By far the most exciting product offered by Anoto is a PowerPoint® add-in called Anoto penPresenter. It utilizes the Anoto digital pen and Bluetooth® technology, enabling real-time collaboration during presentations. Users can make notes or sketch on their printed PowerPoint® slides using an Anoto Digital Pen and instantly see them appear on their computer, projector, monitor or flat screen LCD screen. The slide can then be saved, printed or e-mailed.

Geetesh: Can you share some scenarios in which PowerPoint users can benefit from the Anoto penPresenter?

Ebba: Anoto penPresenter allows users to have a more engaged audience in a meeting room environment and put focus on the meeting itself.

Scenarios in which users can benefit from include, having to use an electronic whiteboard and not being able to easily transport it from room to room or floor to floor. They aren’t as portable as penPresenter.

Have you ever needed to transcribe notes for data entry after a meeting? Or have you ever brainstormed an idea on a whiteboard only to have it erased before anyone “took notes”?

Anoto penPresenter allows you to make notes and sketches on your PowerPoint® slides with the Anoto Digital Pen and see the results instantly on the meeting room screen. Later on, they can easily be saved, printed and emailed to the meeting room participants.

Most importantly, have you ever tried to do something to make your PowerPoint® slides more engaging? Anoto penPresenter enhances your slides in creative ways and you certainly won’t put people to sleep with them!
