Keyspan Announces Easy Presenter Remote

Peripheral maker Keyspan announced Thursday the Easy Presenter, a Radio Frequency (RF)-based remote control that lets users run presentation software like Microsoftis PowerPoint or Appleis Keynote.

The receiver connects to any available USB port and includes a laser pointer as well as volume control. The remote itself features controls including slide forward and back, volume up, down and mute, black screen, start presentation and exit presentation.

Keyspan claims the Easy Presenter remote works up to 60 feet from the base, the company said. It also includes a power switch to help conserve battery life when not in use and protective carrying pouch.

The remote is compatible with both Macs and PCs and will be available later this month for $39.
