Qarbon today announced the release of ViewletPresenter™, the newest addition to its popular family of multimedia Flash authoring tools. ViewletPresenter software allows users to convert their MS PowerPoint presentations to Viewlets, secure, compact Flash files that are easy to publish on the Internet.

“We are very excited about the launch of ViewletPresenter as it represents our expanded focus on products that we believe will appeal to the mainstream business user,” said Patrick LeGranche, CEO and chairman of Qarbon. “With ViewletPresenter, anyone can convert their PowerPoint presentations to Flash and publish them quickly and easily on the Internet. And at our introductory price of $99.00, we believe that corporate and education customers will find ViewletPresenter to be a cost-effective solution for their online presentation needs.”

ViewletPresenter is a simple, straight-forward utility product that converts PowerPoint presentations and their elements to the Flash format. Because the Flash player is installed to over 98% of the computers connected to the Internet, virtually anyone can now view the converted presentations with ease. ViewletPresenter is designed to simplify the process of online presentations, forgoing the conversion of transitions and animations to maximize the efficient delivery of the content over standard dial-up connections. ViewletPresenter also provides a customizable player, allowing users to “brand” their presentations with a specific “look and feel.” In addition, users can modify the converted presentation by changing the slide order, slide duration and even add notes to the online presentation, all without affecting the source presentation.

ViewletPresenter joins ViewletBuilder™, Qarbon’s flagship Flash authoring tool for creating visual product demonstrations, online tutorials and marketing presentations; and ViewletCam™, the fastest, easiest way to record the activity on your PC in full-motion. Whereas ViewletCam’s recording process works like a digital camcorder, ViewletBuilder’s patented screen capture method works like a digital camera. With the addition of ViewletPresenter to Qarbon’s line of products, Qarbon is also announcing the availability of ViewletSuite, composed of ViewletBuilder, ViewletCam and ViewletPresenter. With ViewletSuite, customers have a flexible, powerful and cost-effective set of Flash authoring tools to address their online presentation needs.

With more than 20 million Viewlets created and in circulation and thousands more created daily, Viewlets are the preferred communications tool of thousands of enterprise organizations, including 51 of the Fortune 100 and numerous government organizations.
