Why isn't Breeze Presenter sold seperately?

Breeze Presenter is an excellent tool that satisfies a common and growing requirement in the market (publishing voice-over presentations on websites). Unfortunately Breeze Presenter is frustratingly hard to buy as Adobe has chosen to tie the Presenter product to Breeze Communication Server, a product that is only sold on a (significant) subscription basis, which makes Breeze Presenter hard to use for the masses. You can buy Breeze Meeting on a pay-as-you-go basis but you can't use Presenter with a pay-as-you-go Breeze Meeting account (as there's nowhere to store the presentation).

Given that Breeze Presenter is really just an "authoring tool" for authoring SWF content for Breeze (like the Flash IDE, Captivate and Authorware) why not sell it in the same way - as a stand-alone authoring tool?

It would be very cool to have the ability to publish SWFs of Powerpoint presentaitons that have voiceovers where you just publish the presentation as a SWF and delpoy the SWF onto Tomcat or IIS and you're done. (The Powerpoint equivalent of Flashpaper if you like.) You don't need Breeze Server for this simple requirement.

Or can you do this already?

Hello Graeme Harker

>>Or can you do this already?
Sure you can... but you have to license the minimum of 5, means around 4.300 Euro (864 each).

Less then 2 Authorware ..

You could order it via an Adobe Breeze Reseller (like us:) it´s not too easy to find because Adobe is rebuilding the partner database&search since moons.

HTH & Kind Regards,
Volker

You appear to be confirming what I'm saying that the only way to get Breeze Presenter is to buy a recurring annual 5-user license for Breeze Server (which only large corporations are going to buy).

Seems like Adobe is wasting a good revenue opportunity here imho. It's such a cool product it's a shame to see it so underused. Or is this Flex v1 Enterprise Services over again?

Nope, I´m not confirming because these are five licences to author Rapid E-Learning Content out of PPT - no server connection, nothing else. And I wrote cheaper then 2 Authorware. This licence model changed from the time where you only could buy Presenter with server addition.

Now you could use only the software.

So you have to buy the annual recurring Breeze Server license and you just don't upload to the server, right?

No, you have 5 Breeze Presenter licenses to install and publish content locally out of PPT.
No server. Like buying Flash , Authorware, Dreamweaver, whatever.

So, Breeze Presenter is available to purchase as a seperate product, right ? It's just that you have to buy at least 5 of them, and it costs EU 4,300 right (EU 864 each)? Is that a perpetual license?

Correct.
