    Hi Guys,

    New to the forum and looking for some information.
    Here what I am looking to do.

    I have a projector connected to a laptop running powerpoint.
    This is projecting to the front of the room onto a white screen.
    I am going be presenting on the stage and want to be able to use the ipad to draw on the presentation that is being displayed.
    I also want to be able to see the presentation on the ipad to mark it accurately.

    Can anyone tell me if this is possible and what adapters and the configuration looks like ?

    One of our members carried out a survey of Office apps for his company; you can see his conclusions in this thread...

    Look into Splashtop. Allows you to mirror your laptop onto your iPad and annotate it from there.
