Look, No Webex!

By Nat Robinson on August 16, 2007

First, thank you to for including us in their online presentation tools round-up. We’re getting some great attention and we haven’t even launched yet!

Next, let’s talk about remote meetings. I present over the Web all the time, and up to this point I’ve been using WebEx. It works, but it can take a long time to load (“Less than one minute remaining,” anyone?) and it doesn’t handle multimedia very well. I usually end up stripping all of the videos, transitions, and animations out of my presentations because they don’t play well at all on my audience’s computers.

From day one we wanted SlideRocket to solve this issue, so we built in our own remote meeting functionality.

Remote Meeting Manager
SlideRocket lets me invite multiple attendees to view my presentation while I control it. There isn’t any client application or Java installation, instead SlideRocket works right from each audience member’s browser. Presentations load quickly and have full support for animations, transitions, videos, and even audio on each attendee’s computer.

As someone who hosts a lot of meetings, it’s a pleasure to present a rich media presentation online and know that everyone is having the same cinematic experience that I am.

    Will SlideRocket allow the user to record an audio narration that is played back during the show? In other words, can SR be used to create ‘self running’ presentations?

    I would love to see your platform allow applications to be controlled by voice commands, so it can be accessed and controlled via the Ultimate Mobile Device platform. See for more information.

    Yes, currently you can upload mp3s to play during slides and auto-advance on a timer or when the audio finishes. A later release will add integrated audio recording.

    As it stands, SlideRocket just from a “present on your own computer with killer effects” looks pretty darn nice. As someone who is a Keynote user, and who hates to strip out the fantastic photos and videos I’ve found to tell my tell, I am REALLY looking forward to using your services for remote presentation.

    Zip in the narrated component/audio recording, and you’ve nearly got the whole ball of whacks (for those in the know).

    The main gain to jailbreaking an i Phone five is the ability to turn it right into a Wi-Fi hotspot. Analysts and pundits were off the mark with that prediction, as instead Apple chose to release the i Phone 5C as a replacement for the i Phone 5, which in the past the company would have continued to sell at a $99 price point on contract. Beginning today Apple has begun accepting orders for unlocked GSM versions of the i Phone 5S via the firm’s online store.
