Prezi

Prezi
Prezi is a cloud-based (SaaS) presentation software and storytelling tool for presenting ideas on a virtual canvas.[1][2][3][4][5] The product employs a zooming user interface (ZUI), which allows users to zoom in and out of their presentation media, and allows users to display and navigate through information within a 2.5D or parallax 3D space on the Z-axis. Prezi was officially established in 2009 by co-founders Adam Somlai-Fischer, Peter Halacsy and Peter Arvai. History[edit] Prezi (or Prezi.com) was created by the support of Kitchen Budapest and Magyar Telekom in 2008 in order to replace the ordinary slide based presentations. Today the project is assisted by Sunstone Capital.[citation needed] The actual development was done by Zui Labs led by its three Hungarian founders Péter Árvai, Szabolcs Somlai-Fischer and Péter Halácsy.

PersonalBrain TheBrain, formerly branded PersonalBrain, is a mind mapping and personal knowledge base software from TheBrain Technologies.[1] It uses a dynamic graphical interface that maps hierarchical and network relationships.[2] It includes the ability to add links to Web pages and files as well as notes and events using a built-in calendar.[3] It is cross-platform, available for Windows, Unix and Unix-like operating systems, and Mac OS X. [4] It is available in a free edition as well as in commercial editions with additional features.[3] See also[edit] List of mind mapping software References[edit] External links[edit] Official website

Two Reasons I Rarely Recommend Prezi Prezi is different in that it gives you one big canvas, and allows you to zoom in and out, and pan around, while still including photos and videos. The developers talk about the many uses of non-linear presentations, and the limitations of slide-based competitors. Now I’m all for innovation, and Prezi is a fine idea which is quite well-executed. You can criticize it for the limited built-in fonts or various other technical points, but in general, what it sets out to do, it does well. Sadly, when it comes to live presentations, I am not a fan of what it sets out to do. For me, the visuals you use when presenting need to do three things. a) more effectively b) more interestingly c) more memorably You could well argue that a cool and eye-catching show on the wall will be more interesting than a set of bullet points, and you’d be right. The trouble is that you don’t really want people to remember your visual effects. I always say that visuals should be simple and clear. So there’s the irony.

PREZI: pour des présentations qui ZOOM! La semaine dernière, Les Affaires publiait un dossier sur la créativité qui m’a beaucoup plu. On vous promettait notamment de vous apprendre à devenir plus créatif en 7 jours… Quelle belle proposition! Inspirée par cette initiative, je me suis donnée comme mission cette semaine de vous proposer un outil qui vous permettra d’ajouter de la créativité dans un domaine qui en manque cruellement : la présentation corporative! Si vous êtes comme moi, vous entretenez une relation amour-haine avec Powerpoint. C’est un instrument facile à utiliser, mais qui peut se retourner contre tout utilisateur qui manque d’imagination. En 2012, qui peut en effet supporter de se faire endormir pendant des heures avec des gabarits beiges bourrés de textes dont les graphiques redondants semblent tout droit tirés d’un fichier Excel? Avec Keynote, certains effets sont venus ajouter du oumf! À la semaine prochaine! Stéphanie Urgence numérique - Dernière chance!

Why I hate Prezi One of the many jokes about Powerpoint is how much time people who use it spend picking transitions between slides. They spend more time picking out animations, and which wipe effects to use, than they do thinking about what goes on the slides themselves. Or what their audience needs to learn and how best to convey those lessons. It’s like wanting to make a movie and spending all your time picking fonts for the credit reel at the end. Because of how Powerpoint, and Keynote, are constructed, other common habits for creating presentations are equally flawed. Popular presentation tools focus on slides, which should not be the focus at all. In Chapter 5 of Confessions of a Public Speaker, I explain the best way to prepare for a presentation. I first saw a demo of Prezi years ago, and it seemed interesting. I’ve experimented with many different ways to present. The people most drawn to use Prezi are those who are more enchanted by the pretense of style, rather than substance.

Prezi Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Prezi est un logiciel de présentation édité par la société hongroise éponyme, créé et lancé à Budapest en 2009. La société, qui emploie 200 salariés basés à Budapest, San Francisco et en Corée[1], revendique, depuis 2009, 50 millions d'utilisateurs à travers le monde. Histoire[modifier | modifier le code] L'outil est créé par Ádám Somlai-Fischer en 2009, avec la collaboration du professeur Péter Halácsy (Université polytechnique et économique de Budapest) et de l'entrepreneur Péter Árvai. Il est dévoilé à la conférence The Next Web[2] et lancé en Hongrie, puis à San Francisco. En 2010, la startup est "saluée" par les organisateurs de Conférence TED et lève 14 millions de dollars en 2011 auprès d'Accel Partners, un fonds d'investissement américain. La même année, Prezi est repérée par Barack Obama qui intègre la startup au projet ConnectED au côté d'Apple, Microsoft et AT&T. Le 2 avril 2014 Prezi lance une version française[3].

Prezi Is The Coolest Online Presentation Tool I've Ever Seen At last week’s The Next Web Conference, I was part of the 4-headed jury that evaluated all presenting startups and ultimately decided My Name Is E should be awarded the top prize. It was an extremely close call, since we ended up having to decide between the young Dutch company and a startup that built a simply amazing web application you’re really going to want to check out. The tool I’m referring to is called Prezi, and it allows you to create amazing presentations on the web. If you think you’ve heard that too many times, don’t stop reading just yet, because this one is just plain awesome. It’s really no use explaining how presentations come out without seeing it for yourself, so it pains me that there’s currently no way to embed the examples that are showcased on the Prezi website. It takes a while to get used to the way Prezi lets you create presentations, although the interface is fairly intuitive once you’ve grown accustomed to using the ‘Zebra’.
