Impatica Announces Impatica for PowerPoint Version 5
For Immediate Release
OTTAWA, Canada—Tuesday, October 25, 2011—Impatica Inc. today announced that they will launch Impatica for PowerPoint Version 5 at DevLearn 2011 in Las Vegas on November 2nd. Impatica for PowerPoint version 5 is the easiest way to convert PowerPoint presentations into HTML5 compatible content.
Drag. Drop. Deliver Everywhere. With Impatica for PowerPoint Version 5, a quick drag and drop is all that is needed to convert PowerPoint content into high-quality online presentations that will play everywhere: on computers, iPhones, iPads and other devices. Impatica’s unique player uses HTML5, when available, to view these fully animated and narrated slides, but still works when HTML5 support is not available. That means that subject matter experts can focus on creating great content using the tools they know without having to concern themselves with where and how it will be viewed.
“Impatica for PowerPoint Version 5 really does allow users to build once and deliver everywhere” said Michael Doyle, Chairman and CEO of Impatica Inc. “Today, after over two years of dedicated effort by our highly experience team, we are extremely proud to announce this new product. By adding HTML5 support to Impatica for PowerPoint Version 5, our plug-in free delivery has been extended beyond PC and Mac users to include those using iPhone, iPad, Android, PlayBook and other mobile devices. Access is simply through the web browser without downloading any additional software from an App Store or elsewhere,” added Doyle.
In addition to reaching many more devices, Impatica for PowerPoint Version 5 extends and enhances its support for SmartArt, artistic effects on shapes, pictures and text (e.g. shadows, 3D effects, reflection, etc.), charts, graphs and WordArt.
“Our customers know they need to adopt HTML5 technology to meet their clients’ needs. Tablets and smartphones have changed the way people work and expect to receive their learning material and courses.” said Doyle. “With our new product, training professionals can generate content in the latest HTML5 format while continuing to use PowerPoint. They can take advantage of the new technology built into browsers and devices without changing the way they work and the tools they use.”
Impatica for PowerPoint is currently used by thousands of universities, colleges, schools and corporations around the world to rapidly produce content for direct delivery over the Internet or from a variety of popular Learning Management Systems. Version 5 of Impatica for PowerPoint maintains its award-winning ease of use. Users simply drop a narrated PowerPoint presentation into the Impatica for PowerPoint program and seconds later a compressed impaticized presentation is ready for deployment through an LMS or web site.
Students and corporate users alike are relying more and more on smartphones and tablets, such as the iPhone and iPad, for their access to the Internet. By eliminating the dependency on Flash and Java, Impatica has once again leaped ahead of other PowerPoint conversion tools, to reach users, plug-in free, regardless of platform.
