sofTV.net, a division of XStream Software Inc. that provides software solutions for advanced media presentation authoring, has released the sofTV.Presenter Interactive Learning Pack, a feature-rich product bundle that combines sofTV.Presenter v3.1 with XStream Software?s RapidExam v2.5 Deluxe exam/assessment authoring technology. The extensive assessment-authoring capabilities of RapidExam add another dimension to sofTV.Presenter, sofTV.net?s flagship video synchronizing tool. With the sofTV.Presenter Interactive Learning Pack, sofTV.net customers are not only provided with a powerful tool to easily create rich media presentations, but they can also easily provide a higher level of interactivity for their audience with the addition of sophisticated exams, certifications, quizzes, surveys, and other types of interactive assessments.
sofTV.Presenter v3.1 allows users to create Live and On-Demand web-based streaming video/audio presentations. These presentations consist of Microsoft PowerPoint slides that change in synchronization with the video or audio content. The user simply records a video or audio presentation, encodes it, and then synchronizes it with a PowerPoint presentation ? all within sofTV.Presenter. The user can also import a previously encoded streaming media file and synchronize PowerPoint slides and notes to create a synchronized multimedia presentation. In addition, the user can broadcast and control a live presentation, which can be easily archived, complete with synchronized slides, so that viewers can access it later as an on-demand presentation.
