    I am new to the forum and appreciate any feedback on this issue you might give.

    I am a professional trainer now using MACBOOK PRO, IPAD and IPHONE.
    Lots of research but looking for a simple solution to presenting wirelessly from IPAD to projector. Don't want to rely on Wi Fi solutions as often times where I am making presentations don't have access to WIFI. Looking for something more along the lines of blue tooth connectivity where I can present PDF's and Keynote and if I land in heaven, this would include power point. Right now I convert my Power Points to PDF's which allows me to store in IBooks.

    I am willing to buy a new projector if one is suggested to provide a solution. So far have experimented with using IPAD to control projector, connected to MACBOOK and worked somewhat well but needed WiFi to connect.

    I am hoping to find a solution in a perfect world where IPAD is connected to projector through Blue Tooth and no laptop needed, and no wires, allowing me to move about with presentation up to a couple hundred feet.

    Ideas?

    Thanks again for your help and feedback

    Other than Jailbreaking the iPad, there isnt really anything offhand I can think of. If a Projector had a Bluetooth connection, you could do that, but still, the iPad would have to be JB.

    The only solution I can think of is to jailbreak then use veency to set up a VNC server on your iPad then log in to it from a desktop plugged into a projector, you can control it from the iPad and show it with the projector....bluetooth solution tho....not that I've seen or heard of....on either end. None for the iPad, nor is there anyway to access an iPad screen (or a laptop or PC for that matter) over BT.

    Just a crazy suggestion here....
    Get an Apple TV and a small portable WiFi router.
    Connect Apple TV to the projector (you might need an HDMI to VGA adapter)
    Get a small, portable WiFi Router
    Download the Remote App for your iPad and stream wireless from the iPad to the Apple TV.

    This is basically the set-up I am running in my house - No wires except between the Apple TV and the projector (or in my case my Plasma TV). This works flawlessly....as a bonus you can connect the Apple TV to the iTunes library on your MacBook (if you happen to have it along) and stream just about anything to the Apple TV.

    You could buy just about ANY wireless N router...so between the Apple TV, router and an HDMI adapter you would have less than $200 invested.

    If you get a new projector it probably has HDMI inputs.

    Thanks people for your input. Think I understand the Apple TV approach but I don't always have WIFI where I do presentations so that one is not viable for me. Don't understand what Jail Break means so I will google and learn. Thanks for your help and will leave post in case someone comes across with other ideas.

    I was hoping for an app or device that would allow the Ipad to connect wirelessly directly to the projector unit. Have seen wireless projectors for couple thousand dollars and one adapter that could be connected but don't think Ipad is able to connect. Might be my lack of understanding the technology.

    I assume that Macs can set up an Ad Hoc network, as PCs can. If that's true you should be able to connect the MacBook to the projector and use the iPad and a remote desktop application like Jump Desktop, via the ad hoc wireless network, to control the MacBook (and thereby) the presentation.

    On site prep would be connecting to the projector and switching the network settings on the iPad and MacBook.

    This is an old question but here is my approach. I do technical presentations on the road. Carrying projectors and laptop and wireless presenter is not always an option. I use an App called Two Screens on my iPad. I can load PDF presentations into it, Powerpoints, Pages, Keynote, etc. into the app. Hook up the iPad with the VGA adapter to a projector, computer monitor or big presentation screen with VGA inputs. the Two Screens app has a sister app for the iPhone 4 which acts as the remote to control the iPad. you can advance slides, even has a large arrow you can manipulate on the phone which appears on screen. I use a lot of wiring diagrams and logic schematics which can be traced out with an arrow on screen, all manipulated from your phone. Whatever you have on the big screen, you can see the same on your phone. Very cool app. Both will run you about ten dollars. Well worth it.

    Yeah, I don't think that's going to work. Lots of outfits have tried wireless PC to TV solutions and they don't have much range and require a ton of software to run. In the end you get choppy so-so video and audio. Intel now has WiDi built into their new i series chips and all you need is a receiver at your TV. Your best bet is a cable solution.

    If You have an iPhone . Use the hotspot function creating portable wifi. Then you can plug the iPad into the projector and control it with keynote presenter I do this all the time for presentations.

    I use an app called Conference Pad. Run a copy on the phone and the iPad. It works over either wifi or bluetooth. Much faster over wifi, but in a complicated wifi environment it might not work, so you can then use bluetooth. Works fine but I think the iPhone screen is too small for controlling a presentation properly. I think it worlds better to have two iPads and use a Grabbit Case from New Trent. It has a leather strap on the back so you can more easily hold your iPad. Now you have a REAL system for presentation. You can walk around the room...there is a laser pointer function that let's you highlight different areas on the screen when doing the presentation.

    Challenge to your statement

    I use the iPad/apple tv. Solution all the time to stream presentations. The writer is suggesting that a router you provide will allow the network required to do this. Yes, he would not have full use of the Apple TV (services), but that is not what he is attempting.

    This, BTW, is the setup I am assembling, using a super portable router built into a wall wort.
