XMPilot Tool App

Post by timb » February 24th, 2012, 7:19 am

For anyone wanting to use and ipad, iphone or hopefully soon an Android device to see proxy video feed off your PDW700 or PDW F800 then you need the XMPilot Tool app. (as well as the software key for your camera and a WiFi adapter)

I have been using this now for a few months and am finding more ways each shoot to help make the most of the great Metadata available with the XDcam optical system. I have had good feedback from both Clients and editors.

XM-Pilot is a great tool. Just wish the dongle and key were a bit cheaper.

You are right the Dongle and key are not cheap, but its can be a great value add to your clients.

Also the Android version of the app has been released, but unfortunately will only work on Sony Android devices. This is a very bad move by SOny as if they only wanted Sony devices to work with this system they should not have released the Mac version !
