MaxiVista Version 3

Here is another one of my “use it every day” applications. Maxivista. If you have read any of my postings related to productivity enhancing tools you know that I use MaxiVista for remote mirroring when lecturing with my Tablet PCs. I am very excited about the new version. Gunnar Bartels must have been reading my mind when he added these new features and improvements.


Version 3 now supports Vista!


  • Enhanced clipboard synchronization
    MaxiVista now also synchronizes formatted text, bitmaps and files (Windows XP/Vista only) between the computer’s clipboards:
  • Improved Remote Control
    The Viewer program can now operate as a Windows service which allows you to log onto a locked secondary PC:
  • New displaying options
    MaxiVista supports latest widescreen resolutions and ultra high virtual resolutions (up to 4,800×2,400 pixels) with new zoom/shrink-to-fit auto-panning modes and a freely resizable viewer program in window mode:
  • More 
    • Up to 50% performance boost
      New Intel-optimized compression algorithms and the network parameter optimizer increase the performance of the extended screen playback up to 50%
    • MaxiVista now remembers the last used mode (extended screen vs. remote control vs. mirroring)
    • Deactivation of extended screen can now be configured when secondary PC is being locked
    • Screensaver synchronization between the computers
    • Detailed network parameters settings to tweak performance
    • Customizable hotkeys for all major options

ActiveWords SE free offer to College & University Students

 I am a great fan of ActiveWords and use it daily. Today I saw this on the ActiveWords website.


ActiveWord Systems offers a free four year ActiveWords SE* license to all college and university students in the United States.


ActiveWords SE is exactly the same as the commercial product ActiveWords PLUS, with these exceptions; (1) ActiveWords SE does not include scripting, (2) ActiveWords SE includes access to a more limited set of free add-in applications.
