I received an email, a Press Release actually, for iDive and after checking it out on the website, I have to say it looks very cool. You can catalogue your digital video and still content, get a poster frame view of what you have within each video recording, tag things by people or places and even move frames and pictures over to iPhoto for still capture. Of course you can also use it for pulling feeds into Final Cut or iMovie. Here’s a clip from the release…

MONTPELLIER, FRANCE – 21 JUNE 2004 : A new Mac OS X application just released is set to redefine the standards in managing digital video (DV) clips. This new product called iDive™ offers semi-professional users a robust on-screen digital video shoebox to store clips and still images. The application includes truly innovative tools that make navigation both easy and fast, regardless of the number of clips being stored. Power previewing, customizable views, “drag & drop” attribute tagging and a timeline display turn any assortment of disorganised tapes into an instantly accessible library of digital video that can be enjoyed at any time. Designed to sit alongside DV editing applications, iDive promises to eliminate the frustration and time-wasting in locating and viewing clips hidden amongst hours of footage, by simplifying visualisation, tagging, storage, organisation and retrieval of digital video clips and photos.

  1. I am still looking for a program with your capabilities for windows editing. Do you have any plans to provide iDive in anything other than Apple?
