TechSmith releases Camtasia Studio 3

TechSmith’s Camtasia Studio 3 is a screen capture and recording solution for individuals creating on-demand demonstrations, presentations or screencasts of Windows computer screens. This latest release allows users to include a video of a presenter as a PIP window in the presentation.

Camtasia Studio is the defactor screen recording solution for Windows PCs. (On OS X Snapz Pro X is the defacto standard, although not yet as sophisticated as Camtasia Studio.)

Camtasia Studio automatically records exactly what a user sees on a computer screen, what they say, and how they interact with any application or Web site on a Windows desktop. Users can then edit and share the demonstrations online or via fixed media in all popular streaming media formats, including Flash (SWF).

A full list of What’s New in addition to the Live Video capture is available on the website, but highlights include

  • Automated publishing using production wizards;
  • Quizzing tools to assess learning with multiple-choice quizzes with answers reported back to SCORM-compliant Learning Management Systems;
  • Interactive Callouts for interactive navigation.

Camtasia Studio 3 requires Windows 2000 or Windows XP with DirectX 9 or later. It’s available now for US$299. A 30 day trial is available.
