TrueScreen Technology

Last modified on May 22, 2024


Many web sites are now built by using multiple layers of a dynamic media platform – Flash. The TrueScreen technology by AlertSite tracks and monitors all user actions performed over Flash objects.

The special features of the TrueScreen technology include:

  • Full support for Ajax-based applications.

  • Recording and monitoring all user actions over Flash media, including clicks, dragging, keystrokes and mouseovers.

If you do not monitor your dynamic content, you may miss important information about the overall performance of your website application.
