You will be surprised at how fast you can start recording webinars once you have two computers and know a few tricks to get this done.
You will need to use your primary computer (pc or mac) to broadcast your webinar. If you are looking for a cheap webinar service to get started, then I recommend GoToWebinar by Citrix to avoid the inflated costs that other companies will charge. This company will allow you to accommodate up to 1000 participants on a webinar which is much more than what other webinar services have to offer. Never try to do this in a hurry as it will prove to be quite expensive. If you plan to have more than one webinar in a month, then GoToWebinars is an excellent solution for this. The best part is that they allow you to be able to test yourself by having practice webinars.
The other services that are offered by some webinar services does not guarantee me a clean recording, and this is one thing that I try to avoid. Recording in Camtasia is the best option. It does not give you the hassle that other recording services have with different files that are confusing and sometimes don’t work as well.
What you will need to do is open Camtasia on the computer that you will record on and ensure that the recording box is 640 X 480. This will allow you to broadcast on your primary computer and at the same time login as an attendee on the computer that you will record on. It is best to set the audio to manual input instead of automatic.
I have a tip for you as you record webinars that will help you to keep the echo and feedback down. You will need to get a cord from the electronic store that has a 1/80 jack on each end. After that you will need to plug one end into the microphone and the other end into the headset hole, and this will help you to have a continuous loop. When you do this, you will be able to able to talk as loud as you want and not get any feedback or echo while you record webinars. You do not have to record and edit it right away.
Your webinar will have to be resized to fit into the green recording box that you got from Camtasia. To have a professional webinar recording, simply hit the record button and watch the sound levels that appear.
You will then render it to the format you prefer: CD, web, and blog. Now you are set to go! That is all you need to know to make sure that you record webinars correctly
