High-speed image delivery and reliability to smoothen your on-site photography requirements
MIDDLE EAST AND AFRICA – Nikon Middle East and Africa FZE. introduces the all-new NX MobileAir, a smartphone application that facilitates and streamlines users’ on-site workflow, which is especially beneficial to those who shoot outdoors and have extremely tight deadlines. Providing hassle-free file transfers and high productivity through an expedited and quality rendering of outputs, the app is for users who prioritise efficiency but do not want to discount image quality. Users can also reduce the need for multitasking as the NX MobileAir allows fully automated or manual image transfers to FTP servers with a USB connection between the camera and mobile device; bidding farewell to the disruptive and laborious need of tending to file transfers amidst capturing transient moments.
"Affording users an accelerated workflow, the NX MobileAir is the new go-to for users such as sports and press photographers, who face urgent and intense deadlines or wish to simplify the process of file transfers and minute editing. With intuitive features and utilising the 4G and 5G networks to upload images to an FTP server, the app streamlines workflows for today’s busy photographers,” said Narendra Menon, Managing Director of Nikon Middle East FZE.
EXPERIENCE INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY
Ease up processes with the utilitarian NX MobileAir. Tap into the smartphone application’s fully automated, quick and reliable, image transfer function that exports users’ photographs from their cameras to their phones with USB connection1 and registered FTP servers via the mobile network. Enjoy better efficiency with this application that also equips users an auto-straighten option and the ability to automatically add International Press Telecommunications Council (IPTC) information onto images upon exporting them.
Alternatively, users can export their photographs manually. With this app, photographers can either import protected images when exporting to a smartphone or upload specific images to an FTP server by selecting the preferred images.
ENJOY EASY OPERATIONS
Simplify operations by making use of the app’s import voice memo feature that allows a playback for users who record audio notes through their cameras2. As this application supports mobile connectivity, users will not need lug computers around while shooting or purchase dedicated network accessories like wireless transmitters to be connected to Wi-Fi networks; minimise the equipment load and upload images anytime, anywhere. Furthermore, users can improve the quality of their images on-site through NX MobileAir’s quick editing features – making cropping, rotating and straightening images a breeze.
MAXIMISE YOUR EFFICIENCY
With the app’s features, one can also opt to manually add IPTC information to specified images or entire albums, which can also be done via voice inputs through the device’s native voice-to-text function and create pre-sets to ease future operations. Furthermore, double checking on images and their corresponding information to ensure accuracy can be done efficiently with the application’s image browsing and selection function.
With the app, users are able to configure the IPTC and FTP settings for each album. This allows them to switch from one album to another during shoots, which can aid in categorisation and ensuring an organised workflow. Registering, importing and exporting up to 50 IPTC and FTP presets can also be done, and users can customise the order and names of each IPTC label. On that note, the NX MobileAir also enables users to upload images to FTP servers in the sequence they were selected.
For further ease of use, the app equips professionals with the option to check status of uploads to FTP servers. Should an error occur during import, the NX MobileAir can resume the import once a connection has been re-established.
In addition, users can adeptly meet professional expectations by ensuring that minimal errors are made in their workflow. The app affords users the capability of locking their smartphones’ screens while keeping the app running which helps prevent any accidental execution of unintended commands.
Workflows need not be complicated, simplify it and stay efficient with the NX MobileAir.
