Record horizontal videos no matter how you hold your device.

THESSALONIKI, Available since the  14th of January,  on the App Store, Horizon lets users record horizontal videos regardless of the device’s orientation. Users can hold their devices upright, sideways or even keep rotating them while capturing and the resulting video will always stay horizontal.

While many apps like Instagram offer straightening in photos,  Horizon is the first app to do this on video and in real-time.

As the user records, Horizon auto-levels videos utilizing the device’s gyroscope. The orientation of the resulting video stays corrected so that it is always parallel to the ground.

Users can also choose between eight real-time filters to apply while recording and share the final result to their favourite social network right within the app.

Horizon supports different aspect ratios and resolutions that can be changed by the user at any time. Supported resolutions include 1080p (16:9), 720p (16:9), 640×640 (square), 640×480 (4:3) and 480×480 (square), depending on the device.

The app also features three distinct leveling modes: ‘Just rotate’, the default mode, where the frame size stays fixed, ‘Scale & rotate’ where the frame is adjusted for maximum viewport and ‘Disabled’ mode where auto-leveling is disabled.

The ‘Video Quality’ options allow users to choose between higher video quality or smaller file size.
