PowerPoint PPTPlex

20th September '09 - -

PPTPlex uses Plex technology to give you the power to zoom in and out of slide sections and move directly between slides that are not sequential in your presentation; and is available here (over at the office labs).

I've recently installed this add-on to test its features and you can see a quick demo of my own experience using it.

There are pro's & con's in using it and I would say that its very much (at this stage) for users doing sit-down presentation-cum-meeting styles, that require linkage with other external data documents such as word, excel, and pdf. For delivery of presentations that have you on your remote, it will depend on the features that your remote has - if its a simple remote, the zooming portion will have you running back to the laptop constantly.

In short:

The Con's
- loses all the animation
- loses all the video
- If remote device is simple, then delivery is clumsy
- low-res pictures will still get distorted

The Pro's
- Nice zooming feature
- Visibly opens external documents (no need to click the hyperlink)
- Groups sections of your slides together (audience get to see a complete overview)

Here is another video (different user) on PPTPlex.
