      The purpose of this tutorial is to demonstrate the process of using a Smart Pointer to view presentations and video in Hudl.

      Hudl gives you the option to wirelessly control your video playback. This can be used online with Hudl Presentations and video playback from your video library, and offline with Hudl Presenter.  Using a Smart Pointer makes it easy to transition your video without having to be next to your computer or use a mouse. Connecting the Smart Pointer is quick and easy.

      Smart Pointers are inexpensive, and can be purchased on satechi.net, click on the link below for additional information on purchasing your own Smart Pointer to use with Hudl.


      The Smart Pointer remote will work in both Windows and Mac environments but will only work on Hudl.com at this time.

      Using the Smart Pointer

      1. To connect your Smart Pointer, simply plug the USB receiver into a USB Port. The pointer will work automatically, installing itself as a wireless keyboard(You may notice a driver installation window, this installation should take less than 30 seconds and must finish before you can use the remote).
      2. Make sure the switch on the side of the remote (see the image below) is in the down position for presentation mode. 
      3. Based on the image, the following commands will be available:
        • Up
          • Single click: Previous clip/slide
          • Hold button: Rewind
        • Down
          • Single click: Next clip/slide
          • Hold button: Fast Forward
        • Right
          • Single click: Play or Pause video
          • Hold button: Slow Forward
        • Left –
          • Single click: Restart Video
          • Hold button: Slow Rewind
        • Start – Doesn’t do anything in Hudl, currently.
        • Pause – Doesn’t do anything in Hudl, currently.
      4. To stop using the Smart Pointer, remove the USB receiver from the USB port.

    The laser is stuck in the on position and will not shut off. As a result, I can not use any of the other functions on the remote. Please advise.

    • A.

      This is usually a sign that the batteries in the device are close to being dead. Please try replacing them with a fresh set.

    • A.

      There are no special drivers for SP400 Wireless Presenter, it is a plug and play device.

      Please reboot your system and make sure the USB stick of the presenter is not plugged when you do that. After the Mac fully starts up, plug in the USB stick and in a couple of seconds your Mac should recognize it.

    Good service I train teachers and so I bought 6 pointers for my students. They came fast and look great. I hope to buy more next May. Is there a chance I could get more than a 10% discount? Thanks.

    Overall, Happy This review is from: Satechi SP400 Smart-Pointer (Silver) 2.4Ghz RF Wireless Presenter with Mouse Function and Laser Pointer (Office Product)
    I'm very happy with my choice to purchase the Satechi SP400 Smart-Pointer. As one reviewer mentioned, you can hear a slight click sound when you push the buttons. But I'm not in a totally silent room, and then I'm also talking even when advancing to the next slide, so no one notices the sound.

    The only feature I would like added is that when you use the start presentation button on the remote when in PowerPoint, I wish that it would start the slideshow at whatever slide is highlighted in the PowerPoint outline. It always starts the presentation back at the beginning. Whereas, if you use the start slideshow button in PowerPoint, it actually starts the slideshow at the slide where the cursor is located. It would be nice to have the option to have it start/resume the presentation at the slide that was last presented or where the mouse cursor it. I have to switch from PowerPoint to other apps and back again, and can't use the remote mouse to restart my presentation because it would restart at the beginning.

    But I don't know if there is any remote mouse on the market that does resume/start the slideshow at the location where the mouse cursor is located. (if there is, please someone let me know which remote mouse does that). So overall, I'm very happy with the SmartPointer. It looks nice, is comfortable in my hand, installed quickly, is easy to use, and makes giving presentations so much easier.

    slick unit to present with my macbook pro I liked this overall product, the usb plug in and the size of the wireless presenter. Furthermore the travel case for the unit was handy. I also liked the 2 triple A batteries rather than a hard to find battery that some of the other recommended presenters require.

    I did note early on in my trial runs that the start button did not work for my macbook pro. It requires further programming on my mac so the f5 command from the Satechi presenter keys into the Keynote presentation for the "on" or "play" command. I followed the directions at the Satechi site and it did not fix the problem. I found some instructions in the amazon reviews.

    Here is a tip for Keynote users on the Mac. The remote is set up with non-programmable buttons, so the F5 button (designed for PowerPoint) doesn't work for starting your Keynote presentations...but it can. The trick is to change the keyboard shortcut in Keynote for Play Slideshow from cmd-option-P to F5. On Mac OS X v10.4+ you can go to System Preferences > Keyboard & Mouse and then the Keyboard Shortcuts tab. Click on the + icon to add a new shortcut. Choose Keynote as the application*, 'Play Slideshow' as the Menu Title, and then when you get to the Keyboard Shortcut box, hit the F5 button on the remote and it should insert F5 in the box (making sure, of course, that the USB receiver is plugged in to your Mac). Click on Add and you're all set. The next time you launch Keynote the new mapping will be in effect and you can now use the F5 button on the remote to start your slideshow. Hold down the F5 button for about 7 seconds to send ESCAPE, thus exiting the running slidehow.

    Works well Just Learn it Not bad. Dig deep, learn all about plusses and minuses, and you will be on your way to giving excellent performances. There is a lot on the market to choose from, but I can tell you this product does what it says it can, and well.

    Satechi SP400 Powerpoint Pointer It is a great product. Was hoping the transmitter could be smaller or be attached to the main pointer so that it could be easier to carry around.

    Used for Prezi presentations on PC Great sleek little remote/red laser pointer. Comes with 2 AAA batteries and a compact black case with interior pockets to hold everything. Worked instantly (plug and play) with my Dell laptop but not at all when I tried to use it on a colleague's Lenovo. His computer wouldn't "recognize" the USB in any of the ports for some reason. I typically get a "New Hardware Found/Installed" when I plug it into my laptop but this message never appeared on his. Lesson being- if you're about to give a presentation on an unfamiliar computer try out the hardware ahead of time to avoid last-minute panicking!

    Unfortunately it is currently impossible to use the wireless remote in the "full screen" mode of Prezi. There is a way around this! Check the Prezi forum for full "work around" instructions, but my short-hand version of it (from the Prezi site):
    1. Select the presentation
    2. Click "Edit Prezi"
    3. Press the space bar so that you are in the "show" mode
    4. Press "M" so that the toolbars will disappear (I'm not sure if this actually works..I press "M" repeatedly and nothing happens but after a while the toolbars disappear. So, I'm not sure if those toolbars would have just disappeared anyway after a given amount of time or if the "M" function actually works.)

    Your configuration may be different, but with my laptop, I press "down" on the remote to move forward in the path,"up" to move backwards, "left" to zoom out, "right" to zoom in. However, I have read this is not the same configuration for most people. Others usually have "left/right" to move forward/backwards and up/down for zoom in/out.
