PowerBoost brings conferencing to older Macs

updated 10:05 am EST, Fri November 16, 2007

PowerBoost conferencing

Ecamm Network has released a new Mac conferencing application, PowerBoost. The program is an add-on for iChat, and allows older Macs to use features more commonly reserved for the most recent systems. G4 Macs such as iBooks and eMacs can finally participate in multi-user conferences, which support up to 10 participants via audio, or as many as four via video. The program now also enables owners of PowerPC or Core Solo Macs to use the Photo Booth effects in Leopard's iChat 4, though backdrop effects are still off-limits.

Because the program assigns unusual priority to iChat, a CPU meter gauges how close a user is to overburdening their system. Mac OS X 10.4 or higher is required, as is iChat 3 and a broadband Internet connection. A single license costs $8, while a three-license pack costs $19.
