Any suggestions to improve the situation? Is it possible to play Keynote presentation without having the presentation occupying the entire screen. Perhaps half the screen is devoted to skype and the other half is devoted to Keynote? Thanks.
I see that someone has already suggested using Conceptdraw MM over Skype, but I wanted to add some detail to the suggestion. The reason that it works is that the presentation you are going to give is downloaded to everyone's computer prior to the presentation. Once the presentation starts all of the displays are synced. This works like magic, even when there is not much bandwidth available. Plus at the conclusion of the presentation everyone who participated has a copy of all of the materials used in the briefing. The quality of the presentation is great. The downside is that I had to shell out about 200 USD per team member, however the upside is that we have found lots of uses for Conceptdraw MM
so our payback period was calculated to be less then a month. Very cool solution.
