SlideShark Lets Mobile Users Broadcast Their Presentations Live, Over the Web

SlideShark Lets Mobile Users Broadcast Their Presentations Live, Over the Web Credit: Slideshark

With the latest release of SlideShark (v3.0) comes a major, new capability that benefits mobile presenters and meeting attendees (whether in-person or remote) alike. SlideShark Broadcasting lets presenters “broadcast” their presentations live over the Web using their iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, and invite others to view them.

Meeting attendees, whether across the table or across the globe, click a link to see the presentation in real time. They can view the presentation from their Web browser on any computer, smartphone or tablet – no downloads required – seeing slides as they’re advanced, animations as they unfold, drawings and annotations made by the presenter and more. So for anyone who can’t join the meeting in person, it’s easy to get looped in. And as for meeting attendees who are there in person – there’s no need to strain to see the screen, as they can now easily follow along on their own device.

Presenters get to control when and how the content is delivered, and broadcast their presentations securely. When someone enters or exits the broadcast, the presenter receives visual alerts. And at the meeting’s conclusion, presenters get detailed reports on audience attendance and viewing activity, and data on the broadcast meeting itself – including how long it lasted, which presentation(s) and slides were shown, and how much time was spent on each slide. These reports are a great help in post-meeting follow-up activity. This two-minute demo (https://www.brainshark.com/brainsharkinc/broadcasting) shows how easy and powerful it is to use SlideShark’s new broadcasting capabilities.

SlideShark is an iOS app. It lets users view and present PowerPoints from the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch with fonts, animations, graphics, hyperlinks and videos intact – something not possible prior to the app’s launch. With more than 30 million PowerPoint presentations created every day, per Microsoft, this had been a big problem. And in solving it, SlideShark has won over corporate and individual users in more than 140 countries. The app has nearly 1.5 million downloads (2 downloads/min., 24x7) and is a top “Productivity App” in Apple’s App Store.

The latest version of SlideShark contains a major, new capability: SlideShark Broadcasting.
