GoPro Unlocks The Data Behind Your Videos By Adding GPS and Telemetry Layers
GoPro recently dropped some new hardware accessory options [aka their own Drone] and now has some new software updates that let you find out just How Fast? How Far? How High? you’re actually going. The new Telemetry feature in Quik for Desktop Unlocks Your HERO5 Black’s GPS.
Details from GoPro:
Unlock the data behind your GoPro content with telemetry gauges available today on the Quik for Desktop app. The new telemetry feature adds an immersive layer to your story by providing stats about the action as it unfolds on-screen, from how fast you were speeding down the line on your last mountain run or big wave, to how high you climbed or how many g’s you pulled in your best track turn.
GoPro telemetry taps into the GPS capabilities of the HERO5 Black by capturing data about your GPS path, speed, altitude, g-force, elevation gain and more. The results are overlaid as graphics on your videos, making your content more meaningful and providing benchmarks and milestones for your experiences. The overlays are also customizable, allowing you to resize and move the gauges and turn on or off each data graphic.
Here’s a more detailed overview of the telemetry data you’ll see in Quik for Desktop with your GPS-activated HERO5 videos:
