    You can export each slide as a TIFF (so you don't get compression artifacts on the images) and put them in a photo album on a Mac or iPad/iPod. You can then share the album and move from slide to slide.

    If you need animations and are confident with your timing I think you can export from Keynote to an MP4/H.264 video and play it that way, too.

    Sure, so long as the projector supports HDMI... You can also likely use an HDMI to DVI cable to run a projector, but I don't think the analog inputs will work (VGA, Component, Composite, S-Video).

    I don't know if it would be able to negotiate to a 1024x768 screen or if you would need a 1280x720, 1366x768, or 1920x1080 projector.
