Powerpoint or Keynote Video Presentation Using An Apple TV

Most of you who have seen the Apple TV probably never thought it of it as much more than a wireless T.V. box with a hard drive.  The reality is that it can easily become a killer presentation device that you can use in your conference room, your office show room window, your waiting room and there are certainly other uses.  Consider that the Apple TV can play a slideshow photos and it can play movies.  Now think about a very cool PowerPoint or Keynote presentation that you have created.  Remember that you can export those presentation files as a Quicktime Movie file.  You just created a presentation movie that can be played on your Apple TV.  You could have dozens of different presentations that you can select just like you would select a movie from your DVR.  You could create a PowerPoint presention video file explaining the home buying process along with hundreds of other useful videos.   

Many real estate agents are using video as part of their marketing plan and this is where the Apple TV can really make you shine.  Imagine creating a real estate listing video and saving it as a high quality Quicktime file and wirelessly uploading it to your Apple TV.  You could have ALL of your listings on your Apple TV for your buyers and sellers to see.  The best part of this is that each of your videos could be in your movie library list on your Apple TV and as you create more listing videos you can continually be adding them to your Apple TV through your wireless connection on iTunes.  The future uses of this technology are pretty much endless.

Never really thought to use it this way, it is a nice interface, too bad one could not include their own logos or had a little more control over the interface.

Todd, I am not 100% sure I understand your question about logos but you can certainly create a Keynote or PowerPoint slide with a log intro very easily.  You can also create a slide template that could have your logo on it.  If this is not specifically what you are talking about if you can give me an example I will try to help.

Hi Sam,

    I was talking about the actual interface you have pictured above, it would be nice if that could be customized with my colors and logo.  I know it isn't an option but it would make the presentation just a little more professional.

Thanks Todd - I am with you now.  Something customized similar to how you would utilize background on your desktop or your screen saver but specifically like a menu.  I agree that would be a neat feature.
