SAN DIEGO, June 18, 2014 – Sony Electronics has released a series of firmware updates for their Action Cam lineup that add a variety of new functionality including the ability to live stream video from the flagship AS100V cameras.

In addition to live streaming, the new firmware adds motion shot mode, burst shooting, and a self-timer to the Action Cam AS100V model.

There is also an update available for the AS30V model which gives the Sony Live View Remote (model RMT-VR1) the ability to control multiple AS30V cameras, improves the auto exposure and allows Wi-Fi to operate without requiring a memory card to be installed.

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. Now you can link your favorite social accounts with the streaming to notify your friends when you’re live streaming from your 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:

1. 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.

2. 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.
