Knovio Pro

Instant multimedia content through online presentations

4.6/5 (11 reviews)

Knovio Pro Overview

Knovio is the fastest, easiest, and most fun way to create personalized, illustrated multimedia stories using nothing more than a desktop browser, iPad, or iPhone, and to distribute them instantly on-demand to any viewer with a desktop or mobile browser.

Unlike PowerPoint decks circulated by email or posted to SlideShare, Knovio presentations incorporate the full storyline, context, and personality behind the images, and provide a more complete and engaging communication experience.

These stories can be used for many business and personal purposes, including: explaining concepts, pitching ideas, marketing products, teaching courses, documenting processes, advocating causes, and practicing for live presentations. And as the content is viewed, Knovio provides continuous telemetry and feedback to the content creator, enabling him or her to take follow-up actions and improve the quality of the storytelling over time.

Knovio Pro, a user-friendly application for online presentations

Reviewed on 2015/08/12
Review Source: GetApp

As a Competitive Exam trainer in Spain for English Language teachers at Secondary State schools I have been using Knovio mainly to promote my B-learning course POPPIES and for the course presentations which are now an essential part of it.
I was looking for an easy-to-use, non expensive tool when the director of the B-learning Course I was then finishing back in October 2014 suggested Knovio: It was free and you could do up to 5 presentations. 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.

Since April 2015, the people at Knowledge & Vision have been working hard and they have come up with a great tool I would find difficult now to do without. I strongly recommend it to anybody looking for a very easy to use tool for their presentations and promotional videos.

Pros

Very easy to use, slides or .jpg files are easily uploaded, you can re-record each slide as many times as you need .
One of the features in Knovio Pro I particularly like is that your viewers can post you questions, a tool which, I think, is going to be of great help for me.
The customer support is prompt and really good, although I must say that I have hardly needed it, so easy and intuitive it is Knovio Pro (as is Knovio, the free application).
You can now download your presentations as mp4 for YouTube, Vimeo, etc. although I must say I have only downloaded a couple to my computer so far.
...I really love Knovio and Knovio Pro!

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.

Response from KnowledgeVision

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

Dramatic Improvement in Multimedia Content Production Time

Reviewed on 2015/08/11
Review Source: GetApp

As someone who develops leadership development and training materials for one of the largest HR services companies in the world, I was looking for a tool that my organization could use to develop crisp, compelling presentation-based content for our Learning Management System, as well as to distribute as "multimedia learning notes" for my leadership courses. Knovio has more than filled the bill.

It's easy to learn, easy to learn, and content that used to take days to create in some of the more traditional multimedia content tools now takes less than an hour in Knovio. That means we can roll out more video content more quickly than ever.

The most recent overhaul of the Web version dramatically improved from previous version. Now, the web and mobile versions work identically, which makes it easy to go back and forth.

I'm also very excited to explore the KnowledgeChecks feature that has just been released. Prior to this, we've had to post quiz material outside the presentation, within our LMS. But now, we can put quizzes right inside the presentation, and the results get scored and posted to the LMS, which is much cleaner.

Pros

-- The mobile version for the iPad is outstanding, and they've announced an iPhone version too.
-- 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. This was not in the original version, and makes a big difference.
-- I like that you can choose whether and when to appear on camera or not. Sometimes, you want just to use the microphone, and not the camera.
-- The video export makes using Knovio content much more flexible.

Cons

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

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

Used Other for 2+ years

Review Source: GetApp

Pros

Knovio makes it easy to sync up video and PowerPoint presentations and displays it well for the viewer. 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. We actually don't use it anymore as we have a need for a different delivery format, but it was great working with the customer service team and they were super helpful getting some files from their platform that we "lost", even after we discontinued use of their service.

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 makes my life easier

I use Knovio web and Knovio mobile to activate and provide my partners with sales ready presentations. It greatly simplifies things for me as partners and my WW partner sales team can easily reference the presentations any time regardless of where they are in the world or the time of day/night. Knovio also lets me know who is and is not paying attention to our content.

Pros

Open it and start building your presentations. Seriously, it's that simple.
The responsive design templates. 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). I don't need to be a landing page expert or a web developer.
Tracking! This is so important for me to manage the "silence" in my pipeline. I know if, when, and by whom the presentations are consumed. And I know what content they care about and just as important, the content they skipped over.

Cons

Nothing at this time

GetApp Analysis

Knovio is a cloud-based online video presentation tool that allows users to instantly create on-demand multimedia content for marketing, learning, and other communications. It can be used on websites, in email campaigns, and in social media to sell products, pitch ideas, explain concepts, teach courses, advocate causes, practice speeches, document travels, illustrate processes, and enhance resumes or portfolios.

Knovio Pro is a combination of four apps: Knovio Web, Knovio Mobile, KVCentral Library to store and manage your Knovios, and Enhance, which supports dynamic footnotes, chapters, and attachments to your presentations, among other things. Knovio Pro also comes with 32 player design templates, and speeds up production process by 10 to 100 times versus traditional multimedia authoring tools.

Knovio turns dull PowerPoint presentations into interactive, multimedia content.

What is Knovio Pro?

If you want to add personality to static PowerPoint decks, Knovio is a tool that makes boring presentations come alive with the voice and/or image of the author. It allows presenters to tell the story behind their slides and turn dull content into an engaging, multimedia experience. Multimedia presentations can be created within minutes from a web browser, smartphone, or tablet. All finished Knovios can be viewed in any browser, desktop or mobile, even without a downloadable viewer app.

A Knovio Pro subscription supports any number and any length of presentations (except for those created on mobile phones, which can only be a maximum of 20 minutes because of device memory limitations), and PowerPoint animations. Other features include programmable zoom control, clickable chapters, synchronized footnotes, high-definition 1080p or 720p video files for posting to YouTube, SlideShare, or other video services, and email alerts when someone watches your presentation.

Knovio lets you add clickable chapters for easy navigation, and footnotes for supplemental information to your presentations.

Knovio Pro Main Features

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.

Knovio allows you to record narrations using your webcam and microphone, or just the microphone.

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.

Knovio's KnowledgeChecks option adds quizzes and assessments, detailed viewer-level tracking, guestbook, and SCORM compatibility for learning applications.

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.

Use Knovio's one-click re-record button until you're satisfied with your narrations.

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.

Any published Knovio presentation goes straight to your KVCentral library where they can easily be shared and managed.

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).
