Camtasia Relay Pricing

What are simultaneous encodings?
When one presentation is produced into three formats—say, web, iPod, and Windows Media Video—it results in three encoding jobs for the server. A three-encoding server would work on all three jobs at the same time, while a single-encoding server would do one at a time.
So all other things being equal, a three-encoding server can process about 3X more presentations in a day than a single encoding server. The actual number of presentations processed per day depends on variables such as presentation duration, type of content recorded, type and number of formats selected, and server specs such as processor and RAM.
With the flexible pricing of Camtasia Relay, you can start with a single encoding license and move up on your schedule.
