"PPC Tablet Remote Control Suite 2.0" software uses a Pocket PC screen
to emulate one or more "virtual" input devices, such as keyboard,
keypad, macro keys, touchpad and tablet, in order to remotely control a
desktop or laptop PC, or to complement the PC's existing input
hardware. Download the free trial from Handango or PocketGear:
The Client, deployed on the Pocket PC device, sends pre-defined input
signals to the Server on a host PC through an ActiveSync connection or
any TCP/IP network, wired or wireless. Saved in special layout
profiles, the input signals can include key strokes, key combinations,
key sequences, and mouse behaviors. The Designer can be used to create
a new layout profile, or modify or delete existing profiles. PPC Tablet
is designed with the following user needs in mind:
* Remotely controlling media playback on a PC.
* Remotely controlling a slideshow in a presentation room.
* Using the Pocket PC screen to create and send handwritten signatures
or annotations to a PC application.
* Speeding up repetitive data entry with special user-defined macro
* Speeding up computer operation with customizable application-specific
macro keys or shortcut keys.
* Using a Pocket PC to complement existing input hardware with virtual
input devices, such as a virtual numeric keypad.
PPC Tablet 2.0 is also designed with network security in mind. Upon
initial connection from a Pocket PC device, the Server will prompt the
PC user to accept or reject the connection. Optionally, the Server can
authenticate the Windows user name and password supplied by the Client.
If the authentication is successful, the Server will accept the
connection silently. To further enhance security over TCP/IP networks,
all communication between the Server and Client is encrypted with
512-bit RSA cryptography after a connection is established. This
provides reasonable protection strength for the communication, while
maintaining good application performance.
The software comes with five pre-defined profiles: Default Devices,
Tablet Only, Personal Data, PowerPoint Presentation and Windows Media
Player. The Default Devices profile includes a touchpad, a tablet and a
numeric keypad. The Tablet Only profile includes a single tablet. The
Personal Data provides a set of buttons which users can customize with
their own personal information to speed up repetitive data entry in
electronic forms. The PowerPoint Presentation profile includes a set of
pre-defined buttons to start, stop and navigate through a slide show,
as well as a touchpad that can navigate the pointer or draw on a
PowerPoint presentation. The Windows Media Player profile provides a
set of buttons to control media playback and sound volume in Windows
Media Player. All these profiles can be further extended by the users
based on their individual needs.
In addition to using pre-defined profiles, users can create their own
profiles with the Designer. The Designer supports the creation,
modification and deletion of software-emulated input components, such
as key buttons, mouse buttons, and navigation areas that can emulate a
touchpad or tablet. The size, location, label and corresponding action
of each input component are all customizable and saved into a specified
PPC Tablet is compatible with all Pocket PC 2003 and Pocket PC 2003 SE
devices (including VGA-capable units), as well as Pocket PC 2002
devices with .NET Compact Framework installed. For more information on
