Geotate and DXG technology present GPS-camcorder at Photokina
GPS software company Geotate, said today it is debuting collaboration with DXG Technology Corp, one of the world’s leading manufacturers and designers of digital cameras and camcorders. They are announcing at the show the first GPS-enabled camcorder, based on Geotate technology and the DXG’s DVH586 Platform.

Geotate’s technology captures GPS signal data in a very short time and processes them later once the video is transferred to a computer with Internet access. The benefit of the solution is a low cost for the camera manufacturer and no waiting time for the user to get a good GPS satellite reception.

The product announced today is the reference design used by MyGuide for its geotagging camcorder - Geotate and MyGuide are part of the same holding company, Road Group. The so-called m.icatcher, which was shown at the IFA trade show in Berlin earlier this month, should be available at €249 before the end of the year.
