Boinx iRecordNow 1.0 turns iSight into a digital camcorder

Munich, Germany - October 30th, 2003. Boinx iStopMotion 1.0 for Mac OS X is available. The software offers a simple, elegant way to use your iSight to record video. The USD14.95 product is available through Kagi. A one day demo key can be obtained from the website http://www.irecordnow.com.

"The goal of Boinx iRecordNow is to turn your iSight into a digital camcorder that is as easy to use as a real world camcorder," says Florian Albrecht, Software Designer at Boinx Software, a division of GeBE Computer & Peripherie GmbH of Munich, Germany. "The simple, one button operation that you are used to from your real world digital video camera was the central theme of our vision". In a review, Derrick Story, managing editor of the O'Reilly MacDevCenter, called iRecordNow a "nifty application". "One of the things that impressed me was the quality of the capture", he said in his article on macdevcenter.com

More fun with your iSight

Boinx iRecordNow is the second application by Boinx Software, targeted at expanding the uses for your digital hub equipment, in this case especially the Apple iSight. Like Boinx iStopMotion, it aims at bringing fun and excitement into the digital world.

Ease of use

Boinx iRecordNow features a simple, one button interface. You press the record button, it starts recording, you press the button again and it stops and creates a clip file on your computer. The format of the clips and the compression can be determined by simply choosing one of several predefined settings. The movie clips can then be imported into iMovie or Final Cut Pro for postproduction.

Control camera properties

Another key feature of Boinx iRecordNow is the ability to control camera properties such as brightness, saturation and color hue even while recording. In a future version, Boinx Software plans to support the iSight's unique focus control. This opens up the application for artistic purposes.

Other Camera support

The software does also work with lots of other cameras, but the iSight is the only camera Boinx Software fully supports at this time.

Pricing and availability

The investment for Boinx iRecordNow is USD 14.95 and it is available through Kagi immediately. To purchase a license, go to http://www.irecordnow.com/license A one day demo license can also be obtained from that site. Customers can return and request demo licenses as often as they need until they can decide to purchase a permanent license.
