CyberLink Corp. today announced the release of Screen Recorder 4, the all-in-one screen recording software for recording, streaming and editing gameplay. The new version provides support for multistreaming, chroma key and customized overlay effects. It allows gamers, vloggers and business users to expand their reach by streaming to multiple online services simultaneously while also adding fun, dynamic effects to their live events.
Limiting users’ streaming to a single service severely restricts the exposure and earning potential of online gamers and streamers. In a recent survey of CyberLink Screen Recorder users, 42% of gamers indicated they prefer to stream via Youtube, while 34% prefer using Twitch. With over 75% of the gaming population using these two platforms, multistreaming provides an effective means to increase their viewer base. Screen Recorder 4 makes it possible to stream on up to five different platforms in real-time. Streamers can broadcast simultaneously to Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, and two custom RTMP servers, unlocking the potential of reaching larger audiences with a single stream.“Livestreaming is an integral part of the modern lifestyle. Gamers, vloggers, and commercial users can stream any range of events to an online audience, from livestream gameplay, to conducting online business training and eLearning business. We want to provide an all-in-one solution with powerful multistreaming capabilities that meet the needs of online broadcasters,” said Dr. Jau Huang, CEO of CyberLink. “Screen Recorder 4 caters to the millions of gamers, vloggers and aspiring social media sensations around the world, allowing users to easily share their content through multiple platforms and custom servers simultaneously.”Add a comment
Kingston Digital, Inc., the Flash memory affiliate of Kingston Technology Company, Inc., a world leader in memory products and technology solutions, has added new features to its recent Cyber Defense 2018 Global Awards winning IronKey D300 encrypted USB Flash drive to improve device management and security. IronKey D300 is FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified and uses 256-bit AES hardware-based encryption in XTS mode. Shipping next week, a new Serialized version (D300S) with two new features will further enhance the drive’s already advanced level of security to safeguard sensitive data.
IronKey D300S will have a unique serial number and bar code on the drive itself, allowing network administrators to simply read or scan the code instead of plugging in the drive. When a drive is deployed, returned or during any physical auditing or asset management of hardware, this feature will make the process more efficient and streamlined. The second feature, a virtual keyboard, enables users to enter a password with clicks of the mouse instead of using a physical keyboard, thereby providing a greater level of protection against any possible keylogging when using D300S on other computers.Add a comment
