Is there a good wireless solution to present to a TV?  We have been using a solution called Airtame (WiFi/HDMI adapter that plugs into the back of the TV) but it's hit or miss - sometimes it works great and other times there is significant delay and disconnects (Airtame connects to our WiFi network and laptop connects to WiFi network - Airtame app on the laptop is what allows connectivity to the Airtame device and allows the laptop to present).  Could be related to our wireless network but as far as I can tell, there are no other wireless issues...

I know we could always use an HDMI cable to present to the TV but the CEO likes to be wireless :(

I am looking for a decent wireless microphone system with at least 2 channels for small presentations of less than 60 participants.

Ideally, this is what I am looking for...

- 1 wireless lavalier microphone for the presenter. Ideally one without a bulky transmitter.
- 1 handheld wireless microphone for audience participation.
- A channel mixer with a line out to record audio on computer.

The device needs to cost under $300.00

I have searched Amazon and I can't find any units that have a good rating and offer a handheld wireless mic with a lavalier style presenter mic.

Any ideas?

Thank you. :)
Very little experience with MS PowerPoint.  I need a fancy presentation to wow the bosses.  Need some graphics for my slide:  some illustration of a computer system, and illustration of software package.

I manage about 24 computer systems environments and need to know which computer systems any of have the (3) expensive software packages installed.  Example: ( and Yes Computers are named after Ski Resorts )

i'm from germany and try to explain my exchange problem.

First i will tell you some about my environment.
2x DC running on W2K16
2x Exchange 2016 running on W2K16 in a DAG

I want use our Proxmox Mailgateway as smarthost.
When I enter the IP of the smarthost, everything is fine.
But i want use the FQDN because this name will be used soon in about 20 exchange servers.
There will be an error in exchange queue:
26.02.2018 15:01:27 - Server at mailrelay.mydomain.int returned '451 4.4.0 DNS query failed. The error was: SMTPSEND.DNS.NonExistentDomain; nonexistent domain mailrelay.mydomain.int -> DnsDomainDoesNotExist: InfoDomainNonexistent'

In cmd console on exchange and dc i can use nslookup and the result is ok.

Why can't the exchange resolve the FQDN when i use them as sent connector?
Where can I look for errors execpt the event log?

I hope you can help me :-)

Best Regards,
I need a small footprint PowerPoint countdown I can drag into my presentations weekly.

It will be at the start ... should be 5 minutes long with the ability to swap out the background.

I don;t know if there is a widget of some kind I can use?

I am using Office365
There is a user manual for a camera located at https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=2&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjp46SOhO3VAhVj7IMKHcLABFoQFggrMAE&url=http%3A%2F%2Fsupport.casio.com%2Fmanualfile.php%3Frgn%3D2%26cid%3D001007048&usg=AFQjCNFevvPVWHgCmeFsJ3Ob58WE9GR6ZA

It is 200 pages. What app would I use to print it out 4 pages per sheet and print both sides to minimize paper use?
( I know there must be a more elegant way to reference a website than to do as I did above but I don't know what that method might be.) I do have Office and Photoshop and CorelDraw.
I bought this one about a year ago, opened it uf a fews days ago, and learned it had a hardware failure...


I need something like it, from a different manufacturer, that connects through USB or BT.

I need it to have at least:

1) a laser pointer
2) Up / Down arrows

And it must function well on a Mac.

Is it possible to share a Goole slide deck with someone and force it full screen?

I don't want the viewer to see the thumbs slides on the side and I need to make sure it is viewed in presentation mode, otherwise the deck will not make sense as i have several images and text that need to animate over each other. If you it view it without 'Presenation' mode, the graphics and text and all mumbled on top of each other.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Avoiding 3 Common PowerPoint Misuses
A lot of things can happen during a presentation, worst of which is “death by PowerPoint.” Here are a few mistakes to avoid to make your slides clean.
I am trying to overlay a video of me discussing slides in one of the corners of the video.

I'm looking for some ways to liven up a crappy bulletted PowerPoint presentation.
It's a "mandatory" course and it's just lecture. but there's gotta be something things that can liven it up.

I am looking for a recommendation for free software that will allow me to capture video/audio of my desktop, an active window, or a specified area.  I need it to be able to create small file sizes as well.  I have been working with CamStudio, and am just fed up trying to get it to work.  I would like to have something really easy to use so I can push it out to users and ask them to document common issues, do demos, and short training.  If I have to I can buy it, but it seems like there would be some freeware out there.  Any advice will be appreciated.  Needs to be Win 10 compatible and show the mouse.  Thank you!
I want to have a bottom-of-slide banner on every slide except the title slide.
But when I go into the slide master view, my banner is not removable from the title slide layout.  It can only be removed from the slide master. How can I keep the banner on every slide except the Title slide?
I am looking for a software solution that would allow us to use a TV connected to a computer, to present a slideshow of sorts for company events, visitors in the office, employee birthdays, meeting dates..etc.

I would like to be able to update the "slides" quickly each day.

I think PowerPoint will take too much time to create a new presentation for each day.  

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

we are redoing a conference room and I am looking very hard at a device by BARCO (CS-100) to allow presenters to wirelessly display to an HD TV Monitor.   Does anyone have any experience with this device and if it works well.  Looking for something that presenters that come in with a tablet or laptop whether it is Windows 10 or 7 (or even a MAC) can show their presentation.

Also - wondering if there is a way in our city council chambers to have a presentation viewable on each council members' laptop or ipad?  IS there such a way to do this wirelessly?

Storytelling through Photography
I designed this idea while studying technology in the classroom.  This is a semester long project.  Students are asked to take photographs on a specific topic which they find meaningful, it can be a place or situation such as travel or homelessness.  Students are then meant to compile their images together and give a presentation at the end of the class of their images and reasoning behind choosing there subject.  Strong technology skills are required as this project requires use of camera, computer and editing software.  Students will need to be guided through the steps of taking images, importing images and creating a presentation of there images throughout the entire semester.
1.  Photograph Images (could be taken from DSLR, camera or even just phone camera)
2.  Upload images to Computer
3.  Create a presentation (current video used iMovie)
4.  Add voice over to presentation
5.  Students present their projects to the class with explanation on the chosen topic

Each step should be gone over and taught in class to give students the opportunity to do the same with their own presentations.

Is there  a Overhead Projector that has the ability to adjust the screen size without moving the projector.   I understand it is the len that controls this but cannot find a projector with this adjustable len capabilities.

We have a projector mounted in at the ceiling 18' from wall,   it is used at this point for full size screen 7'X12' image for  a simulator software program.

We need to use this same room for  Meeting/conference/presentations also  the projector needs to adjust the projection screen size to approx.   5'x5'  image.

I've created a PowerPoint presentation for a kiosk but my issue is every time we launch it the mouse pointer is visible how can we make it when we create the presentation in PowerPoint we can automatically hide the mouse when it's launched is there an option in Powerpoint for this?
I want to be able to paste text and change the formatting of certain lines in an existing text box, named "author", on my powerpoint file.  I have a bank of authors that the user chooses from (1-10).  I have a Select Case setup to automatically assign values to variables I'm using to populate the text box with:

Case Else
  strEngName = "<author's name>"  'line 1
  strEngTitle = "<author's title>"  'line 2
  strPhone = "Office: <author's phone>"  'line 3
  strEmail = "Email: <author's email>"  'line 4

Open in new window

The first two lines are Black and Bold Italic, the next two lines are Gray and Italic.

The text box is existing and I'm just replacing placeholder text.
On Powerpoint 2010, how to edit header part on the page?
