The PowerPoint Broadcast Slide Show makes it easy for PowerPoint 2010 users to share a presentation on the fly with 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 Web browser, even if they don’t have PowerPoint 2010 installed.
To broadcast your slides to an audience, follow the directions below.
Starting a broadcast
To start a broadcast from PowerPoint 2010, click Broadcast Slide Show on the Slide Show tab.
Ensure the PowerPoint Broadcast Service is selected and click Start Broadcast.
Sign in with your Windows Live ID. (If you use Hotmail, Live Messenger, or Xbox LIVE, you already have a Windows Live ID. If not, it only takes a minute to sign up.)
PowerPoint will provide a public link that you can send to up to 50 remote attendees. Anyone who receives a link to the broadcast may watch it. Keep in mind that if an attendee forwards the link to someone else, that person can also use the link to view your broadcast.
If you’re within an organization that has set up its own broadcast service, you will be able to start a broadcast without a Windows Live ID.
Viewing a broadcast
To view a broadcast, just open the link you receive from the presenter. All you need is the latest version of Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari for Mac. 1
