[9:00 AM] XLR8 Updates USB Video Capture Package
by Staff

XLR8 has updated their USB media capture software, InterView, to version 2.0. The application allows non-FireWire equipped camcorders to be connected to a USB Mac or iMac for real-time video editing. The update includes performance enhancements and new features. According to XLR8:

XLR8, the award-winning leader in Macintosh performance and peripherals, is now shipping its new InterView 2.0 Media Capture Software upgrade for Mac USB. InterView 2.0's breakthrough advancement in media capture technology delivers full compatibility with all major video editing software packages, broader Internet capabilities (including QuickTime™ streaming and webcasting), as well as a completely new application-XLR8 TheaterTM. XLR8 Theater allows for full screen viewing from a DVD player, satellite tuner or VCR-turning any Mac into a stand alone entertainment system.

InterView Media Capture Software and Cabling allow users to import analog video and audio into any USB-equipped Macintosh computer. It supports real-time video at resolutions up to 320x240, snapshots at resolutions up to 640x480 and supports both NTSC and PAL video formats. InterView 2.0 is the perfect add-on for any Mac system, including the new iMac® DV. Owners of iMac DV systems that do not have a FireWire® equipped camcorder can import video via the iMac's USB port.

InterView 2.0, like its predecessor, includes Apple® QuickTime™ 4.0 and is bundled with Strata VideoShop™ 4.5 (DV) video editing software package and Strata TuneBuilderTM. InterView 2.0 also offers additional compatibility with Adobe Premiere™, Final Cut Pro™, and many other standard video editing packages. InterView 2.0 includes a 30-day trial version of Sorenson BroadcasterTM. Sorenson Broadcaster is the first live audio and video broadcasting tool created for use with QuickTime 4.0. Designed for the Macintosh platform, this versatile, software-only tool compresses video and/or audio and configures it for live streaming on a variety of networks-from local or wide-area networks to the Internet. These broadcasts can then be played on any Macintosh or Windows®-based computer using QuickTime 4.0.

InterView 2.0 is available for US$99. Registered users of version 1.x can upgrade for free. You can find more information at the XLR8 web site.
