Devices Empower Business Professionals, Educators and Public Speakers to Easily Control Presentations within Various Venues

Mississauga, ON., August 2, 2016 – Canon Canada Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today announced the PR10-G, PR100-R and PR1000-R Handheld Presenters featuring easy-to-see green or red beams, a backlit LCD, timer and slide control features to help provide dynamic flexibility for business professionals, educators, students and lecturers to move away from the podium and deliver an effective presentation.


Compatible with PowerPoint®, Keynote®1, Adobe PDF® and Mac iOS Preview files, these new products feature wireless slide operation via USB plug-in receiver2.  Requiring no setup, users can connect immediately and move freely around a conference room, lecture hall or classroom from up to 100 feet away3 with the PR10-G and up to 50 feet3 for the PR100-R and PR1000-R to maintain control of presentations – including images and volume4 – without needing to ask a partner to change slides.


The PR1000-R features a red laser for the more traditional user, the PR100-R features a red laser with doubled intensityand the PR10-G features a green laser that is eight times5 more visible than the red laser, which is ideal for presentations in brightly lit environments, including convention halls and outdoor locations.


The PR10-G and PR100-R Handheld Presenters also provide features to help speakers maintain focus on the crowd and not the clock. A backlit LCD Smart Timer, ideal for dim environments, displays a countdown of the remaining time in a presentation, letting speakers know how long they’ve been talking and when it might be time to bring the presentation to a close. Additionally, both models include a vibrating alert to notify the speaker that time is almost up.


All presenter models are designed to comfortably hold in your hand for extended presentations. Simple button layouts allow users to easily distinguish between keys by touch and take full control without needing to glance at the device while presenting.


Availability and Pricing
The estimated selling price for the PR10-G, PR100-R and PR1000-R Handheld Presenters are $109.99, $79.99, and $39.99 (MSRP)6, respectively. The PR10-G is available in metallic black, the PR100-R is available in black and the PR1000-R is available in silver.
