Logitech Addresses Modern Presentation Needs with the Spotlight Remote

Posted by at 9:01 am on February 1, 2017

It is meeting time. Ok, the idea alone can the bring out sadness in all us. Not only just to people watching the Powerpoint or Keynote, the presenter too.  Even if they have a good slide desk and are a good speaker, so many times you must live through them trying to get the machine to work with the big screen or the projector and loop in the removed attendees.  Once that is done then you must live through them have issues controlling the presentation. Now if you are really lucky you could be the one chosen to move the slides for them.

Then there is the laser pointer, if they have one.  Nothing like getting that flashed into your eyes as they walk around the room. Just ask Houston Texans quarterback Brock Osweiler, if you never have had the fun.  And does a laser pointer work well in the modern meeting where you can have  people from around the world attending. No, it does not!  “What line of numbers at you point at?”

Then there is the poor woman or man who’s job it is as the meeting presenter to give out the information and make you learn it.  All while doing battling to get the meeting up and running for everyone who needs to see, they also need to look like they know what they are doing and get the job done within the allotted time. Plus these days, most people who give out the information are not professional presenters.  They are just the poor person that knows the product or system.

So while the new Logitech Spotlight Remote may not be as exciting to some of you as reading about a new gaming keyboard or mouse, it does address many issues with giving and viewing a presentation  during today’s modern meeting.  After-all we are all just one manager’s pick of having to attend or give one ourselves.

The Spotlight presentation remote control is newest addition to Logitech business portfolio.  While it is aimed at marketing professionals who need to give multimedia presentations all the time, is so easy to use, everyone will want one.  (Full review is coming).

It supports both Windows and Mac; and software such as Powerpoint, Keynote, PDF, Google Slides and Prezi.  The minimalist design of this three-button controller contains a ton of easy to use power, while still feeling great in hand. The designers of the software and hardware did a great job of keeping it simple but powerful.

The motion-sensitive Spotlight uses its own software to highlight and magnify specific areas on your slides or screen. Remote viewers are no longer left in the dark!  The software can also provide an on-screen cursor which can be used to play video clips or click on web links.

The Spotlight supports Bluetooth connectivity or you can use the small USB receiver, which can be stored in the unit itself. The remote lets you be up to 100 ft from your PC or Mac during your presentations.

There is more, but we are saving that for all full review.

It sports a metallic design in Gold, Slate, and Silver to match Apple’s laptop line, as well as many of the Ultrabooks running Windows a real contrast to the chunky lumps of plastic in its earlier Presenter range.

The spotlight costs $129.99 in the US. For the first month the remote can only be purchased at Apple Stores or the Loigitech web store in the United States. The remote is backed by 2-year limited hardware warranty.
