Antix uses artificial intelligence to automatically edit GoPro footage
App applies ‘quantified self’ data to action sports video footage to auto- edit into shareable highlights.

LONDON, United Kingdom, October 14, 2014 - Available today, Antix makes editing and sharing action sports footage easier and more exciting. Taking part in action sports means you inevitably experience epic moments that you want to share with your friends. The burgeoning action camera market, with market leader GoPro has made recording epic moments incredibly simple. However for many this just means accumulating huge amounts of un edited footage that sits wasted on a hard drive or gets deleted.

Trawling through hours and hours of footage after an epic snowboarding or kitesurfing session to find those exact moments is tedious. By the time you’ve located the best parts, edited the footage and uploaded it to a platform like YouTube the excitement has passed.

To solve this problem Antix has developed intelligent technology that uses multiple sensors in the phone to track motion during action sports sessions. An smart algorithm determines when something exciting has happened which is then located in the video footage to produce a Vine -like highlight that is posted straight to the user’s profile. This innovative approach to automatic video editing is far less processing intensive than image recognition methods used in recent automatic video editors.

The Antix beta is available to download for free on Android devices and on the Web at www.antixapp.com.

The iOS application launch will follow soon.

Editing your footage into highlights is made simple. Pressing the record button simultaneously begins motion tracking and video recording. Antix controls your GoPro wirelessly for a seamless experience. When you’ve finished riding, Antix notifies you if something exciting was found in your session. Uploading the footage is made easy with several options; use the micro SD slot your phone, wirelessly transfer the footage straight from your GoPro or use the upload tool on the web platform.Share and show off your tricks to your friends straight from the slopes, mountains or water. Antix will surface the best highlights from users around the world, as riders strive to get their tricks in front of major action sports brands. To tap into the competitive nature of action sports enthusiasts, the platform has an in built points systems that awards more points for landing bigger tricks.

Antix has ambitious plans to become the autonomous action sports video platform that supports multiple cameras, by creating an ecosystem of action sports lovers, brands and locations. The web platform show-cases trending videos, riders and hashtags as well as enabling users to sign in and upload footage. The platform supports GoPro cameras with additional cameras brands being added soon.

Additional editing features are being tested and will soon be available to make your footage look even more epic.

Plans for monetisation include a freemium model with a Pro version and also a sponsorship model where brands can ‘sponsor’ riders’ videos.
