Award-Winning Presentation Tool Works Across Multiple Environments and Screens, and Features Added Customization Functionality for a more Productive and Personalized Presentation Experience
Kensington®, a worldwide leader of desktop computing and mobility solutions for IT, business and home office professionals and The Professionals’ Choice, today announced that the Kensington Ultimate PresenterTM with Virtual Pointer is now generally available. A recipient of the prestigious 2017 Red Dot Product Design award for design innovation and quality, the Ultimate Presenter is compatible with a variety of presentation environments and screens, and features new customization settings for a more personalized and productive user experience.
While Bright LED screens or safety regulations can pose limitations with traditional lasers, the Kensington Ultimate Presenter is optimized for use in conference rooms with TVs, online meetings with remote participants, and large auditoriums with multiple presentation screens for greater user flexibility. Kensington has removed the laser from the pointing feature to help address the growing need for a presentation tool that can be used where laser devices are not allowed as well as for online meetings where remote participants can see the pointer onscreen when using web meeting tools. The presenter is also adaptable and customizable to the user, with its companion software KensingtonWorks TM for assigning different features to the top button. New customization features include mouse click, pen and magnifier, to improve upon the user experience.
