Impatica Presentation Viewer
The Impatica Presentation Viewer must be installed on your BlackBerry
so that you may load, view and project presentations. The Impatica
Presentation Viewer can be installed either directly from your computer by
USB or over-the-air from the Impatica web site.
å Direct loading via USB:
The Impatica Presentation Viewer files are installed on your Windows
computer in the “Presentation Viewer” folder within the Impatica
for PowerPoint installation directory. Unless you modified the
destination installation directory during the installation process, this
folder is located at: C:\Program Files\Impatica for PowerPoint 3.5.7\
Presentation Viewer\.
To load these files directly onto your BlackBerry, connect it to your
computer by USB cable. Use the BlackBerry Desktop Manager’s
Application Loader tool to load the Impatica Presentation Viewer
by choosing the “ImpaticaViewerOnly.alx” file located in the
“Presentation Viewer” folder. For more information on how to use the
BlackBerry Desktop Manager Software, refer to its documentation.
ç Over-the-air installation:
On your BlackBerry, get the following link:
http://www.impatica.com/bb/ then follow the instructions presented.
Once the Impatica Presentation Viewer has successfully been installed
on your BlackBerry, you will be able to launch it by selecting it from
your BlackBerry Home screen, or by selecting Applications from your
BlackBerry Home screen then choosing Impatica Presentation Viewer
(the method depends upon your BlackBerry model and configuration).
LAUNCHING IMPATICA FOR POWERPOINT

Impatica for PowerPoint will appear, presenting the list of files to be
converted and tabs on which you can select conversion options.
PowerPoint files may be added to the Source PowerPoint Files list either
by using the Add… button or by dragging and dropping the files onto the
list. If Impatica for PowerPoint was launched by dropping the presentation
file to be impaticized onto the program icon (i.e., method three), the source
file name will automatically appear in the Source PowerPoint Files list.

CONVERTING YOUR POWERPOINT PRESENTATION
There are three steps to converting your presentation for playback on the
BlackBerry handheld:
å
Leave the default conversion settings, or change them according to your
preference. The following conversion settings are available:
Save Location:
• Use the save location setting to specify the location of the converted
presentation. The .cod and .alx files saved to the specified location
may be used to load your presentation via the BlackBerry Desktop
Manager, if desired.
JPEG Images:
• JPEG Quality: This setting adjusts the JPEG quality value used when
recompressing JPEG images. Increasing this value may improve
the quality of your converted presentation, but will also increase the
converted presentation file size. 70% is the recommended setting,
since it typically provides a good balance of image quality and file
size.
• Always recompress: When this setting is selected, all JPEG images
will be recompressed while impaticizing your presentation. If the
setting is not selected, JPEG images that have not been resized or
cropped in the PowerPoint presentation will not be recompressed, and
will therefore maintain their original quality.
BlackBerry and ShowMate Image Resolution:
This setting determines the image resolution used when converting
images in formats such as JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, WMF and EMF.
• Best (SVGA): outputs full resolution images for display at 800 x
600 pixels, but creates the largest output file sizes. This setting is
recommended for projecting with the ShowMate.
• Better (VGA): outputs full resolution images for display at 640 x 480
pixels. Use this setting when projecting with the ShowMate, but
available memory on the BlackBerry is low.
• Good (QVGA): outputs full resolution images for display at 320 x 240
pixels and generates the smallest output file sizes. Use this setting
when converting presentations for viewing on the BlackBerry only.
User’s Manual
Impatica ShowMate
Version 2.0

Animation Playback:
• This setting determines which version of PowerPoint to model
for animation playback. Select the version of PowerPoint that
corresponds to the version of PowerPoint used to author the
presentation.
12
Include BlackBerry Text View:
• With this option selected, an unformatted copy of the slides’ text will
be included in the converted presentation. This text may be viewed
while projecting the presentation. With this option deselected, the
converted file size is reduced because the text for the slide text view
is omitted.
Include BlackBerry Notes View:
• With this option selected, an unformatted copy of the presentation’s
notes will be included in the converted presentation. This enables
viewing of the presentation notes while projecting the presentation.
By deselecting this option, the converted file size may be reduced,
however, the notes will not be available for viewing on the
BlackBerry.
Generate BlackBerry Web Files:
• When this option is selected, a set of files (.cod, .jad and .wml)
will be generated in the specified Save Location. These files can
be uploaded to a web server for over-the-air loading of your
presentation.
At any time, you may click the Apply to All button to apply the current
settings to all of the presentations in the Source PowerPoint Files
list. Similarly, you may click the Save as Default button to make the
currently specified settings the default for all future conversions.
ç
Begin converting your presentation by clicking the Impaticize button
in the lower right-hand corner. Once the conversion is complete,
you will be presented with a list of converted files and a new set of
tabs. Look in the Converted Impatica Files list for the name of your
translated file.
é
View the converted presentation by clicking the Preview button.
LOADING YOUR PRESENTATION ONTO THE BLACKBERRY
Once your PowerPoint presentation has been converted, it is ready to be
loaded onto your handheld using one of the following methods:
Method #1: Load your presentation from the Desktop
User’s Manual
Impatica ShowMate
Version 2.0
©2006 Impatica Inc.
www.impatica.com
This method uses Impatica for PowerPoint’s built-in USB transfer
capabilities to transfer presentations to your BlackBerry. If you would
prefer to use the BlackBerry Desktop Manager Application Loader to
transfer your presentation, use the “.alx” and “.cod” files that were created
in your specified save location during conversion.
å
On the BlackBerry, launch the Impatica Presentation Viewer
application.
13
i
ç
Ensure that your BlackBerry is connected by USB then select the menu
option Wait for PC Transfer.
é
In Impatica for PowerPoint, choose the presentation that you wish to
transfer from the list of converted presentations, open the BlackBerry
Transfer tab and click Put File.
è
The transfer progress will be displayed on your computer. On your
BlackBerry, a dialog box will appear. Once the transfer is complete, this
dialog box on the BlackBerry will disappear and your presentation will
appear in the list of saved presentations.
REMINDER:
Before transferrig presentations
from Impatica for PowerPoint
BlackBerry Edition, it is
necessary to have the BlackBerry
Desktop Manager installed on
your Windows computer.
Method #2: Load your presentation over-the-air from your web
server
This method describes using Impatica for PowerPoint’s built-in FTP
capabilities to upload presentations. If you would prefer to use an alternate
means of uploading your presentation to your server, select the Generate
BlackBerry Web Files conversion setting prior to impaticizing your
presentation. This will place the all of the required web files in the save
location that you specified for your converted presentation. This set of files
can then be uploaded to your server using your preferred method.
Note: Regardless of the uploading method used, ensure that your server
administrator has configured the MIME types on the server as follows:
text/vnd.sun.j2me.app-descriptor .jad
text/vnd.wap.wml .wml
application/vnd.rim.cod .cod
å
In the Web Server Upload tab, click the Connect button to use
Impatica for PowerPoint’s built-in FTP capability. This will launch the
Connect to Server dialog box.
ç
In the Connect to Server dialog box, enter the account settings for
the server to which you will be connecting. To do so, you may first wish
to contact your webmaster to determine where on your web site your
content should be stored and to get the necessary information to make
an FTP connection to your server.
é
Once you have entered the necessary information, click the Connect
button. Impatica for PowerPoint will connect to your server.

As E-mail Attachments
SOFTWARE REQUIREMENTS
Automatic conversion and loading of PowerPoint presentations received
as e-mail attachments requires that Impatica for BlackBerry Enterprise
Server be installed on an enterprise server. This software communicates
with your organization’s BlackBerry Enterprise Server and accesses an
e-mail account created on your organization’s mail server.
It is also necessary to have a customized Impatica Presentation Viewer
installed on your BlackBerry handheld, so that the presentations may be
received, viewed and projected.
INSTALLATION
For information on how to deploy Impatica for BlackBerry Enterprise
Server, please refer to the Impatica for BlackBerry Enterprise Server
Administrator Manual.
The Impatica Presentation Viewer will need to be configured through
the Impatica for BlackBerry Enterprise Server Administration Utility prior
to installation on your BlackBerry handheld. For information on how to
configure and subsequently install the Impatica Presentation Viewer, refer
to the Impatica for BlackBerry Enterprise Server Administrator Manual.

BlackBerry as it would have in
PowerPoint, complete with formatted
text, graphics, charts, animations,
slide transitions and hyperlinks.
Sounds in the PowerPoint file will be
ignored, as they are currently
unsupported on the BlackBerry.
The Impatica Presentation Viewer will automatically temporarily store
recently received presentations, to a maximum of three presentations or
the allowed storage size. This enables quick subsequent viewing of these
presentations. Additionally, these presentations will be accessible even
when outside of wireless coverage. Temporarily stored presentations will
be replaced as necessary to provide storage space for newly received
User’s Manual presentations. In order to protect presentations from being removed from the
Impatica ShowMate handheld, presentations may be saved during viewing by choosing the Save

With your PowerPoint presentation impaticized and loaded onto your
BlackBerry, the next step is to set up your ShowMate by making the
necessary connections.
The process of connecting your ShowMate to the power charger, BlackBerry
and projector is simple and fast. The following steps will show you how.
BlackBerry Password Configuration
Note: Password configuration is required only when making a wired
USB connection between the ShowMate and a password-protected

provided with your ShowMate into the BlackBerry input port on the
ShowMate. This step may be performed either before or after powering the
ShowMate.
BLUETOOTH PAIRING
To complete creating a wireless Bluetooth connection, it is necessary to
perform a Bluetooth pairing on the BlackBerry, as you would with any other
Bluetooth device.

TO PRESENT:
1. On the BlackBerry, launch
Impatica Presentation Viewer,
scroll to the presentation and
choose “Project Presentation”
from the menu and select
the ShowMate with which
you want to project.
2. Navigate the presentation
using the presentation menu
or shortcut keys on the
BlackBerry.
3. View the presentation slide
list, slide text or notes on the
BlackBerry while projecting.
4. Link views to view the same
slide on the BlackBerry and
Showmate or unlink views
to see different slides.
This section will explain these
steps.
SECTION 4: PRESENTING WITH
SHOWMATE
Giving presentations with BlackBerry and ShowMate is as easy and
compelling as presenting from a computer. In fact, with easy access to slide
text, notes and navigation tools on the BlackBerry, you have a combination
of cue cards and a remote control right in your hand. This makes presenting
easier than it ever was with a computer.
Once you have successfully loaded your presentation onto your BlackBerry
and set up your ShowMate, you are ready to begin projecting your
presentation.
Projecting a Presentation
Follow these simple steps to begin projecting any presentation that has been
loaded onto your BlackBerry:
å
Ensure that your ShowMate is connected to the power charger,
BlackBerry and display, as described in Section 3.
ç
On your BlackBerry handheld, launch the Impatica Presentation
Viewer application. Do so by selecting it either from your BlackBerry
Home Screen or from your BlackBerry Applications, depending upon the
model and configuration of your handheld.
é
From the list of saved and temporary presentations, scroll to the
presentation that you wish to project.

23
è
Click the trackwheel to access the Impatica Presentation Viewer menu
and select Project Presentation.
ê
From the list that appears, choose your ShowMate. If you are
connecting wirelessly via Bluetooth, your ShowMate’s name will be the
same name used in the Bluetooth pairing process. That is, “ShowMate
NNNNNN” where NNNNNN are the last six numbers in your ShowMate’s
serial number (e.g., “ShowMate 935556” with serial number “01-AB2255935556”). If you are using a ShowMate that is connected to the
BlackBerry by a USB cable, choose USB Connected.
Your presentation will be transferred to the ShowMate. A progress bar will be
displayed on the BlackBerry until this process is complete.
Once the entire presentation has been transferred, the first slide of your
presentation will appear on your display or projector and you will be
presented with the BlackBerry view of your presentation.
BlackBerry Views
While projecting, the presentation view on the BlackBerry is divided into two
principle areas:
• The ShowMate status area: In this portion of your BlackBerry screen,
you will see a progress bar and a progress wheel that will provide
live updates of the status of the presentation as it is being displayed
through ShowMate. The rectangular progress bar shows ShowMate’s
current slide, while the wheel shows the progress through that slide.
• Slide View area: This area of your BlackBerry screen provides either
a slide list view, text view or notes view of your presentation.
At any time, you can access the Presentation Menu by clicking the
trackwheel. This menu provides several controls for navigating and viewing
your presentation.
SLIDE LIST VIEW
User’s Manual
In slide list view, the number and title of each slide in your presentation are
listed. From this list, you may choose to switch to the slide text or notes
view for any slide. Simply scroll to the slide of interest, click the trackwheel
to access the presentation menu and select View Text or View Notes.
Impatica ShowMate
Version 2.0
©2006 Impatica Inc.
www.impatica.com
Note: When operating in linked mode, switching to the slide text or notes
view for a particular slide will cause the same slide to be displayed on the
ShowMate. In unlinked mode, the projected slide will be unaffected. More
details on linked and unlinked modes are provided later in this section.
24
To return to the slide list view from slide text or slide notes view, choose
View Slide List from the presentation menu.
SLIDE TEXT VIEW
In slide text view, all of a particular slide’s text will be displayed. To access
the slide text view from the slide list view, scroll to the desired slide
and choose View Text from the presentation menu. To view the text for
the slide currently displayed in notes view, choose View Text from the
presentation menu.
To view the text for the previous or next slide, select Previous Text or Next
Text from the presentation menu.
SLIDE NOTES VIEW
The notes view displays the text stored in the notes area of a slide. To
access the slide notes view from the slide list view, scroll to the desired
slide and choose View Notes from the presentation menu. To view the
notes for the slide currently displayed in text view, select View Notes from
the presentation menu.
To view the notes for the previous or next slide, select Previous Notes or
Next Notes from the presentation menu.
LINKED/UNLINKED VIEW MODES
The BlackBerry view areas can operate in either linked or unlinked modes.
•
Linked View Mode
While in linked view, the contents of the slide view area (i.e., the slide
list, slide text or notes text) will correspond to the slide currently
displayed on the ShowMate. In slide list view, the currently projected
slide will be highlighted. For slide text and notes views, the slide being
viewed on the BlackBerry will be the slide currently projected.
The linked view is visually indicated by a common background color
for the ShowMate status and slide view areas. In addition, a small
closed link icon will be displayed at the border of the two areas.
User’s Manual
Impatica ShowMate
Version 2.0
©2006 Impatica Inc.
Because the linked view keeps the BlackBerry slide view and projected
slide in synch, you may choose to use the slide list to navigate your
ShowMate presentation while in this mode. Scroll to the slide that
you would like to project, click the trackwheel and choose Project
Slide. The selected slide will be displayed through ShowMate and the
BlackBerry and ShowMate will remain synchronized.
www.impatica.com
25
•
Unlinked View Mode
Unlinked view mode enables you to view slide text or notes for a slide
different than the currently projected slide. In this mode, the slide view
area is independent of the ShowMate status. This mode is indicated by
different background colors in the ShowMate status and slide view areas
and a small broken link icon at the border of the two areas.
Since the BlackBerry slide view and projected slides are strictly
independent, you may freely navigate your presentation on the
BlackBerry without changing the currently projected slide. To project the
slide that is currently displayed on the BlackBerry, click the trackwheel
to access the presentation menu then choose Project Slide. While in
slide text or notes text view, should you wish to see the slide that is
currently projected, choose Show Projected Slide from the presentation
menu.
CHANGING MODES
Change between the linked and unlinked view modes on your BlackBerry by
selecting Link Views or Unlink Views from the presentation menu.
Navigation Controls
The presentation projected through ShowMate can be navigated in a variety
of ways. Simple to use, basic controls allow you to easily navigate forward
and backward through a presentation.
In addition, various controls available when operating in linked and unlinked
modes offer options to freely navigate the presentation.
BASIC CONTROLS
The following basic controls are available on the BlackBerry to navigate the
projected presentation forward and backward:

LINKED MODE NAVIGATION
The linked mode on the BlackBerry keeps the BlackBerry view synchronized
with the projected slide. Therefore, any navigation through the BlackBerry
26
slide view will be reflected in the projected presentation. To change
into linked mode from unlinked mode, choose Link Views from the
presentation menu.
The slide list can be used in linked mode to jump to any slide in the
presentation. To do so, scroll to the desired slide and choose Project Slide
from the presentation menu.
In slide text view, using the Previous Text and Next Text commands in
the presentation will cause the text for the previous or next slide to be
displayed on the BlackBerry. When operating in linked mode, the projected
presentation will also switch to the previous or next slide.
The Previous Notes and Next Notes commands available while in notes
view will display the notes for the previous or next slide on the BlackBerry.
In linked mode, the projected presentation will also change to the previous
or next slide.
UNLINKED MODE NAVIGATION
When operating in unlinked mode, the current slide on the BlackBerry can
be different from the current slide projected. At any time in unlinked mode,
the slide currently viewed on the BlackBerry can be projected through the
ShowMate by selecting Project Slide from the presentation menu.

Troubleshooting
QUESTION:
When I try to project, or while projecting I receive the message “No
ShowMate found. Please check your connection.” on the BlackBerry.
å Verify that the ShowMate is connected to the BlackBerry handheld.
User’s Manual

Ensure that the ShowMate is powered by verifying that its yellow light is
illuminated.
ç Unplug the ShowMate power input then reconnect it. Wait until the
ShowMate light has flashed three times and the Impatica ShowMate
screen is displayed on the projector or monitor. Then, choose retry on
the BlackBerry.
28
é Try using another USB cable. The one in use may be damaged.
QUESTION:
When I try to project, the following screen is displayed by the
ShowMate:
This screen indicates that the ShowMate cannot establish a connection
with the BlackBerry because the BlackBerry handheld is passwordprotected. Either the ShowMate has not been configured with a password
for this BlackBerry, or it has been configured with an incorrect password.
Use the ShowMate Updater software to add the BlackBerry password to
the ShowMate. See Section 3 for further details.
The number presented next to the lock on this slide indicates the remaining
number of connection attempts permissable by the BlackBerry handheld.
As a protection mechanism, the BlackBerry handheld allows a maximum
of ten incorrect connection attempts when it is password protected. Each
time the ShowMate is powered and connected to the BlackBerry without
accurate password settings, it will consume one of the remaining attempts.
As a precaution, however, the ShowMate will never try to connect when
only one attempt remains.
