OPTX International Releases New Classroom Edition

ScreenWatch™ Click and Stream™ Wizard helps professors reach more students onsite or via distance education.
Chico, Ca(10/28/2001) -

OPTX International's ScreenWatch? Software rewrites the course for university on-line education by helping professors reach more students onsite or via distance education. Classroom Edition contains everything educators need to simply record and publish lectures and presentations to the Internet, intranets, or CD-ROMs. The Classroom Edition is powerful and easy-to-use communications software from OPTX, the leader in workplace communications technology.

ScreenWatch is accepted in university classrooms worldwide. "With ScreenWatch, distance education courses can be produced in any classroom," comments Robert Britton with over 30 years experience as a college professor in California. "I don't use a special studio classroom or any auxiliary personnel. It's cost effective. ScreenWatch is beneficial because it makes my courses available for distance education. While there are advantages to attending live classes, there are advantages to accessing archived information that is provided via the Internet, intranet, or saved on CD-ROMS. People learn in different ways. There are students who need to watch lectures more than once or miss important information in their notes. Now they can revisit lectures on-demand with the help of ScreenWatch recordings. I foresee the day when textbook authors will include a set of their lectures recorded on CD-ROMs. Like me, they will use ScreenWatch because it is such an easy to use system."

"What makes this possible is ScreenWatch software's new Click and Stream? Wizard," explains Jerry Anderson, senior vice president of OPTX. This wizard takes educators step-by-step through the simple recording process. ScreenWatch blends screen capture, audio, video, whiteboard, and streaming functions. This software publishes presentations in one step, and its Producer launches the advanced mimio whiteboard system, PowerPoint, Corel Presenter, and STAR Office Presenter. " With ScreenWatch, educators are no longer mired in production details," adds Anderson.

Classroom Edition contains a microphone, mimio system for whiteboards, RealProducer, a ScreenWatch recorder and CD-ROM kit, and a USB video capture device. "There's everything educators need to set up in minutes. It's the solution for instructors who capture computer activity during classroom presentations for playback and streaming," adds Anderson. "Anybody can use ScreenWatch even on a laptop computer-that's the beauty of this software."

ScreenWatch uses low bandwidth, its images are true to source, students can observe real-time interaction with any computer application. ScreenWatch is the only screen capture software that supports Windows and Unix systems, and Real Media and Windows streaming technologies. ScreenWatch supports RealServer on Linux, SolarisTM, and HP-UX as well as Windows 2000 and Windows NT systems. ScreenWatch is the only software that can playback screen capture on Sun and Linux desktops.

OPTX serves organizations requiring high-quality screen recording and playback for workplace communications, training, and education. Harvard Business School, Stanford University, the University of Maryland, U.S. Navy, National Medical Library, Tivoli Systems, and Novell have adopted ScreenWatch. ScreenWatch is distributed worldwide. Visit www.screenwatch.com, call 530/899-2100 or e-mail sales@optx.com.
