AirBeam 2 released

We are proud to announce AirBeam 2, the major remake of our AirBeam App-suite that turns iPhones, iPads and Macs into flexible remote cameras. AirBeam streams live video and audio from the cameras and microphones of of iPhones, iPods or iPads. The stream can be followed and controlled remotely on another device with the App or a web browser. AirBeam 2 is the largest update since AirBeam was released more than four years ago and introduces many exciting new features:

  • Two way audio to allow the monitor speak through the remote camera.
  • Dropbox integration to automatically upload recorded videos and photos to Dropbox.
  • Hardware accelerated H.264 video encoding for video streaming in Full-HD quality.
  • Still image support to capture high quality photos while streaming.
  • Remote settings control to adjust camera setting such as resolution, frame rate and quality.
  • Split screen view on iPad to view up to four cameras simultaneously.
  • Remote access via browser or app to the media library of the camera device.
  • Many more detail improvements.

Unfortunately we had to drop support for iOS6 and earlier, as it is technically not possible to support older versions while making use of the new capabilities at the same time. So if you are using still an iPhone 3GS with AirBeam, we recommend to not delete the previous app version on these devices when you upgrade.

AirBeam 1.6 adds email alerts

Today we are proud to announce the next major release of AirBeam for iOS. AirBeam 1.6 now supports what many of you have been asking for: Email alerts, triggered by motion and audio detection.

If activated, AirBeam now automatically takes photo snapshots in case of detected events, attaches them to an email and sends it to a configurable email address. It is even possible to automatically record short video clips and attach them to the mails. A rate limiter allows you to limit the number of emails being sent if there is too much action going on in front of the camera.

And of course AirBeam 1.6 has been optimized for the latest hardware and software Apple brought to us. AirBeam now takes full advantage of the additional performance the iPhone 5 provides. We were able to almost double the video encoding speed and frame rates compared to an iPhone 4s, especially at HD resolution. AirBeam now also takes full advantage of the additional screen real estate of an iPhone 5.

Unfortunately we had to drop support for the old iPhone 3G (3GS still works) with this release, as it is technically not possible to support both the new iPhone5 and the old 3G in one app. So if you are using still an iPhone 3G with AirBeam, we recommend to not delete the previous app version on these devices when you upgrade.

Requirements

  • Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
  • Video capturing requires built-in camera (iPhone 3GS/4/5, iPod 4G/5G, iPad, iPad2)
  • Audio capturing requires built-in microphone (iPhone 3GS/4/5, iPod 4G/5G, iPad, iPad2)
  • Operating System iOS 4.3 or higher.
  • Universal Application

Pricing and availability

AirBeam 1.6 for iOS is $3.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the iTunes App Store in the Photo & Video category.
