DVdriver takes DV Cameras for a Spin
The idea of hooking up a camcorder to a PC and
using it with all the software available for webcams seems natural. But
ask anyone who's tried, and you know that programs that work with
webcams hardly ever work with camcorders. Enter DVdriver, a new software
utility from Eagletron Inc.
Install this compact program on your PC and you can use your camcorder
with any application that works with a webcam. DVdriver fools your
software into thinking that your camcorder is a webcam.
"Thanks to DVdriver," explains Eagletron's CEO Gilbert Verghese, CEO of
Eagletron, "your camcorder becomes a very high -resolution webcam as far
as your software is concerned."
With Dvdriver, you can videoconference with programs like NetMeeting,
send video to instant messaging buddies all the popular IM systems, or
broadcast a personal webcam on the Internet with your favorite webcam
application. DVdriver opens a host of uses for your camcorder.
Eagletron topped DVdriver off with an enviable array of extra features
for power users, including software control of optical zoom, the ability
to feed camcorder video to multiple applications simultaneously, and pan
tilt control for user's of Eagletron's PowerPod base.
