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

Immersive Presentations: Get Your Live Video Inside Your Slides with Personify Live | All about Web | 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)

Hi Becky, I strongly suggest you try Mapbox.com too. It's much easier than this and yes you need to be a bit fluent with CSS-like style sheets to get the best of TileMill.

The Consumer Electronics Show is coming to an end and many weary reporters are heading home bolstered by the promise of quiet time and no lines for the bathroom. CES is six straight days of noise, lights, hype and pitchmen and more input than any one person can digest in that amount of time.

The reporter from Forbes was a first timer and here’s what he had to say:
