1280 x 720 iFrame video - also scrubbs well (51 X Medium in size)

Settings are provided that enable video stabilization, smooth autofocus, low light mode and far sighted focus. Not all iPads / iPhones support all of these optional modes.

Video from MPEG-4 Video cameras can be imported directly into the iPad's Photos app. You can refer to those videos from a Game Data Live game. You can load an entire game in 2 or 3 minutes.

You can use the following adapters from Apple to connect your MPEG-4 camcorder with a USB port or a SDHC card to your iPad. Apple also has a Lightning to USB Camera Adapter.

It only takes a couple minutes to import an entire MPEG-4 game into an iPad. Game Data Live can refer to that video and synchronize it with your play data - especially if you set your camcorder's clock to match the iPad's clock. Synchronizing video from the Photos app takes a few seconds. Use the Action menu in a Game to refer to video from the Photos App:

Using an external video camera enables one person to enter lots of data while another person shoots the video. You can also easily use a tripod for stability.
