P.S. - we also generally have laser pointer available too.

> "Our" (available to BALUG) converter thingy covers "640x480" (less
> perhaps some slight edge losses as noted on the URL above).  However it's
> not fixed to the upper left 640x480 - it will, for example, track
> mouse motions and pan the area of the input video that is converted and
> output.  So, ... for example, if one designs the "slides" for the upper
> left 640x480, and has on-screen notes, if/when one moves mouse over one's
> on-screen notes, what's covered on the projection will pan to show that.
> If one's able to make the jump back and forth pretty quick (e.g. when
> changing slides anyway), and remembers to shove the mouse/cursor to the
> upper
> left right after any repositioning/scrolling of "notes", the effect works
