Kato — the innovative device for a geotagging
GPS, as well as Wi-Fi — the main trends, which general emergence is predicted for all parts of the market of cameras. And if devices with Wi-Fi can be met even in the Belarusian market, GPS because of own power consumption and slow start did not find a wide circulation as the built-in device.
The ordinary GPS device needs some seconds for detection of a signal of the satellite, 30 seconds to download information on a satellite orbit, and some more seconds for calculation of a position of the user.
Kato — an accessory for a geotagging, deprived of this defect. The matter is that of 31 GPS-cputnikovs the device does processing of a signal of 1 not without the aid of others. Kato writes down a crude signal of the satellite on the flash memory, and all calculations are carried out already then by the computer of the user on the basis of downloaded with the specialist of the website инфы. Synchronization геодаты with chamber pictures, on the basis of time in which they were made follows. Pictures with geodaty can be added, for example, in Maps Google, in the same place to see all places which you visited and where a certain shot was specifically made.
While development is tested only with the jpeg format, in plans — record геодаты in the raw formats. The device works at one charge of batteries of 90 days. The company positions the device more for professional users, but on external shape to tell it it is impossible. Will cost an accessory about $140, and creation will be adjusted closer by October. To behold Kato it will be possible at the Photokina exhibition in Cologne.
