Utah App Developer Announces New iPhone Hardware Specs

Press Release

May 4, 2012

A new innovation now allows iPhone users to record high-definition video at 60 frames per second (fps), thanks to an independent Utah application development shop that has discovered how to make the iPhone do what others thought impossible.

The new application, called SloPro, enables iOS devices to capture video at twice the normal frame rate for playback in slow motion without becoming choppy. It also allows users to decide, after the fact, when they want their video to go in and out of slow motion.

“One cool thing about SloPro is that you don't have to wait for the video to render to watch it in slow motion,” developer Spencer Smith said of the app, which went live in the App Store late last week and has already been downloaded 100,000 times. “We realized in testing that this was a must have.”

The application makes uploading to Facebook and YouTube simple as well, Smith said. The application is a product of Utah-based Sand Mountain Studios, which last month won the Grow Utah Ventures 2012 Digital Media Concept to Company contest (www.concepttocompany.org). As the grand prize winner, the company secured $10,000 from Grow Utah Ventures and the Digital Media UCAP Consortium. It also received valuable in-kind service prizes from the major contest sponsors, including Grant Thornton (financial management services), Thorpe North and Western (IP legal services), and Bennett Tueller Johnson (general legal services).

Sand Mountain Studios is also receiving consulting support from USTAR’s Central Region technology outreach office, based at Utah Valley University.

“This is a really exciting breakthrough that makes high frame rate recording available to a much wider user base,” said USTAR associate director Ryan Angus. “It shows that Utah innovators have particular strengths in app development.”

SloPro is available on the App Store for free with an optional $1.99 upgrade for more advanced features.
