TechSmith's Hub for Experimental Innovation

Welcome to TechSmith Labs – the home for temporary trials, wacky experiments, and maybe TechSmith's next best thing. Check below for our latest experiments and let us know what you think! Input from our customers is what makes every TechSmith project great; just don't get too attached. While these experiments may be cool, keep in mind that they're experiments – they may morph into other ideas, turn into products, or discreetly disappear forever. Your feedback helps us determine the next phase – so check them out and let us know what you think.

What is TechSmith Labs anyway?

If TechSmith had a league of mad scientists, this would be their laboratory. Actually, we do have mad scientists. They’re called developers – and they have a lot of crazy and useful ideas they’d like to bring your way. TechSmith Labs is the place where we shine the spotlight on some of the more promising prototypes.

What is the difference between a TechSmith “innovation” and an “experiment”?

Any innovation (or product) TechSmith releases has to meet very high quality standards and will undergo rounds and rounds of user testing and tweaking to get it just right. TechSmith Labs 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.

Do I have to pay for these Labs experiments?

Because these projects are classified as “work-in-progress”, we will not charge for them while they are in Labs. There may be a fee in the future if they become products or innovations.

Will all these “experiments” be “innovations” one day?

No. Some projects will make the cut, but others will become parts of other products. Some will only exist for a short time, just to prove that a piece of functionality works. Others will be excellent fodder for our Recycle bin. You can help influence the future of your favorite experiments by letting us know what you think. We can’t promise to implement every idea that’s proposed, but know that your feedback will undergo consideration from the developers that helped create it.

Can I get technical support?

No, and yes. While TechSmith Labs projects don’t have phone and online tech support like our products do, we do have an online feedback community that you can post your questions to. Other users may help answer your question, a TechSmith developer or two may weigh in… you never know.

Will experiments be available in other languages?

For now, our experiments are only available to English-speaking users.
 

How do I submit my bright idea to TechSmith Labs?

Post your idea to our feedback community and we’ll give it some thought. And don’t forget to check on your post later to see if our team has questions about your idea.
