Hudl gives you the option to wirelessly control your video playback. This can be used online with Hudl Presentations and video playback from your video library, and offline with Hudl Presenter or the Hudl Video Editor. Using a Smart Pointer makes it easy to transition your video without having to be next to your computer or use a mouse. Connecting the Smart Pointer is quick and easy.

Smart Pointers are inexpensive, and can be purchased on Amazon.com, click on the link below for additional information on purchasing your own Smart Pointer to use with Hudl.
