[prMac.com] FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
London, United Kingdom - September 27, 2007 - MildMannered Industries has announced that Iris 1.0 is now shipping. Iris is a Mac OS X application that allows users with an iSight to take snapshots, make movies, record timelapse movies, detect motion (with email alerts), and to use the iSight as a webcam.
From Iris's built-in gallery, users can email their snapshots or movies, upload their photos to Flickr, or export their movies to view on their Video iPod, Apple TV or iPhone.
"Iris makes it easy to do a whole lot more with your iSight. For example, you can set up Iris to watch your house while you're away, receive email alerts from Iris, and then view Iris's WebCam from your iPhone to see what's happening back at home in real time." said Martin Redington, founder of MildMannered Industries. "We spent a lot of time working on the user interface to make sure that, despite the wide range of functionality, Iris is as easy and straightforward to use as possible".
Main Features and Benefits:
* Take Snapshots
* Make Movies
* Record TimeLapse Movies
* Detect unwelcome visitors, with Motion Detection, and Email Alerting
* Broadcast your video over the web, with Iris's built in WebCam
* Browse snapshots and movies in Iris's built-in Gallery
"Iris doesn't just give you lots of different options for taking snapshots and movies (or timelapse movies). From Iris's built-in Gallery, users can export their recordings to many popular formats (with iPod, AppleTV and iPhone support), send them by email, or, for snapshots, upload them directly to Flickr."
Iris requires Mac OS X 10.4 or greater, and an iSight camera (built-in or external), or other USB or Firewire camera. A G4, G5, or Intel processor equipped Mac, with a Quartz Extreme video card is recommended. Iris licenses are priced at $30 USD.
