Macworld goes BoinxTV

"We are excited to be able to contribute to a great Macworld Expo by providing Macworld Magazine with a video production system that enables them to quickly publish the seminars, interviews and product presentations that will happen at their booth to the internet," says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. "In times where yesterdays news are old news, it is important to produce video in real time and on a tight budget. BoinxTV is the perfect solution for that."

"As a small publisher with no expertise in live video production, we're happy to be working with BoinxTV to produce our videos from our booth at Macworld 2010," says Jason Snell, VP, Editorial Director of Macworld. "It's great that we can use Mac hardware and innovative software such as BoinxTV to produce content for the show."

Boinx Software releases PhotoPresenter 4

"The goal for PhotoPresenter is to give people a tool that allows them to quickly show their photos and movies in situations where they don’t have much time to fiddle with settings, for example at a party where people want to see the pictures that the photographer just shot a minute ago," says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. ".In these situations, PhotoPresenter really is the fast lane to your audience."

PhotoPresenter 4 has been completely rewritten. The modern foundation provide the rock solid stability that could be expected of a professional presentation tool.

New User Interface

PhotoPresenter 4 sports a revamped user interface. Gorgeous to look at but also with improved usability. The preview pane for example shows an animated preview of the current selected theme. With the Quick Look HUDs the information you need is just a simple click of your mouse away.

New & Improved Themes

PhotoPresenter 4 is built around 37 high-quality themes – among them the popular "Origami" as seen on the iPad – to create animated slideshows with amazing effects instantly. Every theme offers a variety of settings to configure it to your needs. PhotoPresenter 4 remembers the theme you selected for each album, so that it is easy to keep various different presentations on hand.

Flickr & Photo Booth Integration

PhotoPresenter 4 integrates with all of the iApps on the Mac as iTunes, iDVD, iWeb or iPhoto but also with Photo Booth and Aperture – including the new Aperture 3. Flickr Users now can access their photos from their photo stream as well as the images of their friends.

Standalone Player

The most elegant way to share the own photos is to create a Standalone Player. With a Standalone Player every Mac user can enjoy your work in the best possible quality without having PhotoPresenter installed.

Workflow Automation & Smart Album Awareness

PhotoPresenter 4 can be extended easily with Automator Actions and AppleScript scripts to optimize your existing workflow. It also recognizes changes in Flickr Groups and Sets as well as in Smart Albums of iPhoto or Aperture - enabling you to automatically create a presentation of the most recent best rated images in your collection without having to manually add new photos - just rate them in your collection and they will show up in the presentation.

Custom Watermarks

With PhotoPresenter it is easy for professional photographers to place a copyright notice or a watermark of their logo and web address on their show. The watermark will be displayed during the entire show.

Live Webinar

Every user of PhotoPresenter is invited to take part at a free live webinar to learn all about the new features of PhotoPresenter 4 on February 22th, 2010, 16.00 UTC (6pm GMT/DST). More information at boinx.com/webinars.

Boinx Software releases FotoMagico 3.1

"FotoMagico is already established as the premier slide show app on the Mac platform for professional photographers," says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. "These people shoot a loot of photos and their slideshows tend to have many slides in them. So with chapters, it is easier to structure your slideshows and manage shows with lots of photos and movies." FotoMagico can be used with photo library management software such as iPhoto, Aperture (including the new Aperture 3) and Adobe Lightroom.

Support for Chapters

FotoMagico 3.1 also brings support for chapters, which makes navigation during authoring and playback a lot easier. Chapters can be added at the playback head, or for selected slides. Hotkeys can now also be used for navigation between chapters during authoring. When you export your slideshow to a QuickTime file, the chapters are preserved as metadata and can be used for example when burning a DVD.

Scrubbing Live Preview

The new version 3.1 sports Scrubbing to preview animation and transitions in slow motion similar to "skimming" the Events thumbnails in iPhoto and Aperture. Scrubbing helps to fine-tune the visual aspects of your slideshow.
