Mac users can rejoice–at last–in an AV software program compatible with Macintosh hardware. For the first time, Hitachi Software Engineering America is addressing the increase of Mac users in the AV world with the introduction of StarBoard Software 9.0 for Mac, which works with its electronic white boards.

Hitachi StarBoard Software 9.0 for Mac offers similar functionality as its Windows counterpart, plus some additional features. For example, the new Live Desktop Mode allows users to write on YouTube videos or any computer-based animation without having to take screen shots or freeze frames. Users can also drag-and-drop tools from the toolbar onto a page for a more customizable interface, and FX DUO board users can perform multitouch gestures, such as pinching, to rotate and resize images.

"The Hitachi StarBoard Software 9.0 is the result of extensive feedback from our customer base," says Akira Nagamori, director of Hitachi Software. "In launching this platform, [we're providing] users with an easy-to-use and navigate, comprehensive toolset for interactive, immersive use."
