Knovio Online Video Presentations: Conversation with Michael Kolowich

Created: Tuesday, July 5, 2011, posted by Geetesh Bajaj at 4:33 am

Michael KolowichMichael Kolowich is founder and CEO of KnowledgeVision, which has developed enterprise-grade tools for creating, managing, and distributing synchronized interactive online video presentations for communications, marketing, training, and sales professionals.

In this discussion, Michael gives us an early look at Knovio, their new personal video presentation site. And while it’s in limited beta test, he extends an invitation to our readers.

Geetesh: Tell us about your new online presentation platform, Knovio – and what sets it apart from other similar options?

Michael: Knovio is a new free tool from KnowledgeVision that we’re sneak-previewing this week. Knovio helps people create and share online video presentations using nothing more than a webcam and a PowerPoint deck.

It’s a drop-dead-simple user interface: upload your slides, press RECORD and advance the slides as you speak, and press a SHARE button to publish instantly to email, Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn.

It’s different from other options in that video of the presenter is central to the experience. By capturing the presenter on a webcam, Knovio presentations give a much richer experience to the viewer.

Critical to Knovio’s success will be the fact that it’s built on KnowledgeVision’s enterprise-grade technology, which is used by some of the largest financial services, technology, and educational institutions in the world. That translates to a fast, reliable experience for even the free Knovio users.


Geetesh: How does one get started with Knovio, and what is the special invitation option for Indezine readers?

Michael: Knovio is currently in an invitation-only preview phase, but we’ve made a limited number of invitations available to Indezine readers. That’s because we recognize that your readers are thought leaders in how to make better presentations.

The first 50 arrivals at Knovio who use the activation code INDEZINE will be immediately admitted to the invitation-only preview. If you don’t make it into the first 50, don’t worry: we’ll put you on a priority wait-list and you should get your invitation very soon.

Knovio is a work in progress, and we’re adding new features every few days. This is a great opportunity for Indezine readers to have a hand in helping us develop a product that suits their needs, by providing active feedback to our developers.

  • Hi There

    I am intrigued by the idea of creating a video with a presentation and sounds like fun. The is definite value in having this in ones electronic toolbox. As part of the preparation would the user not also have to storyboard each slide and have a script, on what should be stated? It seems so simple to just load, record and post.
