Vcasmo is intended to give users a convenient way to prepare multimedia presentations. The application is compatible with many formats, including video, audio, PDF, PowerPoint, photos, and images. Users can also synchronize video and music and skip to specific portions of the video rather than waiting for an entire video to be downloaded. Vcasmo also allows users to subtitle presentations, link to other websites within a slide and work with a user friendly visual editor to position slides in a timeline format. Additional features include permission controls, visitor comments, embedding into blogs, and the ability to add blog articles to compliment a presentation. Vcasmo is intended for almost any situation, including personal slide shows, teaching, training, business presentations, seminars, conferences, live events, and press release meetings.Show more screenshots »
The creators of Vcasmo wanted to build an application that was easy for anyone to use without sacrificing the quality of the finished presentation. The result are many user friendly features that allow anyone to piece together an effective presentation using just about any media imaginable, from still images to video clips, blog content, and PowerPoint presentations.
Vcasmo caters to small businesses that are trying to save money and do it all on their own. This can be a very challenging task, especially when talking about money. Vcasmo keeps things simple by avoiding industry language and providing very clear directions and tools that make bookkeeping easier. By focusing on individuals who are not financial gurus, Vcasmo has created a tool that is ideal for anyone. Users can also find inspiration by browsing existing presentations under a list of popular categories, including academic, business, cooking, law, music, software, religion, pets, instructional, news and politics, technology, arts, animation, and entertainment.
The Vcasmo website appears professional, although it seems as though it is still a work in progress. The site features a blue, green and white color scheme. Users can find features lists, categories and more using the navigational tabs at the top of the page. The homepage currently features a wide open blue menu with nothing other than a few lines of header text with six buttons that share information on each feature available. The space in between almost seems too empty. Below that is a list of categories in a green menu that runs down the left hand side of the page. If these items were shifted around, the site would appear much more complete.
A new visitor can become a Vcasmo user by clicking the bold, blue “Sign up” link at the top right hand corner of the homepage. The registration form is clutter free and requires a username, email address, password and verification code (to ensure that the user is actually human). After entering the information and clicking the white “Agree and sign up” button (which both submits the information and agrees to the terms of service), the user is advised to check their email for a confirmation message which will include a link. The link must be clicked to finish registration and begin using Vcasmo.
Anyone can stop by the Vcasmo website and create an account for free. There are no subscription fees required or other charges for doing so. The application is still listed as in beta, so this may change in the future. There is no indication of whether a paid membership will be available or if the free membership will remain available after Vcasmo leaves beta.
Vcasmo is a tool for anyone that needs to create a presentation. The site has a few flaws, such as a bit of awkward English and design issues. The site is also really slow. This application is not recommended for anyone.
