    Hi I have used an ipad 2 for almost three years and now got a mac pro recently. Gave my ipad to my mother. Now IM considering a new ipad air 2. One thing I want to know is, its there any way to connect it to hdmi cable and project the screen.i have to make many presentations and now with touch optimized office it will be a productivity beast. But I want to know if I will be able to use a hdmi cable with some adapter accessory.i know a vga projector cable is available... But its hdmi connection possible to make a presentation...

    Apple sells a Lightning to HDMI connector, which also has a lightning connector so you can keep your iPad charged while the HDMI cable is plugged in. This adaptor isn't cheap, it costs $55.00, more than half the cost of an Apple TV, which would let you wirelessly stream content from your iPad to the video projector. The Apple TV costs $99.00.

    I use this set up routinely in my iPad classes. Works fine.. FYI the Apple TV won't work for me because the wifi is a "captive network" and the Apple TV has no browser to allow you to sign in.

    The newest updates to iOS and AppleTV are supposed to allow a peer-to-peer connection, one that does not require that both devices be on the same wi-fi network. But you probably need one of the newer iPads to take advantage of that: iPad Air or newer.

    Interesting, I have an Air 2 so might work. Should check it out.

    Googling indicates still need both items on same network.

    Buy a airport xpress works fine for mobile presentations. It creates its own personal wifi network Far far better than direct HDMI connection. This is assuming you do not need to access the Internet during a presentation
