Chosen Due to Simple, Flexible and Affordable Campus-Wide Deployment
OKEMOS, Mich – January 6, 2010 – TechSmith Corp., the world’s leading provider of screen capture and recording solutions, announced today the University of California, Irvine (UC Irvine) has selected Camtasia Relay as its campus-wide lecture capture solution. By integrating with an academic institution, business or conference organizer’s existing media servers and learning management systems, Camtasia Relay is an affordable solution for organizations looking to share knowledge in a multimedia format with students, customers and colleagues department-wide or campus-wide.
"We were looking for a lecture capture solution that was affordable and simple to deploy campus-wide. Camtasia Relay fit those needs while also providing us with a solution that goes far beyond simple classroom capture," said Dr. Stephen D. Franklin, Director of Academic Outreach, Office of Information Technology (http://oit.uci.edu/) at University of California Irvine. "With the help of TechSmith’s excellent customer support, our IT department is able to offer an easy-to-use solution that enables faculty to record and share various types of presentations, tutorials and lectures anytime and anywhere."
Using the name "UCI Replay" and the website http://replay.uci.edu, UC Irvine deployed Camtasia Relay this fall as an enterprise-wide solution that allows the over 10,300 faculty and staff to streamline their lecture recording and sharing processes while giving the 27,000 student population access to the many learning benefits of Camtasia Relay captured presentations.
"We are proud that such a topnotch university has chosen Camtasia Relay for its lecture capture solution," said Camtasia Relay product manager Rich Boys. "We look forward to continuing to collaborate with innovative higher education customers, like UCI, to provide faculty with easy-to-use solutions that help them enhance learning onsite and off campus."
Camtasia Relay is designed so instructors and presenters can easily record live lectures, learning objects, or presentations and publish them automatically so the videos are available in the highest-quality formats for a broad audience. Users can also edit their captured lectures and presentations with Camtasia Studio, which is already used by thousands in the education community.
With Camtasia Relay, instructors and presenters can use any PC or Mac in the classroom or conference room, at their desk, or at home. Audiences can view and listen to the recorded lectures and presentations online, via learning management systems like Blackboard, via iTunes U, or on mobile devices such as the iPod or iPhone. And with LDAP integration, IT staff can quickly and easily set up and assign recording profiles for their organizations based on the needs of the presenter and their audience.
