Grass-Roots Demos

We're seeing a few Oracle ACEs begin to take advantage of Qarbon's ViewletCam tool, which allows you to capture full-motion swf demos and then add an audio track on top of it. The end result is a sort of hybrid between a demo and a blog entry -- or I guess you could call it a targeted, "grass-roots" demo.

This is an awesome tool (and only about $150) that we're recommending to the rest of the OTN community. (Tom Kyte recently blogged about this in fact -- check out the comments.)

See some examples of ViewletCam in action from Steve Muench and Tom Kyte.


Justin, this tool is in our corporate software package (however, not installed by default). Or would it be only for support engineers ? Regards, Didier.

Didier, I think the corp license is for ViewletBuilder, not ViewletCam (unless the latter is bundled with the former?), which doesn't support "full motion" capture. I would highly recommend V-Cam for support engineers, or for any shmo who wants to demo their favorite technique.

Oh I see - It's indeed ViewletBuilder, not ViewletCam, and no - they are not bundled together. I had it installed on my machine probably for a test we made in Support for publishing our content through MetaLink. Sorry for the confusion, and thanks for the clarification :)
