Conduits Technologies, Inc. Releases Pocket Slides 1.6 for the Windows
Powered Pocket PC, Pocket PC 2002, and Handheld PC 2000.
TALLAHASSEE - June 25, 2002 - Conduits Technologies, Inc. announced
today the release of Pocket Slides 1.6, a fully featured presentation
solution for the Windows Powered Pocket PC, Pocket PC 2002,
and most recently, Handheld PC 2000 class of mobile devices.
Pocket Slides enables users to create, edit, 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. Pocket Slides incorporates
all the animations, transitions, and shapes of Microsoft®
With the use of a peripheral VGA card attached to the Pocket PC, Pocket
Slides enables the device to connect with a projector system, thus
alleviating the need for laptops. Pocket Slides will simultaneously
show the presentation onto the Pocket PC and the video display. 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.
Pocket Slides 1.6 improves upon the speed of earlier versions, using an
optimized rendering engine for presentations, offering up to a tenfold
increase in loading and presentation speeds. Animations and transitions
take advantage of these optimizations, resulting in higher framerates.
Pocket Slides 1.6 also includes a predictive memory allocation engine.
Before loading or presenting a slide show, Pocket Slides will confirm
that enough free program memory is available on the device to show a
presentation in its entirety, thus permitting users to present with the
confidence that last-minute memory warnings will not corrupt the display
of their presentation during a slide show.
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 can 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 can convert the Pocket
Slides document (.CPT) back into PowerPoint format (.PPT).
Pocket Slides is available for $39.95 from http://www.conduits.com.
