In today’s world, you often need to communicate with people in different locations who can’t get together in the same room. When you’re presenting, you want everyone to see your slide show at the same time -- whether they’re sitting next to you or joining on the phone from 10,000 miles away.
PowerPoint 2010 makes it easy to present on the fly to anyone, anywhere. Just send a link, and in one click everyone you invite will be watching a synchronized view of your slide show in their browser. You’ll never again need to email bulky attachments or make an announcement every time you change slides.
Watch this video to see how it works:
Attendees listening on the phone or a conference call need to click only once to open your link in their Web browser and watch your broadcast. Their view will update automatically to show your current slide and play animations as you show them. This view has the same cross-platform, cross-browser support as the Office Web Apps.
All PowerPoint 2010 users can access the PowerPoint Broadcast Service using a Windows Live ID. When you start a broadcast, it will provide a public link that you can send to anyone on the Internet you invite.
Organizations will also have the flexibility to host their own broadcast services and set permissions for who can create and view broadcasts.

Does this support audio too? Or just the visual?
@smythe Just the visuals. You can couple this with a phone call or conference call, which many meetings already have in place.
It's awesome, I've already tried it out with one show, one question though, my fonts didn't show up on the broadcast version, even though they were fine on the main screen. Is there limited font support for this app? (The machine that I used for viewing had the font installed.)
@Dually Font support is based on the fonts installed on our servers. We install a large number, but cannot include every font. If you'd like to ensure full fidelity, you can save your presentation with embedded fonts before starting the broadcast (File / Options / Save / Embed fonts in the file).
Ok, awesome, thanks for letting me know.
Is there a limit on how many can watch the powerpoint broadcast?
Thanks for information. Do you know which version of Internet Explorer / FireFox needed to view the broadcast ?
Very cool! But I noticed that the ability to ink on the slides is gone in broadcast mode. Any chance that will be there when the non-Beta version is released? I'd also like to have the option of allowing my students to save the broadcast presentation. Is that possible? Thanks! Excellent work!
@Thao: Powerpoint Broadcast works on IE7, IE8, Firefox 3.5 and Safari 4
Why can't I have the option of seeing speaker notes while I'm broadcasting a presentation?
@Howard: You can use presenter view while broadcasting to see speaker notes. You can learn more about presenter view here: office.microsoft.com/.../HA100673831033.aspx
I incorporated a WMV video in my presentation but it didnt broadcast. Is there a trick to being able to do that ?
@Bernard: Video is not supported for attendees viewing a broadcast.
so the information in this link is incorrect ? They talk about optimizing videos for broadcasting within Powerpoint 2010. >
The presenter view option cannot be enabled with the broadcasting option. It pops up a message asking us to check our display settings for a second monitor. In other words, if there is no second display device, it is not possible ti enable the presenter view.
