Impatica ShowMate

Screen Projection Overview

ShowMate is a small, lightweight device to project PowerPoint presentations and screen contents wirelessly from a smartphone. Use the ShowMate to give wireless, real-time demonstrations and training of handheld applications and features. And of course the ShowMate still allows you to project high quality PowerPoint presentations right from your handheld.

Simply attach the ShowMate to the VGA port of any projector or monitor and your handheld delivers your PowerPoint presentation wirelessly using Bluetooth technology. You can now roam the stage and interact with the audience to deliver a more engaging presentation, without being tethered to a laptop. In fact, you can now travel laptop free!

How It Works

Connect the pocket-sized ShowMate to a projector or monitor and click on the Impatica Screen Projector application icon on your smartphone. The contents of your handheld screen are then transmitted to the ShowMate via Bluetooth or USB (BlackBerry only) and displayed on any VGA device, without noticeable delay.

The screen projection capability is included with ShowMate version 2.3.1 (2.4.0 for newer (e.g Tour) BlackBerry devices)or later for BlackBerry and 2.3.5 or later for Windows Mobile devices. It is compatible with all BlackBerry smartphones running BlackBerry device software 4.2.2 or higher and all Windows Mobile devices with Windows Mobile 5 or later.
