is previewing Mac OS X versions of its Impatica for PowerPoint and Impatica OnCue products at this week’s National Education Computing Conference (NECC) conference.
Impatica products allow users of Microsoft PowerPoint and Macromedia Director to deliver content, plug-in free, to Java-enabled computers and other devices. The presentations can be synchronized to video and scrolling text, complete with indexing, navigation and search capabilities using OnCue.
Impatica for PowerPoint converts a PowerPoint file into a compressed format that’s optimized for streaming over the Internet. The file is typically 95 percent smaller than the PowerPoint HTML files. Impatica for PowerPoint supports most of the features of PowerPoint, including text, graphics, transitions, animation effects and narration. With Impatica OnCue, content is published to existing Web servers, without the need for the installation of server-side software.
Impatica is also introducing new K-12 pricing this week. Impatica for PowerPoint can be used by all teachers (at school and home) and by all students at school for US$995 per year per school. (Corporate licenses are $499 per desktop.)
