The FMV team is hosting a free Esri Live Training Seminar (LTS) on Thursday, October 22nd.  If you work with videos captured by UAVs, drones, UASs, orbital sensors, vehicle-mounted or handheld cameras, or other means, attend this session to learn how you can use FMV to exploit this video inside ArcGIS.

The live training seminar showed a GP tool for multiplexing.  Is that tool available and if not when will it be available for download on myesri

I'm glad you're excited about this new capability!  We are, too.

For video that includes MISB formatted metadata, the FMV tools have been available for a long time.  The new ability to multiplex GPS with non-MISB video to ingest into the FMV tools it is not available yet, but it is coming very soon. The latest release of the FMV toolset and GP Tools (v1.3) is scheduled for next month (November 2015).  Stay tuned!

Thanks. Where can I check for the multiplexing tool release date?

I would also like an answer to this question as the expected release date (November 2015) is long gone.

Please accept our apologies for the delay and lack of information.  I have seen documentation for a release coming soon, but I don't have an exact date.  I believe it should be available by the end of January.  If you would like to work with a prerelease version, contact me through Geonet and we can provide that until the final version is released.

Walter,

Check out the following link.  it is a brief intro to the Video KLV and Telemetry Tool, VKAT.  This tool puts a user friendly GUI on the task of merging metadata with a video to create a MISB compliant file that can be opened with the FMV add-in.  If the metadata includes proper information, the user can plot the video footprint and digitize content from the video into ArcMap.

Walter - We may also have a metadata solution or partial solution for you based on Android and NMEA, XML, KLV, and KML/KMZ - and CSV in a pinch?  We are also well schooled in compression, edition, and transcode for spatial media. 

On the outside chance you might be attending the coming ESRI FedGIS meetings Feb 24 and 25th anticipate opportunity to see the next version of the FMV?  My bet you can get the next FMV version in ten-days if you keep an eye on an announcement on this list?  If of interest I will post images and MidNight Mapper's Pickers from the show? 

Back to the Fed GIS Users Conference, there will be several very interesting demonstrations of how a flood of UAS and UAS-soon2bs will leverage this spatial media future?  We too have a number of Handheld/Mobile ISR tools and extended metadata methods complementary to ArcGIS 32 FMV 1.3 as well as for FMV by PAR for ArcGIS Pro. Please take a look at NGA's App Store for sources of tools vetted and immediately useful to data sources you may have by necessary AppStore "credentials"?

For small personal or enterprise UAS, production agriculture, the Land Grants and their Experiment Stations, and USDA/USFS have heaps to offer UAS sciences for all of us.  I am aware of several efforts to create true multi-spectral synced cameras for $5000 for five discrete channels.  These integrations of essentially cell-phone cameras are mixed in frame size, pixel size, frame rates, and spectral filter. Put this stuff together with "form from motion", aka Photosynth, Pix4D, and others...  Yes, exciting times!

Now if we only had a 3D Earth to leverage all of the virtual presence and augmented reality?

Cody and Ranee, I understand you are part of the ESRI team working on FVM and I would like to ask you a few questions. I just installed the FVM on my computer and it works perfectly. I went over the available tutorials and I have a good understanding how to use the extension. However, I am a bit confused with the MISB standards. I have been collecting aerial imagery with a UAV using a GoPro Camera. I understand the camera does not support MISB standards and my data cannot be used at this moment however I want to know if the Multiplexing tool will help with my problem. Thank you
