Introduction to Profiles
A profile consists of settings that determine how a presentation is recorded, processed, and presented.
To access information on profiles available to you, log in to the Camtasia Relay website, go to Profiles > My Profiles, and then click a profile in the table.
Only Camtasia Relay administrators can create or modify profiles.
If you are not satisfied with existing profile options, you can select the Upload and Decide Later Profile. This sends the recording to the server where it remains until you contact your Camtasia Relay administrator to create or modify a profile.
Settings included in a profile:
Description: What should you use this profile for? The description is entered by an administrator to help you to choose the correct profile for your needs.
Publish destinations: Where do produced files go? Presentations can be published to one or more destinations. Examples include an FTP server, a network drive, Screencast.com, or iTunes U.
- Account: Some profiles use a default account, which tells Camtasia Relay to use one set of login credentials, and publish to a certain folder within, while others use the presenter account, which asks users to provide and log in with their own credentials. For example, If an administrator wanted all presentations to go to one Screencast.com account, but different folders within that account, they would likely select the default account. However, if they would prefer that presenters publish to their own Screencast.com accounts, they would select the presenter account.
Encode settings: What kind of files are produced? The original recording is encoded into one or more formats. Examples include an audio only (MP3) encoding, an iPod-compatible encoding, or Windows Media format. Encoding can reduce the frame rate and audio quality, but can never improve the original recording.
Notifications: How are people informed when presentations are published? Notifications are sent per profile and can include information about multiple encodings of the same presentation.
Publish accounts: How are publish destinations accessed? These accounts contain specific information used to place processed presentations in a publish destination, such as authentication information, folder selection, etc.
