Toolbox PRO 2.0
Native Skype integration
The PRO 2.0 release (expected July 2013) offers native Skype integration with a return call option next to the existing call option. Also a management tool for configuring audio and video is added. This allows the user to control audio and video input or return separately. With the new audio delay option users can easily adjust audio for the perfect synchronization.
Separate overlay for each Toolbox function
Showing relevant logos or graphics as an overlay has never been this easy. Prepare separate overlays for multiple sources, like a YouTube logo for YouTube content or a photo of a reporter that just submitted live footage for a news show.
Complete GUI redesign
The new design offers an even more intuitive user interface. There is no need for specific technical knowledge or training, the icon driven interface speaks for itself. For each function only the relevant configuration settings pop up, enabling a fast and easy workflow.
