Germering, June 13, 2018 – PhotoPresenter for iOS, the app for show and tell style, non-linear photo presentations, is now updated with NDI® playout to enable easy integration into live video production workflows based on mimoLive for the Mac or other NDI® capable video production systems such as the NewTek TriCaster.
“NDI® really enables great workflows. In this case, we had a specific customer in mind. At their marine aquarium, they are helping visitors to learn about marine life by telling them about specific animals that swim into view in the fish tank. The fish do not follow a script, so the presenter has to pick the proper picture from their photo library on the spot to be shown at the presentation screen. With PhotoPresenter, they can then highlight parts of the photo to explain about anatomy, for example and with NDI®, in addition to presenting on their big screen, they can also send the video output to the live video stream, reaching out to a big audience beyond the on-site visitors,” says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO of Boinx Software. “This latest release reinforces our commitment to producing great tools for live video production and our support for NDI®.”
Tell, But Don’t Show, All
PhotoPresenter is designed for ad-hoc photo presentations, where the audience is not supposed to see all of the photo library, just the ones you want them to see. You can easily browse your photo library and select the photo or video you want to appear on a secondary screen attached via HDMI adaptor or AirPlay. PhotoPresenter contains a set of tools for highlighting parts of the photo, like a spotlight effect or a laser pointer and allows the user to customise the look of the screen if no particular photo is selected.
NDI® Playout Requires No Cables
With the latest release, PhotoPresenter is also able to stream the video signal out via NDI® over the network to a live video production system with NDI® ingest capabilities such as Boinx Software’s mimoLive. This makes it super easy to integrate an interactive photo presentation tool into your live video production workflow without running any cables. This leaves the presenter untethered to roam about.
Pricing and Availability
PhotoPresenter is now available on the iOS App Store as a free download with in-app purchases. Its basic functionality can be used free of charge, changing the default screen logo is available as a US$ 19.99 in-app purchase. The watermark on the NDI® signal can be removed by purchasing a US$9.99 monthly subscription or a US$99.99 yearly subscription.
