What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

Lukilink connects your camera to your smartphone via HDMI, and replaces a monitor, a recorder, a streaming box, and even a wireless video link.

Lukillink will change the way, how you use your camera forever. Imagine a device, that is small and lightweight, has vivid colors, a bright screen, high resolution, amazing contrast, and doesn't need additional batteries, to monitor your shot.

How about recording straight from your camera, without buying a recorder? What if you could even stream out of your camera, live to YouTube, Twitter or FaceBook, with the same device? Did I mention wireless monitoring, to any monitor or TV on top of it? Actually you already have this device in your pocket - your smartphone. All you need now, is Lukilink and our app, to make it all work.

Hands-On by Frank Glencairn: 

We need your help, to make this happen. We already have the working prototypes, and they are amazing. But to bring down the price, so everybody can afford it, without selling a kidney, we need to have a large number manufactured.

Also we want to develop the app further, and add some professional controls, such as waveform, focus peaking, and 3DLUT support with future updates.

We also plan to develop a ProVersion, with SDI input.

This is, where you come in. We need your preorder. If we reach our goal, we can ship Lukilink at the end of October 2017.

_______________________________________

Have you ever whished, you could use your phone or tablet as a monitor? Now you can. Most phones feature an excellent screen, with high resolution and great contrast. Why would you waste your budget on a bulky, heavy monitor, that needs extra batteries, chargers anwhatnot. Just plug in the LukiLink into your phone, and the HDMI output of your camera. With LukiLink you can mount your phone everywhere, in every angle, even for selfie shots.

_______________________________________

LukiLink also turns your phone into an external recorder. Don't waste your time, staring at progress bars, while downloading footage from your camera to your phone. With Lukilink, it's already there. Just push the record button, edit with your favorite app and post it on the net. Yeah - it's that easy.

_______________________________________

Everybody is into live streaming now, but that front side camera of your phone is not exactly faltering, and also the backside camera can't hold a candle to a DSLR, when it comes to image quality, and cinematic look. Now you can use all the glory of your pro camera and lenses to go live. All you need is LukiLink and your phone, to make your streams stand out from the crowd.

 Letency Test - by Frank Glencairn:

++ Latency performance depends on which smartphone you are using, but is usually between 200ms and 300ms ++

Risks and challenges

For now, everything looks really good, and we are pretty confident, that this thing will skyrocket.
Our challenges for the next months, are manly adding features, like LUT support, even less delay, 4K support, waveform, and focus peaking.

We also working on the iOS app, to make sure it will be available, when the first LukiLink ships.
