Video Editing with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7

Hi everyone, we’re back with our first post for 2012!

These next couple of weeks are going to be pretty exciting with our attendance at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, but before we go we still have a couple of features on the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.7 to punch out for your enjoyment.

As with our previous Tab 7.7 work, this is a reader/viewer generated article and video for our audience, all based on the questions and feedback on things you’d like to see demonstrated or shown on the Galaxy Tab 7.7.

We fielded questions from our own site, our Facebook page,  Google+ Page and of course our YouTube channel, and came up with 5 short videos on various aspects of the Galaxy Tab 7.7.

The Galaxy Tab 7.7 has a basic video editor to add effects to videos stored on locally..

A regular on our Facebook page, Maans Le Roux, asked us about the video editor output on the Tab 7.7. One of the big issues with editing videos on smaller devices is many only save an edited video in a highly compressed format like .3gp.

The video output on this particular app that comes pre-loaded on the Tab 7.7 saves in high definition mp4, so it’s good enough to playback on larger computer and television screens, or upload to YouTube in good quality.

In fact, you can actually select the video resolution to suit different file sizes depending on how you intend to use the video.

One function we couldn’t see was to cut or crop a video’s length on the Video Editor app. This may not have been a final version on the unit we were using, so we’re not judging the app, more showing the basics of how to use the editing app and save the video to see what output formats are available.

Here’s the short video showing the video editor in use and the output selection:

 

Do you use video editing in portable devices, or upload videos straight to YouTube from your smartphone or tablet?

    Perhaps I am not the only one confused about the calling capabilities of the 7.7
    According to Samsung’s website the 7.7 3g (P6800) can make and receive calls: http://www.samsung.com/global/microsite/galaxytab/7.7/feature.html?type=find
    Conduct voice calls just like on a mobile phone. The GALAXY Tab 7.7 calling function has been upgraded to let you make and receive voice calls privately by using Receiver Mode in public places. You no longer need a headset or Bluetooth for voice calls

      Thanks for the heads up! That sounds a pretty clear statement to me regarding voice call capability.
      The version we’ve been using is Wi-Fi only, with no 3g SIM card slot. But good to know that the 3G 7.7 variant will have full communications functions on board.

    tab 7.7 can make call/sms?

    • Ritchie says:

      Using internet-enabled apps like Skype, calls can be made, but not SMS as that required a direct carrier connection.
      However, we are about to upload a tethering guide for those that own an Apple or Android Smartphone.

      Hi Giuseppe,
      Thanks for your comments!
      It looks like the Tab 7.7 have just landed in Australia, so hopefully you’ll start to see them appear in stores around your side of the world soon as well.
