Apple Design Award winning live video production “broadcast truck without the truck” software is gearing up for the 2011 back to school season with classrooms and schools all over the country. As more and more educators strive to integrate technology into the classroom, BoinxTV has quickly become a fan favorite among students and teachers alike for its user-friendly workflow and engaging video production capabilities. From creating a school news show, to broadcasting school events, conducting live interviews, or even making a full documentary, BoinxTV makes classroom projects more vivid and exciting, resulting in higher retention rates and increased student participation. “The BoinxTV application is like having a TV studio in the classroom,” says Peter Goetz, Kentfield Schools. “The look, feel, and results are very professional, and the students fall right into their roles as engineer, writer, director, pundit, or special guest. Whether filming high-resolution videos or broadcasting a news show to a uStream audience, this is a classy and cost-effective way to do realistic media production with teenagers.” Take a quick tour of BoinxTV here:
