One of the wonderful people I met walking around the floor were the folks from TechSmith. For those of you who have not heard of TechSmith they are a software company that creates screen capture and recording tools, that are simply great. In fact most of the screen casts we do on the TechNet team are done using their Camtasia product, it is a great little tool!
So when I saw there area I decided to stop in and say hello. Also wanted to see what new projects do they have in the works. I learned about a great new little tool call Jing. The concept of Jing is that it instantly captures and shares images and video…from your computer to anywhere. I like to think of it as snip-it on steroids. Take a look at the quick demo from Tony a Project Manager with TechSmith!
