    iPad2 owner since 2 weeks, I am in charge of finding out how to use iPad2 in professional prestentation context.

    We are actually working with a stock of appr. 200 interactive, multilingual .ppt-presentations totalizing appr. 5 GB. As far as I know, there is no easy way to convert .ppt-presentations including ...
    - .ppt-navigation area
    - complex .ppt- as well as .swf animations
    - video files in different (data)formats

    Switching to keynote or another editor is excluded as well as converting entire presetations to video ...

    Anybody in charge of a similar project and willing to share information?

    So far there is no perfect solution. Microsoft is going to release office for iPad ( Microsoft Office for iPad: Separating fact from fiction | ZDNet ), hopefully it will be the answer.

    For videos, you may convert them into mp4 or m4v by using ffmpeg or any GUI utility by batch. For animations, SlideRocket implements HTML5 based presentation with animation and support import PPT, but I haven't test how good it goes yet.

    PS, we have an app named AirSlides for wireless PDF presentation, it is good for those don't care content animation.

    What are you actually trying to do? Do you want to use the iPad to deliver ppt presentation on a overhead projector? Or do you want to give the ppt presentation on the iPads screen? Or, by using apple tv you can play the presentation on your iPad have have it show up on a large screen tv.

    You might want to checkout Onlive Deskop as it will let you use real ppt files on your iPad without any conversion because it streams a windows desktop to the iPad and thus runs PowerPoint itself. You need a solid wireless connection for it to work. You'd have to test it to see how it works with external file formats, but for stock powerpoint it works well.
