PRO SOLUTION FOR MORNING ANNOUNCEMENTS & ROTATING KIOSKS
AV teams in all kinds of educational settings need the right presentation tools so they can quickly create presentation files for morning announcements or other rotating informational kiosks. While you could use a haiku deck or similar solution, you’ll get more professional results by turning to a professional, and easy to edit solution. Enjoy gorgeous, professional animations and transitions and support for up to 7 layers of content.
PROFESSIONAL VIDEO AND PRESENTATION SOFTWARE FOR AUDITORIUMS, ASSEMBLIES, AND LECTURE HALLS
ProPresenter isn’t just for creating interactive presentations for the classroom. It was built first and foremost for live stage presentations, making it the perfect presentation app for use in your school’s larger venues, such as auditoriums or lecture halls. Don’t settle for an outdated PowerPoint presentation for that next large assembly. Step up to a more engaging solution.
Integrate text, images, and video from nearly any source into your presentations thanks to seven adaptable layers for content.
Support for pro video formats (SDI, NDI, Syphon) means you can use ProPresenter in AV setups where PowerPoint and other office-grade tools won’t work.
ProPresenter allows for displaying different content across multiple different screens, so you can send separate layers or combinations of layers to main screens, secondary screens, stage displays, lobby displays, and more.
CONTROL SHOWS FROM ANYWHERE WITH REMOTE APPS
In academic environments, teachers and speakers often don’t have the luxury of a dedicated AV team running presentations for them. Give them the power to control their own presentations — from anywhere with local internet access including the school’s wifi — with ProPresenter’s remote apps.
ProPresenter has apps for iOS and Android apps for Remote Control so you can control presentations from your phone.
Stage Display apps for Android, iOS, tvOS, and iPadOS, are available so that you can send text or images via Apple TV or to an iPad or Android tablet on the stage.
Stage Screens Countdowns & Timers
School and university lectures and special events often rely on timers or countdown clocks to keep events running according to the academic schedule.
ProPresenter makes this simple, including via a stage display, which allows the speaker to see both speaking notes and a clock or countdown timer simultaneously — and running completely independently of the Whatever your presenter or lecturer needs to see to the Stage Display, no matter how different it is from the main display, ProPresenter has the flexibility to make it happen.
