Piccolo Home Page How many versions of Piccolo are there? There three versions of Piccolo: Piccolo.Java, Piccolo.NET, and PocketPiccolo.NET. They contain the same core functionality with a few differences. Piccolo.JavaPiccolo.Java is written in 100% java, and the great thing about Java is that it runs on lots of machines including Windows, Mac OS X, Linux and Solaris. What do you mean by "Structured Graphics"? Piccolo provides support for developers of 2D (+ zooming) object-oriented graphics programs in Java and C#. This simple approach is very powerful because is enables a very decoupled object oriented approach to graphical applications. What development directions are you following? We are continuing to expand and maintain all three versions of Piccolo. How do I get a Piccolo License? It's free! Note that you are not obligated to make your applications open source. How do I contact the Piccolo team and Piccolo users? There are several ways. Where did Piccolo come from? What happened to Jazz?
Mehr als nur Powerpoint-Folien: Tools für starke Präsentationen | Business-Software | Tests & Technik Wer das Wort Präsentation hört, denkt meist an Microsoft Powerpoint. Multimediale Präsentationen haben jedoch oft einen ganz anderen Fokus und gehen über das Präsentieren von animierten Folien durch einen Sprecher hinaus. Wer beispielsweise eine selbst ablaufende Demonstration erstellen möchte, muss eine Live-Demo aufzeichnen können. Größere Projekte, etwa eine multimediale DVD, erfordern die Möglichkeit der gemeinsamen Bearbeitung durch ein Team und die Einbindbarkeit verschiedenster Video-Formate. Mit den folgenden vier Tools lassen sich professionelle Multimedia-Präsentationen erstellen. Sie richten sich jedoch nach teilweise recht unterschiedlichen Aufgabenstellungen aus. Sophie ist ein Autorentool auf Open-Source-Basis zum Erstellen von Präsentationen mit integrierten Text-, Audio- und Video-Dateien. Digitale Präsentationen mit Fotos und Videos und zahlreichen Effekten erstellt Photostage. Turbodemo ist ein Tool zum Erstellen von Präsentationen in Flash.

Video Tapestries with Continuous Temporal Zoom ACM Transactions on Graphics (Proc. SIGGRAPH), August 2010 A multiscale tapestry represents an input video as a seamless and zoomable summary image which can be used to navigate through the video. We present a novel approach for summarizing video in the form of a multiscale image that is continuous in both the spatial domain and across the scale dimension: There are no hard borders between discrete moments in time, and a user can zoom smoothly into the image to reveal additional temporal details.

Zooming into presentations - Zoomit, Prezi & pptPlex In this blog post, I describe 3 different ways to zoom in and out of presentations to increase visibility, and to create a bit of action. The three tools are Zoomit, Prezi and pptPlex. I describe my experiences with them in detail and their pros and cons as presentation tools. UPDATE : John in his comments below suggest that I should have included ahead, a even newer tool that in some respects is similar to Prezi , but which he claims is easier to use than Prezi . Introduction Recently I gave my first ever talk at a local library conference in Singapore - Libraries of tomorrow . While the conference was ran efficiently and I was extremely impressed by the work of my fellow presenters and posters, I felt that the venue wasn't the best place for giving talks, as there was sunlight coming from behind the screen (we were at the top level of a building with clear transparent windows), and the glare made it difficult (at least for me, though bear in mind I have very poor eyesight!)

Tropes: Text Analysis and Semantics Analysis of written or spoken texts requires that certain questions should be asked with regard to certain objectives. To obtain answers to these questions, texts must be reduced as far as possible to their essentials. Designed for Information Science, Market Research, Sociological Analysis and Scientific studies, Tropes is a Natural Language Processing and Semantic Classification software that guarantees pertinence and quality in Text Analysis. Extraction of Relevant Information Tropes can immediately detect contexts, isolate themes and identify principal actors, through the application of three levels of semantic classifications. Qualitative Analysis and Categorization Tropes identifies the Text Style in order to place it in context and rapidly compare it with other texts. Chronological Analysis Tropes carries out a chronological analysis of a text from which the principal episodes can be isolated, the discussion blocks visualized and the development of an idea followed up.
Prezi – Business und Internet Prezi ist ein webbasierter und plattformunabhängiger Präsentationsdienst. Auf einem virtuellen Blatt Papier kann eine Präsentation erstellt werden.

emaze - Amazing Presentations in Minutes Zooming user interface Example of a ZUI When the level of detail present in the resized object is changed to fit the relevant information into the current size, instead of being a proportional view of the whole object, it's called semantic zooming.
