Shake, Rattle and Roll with New BoinxTV ReleaseVersion 1.8 features brand new Chroma Keyer Pro filter for better keying results and new LibOrientator for demoing iOS apps (June 08, 2011)
Puchheim, Germany June 8, 2011 Boinx Software is pleased to announce the latest version of its award-winning live video production software, BoinxTV 1.8, introducing the powerful new Chroma Key Pro filter and the new LibOrientator technology. The new Chroma Key Pro delivers better video quality working with green screens in professionally lit or controlled backgrounds. Brand new LibOrientator technology transmits readouts of the sensors in your iPhone® or iPad® directly into your BoinxTV layers, allowing for real time control of on-screen objects in BoinxTV. ?The BoinxTV 1.8 release offers new, unique, and creative tools, especially for producing cool screencasts, training videos and reviews of iPad/iPhone apps. What makes BoinxTV so unique is the production in real time, saving video producers hours of editing and special effects work," comments Oliver Breidenbach, CEO, Boinx Software. "It really takes screencast and video production to a whole new level." LibOrientator Takes Screencasts to Next Dimension
Simply download the Orientator app from the iPhone App Store on your iPhone or iPad 2, connect to your computer via Wifi, transmit the video signal using either an Apple® Digital AV, VGA or Video adapter and the device will appear as a floating layer on screen in your BoinxTV broadcasts for dynamic, motion controlled demos of your favorite iOS apps. Whether you are tilting your iPad 2 to the right to speed around sharp curves in your favorite racing game, or moving your iPhone in a circular pattern for 360 degree photos with your You Gotta See This app, the LibOrientator technology tracks your every move on screen in BoinxTV for stellar screencasts, video reviews or product demos.

LibOrientator technology has been included in a number of new BoinxTV layers. For the iPhone/iPad app demos and tutorials, there are the iOS Device Demo 3D and iOS Device Demo layers, which display a 3D model of an iPhone or iPad where the video from the device is projected on the model's display. The data from the Orientator app is used to remotely control the 3D position of the model on the BoinxTV screen matching the movement of the real device. An Apple Design Award layer commemorates BoinxTVs Apple Design Award of 2009 and is included for demo purposes. A Google Maps layer shows a map centered on the GPS position of the iOS device running Orientator app. See the LibOrientator website at http://boinx.com/liborientator for details.
Chroma Key Pro Takes Color to New Levels
BoinxTV 1.8 also includes the new Chroma Key Pro filter which delivers much higher image quality when used with a well lit backdrop. The key is much crisper and the resulting video is sharper. The blending of edges and background is greatly improved, and there are fewer spills than with the previously standard chroma keyer. "Chroma Key Basic," the standard filter, is still included for the more ad-hoc situations where lighting and color of the backdrop are not optimal. Both chroma key filters now include a quick mask feature that allows the user to cut off areas of the video where the green screen backdrop is not present or not working well due to lighting conditions.
Version 1.8 Various Fixes and Improvements
BoinxTV 1.8 continues to improve on performance and stability. Several layers have been updated with new settings, and a new Twitpic layer shows photos that people post to the popular Twitter photo service. BoinxTV 1.8 also now features iMedia Browser version 2, which results in better performance and lower memory consumption when adding media from the supported libraries to BoinxTV documents.
