Watch Sony test drive its Vision-S prototype on public roads

18th January 2021
"Sony said at the time that the car already had autonomous Level 2 driving capabilities."

Last year, Sony's Vision-S electric vehicle went from a simple prototype to something the firm said it wanted to put closer to reality . Sony announced in July that it was preparing to begin testing the vehicle on public roads by the end of 2020.

 



While at its CES 2021 keynote it did not provide a significant update on the EV, Sony says it began testing the EV in Europe in December and shared a footage of the car driving on serene Austrian roads, the recently announced Airpeak drone of the company also appears in the video.

When Sony first unveiled the S-Vision at CES 2020, it claimed that it was created to demonstrate its technology to auto industry companies. Two 200kW engines were present in the prototype we saw at the trade show and had the potential to accelerate to 62 MPH in 4.8 seconds.

Sony said at the time that the car already had autonomous Level 2 driving capabilities, but that it was aiming to make it more autonomous in the future.

Sony digital camera webcam software is now available for Macs

15th January 2021
"This will surely upgrade your Zoom calls."

Sony has released a new version of its Imaging Edge Webcam software for Macs, which allows you to directly plug in a recent Sony camera to use as a high-quality webcam for Zoom or Skype calls on your computer.

The company had already released a version of the software for Windows back in August, but the new release means that Mac users can also get in on the action, with crisp, high-quality video calls.

The new software works with 36 of Sony’s cameras, including recent cameras from its E-mount and A-mount series of cameras, like the A9 II, A9, A7S III, A7R IV, A7R III, A7R II, A7S II, A7S, A7 III, A7 II, A6600, A6500, A6400, A6100, as well as its fixed-lens devices like RX100 VII, RX100 VI, RX0 II, RX0, and the vlog-focused ZV-1.

Older devices, like the original A7 or the A6000, aren’t supported, although you can still manually connect them for use as a webcam using an HDMI capture card (this cheap model that costs between $11 and $25 does the trick.)

Sony is one of the last camera companies to offer a software solution for using its high-end cameras as a webcam: Canon, Olympus, Panasonic, Fujifilm, and GoPro have all also already offered software for their own devices.

TikTok signs deal with Sony Music to expand music library

17th January 2021
"TikTok signed a deal with Sony Music Entertainment"

Short video-sharing app TikTok said on Monday it had signed a deal with Sony Music Entertainment that will give all its users access to Sony’s portfolio of music including global artists such as Beyonce, Martin Garrix and Harry Styles.

--GoogleAdsReviews--

The deal will allow Sony Music to use TikTok's platform, home to several viral internet trends and where emerging artists have garnered fans quickly, to promote its artists.

The partnership comes a day after the U.S. Commerce Department said it would “vigorously defend” an executive order that seeks to bar transactions with Chinese-owned TikTok after a federal judge halted the action.

TikTok signed similar deals with UK-based non profit Merlin earlier this year, in a bid to expand its music library and a multi-year partnership with Paris-based Believe, a music platform for independent artists, in July.
