From TED Talks to College Lectures, the PR5-G is the Perfect Tool for Business Professionals, Public Speakers and Educators Alike

MELVILLE, N.Y., October 26, 2017 – With a host of enriched and intuitive features, Canon U.S.A., a leader in digital imaging solutions, today introduced its latest model to the Company’s presenter lineup; the PR5-G Wireless Handheld Presenter. For the first time in a Canon presenter, the new PR5-G features a green laser beam that is approximately six times brighter than a standard red laser 1, making it easy to see in large or brightly lit venues. This new green laser also provides up to 35 hours of operation of extended battery life or 400 days in standby mode, which is nine times longer than Canon’s PR10-G presenter. The PR5-G also includes a backlit LCD display, a timer and vibrating alerts to notify the speaker of the remaining time left, helping them to stay on track, while keeping their audience engaged.

“At Canon, we understand business professionals need reliable tools in every situation and we always strive to offer enhanced capabilities and additional versatility to meet the needs of our customers,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO of Canon U.S.A., Inc. “The new PR5-G is an essential tool to give speakers the confidence to present with ease and efficiency so they can focus on what really matters – their audience.”
