Zoho Raises Bar for Online Presentations

December 17, 2007; 08:21 AM

PLEASANTON, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Zoho is raising the bar for online presentation software with todays release of Zoho Show 2.0. Built with Ajax, Zoho Show 2.0 presents Zoho customers with an elegant, completely revamped user interface that simplifies access to an expanded array of features. For a video of Zoho Show 2.0, please visit http://www.viddler.com/raju/videos/17/.

We completely rebuilt Zoho Show to achieve two distinct goals, said Raju Vegesna, Zoho evangelist. First, we want to take full advantage of being online. Second, we want to reach feature parity with offline, desktop presentation applications.

Presenting Zoho Show 2.0

With Zoho Show 2.0, Zoho has both visually and functionally refined its online presentation application.

Vegesna continued, Zoho Show 2.0 showcases the power of Ajax to create a rich, online UI and feature set. Actually, the technology exceeds the client requirements for office productivity applications today.

Zoho Show 2.0 gains an elegant, three-pane user interface that provides clear, convenient access to a host of new features, including:

  • Themes support: Users can choose from over 50 default themes. Eventually, users will be able to create their own themes and contribute it to the library.
  • Shapes and symbols support: Hundreds of shapes and symbols are available for flowcharts, etc.
  • Extensive editing support: Users can rotate and flip images and select from multiple text, images, and bullet types.
  • Clip art support: Graphics categories include Animals, Transport, Business, Science and Technology, etc.
  • Zoho Meeting and Zoho Chat integration: Zoho Meeting lets users share their desktops with audiences viewing their presentations. Zoho Chat lets users chat online with their audiences while doing presentations.
  • Improved importing: The import quality for presentations (ppt, pps, odp, sxi) has been greatly improved.

Going forward, Zoho will add support for transitions as well as for audio and video content.

Feedback on Zoho Show 2.0

Thanks to its rich UI and feature set, Zoho Show 2.0 is enjoying positive response from the Zoho community.
