Pik'd automatically scans your GoPro in order to save you the trouble of video editing post-production.
Now your videos of surfing, skiing, snowboarding, motocross…and all those other zany activities will be easier than ever to edit, thanks to machine learning and a new attachment known as Pik’d.
Pik’d is meant to help you ensure that fun and adrenaline are the protagonists of your footage, and not much time or concern needs to be devoted to post-production.
The communication between the technologies works automatically, so the user doesn’t have to manipulate the device. All you have to do is attach the tech to your GoPro and record. Once the images have been captured, connect the camera to the computer and open the Pik’d software, which will be supplied free of charge.
From there, Pik’d picks from the recording on your GoPro (hence the name). Depending on the level of the athlete and the sport practiced, the best times are automatically indicated, leaving a manual review of the videos unnecessary.
And the team notes that a one-hour video takes no more than 10 seconds. Moreover, Pik’d’s battery life is at least 4 hours and can store several weeks of action.
In the future this device will be adding more sports to its ‘brain’ and also making it so that it can be adapted to other action cameras, such as Sony or Contour. Pik’d is currently a startup Chrysalis portfolio and will officially make its first debut to the world soon, through a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo.
“We hope to offer a cloud for users to have their collection of highlights at hand and that Pik’d become a platform for high-quality content,” Moritz Hawelka, a founding partner of Pik’d, noted in an interview.
The Pik’d founders are comprised of an Austrian team, and they have partnered with
teams in Viña del Mar, Chile in order to bring their tech to life and internationalize the product. The location in Chile is not capricious, because in Chile it is possible to tackle things like surfing, skiing, snowboarding, or downhill biking in short order. Indeed, in one day, you can enjoy the snow and the insurmountable waves of Pichilemu.
