1. Condition ONE for iPad | Free 9to5Mac is live at CES 2013 and attended the ShowStoppers CES event last night, where we saw a demo of version 2.0. This video software app employs a Quad720 Immersive Video Player so users can experience ultra high-resolution 5K immersive videos, get “transported to events around the world” with its live-enabled video player, and shoot and experience video with an upcoming iOS app and web player. The software also supports video files shot with RED, GoPro, and DSLR cameras. Unfortunately, the latest update will delete all the content from users’ existing Condition One app.
