This is pretty cool gadget, I don’t know if I’d use it daily, but it would be fun to have one to mess with. Image taking your Sony DVD or DV camera with you on a trip or hike, but also attaching the VMS-X and a GPS receiver… get the point? The VMS-X is a spatial video collection solution that integrates a GPS receiver (1) with Sony digital video cameras (2) equipped with an intelligent accessory shoe. The VMS-X (3) attaches to the top of the camera and enables the recording of video, audio, and location data to tape or DVD. After data collection, you can process the data for rapid playback in Red Hen’s multimedia mapping application, MediaMapper, or ESRI’s ArcGIS environment. Now, you’ll know exactly where you were when you shot that great video of the ground.
