Unlike most presentation applications, a Sozi document is not organized as a slideshow, but rather as a poster where the content of your presentation can be freely laid out. Playing such a presentation consists in a series of translations, zooms and rotations that allow to focus on the elements you want to show.
Sozi can be run either as a standalone desktop application, or as a hosted web application. The desktop application is based on Electron.
Sozi is based on open standards.
- Presenter console – the editor creates an additional HTML file that contains the presenter console. This file can be opened in a web browser which shows a presenter view with the previous, current, and next frames, navigation buttons, and notes. It also opens the presentation automatically in a separate window.
- Embed Sozi presentations in HTML documents.
- Preview transitions in the presentation editor.
