Centrally control slide shows on different machines
OfficeOne PowerShow allows you to display multiple slide shows through multiple monitors connected to a machine. PowerShow Session Controller allows you to view and manage multiple slide shows from one place.
Spacedesk allows you to use monitors connected to other machines as monitors on a particular machine. It shows monitors connected to other machines as if they are connected to a particular machine. You can use PowerShow in conjunction with Spacedesk to display slide shows across monitors connected to different machines and also synchronize them.
The configuration steps are as follows:
  1. Download and install Spacedesk Server on your machine that would run PowerShow. The download .zip file contains two installation files. One for PrimaryPC, which installs the server and you install that on the machine that would run PowerPoint and PowerShow. There is this SecondaryPC installer, which installs the viewer and you install that on your machine from where you would view full-screen the server's additional monitors created virtually by Spacedesk.
  2. Download and install Spacedesk Client (Personal View) on the machine that adds display to Spacedesk Server. Each client adds a display to the server.
  3. Start Spacedesk Server first and then start Spacedesk clients on the other machines. The Spacedesk clients will search and locate the Server automatically and add a display to the server. You can make the client full-screen through the View menu, Full screen menu item.
  4. After the Server and Clients connect with each other, start PowerPoint and use PowerShow. PowerShow correctly identifies the Spacedesk's virtual monitors as monitors connected to the system. You can now use PowerShow normally.
  5. You can now configure PowerShow to show the Session Controller on your primary monitor and the slide shows on other Spacedesk clients. For a configuration where there is a monitor physically connected to your central machine and two monitors connected virtually through Spacedesk, the Spacedesk clients are identified as monitor 2 and 3. Assuming you want to display slide shows for presentations Presentation1.ppt and Presentation2.ppt on monitors 2 and 3 respectively and Session Controller on your primary monitor to control the slide shows, the following are the steps:
    1. Open your presentation in PowerPoint.
    2. Select Slide Show | Power Show... menu item.
    3. On the Presentations tab, set up the configuration as follows:
      1. Select <Session Controller> in first row and 1 monitor.
      2. Select Presentation1 <Slide Show> in the second row and 1 monitor.
      3. Select Presentation2 <Slide Show> in the third row and 1 monitor.
    4. Click Start Show button.
