Immersive Presentations: Get Your Live Video Inside Your Slides with Personify Live

Immersive Presentations: Get Your Live Video Inside Your Slides with Personify Live | Collaboration tools and news | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Personify Live is a new type of Windows app which allows you to integrate in your live webcast, online event or webconference your real-time video image overlayed on the slide content you are showcasing.

 

To achieve this result, Personify Live extends the capabilities of your favorite web conferencing solution (GoToMeeting, GoTowebinar, WebEx, Adobe Connect, Skype, Lync, etc.) "by extracting you from your surroundings and placing you within the presentation".

 

"The technology creates a virtual green screen feel for the presenter, for a communication experience that attempts to come as close to being physically present in front of the audience as possible.


[Personify Live] extracts live video of the presenter to then superimpose it onto the desktop to create a layer on top of a presentation.


There’s also a complementary iPhone or Android app that acts as a remote control, letting presenters mute the video feed of themselves with a click of a button, and interact with the content to emphasize and engage their audience.


Source: http://betakit.com/2012/11/12/personify-pairs-kinects-camera-with-videoconferencing-tools-to-amp-up-presentations

 

There are three ways in which Personify Live can be used:

 

a) As an extension to your existing web conferencing and presentation tools.

 

b) As a cloud-based production platform that can output a downloadable .MP4 video

 

c) As a live screencasting app by itself which can integrate with your presentation tools.


Pricing starts at $19.99/mo or at $199 for an annual subscription (which includes an Asus Xtion Pro Live Depth Camera and three months free).

 

P.S.: For Windows 7 / Vista only. (Mac version coming in 2013)

Best 15 Free Video Conferencing Tools 2012

Best 15 Free Video Conferencing Tools 2012 | Collaboration tools and news | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for a free video conferencing solution, here is my selection of the top 15 (and more) solutions available right now online.

I have personally checked each one of them, and while you may not like each one, they all guarantee the ability to video conference with more than two people (FlashMeeting is the only exception I have included) without you needing to pay anything for it.

 

Some, as good as Vidyo or Zoom.us may provide HD quality video and even full support for mobile platforms. Others, like MeBeam or Sinfor offer bare-bone ad-supported solutions that have zero frills but can do the job if you need an immediate, zero-cost solution.

 

Check it out here: http://pinterest.com/robingood/top-15-free-video-conferencing-tools-2012/

 

P.S.: Feel free to suggest tools you know that should belong in this collection.

Create Your Own Doodle Animations with VideoScribe.tv

Robin Good: I am speechless. This is one of the best visual communication tools I have seen this year. Videoscribe.tv allows anyone to create effective doodle animations with the minimum of complexity and with really excellent results.

 

Videoscribe.tv has been available as an iOS app already for some time, but now a desktop version is being launched any day now.

 

I have purchased both the iOS and the desktop version of Videoscribe.tv and I have been blown out of my socks after I have seen with my eyes what this little app can do. Amazing.

 

There is a great library of vector art included, plus the software can scour the Internet searching for other vector images to use in your doodle animations. Not only. VideoScribe takes care automatically of crediting the original image authors/source.

 

A music soundtrack can be easily added by utilizing the licensed tracks available and you can also record your own voice-over.

 

Videoscribe.tv can export finalized doodles at different resolution levels from low quality to HD, and as JPG/PNG sequences or standard .MOV files. The final video can be saved locally, uploaded directly to YouTube or your Dropbox account or shared on Facebook.

 

See how VideoScribe works in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fytT81JirMQ&feature=colike 

 

You can get Videoscribe.tv only by purchasing a Sparkol PRO license (apx. €15/month) here: http://www.sparkol.com/gopro.php
