Conduits Technologies, Inc. Releases Pocket Slides 1.5 for the Windows 
Powered Pocket PC 2002


TALLAHASSEE - February 11, 2002 - Conduits Technologies, Inc. announced 
today the release of Pocket Slides 1.5, a fully featured presentation 
solution for the Windows Powered Pocket PC 2002 Software.

Pocket Slides enables users to create, view or give presentations using 
a mobile device. Existing presentations from Microsoft® PowerPoint® may 
be copied to the device with the aid of the drag-and-drop conversion 
that Pocket Slides offers. Closely mirroring the functionality of 
Microsoft® PowerPoint®, Pocket Slides incorporates a myriad of creative 
animations, transitions, varied fonts, text colors, and shapes. 

Pocket Slides marks the first occasion for users of Pocket PC 2002 to 
give a presentation using solely their Pocket PC device.  With the use 
of a peripheral VGA card attached to the Pocket PC, Pocket Slides 
enables the device to connect with a projector system, alleviating
the need for laptops.

Pocket Slides supports a range of video output devices, and will 
simultaneously display the presentation onto the Pocket PC and the video 
output. Slide Show Mode allows the Pocket PC to hook-up to a monitor or 
projector thereby used to give presentations to an audience.  Pocket 
Slides 1.5 expands on the existing support for the Colorgraphic 
Voyager VGA card by adding support for the Margi Presenter-to-Go VGA 
card and the LifeView FlyJacket iPAQ Expansion sleeve.

Pocket Slides also supports the attachment of a serial mouse or remote 
pointing tool to the Pocket PC, thereby enabling the speaker to be a 
distance away from the Pocket PC while presenting.  Support for consumer 
infrared remotes is included, thus avoiding the need for serial cables.  
By using any standard household infrared remote control, the user may 
press any button to step through the presentation. The infrared remotes
bundled with the Margi Presenter-to-Go and the LifeView FlyJacket are
now supported with Pocket Slides 1.5, which enable the presenter 
to navigate backward and forward in a presentation.

During a presentation, Pocket Slides can optionally rotate the display 
of the slide on the device; the user is presented with a 320x240 view of 
their presentation on their Pocket PC screen, while the output to the 
VGA card is done in the VGA resolution, up to 1024x768.  The device 
display and the VGA displays are independent, so the user may choose to 
display the speaker notes on the device, and the presentation on the VGA 
output.

Presentations can be created on the device itself, or existing 
Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentations can be converted from the desktop.  
The conversion process for opening Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentations 
is designed to be as seamless as possible. Pocket Slides installs with 
an ActiveSync file filter that will convert from PowerPoint® format to 
Pocket Slides format when the user drags a PowerPoint® presentation to 
their device. Future versions of Pocket Slides will allow for reading 
PowerPoint® files directly, and will be a free upgrade for registered 
users.

The editing capability of Pocket Slides allows the user to tailor a 
presentation to their audience on-the-go, or to create one without the 
need of a desktop computer.  After converting an existing presentation 
or creating a new one, the user may add or delete slides; add, delete, 
or edit shapes and text on slides; and edit the properties of the 
presentation such as animation settings and custom slide shows.  After 
editing a presentation on the device, the user may convert the Pocket 
Slides document (.CPT) back into PowerPoint format (.PPT).  Pocket 
Slides converts the files when the user performs a drag-and-drop 
operation in ActiveSync from the device to the desktop.  Reverse 
conversion can also be applied to presentations that were created solely 
on the device, or from a template on the device.

Pocket Slides is available for $39.95 from http://www.conduits.com.
