PhotoPresenter Presents Via NDI®

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.

Boinx Labs Lasers in on In-App Purchases in PhotoPresenter for iOS

Puchheim, Germany – January 28, 2014 – PhotoPresenter 3 – now available from Boinx Software for free from the App Store for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch – adds two new features making non-linear photo presentations even more fun and professional.

"You can poke the nose of the cat, like this. Very funny," Boinx Labs scientist Dr. Term T. Bowman Ph.D. says as he explains the new Finger Pointer in a video created to make it easier for the App Store team to review PhotoPresenter 3. "At Boinx Labs, we solve many problems, like Time Travel, Cold Fusion and in-app purchase for PhotoPresenter. Please always wear safety goggles when doing in-app purchase – it is more dangerous than cold fusion." He summarizes, "Cat is very important."

New Features – Available Now at 50% Off for a Limited Time Only

• The Laser Pointer Tool, featuring a traditional Laser Pointer, a Mouseposé style spotlight and the new Finger Pointer, is available as an in-app purchase of 0.99 USD (regularly 1.99 USD), though customers who purchased previous versions of PhotoPresenter for iOS will continue to have this feature for free.

• By adding a custom logo to the blackout-resting screen, users can brand presentations with their company’s logo or for an event. Or just impress friends, family or classmates with a seriously high-class show. The custom logo feature is now available as an in-app purchase for 9.99 USD (regularly 19.99 USD).

On episode 386 of TWiT MacBreak Weekly, Andy Ihnatko, technology columnist of the Chicago Sun-Times, named PhotoPresenter for iOS his "Pick of the Week," saying, "This is one of my favorite alternate presentation apps. […] Not every presentation you give is a linear presentation. Often times, you just know that you're going to be talking for about 30 minutes. There’s going to be a meeting, a lot of different topics are going to come up and you want to be able to dynamically display whatever piece of information is going to be relevant at that time - and that’s what PhotoPresenter is all about. […] This is just absolutely the perfect app for that sort of thing."

Get Right to the Point With PhotoPresenter 2 for iOS

Puchheim, Germany – September 30, 2013 – PhotoPresenter for iOS (more info) has been making its way into the App Store Top 10 in a number of countries since it launched just a week ago – and now, Boinx is adding even more awesome features to the simple yet powerful photo presenting app. PhotoPresenter 2 for iOS now includes two ways to direct audience attention to a specific point in your media: the Laser Pointer tool and a Mouseposé mode. Using the Laser Pointer, users simply tap a finger to the desired area they want to point out on their device, causing a blue "laser pointer" to appear on the big screen in the exact spot. Switch to Mouseposé mode and a spotlight appears, dimming the rest of the photo except for the highlighted area. PhotoPresenter 2 for iOS is also now iOS 7 compatible, offering a sleek and fresh new look for Apple’s brand new operating system. Watch the video.

What’s Everyone Saying About PhotoPresenter for iOS?

"I can see this being very handy for on-the-fly presentations. If you are using AirPlay you want to be in the mirroring mode. Even if you don't do presentations, the app is great for impromptu photo sharing. You probably won't want everything on your camera roll on the big screen, so you can pick and choose without anxiety. […] Other than that, PhotoPresenter is a very good idea at a very low price. I'm going to find a lot of uses for it, and you may too. Boinx has a lot of experience at dealing with photo apps such as FotoMagico 4 and TV production software like BoinxTV." – Mel Martin, TUAW

"PhotoPresenter does a bang-up job of doing exactly what it promises, so how much utility you receive from the app ultimately comes down to whether or not its decidedly narrow feature set seems worth $1.99. We think it is." – J.R. Bookwalter, MacLife

Tell, But Don’t Show All, With PhotoPresenter for iOS

Munich, Germany – September 9, 2013 – With hundreds of photos and videos saved in your iPhone or iPad’s media library, it’s likely that, when showing these images to a specific group, there are many files you’d like to keep out of the presentation. Enter PhotoPresenter for iOS from Boinx Software. A brand new iOS app from the creative developer, PhotoPresenter is perfect for the ad hoc show-and-tell session. Users need only to hook an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to an HDTV set or a projector with HDMI or VGA, or via AirPlay. They then browse the device’s photo library to find the media they want to display and click on the image or video to display it on the second screen. The audience sees only the image or video selected - nothing else - keeping the presenter’s personal media personal. Presenters can jump freely between media files, allowing them to show images on the fly without being restricted to any particular order. Have multiple images of the same subject matter and want to select the best one? There’s a preview mode for that.

"Bastian, our video guru, recently hosted a Boinx workshop. During his presentation, he decided to put together a slideshow that showcased people using Boinx’s iStopMotion. All of the media was located on his smartphone, so this should have been a breeze," recalls Oliver Breidenbach, CEO and co-founder of Boinx Software. "However, every app he tried pulled in personal photos and videos that he did not want to share with the group. After a bit of research, we found that no app allowed you to create a slideshow on the fly and control the media that is presented, and the idea for PhotoPresenter was born."

PhotoPresenter for iOS is an app that can be used in many different scenarios. Regardless of whether it’s used for professional or personal reasons, it’s a great app many will find useful. Some hypothetical situations include:

• You recently went on a great holiday with your closest friends, and your grandparents would like to see some of the photos you took of the beautiful location. There were certainly some photos you’d prefer they didn’t see.

• You are showing your portfolio to a client or potential employer. You’ll need to choose specific photos and/or videos for them to view, and want to put your very best work on display.

• Imagine working with your team on creative concepts. An enthusiastic discussion keeps you jumping back and forth from one media file to the other; not being limited to a specific slideshow order is an invaluable creative tool that helps keep the discussion and ideas flowing.
