Vitamin D Video 1.0 is now availableFebruary 8th, 2010 by Rob Haitani
I’m pleased to announce we have released version 1.0 of Vitamin D Video. For those who missed my previous blog on pricing, we are offering three versions:
- The Starter Edition is free. It has all of the functionality of the Beta release, but is limited to one camera configured per computer. If you switch from a beta version to the Starter Edition, all previously recorded video will be saved, but moving forward you can only have one camera set up at a time.
- The Basic Edition is $49, and supports two cameras per computer. In addition, in this version you can save and view video in VGA (640 x 480) resolution. This could be the best choice for older or low-powered machines (geekspeak translation: single-core processors probably won’t handle more than two cameras anyway).
- The Pro Edition is $199 and gives you the same functionality as the Basic Edition but with no limit on cameras. Or more specifically, you can run as many cameras as your PC can handle. Roughly speaking, Vitamin D Video can run 2 cameras per core, or 1.5 cameras if you want to use other applications. For example, a quad-core machine, should run eight cameras, but if you want to use it while the cameras are running it probably caps out round six cameras.
If you are a residential customer you could save money depending on how many computers you have. For example, if you want to use four cameras and have two computers, you could buy two Basic versions for a total of $98. Over time we will add more functionality to the Basic and Pro Editions, and plan to continue to provide the Starter Edition for free.
Last but not least, I’m pleased to announce a contest to give away a free iPad! We are looking for video clips of real-life cases where Vitamin D Video helped you find something valuable (or funny). Vitamin D will select the finalists and you can vote for the winner. Details can be found here.
Thank you all for your support and feedback during the Beta period!
