TV studio software gets new render engine

Boinx Software has released BoinxTV 1.5, updating its live-video production software. The software allows users to produce Live TV broadcasts via a Mac, with live-to-disk, live-to-Internet and live-to-stage options. It supports producing studio shows, podcasts, sports events, interviews, sermons and concerts and can manage multiple camera feeds.

Version 1.5 features multi-core Mac optimization thanks to a new render engine. It has new stability improvements and improved performance thanks to memory usage optimizations. There is better frame-drop prevention on HDV and a better undo function. Version 1.5 is also optimized for Snow Leopard and is now Snow Leopard preferred, with future versions to work only in Mac OS X 10.6.

BoinxTV 1.5 requires Mac OS X 10.5.7 (Snow Leopard preferred) or higher and QuickTime 7.5.5 or newer, along with a strong recommendation for the Apple Intermediate Codec that is installed by iLife '05 or newer or one of the Apple Pro software packages. Hardware requirements include an Intel Mac with discrete graphics or the latest G5 with ATI graphics and 2GB of RAM. Multi-camera setups general require a Mac Pro with an ATI HD 3870 graphic card.

BoinxTV is $500 for the unlimited version. A sponsored version, avialable for $200, adds a five-second BoinxTV credit to every show produced by the software.
