I'm new to the forum, and don't own an iPad just yet as I have a problem I need solving before I purchase one....
I am researching giving a presentation for an installation piece. Here is my dilemma and if I could do this exactly how I want, it would be like this:
I basically need to be able to speak to one person and show them something, while an audience can view something different on the big screen, yet have the 2 linked at the same time. I have a laptop available, dvd, monitor, and considering the tablet option.
- a wall mounted monitor shows a slideshow of images/powerpoint presentation on auto and loops infinately
- an iPad or similar reflects this presentation
- the iPad could also flick through the images as a remote to the main screen
- the iPad can show different to that on screen - eg I speak to someone at the stand and show them a particular image, yet the main screen shows the whole slideshow as normal
I am a novice when it comes to this, and would really appreciate any advice on if this is possible, and the best way to go about this!
Hi Martin - welcome to the forum! :)

The iPad can 'mirror' itself w/ wireless (w/ AirPlay - Check HERE) & wired (HDMI adapter to a HDTV or monitor) options; thus, the same slideshow can be shown on the iPad and also on an external video device. Controlling the iPad presentation will again be duplicated on the main screen.
NOW, you last need may not be possible - you would likely have to use 2 iPads, but maybe others will 'chime in' w/ their suggestions. Good luck in your search for a solution!
