While I’m not sure why anyone would ever need the Microsoft ‘Mobicast,’ it does sounds like a cool system to have at your disposal should you find yourself in a multi-phone-video-capturing situation. You see, the Microsoft Mobicast enables disparate video capture to be combined in real time. It puts together feeds from multiple phones that have captured the same scene and synchronizes the clocks so that all the framing lines up correctly.

The Microsoft Mobicast also uses image recognition technology to properly align footage and identify parts that match in the scenes. Then, the Microsoft Mobicast blends it all together to create a bigger and more detailed view of the footage. Check out the video to see the Microsoft Mobicast in action!
