Main hall presentation setups...
How do you all do your presentation setups for your main assembley hall / stage area?
At the moment we have a plinth on wheels that we roll in when it's been booked, this has a monitor screwed on to the top and a half laptop (screen has been choppsed off because it died/was broken) which is then connected to the sound and VGA leads from under the stage.
Now though we've just got a Casio XJ1750 projector to replace our aging Epson and we're also looking to replace the aging laptop but we're unsure of the best device to replace it with? The idea has obviously been thrown around about changing it with an iPad or windows tablet, but there are learning curves for people who haven't used them before and a USB requirement for a presentation clicker and usb pen drives. My only current idea would be to get a tablet with windows 7 on or keep the monitor in there and use it with something like an intel NUC PC (Would have to be a bit different to the NUC though due to no standard audio output)
Any suggestions or success stories?
