Overview

Fuse is an application that is currently being developed by TechSmith for use with the Camtasia Relay server. Fuse records video from an iPad or iPhone and uploads it for automated encoding and publishing when settings have been configured for use with the Texas A&M University - Camtasia Relay Service. The Fuse application has been released by TechSmith as an experiment. In this case, TechSmith defines an experiment as:

TechSmith lab releases experiments that we create quickly, so you can try them quickly. TechSmith lab releases experiments that we create quickly, so you can try them quickly. They may be fun or really useful, but they may also be buggy or contain incomplete elements.  This is part of the fun because you get to weigh in on what you like or are irritated by.

The Fuse app requires a minimum of iOS 4.0 on the iPad.
