    Useful for my Mac computer! Lets me choose which part of my screen I want to capture for recording. The interface is really simple and pretty straightforward. Beginners won't get confused using this for the first time. Awesome software!!

DID YOU KNOW?

The first videotape recorders released back in 1951? Ampex Corporation was behind it with Charles Ginsburg and his research team. Film was the primary medium in the early days of video recording? Magnetic tape was an alternative but it was already used for sound though. TV signal carried large amounts of information and the was a need for a better medium for it. Videotape cassettes then arrived in 1976 by both JVC and Panasonic. Digital camera technology was further developed. Sony then demoed the Mavica, a single-lens reflex (SLR) camera in 1981.

Kodak released the DC40 that helped introduce digital photography to the public. Since then, Digital SLR and mirrorless cameras have poured out in the market. They produce high-quality images and record videos as well. Video streaming has become quite popular nowadays. You only need your smartphone camera and some apps to record videos and share them online. What if you want to record what on your screen then? This is where screen recorders come in. There are plenty of screen recorders for PCs as well as smartphones. Some come without time limits or watermarks. Some you need to pay a small price for. Regardless, recording, whether live or on-screen, has neven been easier.
