Introduction to Present.Me

On April 15, 2011, in Web Development, Railo, Miscellaneous, by Anuj Gakhar

For the past several months, I have been involved in the technical development of a new startup Present.Me. Simply put, PresentMe lets you share your slides with the world while recording your video at the same time. It uses your webcam to capture the audio/video stream and then puts it together with the slides and the end result is a nicely put presentation with you and your voice and your expressions. And it does not stop there. It also lets you stop and edit and go back during your recording session, so if for whatever reason, you wish to re-record all or a part of the video, you very well can.

I do not consider myself a good presenter by any means but I have given it a shot. I have tried to record a presentation sample. Here is how it looks like :-

I think it’s really easy to use and that can really be the game-changing thing about this site. Here is an interview with the main man behind the idea.

And yes, for those who are interested :-
The site runs on a Railo powered EC2 server instance. Happy to discuss further technical details (within my allowance) if anyone is interested to know.

    There are a variety of presentation tools available on the web that have focused on delivering information in bite sized chunks, and making things more consumable and easy for us to understand online. That’s what the perfect presentation is all about – great delivery of information. What many of the aforementioned products and services miss however, is the personal element that turns a good presentation, into a great one. Present.Me is a great tool for anyone who needs to put together an effective presentation. I can’t wait to try it.

  4. I am really impressed by what I read about this new software, Present.Me which has been developed. It would be cool be cool if it were possible to share our slides with the world even while you are recording your video!! It even allows to stop, edit and re-record if you want to which I think is really fantastic!! I would really like to know more about this and will check out a few technical questions on which I need a few clarifications!!
