Richmond, California (EastBayDaily) — Keyspan today announced its new Presentation Remote Pro is now shipping. The Presentation Remote Pro is a wireless remote control that works with Microsoft PowerPoint and Apple Keynote presentation software. With its laser pointer, mouse and audio controls, 100+ ft range and low MSRP of $79, the Presentation Remote Pro is the ideal tool for every public speaker and presenter in commerce or education as its range covers large meeting rooms and lecture halls.

No software is required. Just plug the receiver into the USB port on a PC or a Mac and the remote begins to work within seconds. Plus, all of the Presentation Remote Pro’s functions are available at a touch of a button at all times. Many other remotes force users to switch between function “modes” in order to use a mouse or media buttons.

“There’s no better value in the premium presentation remote category,” noted Mike Ridenhour, president of Keyspan. “With 100 ft RF signal, laser pointer, wireless mouse and volume controls at a price of just $79 — it provides unmatched performance for the price.”

Keyspan’s Presentation Remote Pro features include: RF Connectivity — Powerful 2.4 Ghz RF signal 100 ft range that works through walls and furniture. Mouse Control — Provides cursor control, scrolling and two-button mouse capabilities. Laser Pointer — Highlight key points in your presentation with ease. Volume Control — Adjust sound volume with the push of a button. Hide Slide — Darkens the screen anytime that you want to have the audience focus on you. Receiver — RF receiver is stored in the remote when not in use. Pops in and out with a simple push of your finger. On/Off Switch – Ensures that batteries do not accidentally run down when carrying the remote in a laptop bag. AAA batteries — Provide long life and are easy to purchase when replacement batteries are needed.

“We released our award winning Keyspan Presentation Remote in 2003,” noted Ridenhour. “This new generation remote provides many exciting enhancements — greater range, AAA batteries, stow away receiver, advanced slide functions — that our users have suggested.”
