Daystar Ships "New, High Quality" USB Video Capture...
introducing XLR8 InterView 3.0!
Real-time 320 x 240, internet ready, USB video capture from one or more
cameras, decks or recorders in Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows XP.

Atlanta, Georgia, July 16, 2004: Daystar Technology, a leading Macintosh Technology Integrator, has expanded the XLR8 USB Video Capture technology to deliver higher quality, and new functionality from its award winning XLR8 InterView Video Capture product.

Combining technologies from XLR8, iRez, ArcSoft and EchoFX, Daystar has expanded InterView for multiple device support, and Windows XP compatibility. For ease of use, Daystar has added the ArcSoft VideoImpression (v1) editing and capture application. VideoImpression provides an 'iMovie' like interface for use in Mac OS X, Mac OS 9 and Windows XP.

XLR8 InterView 3.0 includes all the hardware and software any user needs to grab video/audio from any normal camera, recorder or deck. It is also excellent for webcam and security camera applications. Its universal drivers support a wide range of applications and allow multiple cameras on the same system (one Interview for each camera).

Features of InterView 3.0 include;

  • Real-time Internet Ready Video Capture to any USB equipped system (500 MHz or faster).
    • 352 x 240, 29.97 fps NTSC
    • 352 x 288, 25 fps PAL/SECAM
  • VideoImpression Capture and Editing for Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows XP.
  • S-Video and RCA (standard) composite video and stereo audio input. Supports any USB equipped system!
  • High contrast, high quality video - better than DV at the same size.
  • Low Disk space requirements - 4 GB per hour for video and audio.
  • High resolution single frame capture - 640 x 480.
  • Fast Record Playback, for near real-time playback during captures.
  • AppleScript enabled capture software for full automation capability.
  • Export movies to any QuickTime supported format, including iMovie DV and DVStreams without having to purchase QuickTime Pro!
  • QuickTime Broadcaster compatibility, delivering the ability for users to get professional quality MPEG-4 streaming, even in low-bandwidth situations .

"We wanted to provide a solution that delivers fast video at a size that is easily viewed on the internet," said Gary Dailey, president of Daystar. "For standard internet sized video, InterView with its hardware based resize and compression technology, delivers better quality than the highest priced Pro DV systems available. At $89, it is the perfect solution for home users and professionals."
