Video Screen Capture

When working on complex team projects, effective communication is key and ensures deliverables are completed on time. Video capture software is a simple way for teams in sales, marketing or customer support to work more closely together and save time by using video to collaborate instead of exchanging lengthy emails or trying to interpret annotated edits. Teams further increase efficiency by saving files directly to the cloud or integrating CloudApp directly into their favorite workflow app, web-based software or web service.

Unique Content With Video Capture Software

Now more than ever, people are flooded with inordinate amounts of content. In order to effectively reach and resonate with potential customers and clients, you must cut through the noise. CloudApp’s video capture software brings personality and authenticity to your marketing materials by allowing you to capture and record streaming video and present your product visually. Use it to share content directly from your desktop screen or create custom videos.  

Simple Video Cloud Management

Sharing video, especially large files, can be time consuming and simply, a hassle. CloudApp’s video screen capture app connects directly to the cloud and automatically saves recorded video without going through a secondary platform. Leave uploading and downloading behind you. Once you use video capture to create a file, a link is automatically copied to your personal clipboard, ready for sharing – no additional steps needed.
