Knovio Pro Features In Depth

Narration with Webcam, Microphone, or Both

When you first use Knovio, a system check is performed on your browser settings, network connections, Flash setup, webcam, and microphone. You perform a test recording, and if there are any problems, Knovio helps you troubleshoot. It also automatically detects and uses the media tools your device already has, such as a webcam or microphone, that are either built into your iPad or iPhone or attached to your computer.

When recording narrations for your presentations, you can use both your webcam and microphone, or just the microphone. Speaker notes can be typed in, and they’ll show up above the preview image in your record screen, which is where most webcams are located. If your PowerPoint slides come with speaker notes, they’ll automatically be visible above each slide.

Multiple Slide and Image Types, Plus Quizzes

Knovio works with different slides and image formats including PowerPoint animation, PDF, JPG, PNG, and mobile camera images.

When creating presentations, you can choose a PowerPoint deck or set of PNG or JPG images from your hard drive, or select any of the images or slides you previously uploaded, which will be shown across the bottom of the Add Slides screen. Processing and uploading of your slides can take anywhere from 30 seconds to a few minutes, depending on their length and complexity.

It also offers a KnowledgeChecks option that lets you sprinkle quiz questions throughout your Knovio, scoring and tracking the results.

Easy Recording and Re-Recording Functions

Knovio has a two-button recording control to record, pause, re-record, and advance your slides. When you’re ready to add narration, click on “Record Slide,” advancing your slides as you go via the Next Slide button. This is if you want to work on multiple slides all at once. Otherwise, press “Stop” and then advance to the next slide.

When you stop recording, you’ll see a preview and the length of the presentation, and, on the left side of the screen, the slides with media recording by virtue of the check marks in the thumbnails. The “Re-Record Slide” button will now be available in case you need to redo your narration. Knovio auto-saves your work every 30 seconds, or in case of an interruption.

Instant Publishing and Sharing on the Web

When you’re done recording, previewing, and editing your slides, you’re ready to publish and name your presentation. The blue Publish button is located on the upper right-hand side of the record screen. Each published Knovio automatically appears in your KVCentral library. Access to KVCentral can be done via any mobile or desktop browser at my.kvcentral.com or by logging in to your Knovio account.

Each Knovio presentation has a share button that, when clicked, generates links, embed codes, and shows email and social media posting options. The embed code can be inserted into a webpage or blog post. Knovios can also be exported to YouTube, SlideShare, and Vimeo. To do this, in the export video section of the presentation, click on “Show Downloads” and select 1080p for high-resolution videos. Click “Render” next to the video to generate a download link.

Anytime, Anywhere Creation and Viewing of Content

Because Knovio is cloud-based, it can be used to create and view content anytime, anywhere. Its responsive user interface adapts to any browser or viewing device, and creation tools are available on desktop browsers and iOS devices (iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch).

Knovio has a lot of potential if you spend the time crafting your presentations and content.

Pros

Limitless potential for broadcasting any message, class, product, or idea.

Cons

The current method is much better suited for short video presentations (3-10 minutes).

Knovio makes my life easier

2015-08-17

I use Knovio web and Knovio mobile to activate and provide my partners with sales ready presentations.

Pros

This is great because I publish the presentation once and it's available for viewers regardless of how they are opening the presentation (e.g. desktop, mobile, tablet).

Cons

Nothing at this time

Dramatic Improvement in Multimedia Content Production Time

2015-08-11

Now, the web and mobile versions work identically, which makes it easy to go back and forth.

Pros

. -- The system check, which audits your computer and connection to make sure it's set up for multimedia recording, is clever. -- The ability to go back and correct mistakes in the presentation is really important.

Cons

-- No Android version yet. -- I'd like to see more collaborative features, such as support for multiple contributors and team comments and feedback.

Knovio has tremendously helped me deliver better content

2015-06-10

I'm a shy person, so I'm always looking for new ways to deliver business presentations more effectively. Knovio helped me bring my presentations to the next level and be more impactful to the people who I send it to.

Pros

My presentations are now more engaging and people actually spend the time to listen to what I have to say.

Cons

It's extremely easy to use over and over.

Allows more dynamic and attractive presentations

2018-04-25

Fill my presentations with dynamism what gratifies me as a filmmaker and invites you to explore the application in depth

Pros

It gives a different character to power point presentations nourishing them with color, sounds and movement, which makes it easier to catch the attention of the viewer.

Cons

The kinetics that the added videos add to the PowerPoint presentation make it slower and sometimes it is not possible to advance the films and videos to the weight content of the contents.

Easy to use and deliver lecture style presentations

2018-05-01

Pros

It's nice that it works on mobile, has ability to deliver in formats for tracking in an LMS, and it's nice that all the video streaming is handled in the cloud.

Cons

One of the primary reasons we needed to migrate platforms is that all content is housed in their cloud service which requires a continued relationship. This is perfectly fine as it's one of the cons noted for the software, but it evolved to become not the best situation for my company.

Knovio Pro, a user-friendly application for online presentations

2015-08-12

Very easy to use, it had then two main drawbacks: uploading the slides did not always work (it was better to upload them as .jpg or similar) and could not be downloaded in video format for YouTube or similar.

Pros

Very easy to use, slides or .jpg files are easily uploaded, you can re-record each slide as many times as you need .

Cons

Very little, and I know they are working on it so, very soon, I may find that this is possible. I'd like to be able to use .pdf and not having to convert the file to .jpg. Also, I'd like the application to have a pointer to allow me to mark where I am in the presentation, particularly if I am using a pdf converted to a jpg file.

No sooner said than done! PDF support is now part of Knovio, as the result of an update that just went out yesterday.
