Boinx Software acquires PhotoPresenter

September 2, 2008 in Announcements (E)

[] Munich, Germany - Boinx Software announced today it has acquired PhotoPresenter, the award-winning quick presentation tool from Arizona Software. PhotoPresenter is a template-based photo viewer that helps photographers to make animated slideshows in just a few seconds.

PhotoPresenter complements Boinx Software's other photo presentation products FotoMagico Express and FotoMagico Pro. While FotoMagico gives digital photographers fine-granular controls for creative storytelling, PhotoPresenter is the perfect tool for making stylish photo presentations available without authoring effort.

"With the acquisition of PhotoPresenter we strengthen our market position in Mac-based photo presentation solutions for professional photographers", said Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. "How often do professional photographers need to present results in front of impatient clients, literally directly out of the camera? With PhotoPresenter they can create ready-to-present animated slideshows with just a few mouse clicks. FotoMagico, in contrast, is the best choice if they want to tell a sophisticated story in photos with every detail of control possible. Professional photographers will have a need for both to match their different presentation workflow requirements."

Boinx Software has big plans for both PhotoPresenter and FotoMagico, with new major releases planned for 2009.

"As we are moving to new fields of interest, we wanted to give PhotoPresenter into new, responsible hands. Boinx Software has an outstanding reputation in developing quality presentation software for professional photographers," said Jean Bovet, who founded Arizona Software with his brother Simon in 1989. "We're glad that PhotoPresenter has found a new home. Boinx will also take care of the existing customers."

PhotoPresenter, winner of the Apple Design Award "Best Mac OS X Student Product Runner-Up" in 2006, helps digital photographers present their photos with style. With the pre-built animated style templates, creating an impressive slideshow requires no authoring know-how. Select the photos or the album of the iPhoto or Aperture library you'd like to show to your client, choose your preferred style template and you're done. With just a few clicks you can show your customer a bunch of photos from the last shooting, elaborately animated and almost instantly.

PhotoPresenter smoothly integrates with your favorite photo management applications on the Mac: it recognizes both iPhoto and Aperture libraries, and can play any song or playlist from iTunes. Photos can be imported from any source, such as a folder, CD, DVD or digital camera. Mixing images, movies and sound to a stylish slideshow movie is a snap. Share your photo presentation via Email, export it to iPod, iPhone, Apple TV, iWeb or iDVD, or produce a QuickTime movie or screensaver for your client.

PhotoPresenter supports multiple displays and can even treat all monitors as a single video wall for huge, breathtaking presentations. Get more information about Boinx PhotoPresenter at their website.
