Product Info


Computers took over presentations from Overhead Projectors. With those, you not only had to hover over the contraption, but also develop an equatorial tolerance for heat. Computer display projectors get just as hot or worse, but you don�t have to stay close to them. Ah, progress.

Impatica�s Showmate represents even more progress, as it frees you from hiding behind the computer screen, or even lugging your laptop around. If your PowerPoint presentations are simpler than mine, you�ll be ecstatic with it.
