EchoFX Announces Support for XLR8 InterView USB Video Capture for Mac OS X

For Immediate Release
August 13, 2002

Atlanta, GA. Today, EchoFX, a Macintosh software developer, announced continued support for its OS X software for the XLR8 InterView USB analog video capture device. XLR8 had been shipping the EchoFX software with XLR8 InterView 2.1 and higher since May of this year. The upgraded software brings Mac OS X compatibility to the InterView device as well as provides enhanced features over previous InterView software, including higher quality video images, higher frame rates, larger frame sizes, better sound synchronization and smaller file sizes for saved movies.

XLR8 recently ceased business. Founded in 1998, the Norcross, Georgia-based XLR8 Inc. had focused on the development of Macintosh processor upgrades and peripherals. EchoFX will now provide its latest OS X software drivers to previous XLR8 InterView 2.1customers free of charge. Additionally, EchoFX will continue to sell its Mac OS X software upgrade for the InterView USB video capture device via the EchoFX web site Previously, the XLR8 upgrade program required the user to send in the device for upgrade –this requirement has been eliminated.

Chris Cooksey, EchoFX President, and former Director of Engineering for XLR8, commented on the software, “The InterView device combined with the InterView For Mac OS X software can be used in a variety of ways. Captured movies can be put on a CD or a web site for viewing by anyone with a CD player or Internet access. Or, the captured video can be used in combination with web streaming software to create online broadcasts of live or prerecorded events. Live video chat is possible with the appropriate software. InterView has always been one of the most cost-effective ways of getting video onto your computer.”

The software upgrade is available at for $25.00 USD. Ongoing technical support via email for previous InterView 2.1 customers is also available.
