New video chat service Spin has launched its app for iOS, bringing features that have previously been uncommon to mobile video chat applications. Specifically, the app uses what it calls “Human Fidelity” technology, which combines wideband 44kHz audio and full HD scaling video at 60 frames per second. The app also supports up to ten users for video chat with support for sharing from networks such as Flickr, Facebook and YouTube, and also contains special effects for group chat and a live drawing option for users.

Connect up to ten people and enjoy stunningly beautiful photos and videos live and fully together – with quality so true to life, you’ll feel like you’re side by side. With full mobility and colorful motion effects, you can amp up the fun anywhere, anytime!

Additionally, the app contains a gesture-based interface which allows the user to perform tasks such as increasing volume and dragging content to share. Spin also allows users to edit sharable content in real time, such as adding quick filters on photos and increasing the volume of a live shared video to emphasize specific content.

Spin is a free app for the iPhone and iPad and can be downloaded through the App Store. [Direct Link]

There is a new Apple TV rumored for later this month. Maybe they're working with apple for a new video conferencing feature?

My guess is that they were poorly drawing attention to the fact that you can use AirPlay Mirroring to put your conference up on your Apple TV. It seems unlikely that Apple would partner with someone else for video conferencing at launch. They would promote FaceTime, instead.

"Spin me sometime!"

"I'll Spin you tomorrow!"

Nope, not gonna catch on. Do we REALLY need yet ANOTHER video chat service?

----------

Wideband Audio? 44kHz? (presume 44.1kHz...)

Hardly wideband is it?

Why isn't it wideband? Telephone conversations are very narrow at about 4kHz, 44kHz is CD quality.
