Freeverse Software on Monday released
Periscope, webcam software for Mac OS X. It costs $29.95, and a free trial version is available for download.
Periscope is designed to work with iSight and other webcams, making it easy to capture activity that’s going on in front of it, then save or share that image. The software can capture a picture whenever the camera sees movement or the microphone hears noise, for example, making Periscope useful as a home security tool.
You can also capture images when timers go off or when an AppleScript is run, or when a remote control triggers an action. You can add timestamps, images such as art or logos and text labels.
Periscope also features built-in capabilities to upload images to .Mac, and works with Flickr, e-mail clients, FTP, iPhoto or can save to a local folder.
Periscope requires Mac OS X v10.4 or later and works with built-in and external iSights and supported third-party USB or FireWire cameras. (Mac OS X v10.4.9 adds improved support for third-party cameras). Periscope is a Universal binary.
