SMK-Link Electronics to Unveil New PowerPoint® Presenters, a New Gyration® Air Mouse®, and Two New USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 Laptop Hubs at CES 2018
January 9th, 2018, Las Vegas, Nevada---SMK-Link Electronics, a subsidiary of SMK Electronics Corporation U.S.A., announced today that it will introduce several exciting new computer peripherals this week, including the mouse-capable RemotePoint® Air Point Presenter, an industry-first Gyration® Air Mouse® Presenter, and two new multi-port hubs for USB-C and Thunderbolt 3 laptops. See these and other exciting new SMK-Link products at International CES 2018 (LVCC #20851, South Hall-1).
“We’re pleased to be introducing several exciting new computer input devices at this year’s CES,” said John Blair, General Manager of Branded Products for SMK-Link Electronics. “Along with a new Gyration® Air Mouse® and two new USB-C/Thunderbolt 3 hubs, we’re introducing an ‘in air’ mouse-capable presentation remote: the Air Point Presenter—the newest member of our industry-acclaimed RemotePoint® family of presentation remote controls.
“Additionally, we’ll be introducing a new Gyration® Air Mouse®—the Air Mouse® Presenter,” continued Mr. Blair. “With large slide controls, a bright green laser pointer and motion-sensitive ‘in air’ mouse pointing, Air Mouse Presenter not only controls your slides, but clicks on the hyperlinks within them: links to other slides, websites, multimedia content and more. With a range of up to 75 feet, Air Mouse Presenter is a perfect tool to enable complete handheld computer control from anywhere in the room.
“Finally, we’ll be launching two exciting new USB-C Hubs this year,” added Mr. Blair. “Today’s ultra-slim laptops are among the most powerful ever produced. Yet, typically, they’re equipped with only USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 ports for device connectivity. Our new family of USB-C hubs corrects this oversight—adding multiple high-speed USB 3.1 ports and an HDMI 4K video port for viewing on external devices."
