Atlanta, GA. Today, EchoFX, a Macintosh software developer,
announced the immediate availability of USBVision For Mac OS X 1.1 -software
drivers for video digitizing devices including the XLR8

Version 1.1 adds auto-file naming, keyboard snapshot access,
duration-based recording, and broader AppleScript support to the
USBVision Capture software. Aspect ratio management has been added
across the board -from snapshots, to recordings to exporting.
Software launch times have been significantly improved.
The software will now install without a serial number and will
operate in "demonstration" mode until it is serialized.
Issues with CapSure and VideoBus II devices have also been resolved.
EchoFX is also pleased to announce special pricing on Econ Technologies
ImageCaster 2.0 software. A fully-licensed version is available for
only $19.95, a 33% savings to those who purchase, or have purchased

eight video capture devices to run simultaneously on one computer.
