HyperStudio 5

HyperStudio 5 is a creative space where you can make fully interactive digital presentations to pass on knowledge, express ideas and attitudes, engage and entertain, all using the very latest technologies.

If you're part of the generation that mixes and mashes, the generation that makes movies instead of just watching them, the generation that blogs and tweets instead of just reading or watching the news, the generation that makes podcasts instead of just listening to the radio, then you'll want to get to know HyperStudio for Mac OS X and Windows. HyperStudio is all about media fusion.
