Mac peripheral and upgrade maker XLR8, Inc. may have
closed its doors, but support for one of its products lives on thanks to the efforts of Atlanta, Ga.-based Mac software developer
EchoFX. The company today announced that it will continue offering sales and support of the software it developed for XLR8’s InterView, an analog USB-based video capture device.
XLR8 had been shipping EchoFX’s software with XLR8 InterView 2.1 and higher since May, according to EchoFX. The software provided InterView with Mac OS X compatibility and an enhanced feature set, like higher quality video, better frame rates, larger frame sizes, better sound synchronization and more.
EchoFX said today that it will provide its latest OS X software drivers to previous InterView 2.1 customers free of charge. If you’re an older InterView user and haven’t upgraded by now, you’re also in luck: EchoFX also will sell its Mac OS X software upgrade for the InterView via its Web site. It plans to do so without requiring InterView users to send their devices in for upgrade — a change from XLR8’s policy, apparently.
The software upgrade is available for US$25. EchoFX also offers previous InterView 2.1 costumers ongoing technical support.
