We know that many of you take advantage of your large touchscreen smartphones to watch videos or movies on the go. Unlike watching DVD’s at home, however, I’m sure you’ve discovered that the current video galleries do not allow you to jump to your favorite scene or where you left off. Instead you have to start from the beginning of the video and fast forward to that scene.
Today, we are pleased to announce Nokia Video Cuts to address this specific problem. Developed by Nokia Research Center, Beijing, Nokia Video Cuts can replace your current video gallery and provide a key missing feature to make your viewing experience more convenient.
Nokia Video Cuts uses key frame extraction technology to separate a video’s key scenes, allowing you to jump from one scene to another with one simple click. The Nokia Video Cuts video gallery organizes your videos by title and also uses thumbnail images for easy searching. Full kinetic scrolling is smooth and snappy, and just like other video galleries, Nokia Video Cuts offers all the same functionality you would expect, like volume adjustment and full screen viewing.
Nokia Video Cuts is an experimental beta and we are currently evaluating how to take it further. So if you’re interested, download the application and let us know what you think.
