Apparently, there’ll be no Mac OS X support for XLR8’s InterView. Though the company, which specializes in Mac upgrade and acceleration products, plans support for the next generation operating system in most of its offerings, the audio-visual capture product seems to be the exception.
“It is unlikely that InterView will be supported under OS X,” according to a note from the XLR8 Sales Team. “Should support become available, information will be posted to our Web site.”
InterView Media Capture Software and Cabling allow users to import analog video and audio into any USB-equipped Mac. It supports real-time video at resolutions up to 320×240, snapshots at resolutions up to 640×480 and supports both NTSC and PAL video formats. It includes QuickTime and is bundled with Strata VideoShop 4.5 (DV) video editing software package and Strata TuneBuilder.
InterView 2.0 has a manufacturers suggested retail price of US $99. It requires a USB-equipped Power Mac G3 or G4 at 233MHz, at least 20MB of available application RAM for digitizing, Mac OS 8.6 or better, and QuickTime 4.x.
