First, thank you to Mashable.com 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.
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.
