The ArcGIS Desktop 10.1, Full Motion Video Add-In 1.1 has been released and is available for download from the Customer Care site. The Add-In template, with documentation, sample data and videos, and tutorial has also been updated and is available for download from ArcGIS.com.
This release contains numerous enhancements.
The Add-in now supports video with the ESD metadata standard, in addition to MISB 0601.5 and MISB 0104.5, and supports live video streaming using UDP and RTSP protocols over IPv4. When you add a new video file or stream the Add-In now automatically identifies the metadata format.
A new Feature Scan function has been added to allow point, line, and polygon features on the map that fall within the video footprint to be displayed on the video. This includes features with complex geometries, such as multi-points and multi-lines, as well as polygons with donut holes and islands. Digitizing on the video has been enhanced to fully support Esri feature templates. You can use Feature Scan to see features on the video as you add them, and new context menu options have been added to let you finish your edit sketch or delete your sketch when digitizing on the video.
You can also quickly get a sense for the accuracy of the video-to-GIS registration with the new Display x/y on Video tool; this lets you click a point on the map and see where it appears on the video. New context menu items allow you to show and clear features and graphics on the video and map.
A new Bookmark manager has been added, with the ability to import and export video bookmarks, and to search within a set of bookmarks by name or keyword. You can right-click a selected bookmark and zoom to that segment of the video. You can add bookmarks while viewing a video using the Ctrl-B keyboard shortcut, and you can see tick-marks on the video timeline indicating bookmarked scenes.
The Video Manager window now supports drag and drop so you can add videos from ArcCatalog and Windows Explorer. You can also drag and drop to organize videos within the window. Finally, the menus have been reorganized to be simpler and easier to use, and buttons have been added to make it easier to Record, Mosaic, and Time-Sync videos.
You can download the Full Motion Video 1.1 template with the Full Motion Video documentation, tutorial exercises, and data from ArcGIS.com.
The ArcGIS Full Motion Video Add-In 1.1 is available as a download from the Esri Customer Care Portal (https://customers.esri.com).
