New Program Allows Projection of Two PowerPoint Presentations on a Single Projector or Monitor

New Program Allows Projection of Two PowerPoint Presentations on a Single Projector or Monitor.

Projecting two PowerPoint presentations on one screen is now as easy as a few clicks with the mouse. After being inspired by complaints from senior staff at an alumni day presentation, Christopher L. Shelby, M. D. of FatByte Multimedia Group, L. L.C., took maters into his own hands and developed DualPoint.

Shreveport, Louisiana (PRWEB) August 6, 2003

DualPoint allows a user to take any two PowerPoint presentations and project them simultaneously onto one screen or from a single projector. “Before DualPoint was available“, says Dr. Shelby, “if someone wanted to make a presentation using two projectors they would need two digital projectors, two computers and a whole bunch of money.”

DualPoint was inspired after Dr. Barrett Haik, of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, gave a lecture at the Alumni day conference for LSU Health Science Centers Ophthalmology Department. During the lecture, Dr. Haik used two carrousel projectors to give his presentation. When asked why he did not give his presentation using PowerPoint, Dr. Haik replied that there was no way to project two slides side by side without accruing a huge cost in equipment. DualPoint was born.

All aspects of each presentation can be adjusted to suit the users needs. The size of each presentation can be independently set to create an infinite number of aesthetic possibilities. The individual presentations can be advanced together or separately depending on the users needs.

10% of all proceeds from the sale of DualPoint will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Shriners Hospital. “Hopefully the sale of this program will help change the lives of some children and their families.” says Dr. Shelby.

DualPoint is PC compatible and runs on Windows 95/98/ME/2000/XP. Microsoft PowerPoint must be installed for DualPoint to work. A free, fully functional, 5 day trial version can be downloaded at www. dualpoint. net. The registration key costs only $18.95 and will unlock the program after the trial period.
