Handheld presentation remote for meetings, lectures, and speeches
Our take on the Logitech® Spotlight by Crutchfield's Kramer Crane
A fresh take on presentation control
Ever given a presentation, and wish you had more control over the on-screen content than just a laser pointer and a slide-forward button? Meet the Logitech Spotlight. This slim, handheld remote communicates wirelessly with your computer, providing tons of useful control features that make the on-screen navigation of your presentation simple and interactive.
How it works
The Spotlight comes with a small USB receiver that plugs into your computer. It communicates wirelessly through Bluetooth®, all the way out to 100 feet. Through the Spotlight's software, you can custom-program the remote's buttons to change volume, or perform specific functions with a gesture. You can even set up timed alerts so that the remote buzzes when you've reached certain progress points in your presentation.
An actual spotlight for highlighted content
Instead of pointing a pale, hard to see red dot onto your screen, the Spotlight's advanced pointer system precisely highlights areas of focus. It gently dims the surrounding content, so that your audience's attention is drawn exactly where you want it to go. The Spotlight lets you control the on-screen cursor, which you can use to play and pause videos, open links, and enjoy a variety of interaction options.
