has launched its second generation 3-port FireWire CardBus that comes bundled with Arcsoft’s ShowBiz digital editing software — though the latter is of little use to Mac users.
The device offers a single host controller card for connecting to next generation devices and automatically configures to computers through the CardBus slot without requiring a driver. The IOGEAR card has a manufacturers suggested retail price of US$69.95 and is available immediately. It only works with Mac OS X.
The ShowBiz software is Windows only. The editing solution allows customized movies to be saved and burned for playback on a DVD player.
