    Thanks for the heads up!

    This name reminds me of the time I spent watching the Netflix series Sense8. There was a character in that series that was named "Nomi". I believe it meant: Know Me.

    Curious about the name here and the decisions as to the name. I get that Know is related to the teaching aspect. But I find myself a bit baffled at the mia part.

    The word "mia" means "mine" in Latin and Italian.

    So Knowmia loosely stands for "my knowledge", which goes with TechSmith's tagline of "Show what you know".

    Hope that helps!

    Cool beans!

    I'm not sure why, but things like that give me brain itches and it's fascinating. LOL

    Danny, where did the Camtasia name come from?

    Before I answer, I must point out that the year was 1999....
    it's a combination of "Camera" and "Fantasia" because it sounded 'cool' at the time.

    (at least, according to TechSmith Lore, as this was before I joined in 2002)

    It's not bad. Some TS Product names (snagit, Coach's eye, Relay) are arguably straightforward and some (Camtasia, Morae, Knowmia) are a bit more abstract and invite these questions.

    So I think one of the questions I have from skimming over the Knowmia pages is: is there a breakdown of the feature-set of Individual vs. Enterprise? 

    Is TechSmith offering individual users the same set of features that came to Relay/Knowmia users, it's just that Sales has to design a contract price to account for volume discounting?

    As Camtasia's progenitor seems to be SnagIt, the Camtasia name seems rather appropriate to me.

    There are several additional capabilities for Knowmia Enterprise over Knowmia Pro (for individuals). These can be found on our Knowmia FAQ page.

    Also will post that info here for ease:

    Why upgrade to Enterprise?

    Knowmia Enterprise offers all the great features of Knowmia Pro, but adds even more capabilities that help make using Knowmia an even better experience for a larger team, or an entire educational institution or workplace.

    Some of these additional capabilities include:

    • Single Sign-On (SSO)
    • Admin controls
    • Additional privacy and security options
    • LTI integration with several LMS’s (ie. Canvas, Blackboard, Moodle, D2L)
    • Zoom integration
    • Integration with transcription services (ie. 3Play and Verbit)
    • Dedicated Customer Success Manager and on-boarding
