PLAYA VISTA, Calif., Jan. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Belkin, a trusted leader of technology solutions for classroom, office, IT infrastructure, and mobile environments, announced today it will launch the newest version of its transformative, easy-to-use video production platform Stage Pro – Stage Pro version 3.0 – for iPhone at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) beginning January 6 in Las Vegas.

Belkin's Stage and Stage Pro Apps have already changed the way consumers create and share video, allowing anyone to produce quality, collaborative and annotated videos – already surpassing more than 1 million downloads on iPad alone (Source: Apple iTunes Connect, Stage + Stage Pro app). As an ideal tool for documenting or creating presentations, Stage Pro is a high-valued classroom teaching and learning asset and ranked a top 100 Education app in more than 100 countries.

Mrs. Smith, an elementary school teacher at Cedar Grove Elementary School in Williamston, SC, highlighted the teaching value of Stage Pro in her DonorsChoose page:

"We live in a fast paced society and as educators we need to keep up with new teaching strategies and technology…[In my class, we] can make our work come alive on our STAGE! [StagePro] will allow us to use our iPads as a document camera and project items to our interactive board. The possibilities are endless with this tool....demonstrations with manipulatives, peer editing and sharing of student work, teacher modeling, interacting with different texts, and other activities that wouldn't allow for students to see as a class."

Previously, Stage Pro was only available for use in Tablet devices. Stage Pro v.3.0 is now optimized for iPhone or iPad. The app is available for free during CES through January 9th 2016 in the App Store.

"There is little debate that mobile devices and innovative apps can elevate the entire learning experience," said Jon Roepke, senior product manager, Business Division, Belkin International. "The success of Stage Pro has already proven its classroom value. But we're not done – we strive to ensure that teachers and students have the best possible resources and we're confident that Stage Pro will continue to enhance the way our classrooms function, our teachers teach and our students learn."
