Action Cam Series Gets Live Streaming Capabilities with New Firmware Update

by Matt 06/24/2014

Last week, a series of firmware updates appeared for the Action Cam line up adding a variety of new functions including the ability to live stream video from the AS100V model cameras. Also included in the AS100V firmware is motion shot mode, burst shooting, and a self-timer.

Firmware updates also released for the AS30V giving the Sony Live View Remote (model RMT-VR1) the ability to control multiple AS30V cameras, improving the auto exposure and allowing Wi-Fi to operate without requiring a memory card to be installed. 

Here’s a formal summary of the firmware updates: Formal summary of firmware updates below:

  • Live Streaming Capabilities via Internet (AS100V only): The AS100V will have the ability to utilize U-Stream® for live steaming content via the internet. You can link your favorite social accounts with the streaming to notify your friends when you’re live streaming from camera.
  • Motion Shot Mode (AS100V only): The Motion Shot LE mode will be added to the AS100V to allow users to capture traces of a moving subject in one image so that it appears to be a continuous picture. Sample screen shots below:

  • Burst Shooting and Self-Timer (AS100V only):  This new update enables burst still shooting up to 10fps as well as a self-timer with an option for a delay of either 2 seconds or 10 seconds.
  • Multi Camera Control, Wi-Fi, and Improved Auto Exposure (AS30V only):  Another update allows for the AS30V to have multi camera control (up to five cameras) via an optional Sony Live Remote Control RMT-LVR1.  Wi-Fi capabilities will now be available without a memory card inserted as well as significantly improved auto exposure.

    Thank you for an update on the 100V, please keep them coming. There is a great list on your Sony forums of about 15 things; this update hits two of them so it’s a great start. Again, thank you. The ability to turn steady shot off while keeping 120 degree (not super wide angle) would be nice as steady shot makes the image look worse but wide angle also distorts the outer parts of the video way too much. Unfortunately it’s one or the other with no setting to use the non wide angle with steady shot off.

    Keep the updates coming please! Interval photos shouldn’t be limited to 2mp when the camera can take 13.5 mp photos, looping video would be nice so it can be used as a dashboard camera, it would be nice to change a setting to have the camera display how much time is left on the storage card instead of the time the length video has been recording, which is less important.
