    Does anyone know of a solution that would allow me to use a single projector to display the contents (monitors) of two separate computers simultaneously?

    I am doing a product demo in about a month that will require being able to display Computer A and Computer B on a single screen at the front of the room.

    Perhaps there's some sort of dual input adapter that would allow this? Anyone have any suggestions?

    If you're looking for a projector, Panasonic makes wireless projectors that can have multiple computers connected to it and display the screens of up to 16 computers simultaneously.

    If you're looking for a software solution, or a hardware solution that works with existing projectors, I'm not entirely sure. Sorry.

    Good suggestion, but the demo involves actually showing two different people on two separate computers interacting collaboratively via web 2.0 cloud-based technologies.

    On top of that, it's also critical for the demo to showcase the lack of any lag and the overall snappy-ness of the site, so VNC is likely to destroy any chance of that.

    Is there an adapter of some sort that would allow me to pull this off?

    Any other suggestions?

    I can't think of one that would be cheaper than a second low-end projector.
