Video: Using remote controls

You can gain full remote control of your presentation over Wi-Fi using your iPhone or iPod touch and the new Keynote Remote application. To setup your iPhone remote, we need to first establish a Wi-Fi link with your Keynote application and your iPhone. To do this, go to the Keynote menu, pull-down the Preferences, and then click on the Remote button. We will click the Enable box here and in the background, Keynote is pulling the Wi-Fi network for iPhones with the Keynote Remote application.

Using remote controls

You can gain full remote control of your presentation over Wi-Fi using your iPhone or iPod touch and the new Keynote Remote application. To setup your iPhone remote, we need to first establish a Wi-Fi link with your Keynote application and your iPhone. To do this, go to the Keynote menu, pull-down the Preferences, and then click on the Remote button. We will click the Enable box here and in the background, Keynote is pulling the Wi-Fi network for iPhones with the Keynote Remote application.

Next, we'll need to set our iPhone to be on the same Wi-Fi network as your computer running Keynote. All this works in many situations without a problem. There are times when you want to give a presentation and you don't have access to the Wi-Fi network where you are presenting, like a conference hall for instance, or another common occurrence that folks have been having is that their computer and their phone may be on the same Wi-Fi network, but the network has restrictions that don't allow communication between them. In light of this, I would like to show you how to setup an ad-hoc network connection between your computer and your iPhone. What this means is that we'll have your computer send out its own Wi- Fi signal that your phone can connect to and you won't have to worry about connecting up to the external Wi-Fi network.

This will mean that you will not have a Wi-Fi connection to the Internet while you have the system activated, but it will virtually guarantee that your connection with your phone will work. On your computer running Keynote, go up to the menu bar, click on your AirPort icon, and we'll select Create Network, and this dialog box appears. We'll give our ad-hoc network a name, say, KeyRemote and we'll keep the Channel on the Automatic, that's fine, and add a password if we want. We won't this time. Next, connect your iPhone to the ad-hoc network, which is exactly the same way you connect to any Wi-Fi network on the phone. Then launch your remote application on your iPhone, and click on the Link to Keynote button. On the Setting Screen, click New Keynote Link, and then make note of a Pass Code that now appears.

Now, back to the Remote Preferences in Keynote. We see the phone appear with a Link button next to it. So we'll click that and then when this dialog comes up, we'll enter the pass code that came from the phone. So we are now linked. Then we'll just close up the Preferences window here and go back to our phone. Now, here from the Settings window, let's click Done. That will take us back to the Main Keynote Remote screen. Then down below, when we want to start a slide show, we just click Play Slide Show. So now on the phone, with start of the presentation, we see on the left a thumbnail of the current presentation screen. On the right, a thumbnail of the next build or transition that's going to happen. To advance the presentation, just swipe to the left.

Now, notice this is just like the images we see in Presenter View. The image on the right will show the changes that will happen after you swipe, and instead of the red progress bar at the top of the screen like we have in Presenter View, on the iPhone, we have in the upper right, the Spinning Progress Indicator that lets us know that a build or transition is in progress. So once the Progress Indicator stop spinning, it means that you can now safely advance when you are ready. We'll flip through a few more here.

This is the Landscape Mode in Keynote Remote but it also has a Portrait Mode as well. Now, to change the Portrait Mode, it is not the same as tilting the phone, because think about it, you don't want to be keeping track of how your phone is oriented when you are up on stage, and trying to give a presentation. So to change to Portrait Mode, you click on the Options button and then click the Settings button, and then in the Settings Screen, we'll go down to Orientation, and click on the Portrait Mode, and then click Done. Now, you see your current screen at the top, and the current Presenter Notes in yellow below that. So you should use this mode of course when you want to have access to your Presenter Notes.

Now, one thing you can do is you can grab and hold that top image and take a sneak peak at the next stage of the presentation by pulling the current image over and as long as you don't let go, when you return the current slide to the middle, it won't advance. Keynote Remote enables you to concentrate your energy then on giving a great presentation while giving you wireless freedom and control.
