The component is compatible with most commonly used languages, including C#, Delphi, VB, or VBScript.
More-so, the development kit includes several samples that can be employed to assess the power of the final product.
The screen recorder can save all desktop activity to a local multimedia file of MP4, SWF, FLV, AVI or WMV format.
Recording the mouse activity is supported and various default magnification levels can be hardcoded into the final program.
What's more, developers are free to configure quality settings for each type of output format, including resolution values and the codecs employed.
