    I'm getiing an Infocus IN3916 projector and an iPad 2 for my classroom. I know I can use my laptop, but would the iPad have the capability to connect wirelessly to the projector? I could then walk anywhere in the room and have everything I'm doing on the iPad show up on the board (screen) in front of the class. Any ideas, experience or tech support is appreciated. Thanks.

    I'm afraid that this is simply not possible. You can connect via a cable to the projector, but WiFi connection from the iPad is not supported.

    I think for you to use your iPad on a projector wirelessly, you would have to hook up a laptop to the projector, download an app that will allow you to send data from your iPad to your laptop and still then you might even have to jailbreak it.

    Thing is, it can probably be done, but I just haven't seen this happen yet.

    The projector probably doesn't have any wireless inputs, which means that some other device needs to connect to the projector, which picks up the iPad signal and passes it on to the projector. A second iPad/iPod/iPhone would work, or even a laptop.

    Replica Pro does replicate the iPad screen onto a laptop, or other iOS devices also running replica pro, so it may just be what you are looking for.

    My son is a teacher and is using http://webpad.hk/ to whiteboard on. The projector is hooked to his laptop and the website image is projected but he can then move around the room and whiteboard without being physically connected.

    Another option that would work is Apple TV....and it's only $99.

    With AirPlay, you cannot stream the iPad screen to an Apple TV. Now, if you wanted to stream movies from iPad to ATV, then it might be a solution, but for doing anything else, it won't work, as AirPlay only streams videos.

    If there would be an app like Replica Pro available for the ATV, it could work, however, this doesn't seem to be the case. But my own knowledge is limited, so perhaps someone else knows how one can stream an exact copy of the iPad screen to the ATV.

    Your simplest option right now without extreme amounts of extra hardware...

    ...or a jailbreak would be to use your Laptop the presentation center and use a VNC App to remotely control it. I have been using my iPod Touch as remote admin tool in my work as school tech support... waiting for my iPad... and it is a satisfactory solution.

    VNC/RDP allows you to both see the screen of material and continue to face the kids or wander the room. In borrowing a colleagues iPad I was able to do this kind of remote viewing for basically the whole day with only incidental charging.

    What laptop is it? PC or Mac? Do you have rights to install software?

    In my collection of remote apps I have: iTeleport (very nice, worth the price IMHO), RemoteTap(defunct), SplashTop(good for streaming to your iPad, not as good control), and everyAir (early stages, targeted at streaming games from PC to iPad)
