Boinx iVeZeen 2.2 Universal
Munich, Germany – October 16th, 2006. Fixing a couple of minor issues with
the popular video blogging tool iVeZeen gave the Boinx Software engineering
team the opportunity to make iVeZeen 2.2 a Universal Application and
complete the transition to Intel for the companies products.
Video Blogging Tool
When introduced in August of 2003, iVeZeen was the first application to
make recording with an Apple iSight real easy. Steve Wozniak said about the
application: “It’s simple to use, unobtrusive visually, and worked right
off the bat.” In the age of video blogging, the tool remains popular
because of its simplicity and elegance in quickly creat’ng movie clips for
use on the web.
Unique Recording Options
iVeZeen offers a number of unique ways to start and stop recording: Voice
commands using Mac OS X’s built in voice technology; Motion detection which
allows you to set up a recording trap that will record a movie when
something moves within the sight of the camera; AppleScript support lets
you set up timed recording or attach the software to many external trigger
sources such as remote controls.
Another unique feature of iVeZeen is the ability to control brightness and
focus of an external iSight during recording. The manual focus control, for
example, enables close ups that are not possible using the autofocus of the
iVeZeen 2.2 fixes a minor issue with the built-in iSights that are now part
of most shipping Macs and a rare crashing bug on dual processor machines.
While iVeZeen 2.1 worked great on Intel based Macs and performance was no
issue, the team has taken the opportunity to make iVeZeen 2.2 a Universal
Application so that it now runs natively on both PowerPC and Intel based
Macs. All Boinx Software products, including Apple Design Award 2006 Best
Mac OS X User Experience runner-up FotoMagico, the blockbuster stop motion
animation package iStopMotion and the recently refreshed presenter tool
Mousepose, are now shipping as Universal Applications.

Boinx iVeZeen 2.2 is available as a free update to all current customers.
The update can be downloaded from boinx.com/download. New licenses are
available through Kagi at US$14.95. A 5 day unlimited demo key can be
