Ultrakam Brings 4K Video Filming to iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Users With New iOS App

New App Allows iPhone 6 and 6 Plus Users to Create Cinematic Quality Productions in Stunning 4K Resolution

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Dec 16, 2014) - Ultrakam, the first mobile app company to bring 2K film resolution to iPhone 5, today launched Ultrakam for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. Unlike existing mobile camera apps, Ultrakam now allows users to capture video in stunning 4K -- cinematic quality image resolution -- transforming their iPhone into a professional video camera with its remote video monitor that controls its complete suite of production features.

"Bringing 4K image resolution to Ultrakam makes high quality filmmaking accessible to everyone," said Ultrakam's developer, Hassan Uriostegui. "Ultrakam provides an incredible filming experience with image resolution that rivals the GoPro Hero4 and it shoots cinematic quality video, just like the Sony F55 or any high-end professional video camera, for a fraction of the cost."

Designed for everyday iPhone users as well as creative film professionals, Ultrakam brings the 4K filming experience to filmmakers of every skill level. Ultrakam includes a complete production suite of features and a unique remote control companion application to give users the same filming experience that they would have with a professional cinematic quality video camera.

Key Features of Ultrakam:

  • Captures Video in 4K Image Resolution - Captures video in 4K at 50MB/s using the MJPEG codec. Resolution is 3264x2448 (8 megapixels), which is 400% more pixels than HD.
  • Cinematic Quality Camera Functionality - Fully-enabled with iOS 8 manual controls, users can manually adjust focus and shutter ISO speed, just like a professional video camera.
  • Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Remote Control - Features a remote control companion app which allows users to livestream the camera's video to another iPhone using Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and control all recording aspects from it such as focus, exposure, white balance and more.
  • User-Friendly Editing Tools - The app's gallery and preview module allows users to edit recordings easily and export to the camera roll to optimize space.
  • 4K YouTube Upload - Users can seamlessly upload productions to any existing YouTube account with outstanding 4K quality uploading.
  • Easy-to-Use Video File Transfer - Users can connect their iPhone to any computer and use the iExplorer desktop app to easily access all Ultrakam video files. They can also use iTunes file sharing to access recordings on the Applications tab, or they can transfer video files within the app's embedded web server via a Wi-Fi connection to computers on the same network.
  • Wireless and HDMI Output - AirPlay integration and HDMI output allows users to display video professionally on any external monitor.
  • Time-Lapse & Slow Motion - To meet the needs of advanced iPhone filmmakers, Ultrakam also allows filming capabilities such as time-lapse and up to 20x slow motion.

"My vision is to make mobile devices fully accessible for professional content production so that content creators can use a device they already have to create productions," said Uriostegui. "With Ultrakam's 4K resolution and full production suite, content creators all over the world can create the finest productions possible without any extra hardware, simply by using a device they already have in their pocket."

Ultrakam's full production suite and remote control companion app for iPhone 6 and 6 Plus are available together now in the App Store for $9.99.
