Or Teamviewer or other remote app and a tablet/laptop.

RE: Long Distance PowerPoint Remote Control

Andrzejek, DrB0b,

Thank you for your responses. I was already looking into KVM Extenders. They'll do the job (quite easily), but are on the expensive side. My query was for other means or methods not having a hard impact on the wallet.

Control by remote applications like TeamViewer (suggested by DrBob) would work a low price, but I'm trying not to use a laptop with an additional monitor from the podium on stage.
The speaker simply needs to page thru the PowerPoint Presentation and perform some pointing with the mouse. There's a 60" monitor angled up at the podium where the speaker sees the same on the big theatre screen behind them.

I'm currently writing my proposal for a meeting tomorrow.
Again thanks for the input ... and you guys take care ... Ya, Hear!

See Ya . . .

RE: Long Distance PowerPoint Remote Control

It is possible to remotely control the mouse from the front stage with the help of using a laser pointer to point on to the screen to some details.
