Logitech has released the new Wireless Presenter R400 and Professional Presenter R800 to help users deliver an effective presentation. The R800 features a silent timer that lets you know how much time you had spent presenting, while the R400 comes with a red laser pointer for you to highlight certain subjects on the slide.
SINGAPORE — October 27, 2009 — Today, Logitech introduced two options to help you make a big impact during your next presentation—the Logitech® Professional Presenter R800 and the Logitech® Wireless Presenter R400. With laser pointing, wireless convenience and intuitive slideshow controls that can be found by touch, Logitech’s new presenters give you the confidence to move freely around the room, so that you focus on delivering a more effective and powerful presentation.
Logitech Professional Presenter R800
The Logitech Professional Presenter R800 puts you in complete control of your presentation. To keep you focused on the crowd and not the clock, the Professional Presenter R800 provides an easy-to-set timer with silent, vibrating alerts. The timer, displayed on a 1-by-1/2-inch LCD, is large enough to see with a quick glance – and vibrates when you have five, two and zero minutes left to present. Once the timer hits zero, it begins counting upward for up to sixty minutes so you can see how far you’ve exceeded your time limit. When you’re moving around the room to engage your audience, at a range of up to 100 feet (30 meters), a reception-level indicator on the LCD keeps you from wandering too far. And, with a brilliant green laser pointer it’s easy to direct your audience’s attention to specific information from across the room – even on flat panel displays and in bright rooms.
Logitech Wireless Presenter R400
The Logitech Wireless Presenter R400 is designed to help you make your point in a smaller meeting room setting. The Wireless Presenter R400 provides a red laser pointer that is easy to see against most backgrounds. A battery power indicator ensures you always have the power you need to finish your presentation, while a range of up to 50 feet (15 meters) lets you move around the room for more engagement with your audience. And, the simple, compact design is easy to use and to take with you.
Both presenters feature a contoured shape that feels great in your hand, so you’ll be comfortable no matter how long the presentation lasts. And, to make setup and transport easier, both presenters are plug-and-play – no software required. When it’s time to pack up and go, the receiver stores in the presenter, while a carrying case ensures that that it is protected.
Pricing and Availability
The Logitech Professional Presenter R800 and the Wireless Presenter R400 is expected to be available in Singapore by 19 November 2009 at a suggested retail price of S$149 and S$89 respectively.
