Screen capture and video editing software vendor TechSmith has updated its Snagit screen recording application with support and functionality for remote and hybrid working environments.
Wendy Hamilton, CEO at TechSmith, noted that staff typically need support even when they can’t “look over each other’s shoulders” to ask questions or solve problems.
“We’ve streamlined the workflows in Snagit, especially its cloud integration, and optimised video functions and its options for cross-platform use,” she said.
As a result, users could now use Snagit anywhere to access their files on a PC or Mac when using the screen capture technology, whether they’re working on their office PC or sitting at home with their laptop, Hamilton confirmed.
Snagit’s functions and features now more closely resemble each other across the Mac and Windows operating systems — including using the new .snagx file format across both Windows and Mac, the vendor added.
TechSmith is also focusing on Snagit 2022 improvements to the picture-in-picture recording function for capturing screen and webcam outputs together, and its ability to store Snagit library content in the cloud.
Users can access captures and projects from different devices for reuse. Cloud services supported include Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive and Box.
The vendor has also “reworked” Snagit’s onboarding tips.
According to TechSmith, visual media can vastly improve engagement and learning for in-house teams and external communications.
