VIDEO technology start-up MeVi is gearing up to launch an app to help people capture and share memorable mom­ents at live events such as gigs and sporting matches.

But rather than filming the action themselves, users will be able to put their smartphones down and let the Edinburgh-based firm’s technology do the hard work.

Chief executive Liza Sutherland said: “We have a patent-pending location technology that allows us to pinpoint someone in a crowd at that moment in time.

“People like to video events to prove they were there and create a memory of it, but the irony is the only memory they have is of a film. We want people to enjoy themselves and take away a memento as well.”

MeVi, based at the CodeBase technology incubator, is now aiming to raise a seven-figure sum to put the finishing touches to the system, which was tested at Edinburgh College of Art’s end-of-year party yesterday. More events are planned ahead of its launch this year.
