(Melville, New York--March 15, 2016) Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the PR10-G, PR100-R and PR1000-R Handheld Presenters featuring easy-to-see green or red beams, a backlit LCD, timer and slide control features to help provide dynamic flexibility for business professionals, educators, students and lecturers to move away from the podium and deliver an effective presentation.
Compatible with PowerPoint®, Keynote®1, Adobe PDF®and Mac iOS Preview files, these new products feature wireless slide operation via USB plug-in receiver2. Requiring no setup, users can connect immediately and move freely around a conference room, lecture hall or classroom from up to100 feet away3with the PR10-G and up to 50 feet3for the PR100-R and PR1000-R to maintain control of presentations – including images and volume4– without needing to ask a partner to change slides.
“We are excited to offer our customers another tool that will help them with their business and educational needs,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO of Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Our presenters are excellent companions to our line of projectors – essential tools from the classroom to the board room that will make every public speaker’s job a little bit easier.”
The PR1000-R features a red laser for the more traditional user, the PR100-R features a red laser with doubled intensity5 and the PR10-G features a green laser that is eight times5more visible than the red laser, which is ideal for presentations in brightly lit environments, including convention halls and outdoor locations.
The PR10-G and PR100-R Handheld Presenters also provide features to help speakers maintain focus on the crowd and not the clock. A backlit LCD Smart Timer, ideal for dim environments, displays a countdown of the remaining time in a presentation, letting speakers know how long they’ve been talking and when it might be time to bring the presentation to a close. Additionally, both models include a vibrating alert to notify the speaker that time is almost up.
All presenter models are designed to comfortably hold in your hand for extended presentations. Simple button layouts allow users to easily distinguish between keys by touch and take full control without needing to glance at the device while presenting.
