In 1999 the Chairman's Indicator was released with its partner the Mighty Mouse. This was the first remote presentation device
available in Australia, and it changed the way large meetings and conferences were organised and conducted at the technical level.
In 2002 the Cue King was born, along with the TX1 radio frequency slide cue set. Now, for the very first time, Australian
presenters could advance their slides via a radio button (instead of a cabled button) and technicians could now route these slide
cues to multiple show computers via the Cue King.
In 2004 the Cue King Rev1 incorporated a reverse button and, together with the new RevRadio, became the world's first remote
presentation system to include both forward and reverse wireless slide cues. The Cue King Rev1 system quickly set the benchmark
for remote slide advancement, and for over a decade remained standard kit in all of the major convention centres
in Australia. In the Meetings & Events sector today, Szikla Technical has earned a reputation as one of the best known and most
highly trusted technical brands.
2004 also saw the release of another flagship product, the Minute Man 99 Conference Timer. Designed to indicate to a presenter
how much allocated time they have remaining, it was the first (and for some time the only) count-down timer available with a digital
display. It was also unique as a time-piece in that several remote displays could be plugged in to allow monitoring in multiple
locations by multiple persons. Its flexibility, reliability and ease of use have helped it to remain one of our most popular lines.
In 2015 the Prodigal Dual Channel Strip & Monitor Station was
released into the Professional Audio Recording market, after
being developed and trialled on recordings by some of
Australia's biggest names. The Prodigal is the first elite audio
device anywhere in the world designed specifically to produce
premium studio quality results whilst acting as the central hub
of a home recording setup. In addition, the superb quality of
the unit makes it just as useful in a professional studio, as an
In 2017 we released the Cue King 2 Remote Presentation System,
incorporating many innovations including the "Lectenna" remote
antenna and USB output, which is set to be yet another
game-changer in the world of professional AV slide advancement.

two year warranty, and sell to the world.
