New update for Sony Xperia Pro-I phone with live stream facility directly from the app. The famous Japanese electronics company Sony last year launched its Sony Xperia Pro-I handset in the market, which is an alpha camera-influenced smartphone, mainly aimed at content creators and photography/videography enthusiasts. It has a huge 1-inch sensor capable of capturing any scene in detail. And now the Sony Xperia Pro-I has received a new OTA update, which adds the ability to live-stream directly from the Videography Pro app. 

Let's know about it in detail.

Sony Xperia Pro-I handset receives new OTA update

The Sony Xperia Pro-I smartphone recently received a new over-the-air (OTA) update, which added the ability to live-stream directly from the Videography Pro app to the device's camera user interface. To facilitate any future editing, this update ensures that a file's metadata correctly represents that this new feature is activated when shooting portraits at 120 frames per second.

Those who have both Pro-I and GP-VPT2BT accessories will also benefit from this OTA. Users of the Xperia Pro-I will be able to access the Mini Tripod/Grip's “Custom” C1 button via the same Videography Pro software for more direct reprogramming.
