A test of screen recording systems
Karl Fast has made a thorough test of three screen recording systems to decide which is most suitable in usability testing settings.

His conclusions:
"ScreenCam had the best performance of any program tested, but the lack of support for Windows 2000 and XP makes it hard to recommend."

"Camtasia offers the best blend of performance, features, and ease of use among the programs tested." "The only drawback is price, but at $150 itís still within the range of almost every budget. Highly recommended."

"My first impression of HyperCam was that for $30 I was getting what I paid for. But once I fiddled with it and found the "secret" of using Camtasiaís TSCC codec, I was entirely satisfied. Unless you need the extra features of Camtasia, HyperCam will probably do the job..."
