“We continue to innovate on Spotlight, and the presentation category as a whole, to ensure every type of presenter can give more impactful presentations,” said Anatoliy Polyanker, global portfolio & brand director at Logitech. "Our Spotlight remote is the ultimate tool for confident and fearless presenting and this latest update adds important personalization features that our community has requested.”
The premium Spotlight remote is unique because the digital pointer can be used on TV/LED-screens, online web meetings and multi-screen setups, plus it also works with traditional projector screens. It pairs with the Logitech Presentation App, and the latest update to this software enriches the experience for presenters in the following ways:
- Highlight freeze: Move the on-screen highlight smoothly to the place you want, and simply leave it there while you speak.
- More customization with timers: Set the timer according to your presentation needs. Receive vibration alerts at short time intervals or, if you are giving a lecture, you can set a vibration notification at a specific time on the clock.
The new Logitech R500 Laser Presentation Remote is ideal for physical type presentations with a projector screen, flip charts or 3D models. It lets you present effortlessly from up to 65 feet away, whether you’re in a small or large meeting room and includes an easy-to-use red laser pointer. The R500 connects to your computer via USB receiver or Bluetooth® Low Energy technology and is compatible with Windows, Mac OS, iOS and Android. It also has a contoured shape to fit snugly into the palm of your hand, a soft rubber surface and textured buttons that provide a comfortable and secure grip for all hand sizes.
