[prMac.com] Munich, Germany - Boinx Software today is proud to announce BoinxTV 1.5, a major update to its live-video production software that turns a Mac into a TV studio. The new version is optimized for Multicore-Macs and offers improved stability and performance. The update is free for all current BoinxTV users.
"Stability remains the top priority, so we made fundamental changes to the render engine to remove potential problems," says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. "With BoinxTV 1.5 we're squeezing even more performance out of the Mac."
New Render Engine:
Major improvements have been made to the whole rendering engine of BoinxTV. This will enhance stability on Multicore/Hyperthreading based Macs and improve the rendering on multiple screens with graphics cards from ATI and NVIDIA.
Many under-the-hood enhancements and fixes improves overall performance in several areas of the program. The memory usage has been optimized as well as the frame dropping behavior with HDV cams. The new Undo function is now much more powerful than before.
Optimized for Snow Leopard:
Upgrading to Snow Leopard is strongly recommended for all users to leverage BoinxTV to its full potential. Future versions of BoinxTV will make Mac OS X Snow Leopard mandatory.
