    Hope this is the right area for this....

    I have a need to perform training with a service like Webex or Skype. Using a Windows PC, I need to simulcast (share content) my iPad screen at the same time or by switching screens so that I can demonstrate how to use some of my company's iOS applications to users. I want to be able to show what buttons within the app I am touching so the users can see where I am at on screen.

    Do any of you know of an application and hardware device I can use to perform this?

    Some of the easily searched Google responses of Lonelyscreen, and regular airplay don't cut it. They don't do what I need.

    If special hardware is needed, that is OK, it is important enough to purchase it.

    Is this a requirement? I know of a way to get what you need with a Mac, but not Windows

    I'm not 100% sure but I don't think you can share your iOS screen outside of the app. What might work still is that you can see and record video of the current iOS screen when hooked up to a Mac and recording via QuickTime. On a PC, not sure that can be done.

    Yes but if the Mac version works very well, they may purchase a MacBook for the purpose.

    That is the issue I see too. Live is not working well especially with what I have found so far (lonelyscreen and the Chinese language version of Airplayer).

    On a Mac, if you connect the iOS device to it via Lightning/USB, you can use QuickTime to record the screen. There is also an app called ScreenFlow that'll allow you to easily make it clear where you're tapping, dragging, etc. If you need to have it go out live, you can use either of the above to record the screen of the iOS device onto the Mac, whilst then using something like OBS to stream the Mac's display which would be showing the iOS display. Alternatively, you can use a video adapter, such as Lightning to HDMI, and plug it into a hardware recorder, but this may cause issues, as whatever app you're using might behave differently with connected displays.
