Inexpensive USB Video Gets Better

SAN FRANCISCO (07/27/2000) - If you're looking for a hassle-free way to capture video from your camcorder and display it on your USB-equipped Mac, XLR8's InterView 2.0 is the way to go. The latest release fixes bugs and adds a few bells and whistles -- such as a utility for capturing the video window and displaying it full screen. Version 2.0 also updates the bundled movie-compression utility and includes a 30-day evaluation copy of Sorenson Broadcaster. Although compatibility with various video-editing and Web-cam applications has been improved in InterView 2.0, we noted sound-sync problems when we were capturing a clip using Adobe Premiere 5.1c.

PROS:Inexpensive; improved compatibility with other apps.

CONS:No printed manual for VideoShop; sound-sync problems.

List Price: US$99

COMPANY:770/561-5682, XLR8

Advice:If you own a USB-equipped Macintosh and are loath to open it to install a PCI-based digitizer card, InterView 2.0 is the smoothest route to getting video on your Mac.
