Welcome to Pachyderm Services
Pachyderm is an easy-to-use multimedia authoring tool. Designed for people with little multimedia experience, Pachyderm is accessed through a web browser and is as easy to use as filling out a web form. Authors upload their own media (images, audio clips, and short video segments) and place them into pre-designed templates, which can play video and audio, link to other templates, zoom in on images, and more. Once the templates have been completed and linked together, the presentation is published and can then be downloaded and placed on the author’s website or on a CD or DVD ROM. Authors may also leave their presentations on the Pachyderm server and link directly to them there. The result is an attractive, interactive Flash-based multimedia presentation.
What do Pachyderm projects look like?
Pachyderm pieces are interactive, Flash-based presentations that can include images, sounds, video, and text. Take a look at the examples in the Pachyderm Showcase to get an idea of the kind of thing you can do with Pachyderm.
Can I install Pachyderm myself?
Yes! The code is available free of charge on SourceForge. Pachyderm is a server product; individual authors do not need to install Pachyderm, only to have an account. Installation is best done at the institutional level by a system administrator. For assistance with questions related to installation, please see the PachyForge developer community.
I still have questions.
