By popular demand, the update also features an integrated configurable audio delay compensation and convenient settings to automatically create device sources. BoinxTV 1.3 is available as a free update and is highly recommended for any BoinxTV user
"We are very excited by the level of enthusiasm that BoinxTV has created since we shipped it about 6 months ago," says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. "Partnerships like the one with DVDxDV are a sign of a blossoming ecosystem around the BoinxTV platform. We are happy to be able to offer customers more options through cooperations like this."
"BoinxTV is a great product and I am confident that users will find the Veescope Key Softlyght keyer a valuable addition to its toolset," notes Brad Wright, President and CEO of DVDxDV. "I am very excited about the cooperation with Boinx Software."
In addition to the built-in standard chroma keyer, BoinxTV supports an alternative high-quality filter based on Veescope Key by DVDxDV. The "Veescope Key's Softlyght" filter for $49 shows excellent results in optimized studio lighting, especially in keying fine details (e.g. hair) and rapid movements. Users now can choose between different real-time solutions for their specific needs, to get the best results in using a studio setup with backdrops.
The new audio delay compensation in BoinxTV can be configured to make up for the latency introduced by using different cameras and peripheral connection standards. A new preference makes all connected cameras and microphones automatically available as sources. With BoinxTV 1.3 it is also possible to change the resolution of existing documents.
