Okemos-based TechSmith Corp., the world’s leading provider of screen capture and screen recording software, today announced the release of Snagit on the Mac and Camtasia Relay 3.
The new version of Camtasia Relay, a streamlined presentation capture system, includes additional functionality and enhancements in several aspects, including captioning and video editing.
Meanwhile, the Snagit on Mac public beta first released in December 2009 and quickly expanded to more than 100,000 users validating, testing and providing feedback. As a result, Snagit on Mac was designed from the ground up, with features including: All-in-One style screen capture, output to a free storage account on Screencast.com and the ability to save custom effects and callouts. With Snagit on Mac, users can add visuals to text communication, annotate or mark up images, use pictures to help explain tasks and capture content from desktop and web applications.
“For years, the number one enhancement requested by Snagit users was availability on the Mac platform,” said Tiffany Wood, Snagit Product Manager. “Today, with global support from the Snagit user community, we’re answering their call. Snagit is now the only screen capture solution available worldwide on both Windows and Mac operating systems.”
Released on Windows in 1991, Snagit has more than seven million users worldwide. A license of the most current version, Snagit 10, also entitles existing users to a free copy of Snagit on Mac. New users also pay just one price for a license of Snagit on Windows and Mac — $49.95.

As for Camtasia Relay, it’s designed to simplify the process of recording and distributing presentations and lectures across organizations. Its flexible recorder makes it easy for anyone to create content, wherever they are. Camtasia Relay’s powerful server can produce and publish videos to many people in formats that work best for them.
Camtasia Relay 3 saves a tremendous amount of time and money by automatically transcribing recorded audio to create captions. Previous methods of captioning included outsourcing to expensive and time-consuming third parties. With captioning requirements frequently tightening, TechSmith identified the need in the market to provide a simple, cost effective way to caption video content. This is now possible through Camtasia Relay 3, which generates captions through speech-to-text transcription and also has a built-in caption editor for the content creator to make corrections to any inaccuracies.
ithin education, the benefits are numerous. Not only can lecture capture aid in reviewing class content, but also aids in creating reusable class materials and further support hard of hearing students.
Camtasia Relay 3 allows for additional flexibility on how and where viewers are able to consume content through improved search and new production and publishing options. Key additions in this area are a production preset for the iPad, as well as new publishing destinations to Sonic Foundry Mediasite. The integration allows automated ingestion, cataloging and management of Camtasia Relay content within Mediasite’s centrally managed, scalable and secure knowledge library.
TechSmith also says there’s a new, streamlined way that Camtasia Relay integrates with Camtasia Studio and Camtasia for Mac in order to support video creation without compromising quality. Camtasia Studio and Camtasia for Mac can now be used to edit beyond trimming or add further polish to videos. Camtasia Relay 3 will now come with a complementary license of Camtasia Studio and Camtasia for Mac, for those that want to be able to easily add more engaging and professional polish to their videos.
