SpeakFlow suite application is now out

Today at Virtual Edge Summit 2010, SharpLogic CEO Ed Kaim unveiled
SpeakFlow™, a suite of tools for creating, managing, and delivering
non-linear presentations.
SpeakFlow enables speakers to adapt their content at real-time to
better meet the needs of their audience by allowing them to easily
group related slides and jump between sections, features that
differentiate non-linear presentations from their more traditional
linear counterparts. Speakers can also embed content within their
SpeakFlow presentations, such as videos, hyperlinks, etc. The suite
includes a presentation viewer, an online designer, tools for managing
presentation access, and an online converter for importing linear slide
decks generated from tools like Microsoft PowerPoint, Apple Keynote,
and OpenOffice.org Impress.

"Today, I’m proud to
introduce SpeakFlow, the non-linear suite for personal and professional
presentations," said Ed Kaim, chief executive officer at SharpLogic.
"SpeakFlow will enable the millions of people who use linear
presentation tools on a daily basis to deliver their message more
effectively, whether in a sales meeting, a technology lecture, or just
for fun."

worldwide leader in software, services and solutions. As an early
adopter of SpeakFlow for non-linear presentations, Microsoft has been

sophisticated software suite," said Brian Keller, senior technical
evangelist at Microsoft. "The flexibility of SpeakFlow enables to us
adapt presentations in real-time to more effectively tailor the content
to meet the needs of each audience."
