Focus on StandOut

StandOut is the name of a soon-to-be-released presentation product from Electric Rain that uses Windows Vista’s graphic and multimedia abilities to good use.

Essentially, StandOut will be available in two versions: Designer and Presenter.

The Designer version takes advantage of Microsoft’s new Expression design tools so that designers can create a set of Design Kits (templates) that can be used to create presentations using the Presenter version.


Standout Designer

The Presenter version is for non-designers such as typical office staff and presenters themselves who can create and edit presentations based on the Design Kits (templates) created with the Designer version.


Standout Presenter

One of StandOut’s stellar features is the FlyPaper, a large digital bulletin board that can be used to store several types of content including graphics, documents, media, and PowerPoint presentations. These resources can then be organized, and also directly dragged into a StandOut presentation. Naturally, something of this sort will benefit from a large monitor (or probably a dual monitor).

StandOut will allow import of Microsoft PowerPoint content, although this exchange of content will not work the other way around. Watch out for a detailed interview with Mike Soucie, President and CEO of Electric Rain soon on Indezine.com, which I will announce on this blog.

Meanwhile, do check out the Electric Rain site for more info…
