Logitech announced Spotlight Presentation Remote

A new age and revolutionary presentation remote, advanced beyond laser pointing at your presentation slides on the screen, allowing you to highlight and magnify on-screen content, engaging your audience even better. This is the latest device announced by Logitech, the Spotlight Presentation Remote.

This is an interesting device, giving presenters something more useful, powerful and fun to work with, a breakaway from the normal routine of presentation and preparation. For those who have to do presentations regularly, the Logitech Spotlight Presentation Remote would be something to consider!

Let me share with you more information, details and pictures on the Logitech Spotlight Presentation Remote –

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.

“Presentations are nerve-wracking,” said Moninder Jain, Managing Director, ASEAN and Vice-President of 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. What’s more, the app will be updated with additional features over time, so you’ll 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.

Key Features

  • Highlight and magnify on screen: Go beyond traditional laser pointing with an advanced pointer system that precisely highlights or magnifies areas of focus in pixel-perfect detail. Create an impression that is visible to in-person audiences and on video conferences.

  • Mouse-like cursor control: Use the on-screen cursor to play and pause videos, open links, and enjoy a range of rich content interaction.

  • Smart time management: Spotlight tracks your presenting time and reminds you when it’s time to wrap up. You can also activate vibration alerts through the Logitech Presentation app, which allows you to remain focused on the presentation and not the clock.

  • Versatile connectivity and compatibility: Connect Spotlight to your computer via USB receiver and Bluetooth® Smart technology. It works with Windows, Mac OS and all popular presentation platforms including PowerPoint, Keynote, PDF, Google Slides and Prezi.

  • Quick recharging and extended range: Spotlight can be quick charged in one minute for three hours of use. It also has a 30-meter (100-ft)* operating range so you can move and present freely, even in large size rooms.

“eSports athletes are extremely picky and demanding, and we love it,” said Moninder Jain, Managing Director, ASEAN and Vice-President of Logitech. “We give them access to our prototype designs early and often, and let them rip ’em apart. The result is the Pro Gaming Keyboard with ultra-fast switches, durable construction, and a tenkeyless design that’s easy to transport. If you play to win, this is your keyboard.”

“This is a great keyboard because it’s small, durable, and tenkeyless. This allows me to have more space on my table,” said C9’s Jake “Stewie2K” Yip. “The Romer-G switches are nice and quiet, and they’re super comfortable to type on.”

Logitech G Pro Gaming mouse

Logitech G recently announced a new mouse to their lineup, the Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse, for eSports players and also for those who love gaming.

Let me share with you more details of the Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse –

Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) announced the Logitech® G Pro Gaming Mouse. Designed for eSports athletes, this new gaming mouse features Logitech’s most accurate optical gaming sensor, a metal spring button tensioning system, onboard memory for driver-free operation on tournament systems, and a comfortable, durable yet lightweight design. The Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse builds on the heritage and global popularity of the Logitech G100s shape with top competitive eSports professionals, and combines it with the incredible speed, accuracy and responsiveness of the G303.

“The benefit of working with eSports players is that they tell us what they like, and more importantly, what they don’t like,” said Moninder Jain, Managing Director, ASEAN and Vice-President of Logitech. “Our new Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse takes what eSports pros loved about the G100s and G303 and combines it into a mouse that we’re confident will meet their standards.”

“Competing at the top level requires a well-built mouse,” said Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham of Cloud 9 CS:GO. “After working closely with Logitech and extensive testing, the new Pro Gaming Mouse is my preferred mouse. With a comfortable shape and top-of-the-line sensor, I never have problems picking off my enemies.”

Key Features

  • Advanced Optical Gaming Sensor: Consistent, pixel-precise accuracy makes a critical difference in high-stakes competitive gameplay. The PMW3366 sensor delivers a level of precision widely considered to be the best by enthusiasts and professionals alike. With zero smoothing, filtering or acceleration across the entire DPI range (200-12,000DPI), it provides exceptional tracking accuracy and consistent responsiveness at any speed.

  • Metal Spring Button Tensioning System: The metal spring button tensioning system in the Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse enhances the consistency of the left and right mouse buttons and helps reduce the force required to click. This ensures a crisp, reliable click performance you can depend on at the highest level of competition.

  • Comfortable, Durable and Lightweight Design: The Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse is optimized to reduce weight, helping improve comfort, stability and responsiveness. Every aspect of the engineering is rigorously tested to make sure it can stand up to even the most intense gaming. The top surface of the Pro Gaming Mouse is treated with a special coating to improve durability and grip, and the left and right buttons are tested to exceed 20 million clicks – the equivalent of a pro gamer training 10 hours every day for two years.

  • Driver-free Operation for Tournament Systems. The Logitech G Pro Gaming Mouse lets you save your exact DPI settings, button assignments, and lighting configuration via Logitech Gaming Software (LGS) to the onboard memory in the mouse, so you’ll never have to worry about whether your setup is right.

First and foremost, let me start off with the package, the nice looking box when it first arrived. The Jaybird Freedom box has a nice feel with a well thought out design and layout. Take a look as I started to unbox and displayed all the items that were packed inside the box. One nice feature of this package is that Jaybird gives customers a small pouch to keep the Jaybird Freedom wireless earphones, charger and cable.

There are two aesthetics aspects of Jaybird Freedom wireless bluetooth earphones that makes it stand out and unique for the music lovers. They are the

  • All-metal housing
  • Silicone ear fins

(1) All-metal housing

The Jaybird Freedom wireless earphones is made up of elegant and premium sand-blasted metal material. This not only gives this pair of Jaybird Freedom wireless buds its unique style, it also improves its durability to its special micro-sized wireless ear buds. With all the top engineering processes, innovation and design, the Jaybird Freedom is a premium, iconic, sturdy, small, lightweight yet powerful wireless earphones to suit almost every music lover. Last but not least, the all-metal housing removes all distortion, giving music lovers the experiences of not just an incredible sound, the noise isolation feature sometimes feels like a noise cancellation feature at times!

(2) Silicone ear fins

In my personal humble opinion, the silicone ear fins are another feature that makes the Jaybird Freedom wireless earphones unique. For a start, users might take some time before they get used to the design and fit inside the ear. You can choose to wear your Jaybird Freedom over-ear sport-fit with fins or over-ear sport-fit without fins or under-ear with fins or under-ear without fins. It’s your personal choice whether you want to have the ear-fins or without ear-fins. There are 4 different ear fins sizes (XS, S, M, L) inside the package and they fit in nicely for sporty/outdoors lifestyle e.g. running, biking, trekking. From a personal perspective, put on the silicone ear fins when you are doing sports/outdoors. Do take note on how to attach the ear fins, look out for the letters R (right) and L (left) on the top side of the circle.

Let me continue on with the other components that come with the Jaybird Freedom.

Silicone ear tips and Comply ear tips

There are 2 types of ear tips, they come in 3 different sizes for each type of ear tips, to suit your needs and requirements.

Cable

The length of the Jaybird Freedom wireless earphones cable is just nice in my opinion, not too long in length if not it would dangle down and get caught on to other objects. There are cord clips available to shorten the cable behind the neck, you can adjust the length to your liking and preference. Jaybird also gives customers another additional accessory option, a shirt clip is inside the package, that allows the user to attach the cable to their shirt, ideal when going for sports/outdoor activities.

Bluetooth connection

The bluetooth connection between the earphones and devices are smooth, easy to setup and connect.

The battery life of the Jaybird Freedom wireless buds is 4 hours with additional 4 hours if the charger clip is attached to the earphones (with on the go charging).

For all the techies, music lovers, the next two areas would be of great interest to you –

Sound

First and foremost, I do not claim to be an audiophile, as much as I love listening to my different types of music on my Spotify with my earphones while traveling between places or during my sports activities. What I am sharing here would be my personal thoughts, views and experiences on the Jaybird Freedom wireless buds.

The Jaybird Freedom wireless produces a clear and sharp treble, with solid and strong bass without being overwhelming. One key and very interesting unique feature is that the user is able to utilise the MySound App, choose, adjust and customise the low, mid range and high range of their sound/music preset to their music/hearing preference.

MySound App

When I first heard of an app for the Jaybird Freedom wireless buds, to be honest with everybody here, I wasn’t sure how good it can be or how useful it would be. You have to try the MySound app, I was told and reminded.

Since I am reviewing this pair of Jaybird Freedom wireless buds, I have to try it. Once I started using it, I was completely blown away by its features, functionalities and capabilities. This MySound app is a must use for Jaybird Freedom owners!

  • Nice and easy to user user interface
  • Presets available for you to choose and add to the app dashboard
  • Customise your own preset
  • Battery life indicator on app

The sound quality of the Jaybird Freedom by itself is already pretty solid and awesome. With this MySound app, you can tune it, to your own hard rock mega bass musician style or the soothing and clear classical music style.

I would just like to highlight some observations when I was using the MySound app with the Jaybird Freedom wireless buds

  • Discrepancy between earphone announcement of battery life versus battery life indicator on the app
  • Jaybird Freedom earphones are paired, connected and playing music but MySound app says no earphones connected

I would like to emphasis that these observations DO NOT affect the excellent and powerful sound quality produced by the Jaybird Freedom wireless buds nor does it affect your listening and usage experience.

Overall, the Jaybird Freedom wireless buds are a remarkable pair of wireless bluetooth earphones. They are small, lightweight and powerful bluetooth wireless earphones. It is secure and fits into your ears. The noise blocking / noise isolation is very good, the Jaybird Freedom wireless buds owner is in a music world of their own! The design is trendy, bright and colourful, suitable for sporty, outdoors, leisure and daily usage earphones. It is sweat proof , they would be suitable for a number of sports/outdoor activities.

In my personal humble opinion, the Jaybird Freedom is an ideal choice for your pair of wireless bluetooth earphones, a worthy investment for music fans who are sporty/outdoors and also for their daily leisure usage.
