Chapter 12. Giving the Presentation > Setting Up the Projector

Setting Up the Projector

Most presentations are viewed by being projected onto a large screen, but you can also show them on your computer screen, or on a second monitor connected to your computer. When you're using a second display (either a second monitor or a projector) you can choose to use video mirroring, where the picture on the presentation computer and the second display are identical, or dual displays, where the slideshow plays on the second display, and your display shows you Keynote's Presenter Display (more about that later).

When you're using a portable Macintosh to give your presentation, such as a PowerBook or an iBook with a video-out port, you can use video mirroring with either kind of portable. But if you want to use dual displays, you must have a PowerBook, because iBooks are limited to video mirroring. You will use the System Preferences Displays pane to control the two monitors and choose either video mirroring or dual displays.
