Dag Hendrik LerdalDag Hendrik Lerdal is a 29 year old entrepreneur and Software Engineer with an MSc in Communication Technology living in Trondheim, Norway. After finishing his Master’s degree at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, he co-founded Preseria AS in 2008. The company develops technology and services related to planning, administration, execution and publishing of digital presentations in context of seminars, meetings and conferences.

In this conversation, Dag discusses the release of his new SlideDog program.

Geetesh: Can you share your thoughts about SlideDog, and how the beta helped shape the final product?

Dag: SlideDog has come a long way since we launched the beta earlier this year. The main issue people had with the beta was the waiting time between file switches. This has been fixed in the new release as we now pre-load all presentation files in the playlist before entering “show mode”. Users won’t experience any delay when switching between files using the new SlideDog. In addition to giving us feedback and providing us with usage metrics, the beta testers helped us gain a much clearer view on the presentation market and what people really need when doing presentations . We’ve temporarily removed some of the features that were included in the beta, but most of these and a couple of really cool new features will appear on www.slidedog.com very soon. We’re really excited to bring seamless presentations to the world!



Geetesh: What are the file formats that SlideDog can play with, and does the end user need any of those applications locally installed?

Dag: SlideDog currently supports PowerPoints, PDFs, Images, Prezis, Videos and Web pages. By web pages we mean that you can add any URL and hence show any presentation format that is playable in a web browser such as YouTube clips, Google Docs, SlideRocket presentations, etc. To show local files you need Office or PowerPoint Viewer, Adobe Reader or Acrobat, Google Chrome and VLC installed on your machine.
