Systems has announced the Presenter-to-Go(tm) Springboard module for the
Handspring Visor. Presenter-to-Go allows Visor users to connect directly
to a digital projector and display high resolution presentations that have
been downloaded to their Visor. Now Visor owners can really show
off the power of the Springboard slot by ditching the laptop when it's
time for those major presentations.
with the Presenter-to-Go module is the following:
CD-ROM with a PC plug-in for PowerPoint and other PC applications
12" VGA Adapter cable with a power port
14-button Infrared remote control
Mini-adapter for direct connection to projectors
Presenter-to-Go works with all Visor models using Windows 98/98SE/Me
and can be connected to any 1024x768 monitor, display, or projector that
uses a standard VGA input. The Presenter-to-Go module has 2 MB of
memory and can hold up to 100 slides. The Visor's memory can also
be used for additional storage.
The PC software allows you to export data from any Windows application
into a slide. You can also use multiple applications in creating
your presentation. For example, you may use a table from Excel on
one slide and a PowerPoint screen on another.
you HotSync the presentation to your Visor, connect the Presenter-to-Go
module to the projector and plug in the AC adapter. Use the remote
control or the software on the Visor to control the presentation.

from your Visor. The Presenter-to-Go software also has features that
you would expect from any presentation software:

-Automatic/Manual slide show
-Store multiple presentations
-Remote advance, reverse, auto

you give yourself extra time to show off this module, as it will turn a lot of heads at that next meeting. The Presenter-to-Go module is yet another way that the Visor is changing the way that people look at handheld computers.
