Streaming video technologist Hypnotizer has released hypnotizer.editor, the creative component of the company’s Interactive Streaming Suite. The editor allows streaming video to be overlaid with interactive elements.
Based on a conventional WYSIWYG Web design tool, the editor allows clickable icons, pull-down menus, logos, banners and text to be placed on or in video streams. It is aimed at Web designers and can work with any of the three main streaming formats – RealVideo, QuickTime or Windows Media.
The other elements of the Interactive Streaming Suite are the hypnotizer.player, a free downloadable plug-in, and the hypnotizer.server, which sits alongside the video server to deliver the interactive elements.
The hypnotizer.editor costs $390 (around £265).
