When my company first started to use this, it got easier to use right away. They make it very user friendly. This is also a great device in order to keep in contact with other companies when you need to meet with them and cannot do so in person. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Personify Live allow me to engage with virtual audience to a brand new level. It's cheap, easy to use and allow to get a WOW effect from your audience in the first seconds. It is possible to change slide the "Minority Report" way. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are still few bugs on the applications, but the Personify team has always been very responsive. to correct them. One of the thing that could be improved would be the video quality (already good but not HD) but this part depends a lot from the Depth sensors camera vendors. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Whenever you feel too remote from your audience, Personify is the right product for you. Easy to use, commonly used hardware (Kinnect). It just works. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Engage remote audience is very difficult in a sales cycle and Personify allows that. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Students and audience do actually pay more attention to your class or presentation. It's a great tool for teaching home-schooling. For whatever reason, kids think you are watching them. Very effective with WebEx screen sharing. Conserves bandwidth for audio. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

No dislikes about the product. When using Personify with WebEx, it is better to remain in Screen Sharing mode and not switch to your camera. More a problem with WebEx and Windows than Personify itself. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Stick with the minimum, recommended hardware or better. Don't install the Microsoft Kinect 1l.7 SDK over this. There are driver conflicts. But, the Microsoft demonstration green screen pales in comparison to Personify. You will quickly uninstall. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Depth cameras are coming to market, ready or not. Personify Live has overcome the obstacle of getting affordable depth cams into the hands of customers, and offers a software suite and UI/UX that makes for an overall excellent product. Use of the product is geared towards the enterprise market, but this product has the potential to explode into so much more. Without a doubt, it's one of those things that you 'get it' once you see it in action. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There's always a cost to living on the bleeding edge. Depth cameras will be the norm in a few years, but it goes without saying that with a technology like this, you gotta pay to play, Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's already awesome, and the arrow on the company is definitely pointing up. With a strong engineering team behind it, this product is as good as any you'll find. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The "Wow" factor. Personify has some blue chip enterprise clients, but they are still making a name for themselves with SMBs. When I use Personify Live to demo for potential customers or present to investors, it blows people away! The simple setup, ease of use, and great support team (and trust me, all of those are amazing!) trumps in comparison to the "Wow" factor. It makes my team and my startup stand out from the rest. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing to dislike here. I just wish people would make Personify Live their primary video conference platform, so I could have more consistency outside of our group. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Personify Live has given us the ability to provide more personal and aesthetically pleasing lessons to the students in our Online Masters' program. It gives more of a face-to-face feel, and helps our distance learners feel like they get to know our faculty. It's easy to use, and VERY easy to integrate into our learning management tool. Our department loves using it--we've incorporated Personify lectures into almost every one of our classes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The camera requires some specific lighting to look "professional" in the recording. Part of the problem stems from the odd lighting in our offices, and it's taking us a while to tweak the configurations so that our personas look more solid without blurry edges (for lack of a better word). We've also had some trouble with sound being clear after the recording has been uploaded, but we might just need a better microphone. Basically, Personify Live itself works great, but we're still working on some of the technical issues on our end. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's an amazing tool for creating more dynamic presentations. We use it for teaching purposes (even though there are plenty of other ways to use it--we've barely scratched the surface, really), and we hear nothing but praise from our students, who think the technology is amazing and really enhances their learning. It truly enhances our ability to do distance teaching, too. We could not be happier with using Personify Live. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

This technology makes a dull powerpoint presentation come alive. The user interface allows for moving your image around to different spots on the screen to maximise effect. I plan to use this for webinars and to give a personalized pitch for our Venture Capital search. To be able to communicate one's enthusiasm for the subject matter through body language instead of just with voice inflection gives the presentation a dynamic feel. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

They are still working through normal early phase tech issues, but are very accessible and eager to help make it work for my application. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I got a return phone call within 3 minutes of an email request for assistance. Incredibly client centered and want to make this work for each application. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

How it brings presentations to life and allowed us to distinguish from other companies. When I was looking for a product to make our on line presentations I was interested in moving away from the still pictures and into the frame as a interactive character in the presentation and Personify allows just that to happen. With the right lighting and set up the experience should be great! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Nothing that I can think of. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Well... they give you the chance to try their product for 3 month and make an informed decision. If you do a lot of marketing on line and wants to break loose from your competition this is a great way of doing it. Give them a try! Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Personify Like is extremely easy to use and it provides purposeful virtual personification (instead of a seemingly meaningless floating head). It has allowed me to better investigate whether or not having a virtual presence available in asynchronous learning materials is actually beneficial. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The support team has been extremely helpful and giving of their time. I had concerns about video quality, but they worked to identify new camera options that created a clearer superimposition. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Reach out to the Personify Live support team before beginning production. They can provide you with a number of efficient and effective suggestions that can further simplify an already extremely simple process. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

The user extract technology is very advanced and innovative. I can perform virtual and interactive presentation anywhere I want. Also it was easy to share or stream the video with whoever I want. I am very amazed by the gesture control technology as well.

For some technology, it is very difficult to install and get used to, but this was not the case for Personify Live. It was very user friendly. It took about 15-20 mins to install and set-up. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Personify is an effective presentation tool that adds a bit of flair to a virtual session, whether live or prerecorded.
