Title: ELECTRONIC PRESENTATION SYSTEM USING PORTABLE STORAGE DEVICE IN PLACE OF A PERSONAL COMPUTER
Abstract:
A method of facilitating electronic presentations using a portable storage device (3) in place of a personal computer to generate an array of images for display on an electronic display system (8) such as an LCD projector. A laptop computer is typically employed to generate a series of electronic slides as part of a presentation to an audience. A smaller, simpler, more robust device may be employed to accomplish the same task increasing both convenience to the presenter and reliability. The system includes a device (3) that receives and stores presentation images from a personal computer prior to the presentation. At the time of presentation, the device is connected to a display device (8) such as an overhead LCD projection system via a standard video interface, such as a VGA port.
