The New Logitech Spotlight Presentation Remote

by on February 1st, 2017



Yesterday Logitech gave me a demo of the new Logitech Spotlight Presentation Remotebut before that they sent me one to test out. When I unboxed it I immediately notice the sleek and sexy look of what may be the best looking presentation remote out there. Once you pick up the Logitech Spotlight Presentation Remoteyou will quickly notice how light weight it is and also how well ergonomically it fits in your hand.

  • Advanced pointer system​ thats better than a laser.Engage with your audience and focus their attention on what matters.
  • 3D cursor control ​to play video or open links. Move your cursor from anywhere in the room and be the master of your content.
  • Time management​ with vibration alerts. Receive a vibration 5min before the end of the presentation to always be on time.
  • Quick charge​ 1 min – 3 hours of presentation. The battery last up to 3 month. No need to turn the product on, we manage that for you.
  • Long range​ 30 meters (100 feet). No more barrier between you and your audience, move freely in the room and control your presentation.

Logitech Transforms Presentations With Spotlight: Highlight, Magnify and More

TEDs New Preferred Remote, Spotlight Can Help You Become a More Confident Presenter

LAUSANNE, Switzerland and NEWARK, Calif. Feb. 1, 2017 Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) announced a complete reinvention of presentation control with the Logitech Spotlight Presentation Remote. Unlike the traditional slide clicker or laser pointer of the past, Spotlight is designed to help you become a more confident presenter. Spotlight is an advanced tool that goes well beyond laser pointing, and enables you to highlight and magnify on-screen content in an engaging and powerful way so you can better underscore your point.

Tweet now: Play it. Show it. Time it. Crush it. @Logitech introduces Spotlight Presentation Remote for confident presenting. Learn More: http://blog.logitech.com/?p=25520

Presentations are nerve-wracking, said Marcel Stolk, senior vice president of the Creativity and Productivity business group at Logitech. For most, the main stumbling block is a lack of confidence we just get nervous. Spotlight is easier to use and, most importantly, gives you new ways to engage your audience versus a hard-to-see laser pointer.

Spotlight is a new standard in presentation control. It allows you to effortlessly navigate slides and interact with on-screen content from up to 100 feet away. With the advanced pointer system you can highlight and magnify points on your slide in pixel-perfect detail, so the audience stays engaged throughout your talk. Spotlight also has mouse-like cursor control to play videos and open links, and unlike a laser, the cursor and highlights are visible to both a live audience and those on a video conference.

Spotlight pairs with a powerful app so you can set the stage even before your presentation begins. In the app you can toggle pointer mode, set timed vibration alerts or activate more advanced functions like volume control with hand gestures. Whats more, the app will be updated with additional features over time, so youll always have access to the latest in presentation functionality with Spotlight.

We know how important reliable technology is for helping speakers feel confident on stage, said Lisa Choi Owens, head of global partnerships at TED. Using technologies like Logitech Spotlight allows our speakers to focus on their talks, and deliver ideas worth spreading.

Logitech Spotlight also connects instantly via USB receiver or Bluetooth Smart technology. It is plug-and-play on most devices and compatible with all popular presentation apps. Plus, it features smart recharging one minute of charge gives three hours of use so you will never be caught off guard.

Logitech and TED plan to launch a worldwide search for aspiring communicators who will be invited to participate in an exclusive Spotlight Presentation Academy at the TED Theater in New York. Armed with a Spotlight presentation remote, attendees will have the opportunity to work with industry experts to enhance their presentation skills. Through this program, the two companies aim to inspire and support communities of presenters and idea-sharers worldwide. More details regarding the search will be announced in the coming weeks.

Availability

Logitech Spotlight Presentation Remote is available today from Logitech and Apple for a suggested retail price of $129.99, and will be available from additional retailers worldwide in March.

Today they announced the new Logitech K780 Multi- Device wireless keyboard which offers quiet and responsive typing, 10 key number pad, USB and Bluetooth® Smart technology, and connects to multiple devices like your PC, Tablet, or Smartphone.

The K780 Multi-Device offers quiet and responsive typing. The keys are large and carefully scooped for typing comfort and precision, while a convenient 10-key pad makes it easy to enter numbers. An integrated rubber slot with a soft finish securely cradles a variety of mobile devices at a perfect reading angle, from smartphones to the 12” iPad ProTM. The keyboard is slim and solidly built, designed to look good in a modern home or office environment.

The K780 Multi-Device adapts to your devices, so whether you are using a Windows® PC or iPhone®, the key layout is familiar and you can even access your favorite shortcuts. With both a Logitech Unifying™ USB and Bluetooth® Smart technology, you can choose the best way to connect to your computer, phone or tablet.

With a power-saving idle mode and an on/off switch, the K780 Multi-Device offers up to 24-months of battery life – plenty of time to get used to a new way of multi-tasking, by typing on all your devices with a single keyboard.

Gift Guide for Bluetooth or Wi-Fi Speakers

by on December 7th, 2015

Speakers

 

I got in allot of Bluetooth speakers to check out that are all in different price. I decided besides just photo’s I would record each product to the same song and same sound frequency to see the difference of them all. I chose the song Everlong by the foo fighters because I thought it would be great since it goes from slow to rock in the first 30 seconds plus I love Dave Grohl (who doesn’t).

Below you will find videos and specs of the 5 speakers so you can decide which one is right for your price point.ECOPEBBLE

Ecogear Pebbe Bluetooth Waterpoof Wireless Speaker is the perfect speaker for the outdoor adventurous music lover. It’s definitely rugged and I have tried it in the water playing music which for being under water the sound quality was not that bad. The Ecogear Pebbe Bluetooth Waterpoof Wireless Speaker has an easy plug and play it feature which means after I synced my Bluetooth the my phone and bingo it started working immediately. It currently goes for $59.99 their site and comes in three colors: orange, blue, or black.

 

Specs for the Ecogear Pebbe Bluetooth Waterpoof Wireless Speaker

  • IPX7 Waterproof. Fully submersible in Water

  • Aux-In Audio Connection
  • Mounting Options via ¼ 20” Camera mount screw post
  • Nylon Lanyard & Carabineer Clip

EU

UE ROLL is so far the best speaker for me personally. It’ circular shape offers a 360 audio experience and had stronger base then the others I tried (besides the Sonos). Since the speaker is water proof it also comes with a floatation device to hold the speaker perfectly. Since its wireless and Bluetooth plus being water resistant this is the perfect speaker for the lake. It’s currently on com and the pricing starts at $89.00.

  • TypeSpeaker battery – rechargeable – lithium ion

The AYL Soundfit IPX5 Water Resistant Speaker was a pleasant surprise. Though I think the casing is a bit clunky the sound is great and the greatest feature is you can hang in the shower so you can rock out (believe you me I will be using this in the shower till I have to give it back). It’s also great for those who are active bicyclist, runners, hikers, and climbing since its shock proof. It’s currently $29.00 on Amazon but only 2 are left!AYL

  • Micro USB Charging
  • Bluetooth 4.0 Chip

Sonos 1I also had to throw in Sono’s Play 1 even though there is a new version and it’s not Bluetooth but it is Wi-Fi. The main reason I’m including it is not only is the sound amazing (I have 4 throughout my condo) but they are running a special right now for 2 Room Starter Set for only $349.00. To check out this deal click

by on November 11th, 2015

Logi CREATE Keyboard Case_RedA unique follow-up to yesterday’s post of the iPad Pro today Logitech unveiled its first accessories designed in collaboration with Apple. See full press release below.

NEWARK, Calif. — Nov. 11, 2015 — Today Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) unveiled its first accessories designed in collaboration with Apple to perfectly complement the aesthetics and features of the new iPad Pro™: the Logi CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case with Smart Connector and the Logi CREATE Protective Case with Any-angle Stand. The Logi CREATE Keyboard Case is the first third-party keyboard on the market to leverage Apple’s new Smart Connector™, eliminating the need to power on, connect or charge the keyboard.

Tweet now: Logitech unveils its first cases designed for the new #iPadPro. Make more possible. Get more done. http://blog.logitech.com/?p=24184

“The iPad Pro coupled with iOS 9 opens new ways to create, work and play on the tablet,” said Michele Hermann, vice president of mobility at Logitech. “With this in mind, we worked closely with Apple to design the Logi CREATE, and unleash even more possibilities. The result is a functional yet beautiful case, and the best iPad keyboard we’ve ever created. From compatibility with the Apple Smart Connector to the color and finish of the keyboard, every detail was meticulously crafted to perfectly complement the iPad Pro.”

Logi CREATE Any-Angle Case_Hinge RedBoth Logi CREATE products offer thin and light front and back protection, and the tightly-woven premium fabric resists accidental bumps, scratches and spills. Highlights of the cases include:

The Logi CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case with Smart Connector

The Logi CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case is designed to work exclusively with Apple’s new Smart Connector for seamless communication between the iPad Pro and the keyboard. Through leveraging the Smart Connector, the Logi CREATE keyboard automatically powers on and securely connects with the iPad Pro when placed in the typing position – no Bluetooth® pairing needed. And because the keyboard is powered by the iPad Pro, you never have to think about charging your keyboard again.

The Logi CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case is built for productivity. The keyboard features full-size

19 mm keys, adjustable backlighting and an intuitive layout, helping you take full advantage of the iPad Pro’s expansive workspace and new iOS® 9 features. The iOS shortcut keys also put the power of your favorite apps at your fingertips – you can activate search and media controls without ever leaving the keyboard. The case provides two viewing angles, so you can make the most of the iPad Pro’s big, beautiful screen whether you’re posting an update, watching videos, or using the Apple Pencil to take notes. The Logi CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case is available for a suggested retail price of $149.99.

The Logi CREATE Protective Case with Any-angle Stand

The Logi CREATE Protective Case with Any-angle Stand adjusts to whatever adventure comes your way. The case’s flexible stand has a hidden hinge that firmly holds your iPad Pro in the perfect viewing angle within a 60-degree range. Place the iPad Pro upright in the stand for watching video in comfort or nearly flat for sketching with the Apple Pencil – there’s an angle for nearly every activity or work setup. The Logi CREATE protects the front and back of your iPad Pro without adding unnecessary bulk or weight. The Logi CREATE Protective Case with Any-angle Stand is available for a suggested retail price of $79.99.

The Logi CREATE Backlit Keyboard Case and the Logi CREATE Protective Case with Any-angle Stand are available in a variety of colors including black, red or blue. Both are expected to be available online and in Apple stores in the U.S., and select countries in Europe and Asia beginning November 2015, at the same time the iPad Pro becomes available.
