10 Million People Zoom Into Prezi Presentations

Zooming Presentation Software Prezi Reaches Record User Adoption, Introduces PowerPoint Import to Enhance Visual Storytelling

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - May 2, 2012) - Prezi, the zooming presentation software, is experiencing record adoption of its visually engaging presentations. The unique integration of nonlinear brainstorming and linear storytelling has helped Prezi surpass the 10 million user mark and is fueling its growth of a million new users every month. Now, Prezi is making it even easier for everyone to create beautiful, engaging, and powerful presentations with the ability to import PowerPoint slides.

"With Prezi, people inspire change -- in their schools, at the podium, and in the boardroom," says Prezi CEO, Peter Arvai. "There is a prezi created every second and the new PowerPoint import feature makes this evolution of collaborative, interactive storytelling accessible to all. It's time to think outside the slide."

The new PowerPoint Import enables quick and easy upload of PowerPoint slides into Prezi presentations. Users have the flexibility to insert an entire presentation at once, or select individual slides and drag them anywhere on the Prezi canvas. The import feature supports PPT and PPTX files and works on all web-based and desktop versions of Prezi. Integration with the Prezi Viewer for iPad means users can also view and present prezis anywhere and adjust content on the fly.

Designed by an architect and visual artist, Prezi breathes new life into presentations. Prezi's open canvas evokes limitless possibilities while the unique zoom in and out lens and z-axis allow for a more effective use of space to convey meaning. Prezi is used by thought leaders, educators, students, and businesses to inspire, teach, learn, and tell powerful stories.

"Prezi is helping reinvent the art of presentation. Farewell, one-dimensional thinking. Welcome instead the power of inter-connection, flexibility, and the unexpected," said Chris Anderson, curator of TED Conferences.

With teams in San Franciso and Budapest, the company has been cash-flow positive since its first year of operation. Prezi closed $14 million in Series B financing led by Accel Partners in December 2011 and is one of the few companies to receive investment from the The Sapling Foundation, owner of the illustrious technology, entertainment and design (TED) conferences. Prezi plans to continue to improve the product and redefine the communications landscape.
