	Possibly the 'Anabas' thing was before I was here, but I do remember 
using the inSORS 'IGPix' for doing a shared presentation thing. Even 
though we use the basic AccessGrid stuff, the other sites were wanting 
IGPix. We had a speaker here, as well as him listening to other 
presentations. As far as I recall it worked satisfactorily. It just did 
powerpoint slides. The SharedPresentation is much more slick imho.
