Currently Being ModeratedJul 22, 2010 9:33 AM (in response to theringnebula)The only way I could think of that this might be accomplished would be to put the slides as pages on a web site, use a push technology to push out the page update (sites often use this sort of technology for updates from live keynotes and press conferences), and have everyone connect to that web page. There's no way I've heard of to be able to control an iPad directly.

Currently Being ModeratedJul 22, 2010 10:46 AM (in response to enderx)Correct, they do require signing up with the service, but it might be worth it if this is something the company wants to do regularly. So those are good suggestions.

Currently Being ModeratedJul 22, 2010 11:04 AM (in response to enderx)I have done this with GoToMeeting, but the main presentation had to be pushed from a non-iPad device. The GoToMeeting app for iPad does not allow presenting, only viewing.IMac Intel 20" , Mac Mini PPC and MacBook Pro 2.2ghz (4GB, SSD), iPad 64GB X2, Mac OS X (10.5), iPhone 3G
Currently Being ModeratedJul 22, 2010 11:55 AM (in response to theringnebula)Just thinking off the top of my head, you could use something like TeamViewer to show a Keynote presentation to all 30 iPads. The device that's showing the Keynote would have to be either a laptop or desktop computer with wireless router. You could also hookup a second display to the laptop and have the iPads viewing the second display instead of the main display.
Something in the order of what you want to do is plausible. But, would take some planning.G-4 1.2 GIG, 1.5 GIGs of Ram, Mac OS X (10.5.8), Quicktime 7.6.4, FCS2, nano 5th, iPad and a bunch of other stuff...
Currently Being ModeratedJul 27, 2010 3:00 AM (in response to David M Brewer)Sorry but a much cheaper alternative would be to use a Mac & data projector surly!!
All the problems could be solved and a lot cheaper to!!
Or am I missing something here?

I'm a little late to the party, and it's been two years, but if anyone else is reading this, we developed an app exactly for this kind of use case. It's called Anywhere Pad, and one of its key features is a real-time synchronisation of the presenter's current page view. Unlike other solutions like TeamViewer and Webex, our app does not transmit the screen but insteads transmits the page flip actions in order to synchronise the current page or slide of the meeting document, leading to less bandwidth needed. This is especially important for a scenario with 30 iPads.
