Full integration with the unequalled database connectivity features makes it even more powerful.

Interactive Presentations

Think of user engagement when designing your presentation - make elements interactive. Your audience will then be able to interact with these elements in your presentation through a touch screen interface or mouse and keyboard at a kiosk station. Ideal for when your intended use is for way-finding or advertising.

Live TV or IPTV

With the addition of a TV card you can show live TV content in your presentation. This can come from your choice of digital TV source such as FreeView or SKY TV. PADS4 also allows you to make use of IPTV technology by streaming TV feeds from a central location using third party products such as Exterity IPTV.

Showcase Statistics

Bring database information to life. Make use of dynamic tables, chart and graphs in your presentation. These elements can be connected to your own data feeds to show live up to the minute information in a visually appealing way. Ideal for displaying sales targets, stock levels or the status of support calls.

Media Capabilities

With PADS4 Designer you can work with a multitude of media formats in your presentation. From static images to flash files, WMV files and HD content. In PADS4 you can place your content files (pictures, videos, PADS presentations, etc.) in a central PADS Content Library. This content library will be shared among all users of a PADS system.

Web Integration

PADS Designer allows you to insert whole or part of web pages into your presentation. PADS uses Microsoft Internet Explorer technology for displaying web contents in its web page element.
