    Hello Loungers

    What kind of hardware do I need to have a PowerPoint presentation displayed on multiple computer monitors simultaneously?

    Think about it as a classroom presentation controlled from a single PC. Or like having multiple computer monitors plunged into the same video card receiving the same signal.

    Are there any switch boxes that I can connect multiple computer monitors to and then when needed flip a switch and have all monitors go back to being connected to their respective computers?

    Thanks for any help.

    Your best bet is probably to go to a AV (that's Audio-Visual!) firm who specialise in this sort of thing. It will probably cost £lots, or, to you, $not-quite-so-lots.

    I could give you several UK firms for this, but probably not of much help to you...

    Doing this with hardware can be messy, I would suggest checking out a software package called SynchronEyes it uses your network to do just this kind of thing.
