PMB (Picture Motion Browser)

Find pictures and movies easily. Organise memories automatically.
Organise pictures and movies by importing them.

Have you ever wanted to find vacation photos or sports videos saved on VAIO, and felt frustrated when you couldn’t find them quickly? With PMB (Picture Motion Browser), you can automatically organise pictures and movies into folders or according to the date that they were shot, simply by importing them into your VAIO. For example, you can see the record of a child’s growth by viewing pictures in chronological order, quickly and easily.

Search by shooting date on calendar display

By selecting Calendar in image management, thumbnails of all photos taken over the course of a year are displayed. Just search for pictures by month, date, and time, much like flipping through the pages of a calendar.

Find the movie scene you want at a glance

Multiple scenes from an imported movie are displayed as thumbnails of key scenes. You can smoothly search through lengthy footage for scenes that you want to watch. PMB is also equipped with Highlight Index, which automatically detects and displays highlights of movies. This allows you to find specific action scenes — for example, with laughter or cheering.

Search for images of the same face or smile

It’s easy to search for the images you want using Filter by Faces, which hunts for the same face in photos and video images, and Scene Search, which locates specific scenes such as Landscapes, Portraits, and Smiles.
