This is a specialized PDF Viewing application custom-made for the LaTeX class beamer, specifically the "show notes on second screen=right" option.

To make use of this program, you will need a document created by latex-beamer, and you will need two monitors connected to your computer. They do not need to have the same resolution, not even the same aspect ratio.

This program will split your PDF page in half, and display the left half (intended for the audience) on one monitor (think: a notebook's VGA output connected to your university's projector) and it will display the right half (intended for you) on the second screen. Also, on the second screen, you get page thumbnails and status information, like the time since you started the presentation and a "wall clock".

PPC is a viewer for PDF which uses Keynote-like multi-monitor output to provide meta information to the speaker. It can show a normal presentation window on one screen and a more sophisticated overview on the other, with information like a picture of the next slide and a clock with the time remaining.

zathura is a document viewer for PDF and other formats with a minimalistic and space saving interface. It offers a vim-like experience and has a focus on keyboard interaction. The key bindings, commands and most other settings can be customized.

Some of the features are:

  • bookmarking pages
  • printing the whole document or specific pages
  • following links
  • searching in the document
  • browsing the document index
  • SyncTex forward and backward synchronization

zathura can be extended to support other file formats via a plugin system.

The package is enhanced by the following packages: zathura-cb zathura-djvu zathura-pdf-poppler zathura-ps
