[8:00 AM] New QuickTime 4 Image Viewer Enters Public Beta

SearchWare Solutions has invited the public to test their upcoming QuickTime viewing application, Pix Lite. Pix Lite will support many of the same features as Apple's QuickTime, while improving flexibility and ease of use. According to SearchWare Solutions:

SearchWare Solutions is proud to announce a public testing period for its newest product, Pix Lite.

Pix Lite is a powerful, QuickTime 4 compatible image-viewer with many advanced capabilities, including:

  • Image Viewing (any QuickTime supported format)
  • QuickTime and AVI movie viewing
  • Fully Customizable Slide Show capabilities
  • Full-Screen presentation of movies
  • Extensive AppleScript support-most actions in Pix Lite are AppleScriptable.
  • Exporting of Images in most QuickTime supported formats.

The testing period will be open to the public and will consist of two stages. The first stage will be to finalize the feature-set of the software. Testers will be able to provide feedback as to what other features they would like to see included in the final release of Pix Lite. The second stage will consist exclusively of extensive bug-finding/fixing. Anyone is free to take part in either stage of testing.

Although Pix Lite will be released as shareware, testers will be able to freely use the software during the testing period.

SearchWare Solutions is very excited to offer this testing opportunity to the public, and looks forward to working with the testers to make Pix Lite the best image-viewer on the market.

Those interested in testing Pix Lite can find more information at the SearchWare Solutions web site. This public beta is a free download.
