little better or a little faster. This is a regularly updated resource of hundreds of mobile, tablet, watch, and desktop apps. We only include apps made for and used by film, television, and digital media professionals. Originally on FWDlabs.com — now also at ProFilmmakerApps.com.

FILMCAST"FWD:labs carries the most complete listing of linked professional apps I know besides of the fragmented Android Market (google play) and the iPhone App Store. I suspect it is a tenuous work to compile and link all proven working apps and much more your site offers. I thank you for sharing such complete list of iPhone and android apps for the cinematographer and the entertainment industry in general. I could not pass the opportunity let know my readers about your meticulous resource."

Directors Notes"I thought [FWD:labs] had put together a useful list when I saw it last year, but that was nothing compared to now. If you're a filmmaker and looking for a little portable help in pre/production/post then chances are you'll find it in the [Pro Filmmaker Apps]. I know I can be a little iPhone-centric when it comes to these things, but you’ll be pleased to know the list is completely platform agnostic."
