Eline Technologies has released VideoClix 2.0, its updated application for interactive video-authoring.

It’s a software solution for creating interactive video presentations for the Web, CD, and DVD ROMs.

The Mac OS 9.x and OS X-compatible application allows content producers to build interactive objects into their video. This means viewers can get feedback and further information by clicking on actual objects in the footage.

Feature-packed New features in version 2.0 include new click, rollover, and-time triggered Actions; messaging for third party application support; HTML-independent interactivity; faster object tracking; special effects; and OS X support. The upgrade supports MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, AVI, Flash, and DV formats.

VideoClix 2.0 supports click-&-drag, and lets interactive elements be added to video without scripting. The results can be served from any HTTP server. The application can tie into any database, and needs no additional plug-in component to play. VideoClix-enabled content can also provide viewer statistics.

The application costs $499. MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 support will be ineffective pending the release of QuickTime 6.
