Introduction – Gigabyte Aivia Neon 1200Dpi Presenter Mouse
Gigabyte has been best known for their motherboard solutions at varying levels. Here today we have one of their devices from their growing and maturing peripheral line which is a presentation mouse named the Aivia Neon. This mouse is not just a mouse but many presentation tools in one. Gigabyte has started to make its own name in the gaming mouse market but this is no gaming mouse it is actually very strongly pointed in a singular usage application. This application is so widely used to me it is fairly surprising I have not come into contact with more models like this before. Not to mention the feature set is very interesting as it offers some very interesting productivity or value added features which can really make professional business meetings more productive or even easier to navigate.
The Gigabyte Aivia Neon comes to market with a street price of $74.99 directly from Newegg at the time of writing. There really is no standard for comparison in this level as the target for the mouse is in such a niche product as normally when a company is setting up a conference or meeting room they use standard desktop wired or wireless parts for their presentation systems. Im sure others exist but this is the first unit i have laid hands on which is specifically made for this usage.
Dynamic Wireless Presenter Mouse
Lifting the Aivia Neon off any surface will automatically activate air-mouse mode. While in air-mouse mode pressing the air-mouse key will allow you to move the mouse cursor intuitively. Alternatively, double click the air-mouse key to keep the cursor active. Placing the mouse back on a surface will de-activate air-mouse mode.
We understand how useful laser pointer is when you are in a meeting. It helps you to effortlessly point out a specific item on a big screen. The function is able to use even when you turn on the mouse. You don’t even have to plug in dongle at all!
*Never intentionally direct a laser beam towards your eyes or the eyes of others.
Pressing the Aivia painter key while in air-mouse mode will activate painter mode, holding the left key will allow you to scribble onto any document or webpages.
