Introducing Mouseposé 4

Germering, March 18th, 2019 – Boinx Software introduces Mouseposé 4 for Mac, the mouse pointer highlighting tool (aka "virtual laserpointer") for everyone doing demos at tradeshows, presentations, trainings and screencasts, or those individuals with huge and high resolution displays. The new version requires macOS Mojave and provides support for full screen mode, PowerPoint and Keynote presentations and has been completely rewritten in Apple's modern Swift language.

"With Mouseposé 4, Boinx Software is reinforcing our commitment to providing great tools for Mac," says Oliver Breidenbach. "Although it is not a big business, many users rely on Mouseposé for supporting them in their daily work."

The Mouseposé Effect

The audience will be able to follow you much better throughout your presentation if people can clearly see what you are doing. In contrast to a simple laser pointer, not only does Mouseposé highlight the mouse pointer in a spectacular way by dimming the screen and shining a spotlight on the area around it, mouse clicks and key strokes are also visualized, easily guiding the audiences attention.

Pricing and Availability

Mouseposé 4 is currently available exclusively through the Boinx Software web site at http://boinx.com/mousepose for USD 9.99 per year.

Mouseposé 4 requires macOS Mojave.

Germering, September 8th, 2018 – Version 4.3 of the Apple Design Award winning live video production application mimoLive - The Multi-In, Multi-Out Live Video Engine for the Mac is now available from Boinx Software. Integration of social media content such as Facebook comments, Facebook reactions and Facebook page likes along with Twitter tweets, Instagram photos and more is the focus of the release which also features numerous enhancements and fixes.

“Our commitment to provide the best live streaming application on the Mac continues with this latest release focused on features most requested by visitors to our NAB booth,” says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. “Engaging the audience is the holy grail of live video and the best way to do this is by allowing users to interact with the hosts and the live video.”

“Software-driven IP workflows are quickly becoming ubiquitous in video production, with NDI® being the most widely adopted IP technology on the market accessible to millions of customers today. Products like mimoLive create opportunities for customers that did not previously exist,” said Michael Kornet, executive vice president and general manager of NDI for NewTek.

Facebook Comments

Moderating and answering comments on air is the key to successful audience engagement. mimoLive now offers an affordable and easy way to monitor incoming comments and to put them on air for the audience to read along. Comments can be shown as a continuous flow or one by one. The new Social Media source lets you grab the comments of any live video stream your Facebook account has access to.

Facebook Reactions

User reactions to your live stream are a great way to let viewers participate. For example you can let them vote on an issue and display the results in near real-time in your stream. Audiences love to give feedback like this and it’s a great way to ensure a high level of interaction with your post.

Facebook Page Likes

A bigger audience is always better and giving them the gratification of seeing the counter go up in your live stream when they click on that Like button on your page will help you to grow yours. The counter can be linked to any of your pages and shows the number of Likes in almost real-time.

Twitter, Instagram And More

mimoLive already offers integration with Twitter, allowing you to moderate tweets and show a stream of your favorites. You can also easily show photos from Instagram in your live video and get the chat messages from your Twitch stream. The Screen Capture source also lets you capture content from almost any discussion or comments platform like Discord.

Out Of The Box Ideas

mimoLive also includes a way to let viewers control a PTZ camera via Twitter hashtags or commands in Facebook comments. For example, this would let you set up a camera in a show room and viewers could decide what the want to look at. This experience is almost magical and ensures a high level of interaction with your live stream which is good for your ranking.

Playout via NDI and SDI

Providing this content to your workflow is possible by playing out the graphics with transparency via NDI® and SDI. This makes it easy to integrate mimoLive with your existing equipment.

PhotoPresenter Presents Via NDI®

Germering, June 13, 2018 – PhotoPresenter for iOS, the app for show and tell style, non-linear photo presentations, is now updated with NDI® playout to enable easy integration into live video production workflows based on mimoLive for the Mac or other NDI® capable video production systems such as the NewTek TriCaster.

“NDI® really enables great workflows. In this case, we had a specific customer in mind. At their marine aquarium, they are helping visitors to learn about marine life by telling them about specific animals that swim into view in the fish tank. The fish do not follow a script, so the presenter has to pick the proper picture from their photo library on the spot to be shown at the presentation screen. With PhotoPresenter, they can then highlight parts of the photo to explain about anatomy, for example and with NDI®, in addition to presenting on their big screen, they can also send the video output to the live video stream, reaching out to a big audience beyond the on-site visitors,” says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. “This latest release reinforces our commitment to producing great tools for live video production and our support for NDI®.”

Tell, But Don’t Show, All

PhotoPresenter is designed for ad-hoc photo presentations, where the audience is not supposed to see all of the photo library, just the ones you want them to see. You can easily browse your photo library and select the photo or video you want to appear on a secondary screen attached via HDMI adaptor or AirPlay. PhotoPresenter contains a set of tools for highlighting parts of the photo, like a spotlight effect or a laser pointer and allows the user to customise the look of the screen if no particular photo is selected.

NDI® Playout Requires No Cables

With the latest release, PhotoPresenter is also able to stream the video signal out via NDI® over the network to a live video production system with NDI® ingest capabilities such as Boinx Software’s mimoLive. This makes it super easy to integrate an interactive photo presentation tool into your live video production workflow without running any cables. This leaves the presenter untethered to roam about.

Pricing and Availability

PhotoPresenter is now available on the iOS App Store as a free download with in-app purchases. Its basic functionality can be used free of charge, changing the default screen logo is available as a US$ 19.99 in-app purchase. The watermark on the NDI® signal can be removed by purchasing a US$9.99 monthly subscription or a US$99.99 yearly subscription.

"This reinforces our commitment to creating the most versatile live stream production application."

PTZ via NDI®
