The aforementioned share enhancements will be a “rich” video editor, and the ability to export recorded screenshots or videos to a USB drive. Additionally, the promised HDCP off feature will allow you to use your capture device of choice without the use of janky work arounds.

Sony also mentioned that future updates would include Twitch and Ustream video archiving, as well as adding the ability to broadcast at 720p.
