Abstract

A large screen display is attached to a personal computer workstation and controlled by workstation software to allow stored textual and pictorial pages to be selectively displayed on the large screen for an audience. The workstation stores the current contents of the large screen display, and a floppy disk stores additional pages for display. An operator controls the system by keying in commands. The operator may display lists of visual aid material and control options on the workstation screen and move stored pages into the workstation for interactive control. The operator may compose, edit or format pages for storage in the floppy disk or immediate large screen display.
