Wistia has launched Soapbox, the first, free, browser-based screen and webcam recording solution that removes all technical barriers to making high-quality, creative videos to communicate at work. Time is precious and professionals working in sales, marketing, customer support, human resources, and other business areas are actively seeking better ways to communicate that make an immediate, accurate, and lasting connection.

Soapbox runs entirely in the cloud, reducing processing time and its impact on a computer's usability during the typical save and export process. Additionally, Soapbox is OS-agnostic, working seamlessly on any computer capable of running Chrome. Edited videos are immediately shareable via a live link, reducing the time associated with exporting and uploading to third-party video hosting platforms.

Features of Soapbox at launch include:

- Dual-Stream Recording: Soapbox records the webcam and screen on separate streams, enabling easy switches between the two in editing to maximize flow and focus.

- Split-Screen View: No more picture-in-picture, instead, Soapbox features a split-screen view, enabling better focus on both the webcam and screen. - Easy Transitions and Trimming: Switch back and forth between webcam, screen capture, and the side-by-side view with smooth transitions in Soapbox, no additional software needed. Then trim the start and the end of your video to keep things crisp.

- Natural Presenting: Avoid getting distracted by a feed of your own face with markers to line up with the camera instead of live monitoring. - Content Customization: Everything from the thumbnail, to the player color, to the closing call to action is customizable in Soapbox. Standout and stay on brand. - Seamless Sharing: Share your video via a thumbnail in Gmail and Outlook or on a clean page via a link.
