Remote control unit for presentations featuring a capacitive type touch pad, model SSR-BT1, developed

We are pleased to announce the development of a remote control unit featuring a touch pad, suitable for presentation purposes and allowing mouse-like operations remotely.  Specifics of this product are outlined below.


In recent years, presentation opportunities have been provided at more business scenes and demand for remote control units with a laser pointer has grown in an attempt to make presentations more appealing and effective.  However, laser pointers are weak in the sense that projectors have become brighter, making the point indicated by the laser pointer somewhat hard to view during presentations.


This product is designed to respond to such a need by employing a PC pointer, such as an arrow, in place of a laser pointer.  The PC pointer can be easily operated by the thumb in a mouse-like manner. Adoption of Bluetooth® technology for the communication system frees users from the necessity of aiming the remote control unit at the equipment to be controlled.  Provision of a slide up/down button for the sliding operation of PowerPoint is another feature.  Further, tapping and screen scrolling functions can be added as an application.


Our marketing plan calls for approach to PC and projector manufacturers, as well as to stationery mail order houses and mass retailers for home electric appliances.
