Eline Technologies has updated VideoClix, their video authoring software, to version 2.5. It’s compatible with Mac OS X and Mac OS 8.6-9.x.
VideoClix lets you build interactivity into a video image, enabling viewers to click on objects in the video and get feedback such as purchasing information, biography, location and more. You can add dynamic video hotspots, create time triggered actions and incorporate text and chapters without any scripting.
VideoClix-enabled content can be served from any HTTP or RTSP server and tie into any database or e-Commerce back-end and it doesn’t require an additional plug-in on the client side. Supported file formats are QuickTime .mov: MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, AVI, Flash and DV.
Version 2.5 adds real-time tracking that’s purportedly more responsive. VideoClix 2.5 costs US$249; registered users can update for $99.
