[AG-TECH] Questions about remote presentation technology software

Since IGPix was mentioned, I thought I should provide some detail...

IGPix is inSORS data sharing piece of the inSORS grid software.  It has been
used at SC Global the last few years as well as many other large events
within the AG community.  It allows for screen sharing of any application or
document including but not limited to powerpoint presentations.

The presenter needs to have the insors software runnning on the computer he
is presenting from (currently only on Windows).  The other sites do not need
to be running the software, they can view the data in a browser window.

	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.
