Camtasia 2019 offers new functionality that empowers anyone to create digital media to teach, train, and explain concepts through video.
Troy Stein, Senior Director of Camtasia noted that this version of Camtasia was heavily influenced by requests from Camtasia users.
“We receive great feedback from our customers and our goal is always to address as much feedback as possible with each new release,” he said. “We’re incredibly proud to say that Camtasia 2019 includes more than 80 percent of the most popular feature and improvement requests from our users.”
Stein also said these new features bring Camtasia to a new level of productivity, whether you’re a video novice or seasoned veteran.
“Camtasia has always optimized the creation of professional content with minimal effort. We also provide expert training resources and unmatched customer support to help those with little or no experience in making videos. Camtasia 2019 has built on that and made video creation easier than ever,” he said. “But even if you’ve been making videos for years, you’ll find this new version gives you more flexibility and more tools to make your videos even faster than before.”

With the release of Camtasia 2019, TechSmith has committed to a more regular and predictable cadence for releasing new versions. With that commitment, TechSmith is adding additional value to their Maintenance agreements.
The Camtasia Maintenance agreement allows customers to add a one-year agreement to their Camtasia license that provides them with an upgrade to the next version of Camtasia when released in 2020, unmatched priority technical support from TechSmith’s expert support team, and the opportunity to become a certified Camtasia user through an on-demand Camtasia certification course.
