Swipe command?

Postby frozenwaffles » Mon May 12, 2014 1:01 am

Hi, so using airscan I would like a presenter to be able to 'swipe' on the screen to the right for slide advance and swipe to the left to go back in a slide deck...
now I would like widget designer to send a command to PowerPoint or Keynote...is this possible?
the presentation would be shown through the DVI input card on my Server LT.

Hi Jeremy,

Have a look at PB Spark (download available under system tools),
It allows you to send keystroke commands to a computer via manager, check out the help file.
I generally create dedicated sequence in manager with commands (with cue points) then a button in widget with SeqGotoCue,SeqID,CueID script & push the command that way, it's pretty solid.
Powerpoint/Keynote machine has to be on network & running PB spark.

How to translate the airscan data to trigger the keystrokes (or cues) will be the challenge.

Hope that helps

Cheers

Aaron

Hi,

to make spark working on a mac is on the list for a long time already, but unfortunately it brings up a lot of issue and we could not solve those until today.

Regarding to this article http://www.theguardian.com/technology/b ... skeynoteon there is web based keynote clone which should run on Windows.

The other idea, not very nice, but working: setup a Windows computer with spark and vnc which is connected to a Mac running Keynote. You basically only need to force a mouse click on the VNC to go to the next slide.

Hope that helps

Patrick
