As the demand for presentations either in the workplace or school becomes evident, so is the need for an efficient presenting tool. Seemingly, this will aid the users in carrying out their tasks with great efficiency and accuracy.
The problem with some presentation tools like the traditional laser pointers is the ultra-bright light that they emanate, which can cause great damage to the eyes. To counter this obstacle, American manufacturer of device and mobile accessories Kensington devised a highly efficient solution – the Kensington Ultimate™ Presenter.
Being an innovative presentation tool, the Kensington Ultimate Presenter™ emulates a laser light effect and is intended for various environments such as conference rooms with TV displays, large auditoriums with multiple screens, and online meetings with remote participants who can also see the pointer onscreen when using online web meeting tools like WebEx®, GoToMeeting®, Skype™, and Join.me®.
Ergonomically designed, the Kensington Ultimate™ Presenter boasts a contoured shape for utmost comfort. Having such outline makes any angle parallel to the arm for easier movement as there’s no more need to twist nor tilt the wrist.
As for the controls, the Kensington Ultimate™ Presenter provides an intuitive button placement:
- top button – has several customizable features such as end and begin a presentation
- pointer – customizable up to 20 shapes and styles to suit the given presentation setup
- cursor – employed to open links and play videos during presentation
- magnifier – used to enhance a specific spot to further emphasize important details
The Kensington Ultimate™ Presenter also features a laser-free digital pointer that can be noticeably recognized on a variety of presentation screens such as TV displays, smart boards, traditional projection screens, and bright LED screens. Equipped with the Virtual Digital Pointer technology, the pointer on the Ultimate™ Presenter works just like a wireless mouse. It conforms to the middle of the screen at first click and moves relative to the users’ hand movement, letting them present from any corner of the room without the need to point directly at the screen.
Another notable feature of this presentation tool is the integration of the KensingtonWorks™ software, which enables users to modify the size, shape, and speed of the pointer. With such, users get to personalize and customize their presentation style (with respect to the setting or venue) for better outcome’s sake. KensingtonWorks™ also functions even without Internet connection.
Users can also take delight with the Kensington Ultimate™ Presenter’s 2.4GHz receiver with microSD card. For a plug and play kind of experience, the receiver fits any standard USB port, plugs directly to the device, and provides up to 20 meters of wireless range. The presence of a microSD card which is expandable up to 32GB, on the other hand, aids users in the storage of additional files.
The Kensington Ultimate™ Presenter is compatible with well-known operating systems like Windows® 10/8.1/7 and MacOS X 10.10 (or later versions) and leading presentation software such as PowerPoint, Keynote, Adobe PDF, and Google Slide®.
The Kensington Ultimate™ Presenter runs on two standard AAA batteries, which can last up to five months. It also comes with a pouch for added protection.
