CamCamX video mixer

B-l-a-c-k-o-p Design is now shipping CamCamX, a broadcast quality video mixer for Macs that uses 8-bit uncompressed 4:2:2 component video as its native video format. "CamCamX takes a fresh approach to live video mixing on the desktop; just as with traditional video mixers any two camera sources, QuickTime movies, and still images can be used as inputs and mixed in real time. What sets CamCamX apart from other existing video mixers is that the video mix is re-routed back into the Mac as an emulated iSight (Web cam) camera." The CamCamX emulated camera is simultaneously available to all traditional Webcam and video recording applications as a live camera input. The software is priced at $30, though a lifetime subscription is also available for $100. The company also offers an AppleCare-like 3-year warranty (system requirements were unavailable).



Operators can perform a live video mix that is published as a live video in Yahoo Messenger, Skype video phone, and Adobe Flash-based video websites all at the same time. The video mix appears simultaneously on all Web cam application inputs without any special configuration, as if the video mix were itself a built-in iSight camera, according to B-l-a-c-k-o-p.

"Not only can you broadcast live, but you can, at the same time, record your live video mix directly into iMovie 08 (iMovie HD, QuickTime Pro, et al) for later republishing as a DVD, YouTube.com clip, or iPod compatible podcast."
