Question about Dell 3200MP Multimedia Projector

Switching to one program to another while on lcd projector

I am going to be doing a slideshow for my wedding using both powerpoint and moviemaker. I need to know how to switch back and forth from one program to another with the switches being seen only on the laptop and not on the screen for the guests to see. I have heard that there is a way to do this using powerpoint, but need to know how to switch from one program to another. Are there certain keys I use, or will this not work at all? Thanks for any help.

Alt-tab is the keyboard shortcut for switching between programs in windows.That will still show up on either display, though. There is a way, when two displays are hooked up, to display a power point presentation on one display and use the other for configuration. The only problem is that you'll still have to switch to movie maker, which may or may not support this feature (i'd imagine not).

Your best bet may be to actually export your movie maker video to a file then insert it into your power point:

HD Video to PowerPoint-AVCHD MTS to Microsoft PowerPoint Format on Windows 7


Aunsoft PowerPoint Video Converter-HD Video Recordings to Powerpoint on Windows 7 <br />Best HD Video to PowerPoint Converter-Deinterlace AVCHD for PowerPoint <br /><br />Microsoft PowerPoint is the most commonly used program for creating slideshows on Windows. There are many formats listed as supported to be inserted to PowerPoint, e.g. WMV, ASF, DVR-MS, MPG, AVI, MP4, MOV. However, you need to install related codec or QuickTime to play MP4/MOV files or AVI movies. <br /><br />If you would like to <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate/">Present HD videos on PPT</a></b>, such as the AVCHD recordings from your camcorders, you need to convert them to MS PowerPoint supported formats. Aunsoft Final Mate is the recommended <b>PowerPoint video converter</b> for you, as it does not transcode AVCHD MTS/M2TS clips on Windows 7, but also join and cut recordings into a single file. <br /><br />Follow the simple guide for you to get your <b>HD Video Recordings to Powerpoint</b>, and present your PPT with flexible activities. <br /><br />Step 1. Import AVCHD MTS/M2TS files to Aunsoft Final Mate. <br />Run Aunsoft Final Mate as the <b><a href="http://sony-mts-converter.com/2011/06/powerpoint-video-converter-hd-video-recordings-to-powerpoint/">best HD video to PowerPoint converter</a></b> on Windows 7. You can import files directly from camcorder or from hard drive. For videos from camcorder, just connect it to PC via USB cable and follow the wizard. For video on hard drive, just go to the Resource tab, click the Add Path button to browse the folder with AVCHD files. <br /><br />Step 2. <b>Join and cut AVCHD clips</b>. <br />Select the files from the Resource or Camcorder tab, drag and drop to the Movies tab to create a single movie. To get another file as output, just click the drop-down button of the Create New Movie button and choose For Conversion, then drag and drop other clips to the new movie ID. The files are joined/merged automatically. <br /><br />Step 3. Deinterlace 1080i to 1080p. (optional) <br />If your camcorder provides 1080i recordings, you can tick the checkbox for deinterlacing to remove the lines and make video as progressive mode. <br /><br />Step 4. <b>Convert AVCHD to WMV PowerPoint format</b>. <br />Click the Export button, and go to the last tab. Choose Common Video &gt; WMV3 (WMV9)(*.wmv) as output format. Then click the OK button, and the MS <b><a href="http://canon-videoconverter.com/2011/06/best-hd-video-to-powerpoint-converter-deinterlace-avchd-for-powerpoint/">PowerPoint video converter</a></b> will <b>convert AVCHD recordings to WMV for PowerPoint on Windows 7</b>. <br /><br />Wait for a while, and you can <b><a href="http://www.aunsoft.com/final-mate/">Insert/Import the output file to Microsoft PowerPoint</a></b> to create colorful slideshow, and enhance your PPT. <br /><br /><b>Tips:</b> <br />For Mac users with PowerPoint on Mac OS X like Leopard or Snow Leopard, you can try Aunsoft <b>Final Mate for Mac</b> as slideshow presentation helper on Mac.

Microsoft power point slideshow wont open


Hello,

Your problem is either with your microsoft office installation, microsoft powerpoint installation or the powerpoint slideshow you are trying to open is damaged (or contains macros/virus etc) and thats why is taking long to open or doesn't open at all.

Recommendation #1: Do a repair install of the microsoft office you have now ( 2003 or 2007) You have to go to Control Panel-> Programs and Features-> select MS Office Proffesional 2003 or 2007 and click "repair" on the top bar of th Programs and Features toolbar.

Recommendation #2: In case the powerpoint slideshow is broken, see This link or This for more specific instructions.

I wan't to open power point


First off, you need to have a copy of PowerPoint Installed.
If you do, then in most cases you can click Start / All Programs / Microsoft Office / and click Power Point.

If you don't have powerpoint you can get the free powerpoint viewer to VIEW the slideshows without having powerpoint installed.

If you need to open a powerpoint slideshow and don't own microsoft office you will have to purchase a copy from almost any computer store.

If you have to make a slide show and don't have Microsoft Office you can always use the FREE OpenOffice software that can open most MS Office documents and has all the same features as MS Office.

How can I make slideshows for youtube?


Youtube only accepts video formats like MP4, AVI, FLV, so you have to make a video slideshow.

To make a video slideshow, you can first make a PowerPoint slideshow with your Microsoft PowerPoint, if you are using PowerPoint 2010, you can save your slideshow to wmv video directly, if you are using PowerPoint 2007 or a lower PowerPoint version, you can use a powerpoint to video converter like

Moyea PPT to Video Converter
http://www.dvd-ppt-slideshow.com/ppt-to-video/
Leawo PowerPoint to Video
http://www.leawo.com/powerpoint-video-converter/

After the conversion, you can upload the video slideshow to youtube smoothly.

I have a Optoma PK102 portable projector and I cannot play any power point presentation which is loaded onto the device - any advsie on what is going wrong


Ahoy there. I have the Aaxa P2 and they told me to convert all the powerpoint slides to jpg first and then use the onboard media player's slideshow feature. It works great. I don't know if the pk102 has the same features but I hope that helps. If not you might want to consider getting a different one.

Hitachi cp-s240 remote question


Hitachi data projectors are able to function as a mouse using either the USB port or the control port located on the back of the projector.

However, they are not intended to be used as a remote presenter. This means that although you can use the remote as a mouse, you will not be able to change slides in a full screen slide show using powerpoint.

I recommend the Targus remote presenter for this purpose. This device will function as a mouse, pointing device, and will allow you to change slides in powerpoint. In addition, it's inexpensive, wireless, and small enough to easily fit in your pocket.

Need to do powerpoint program


You can't. Powerpoint is a Microsoft program that must be installed on your machine. If you want a free version or a slideshow program (such as powerpoint), you can download OpenOffice for free.The program is called Impress.
