Just a moment...

System Requirements

Basic computers are just fine

The Prezi editor runs well on most contemporary computers, even netbooks. You can easily determine if your computer meets system requirements to create prezis by:

  1. Checking out any prezi from to see if it plays back smoothly on your computer.
  2. Checking if you can play back YouTube videos whlst in fullscreen mode when in any prezi.

 High End usage

If you would like to create a very large prezi (with many videos, animations, high resolution images, etc), or you would like to present on a professional stage using double HD projections, you can. Prezi uses Adobe Flash technology to render prezis in real time, therefore you can create very high resolution presentations, but your playback performance will rely on the hardware. Here are some hardware recommendations:

  1. Fast processors and lots of memory help more than a strong graphics card.
  2. It can help to play a prezi through once, it will play smoother the second time (don't restart the prezi).



The website supports all major modern browsers (Internet Explorer 9 and above, Mozilla Firefox 3 and above, Google Chrome, Safari) but for the best experience we recommend using the most standard compliant browsers available (Firefox 3.6+, Chrome 4+, Safari 4+). Flash version 11.1 is required.
