I have no technology skills and thought I should inquire into if the IPad would work or should I purchase a document camera?

The one problem I have not been able to solve is hooking up an external wired or bluetooth mini boombox. My projector has an HDMI connection and a pretty good speaker in it so it has not become crucial yet.
After reading your blog, I am wondering if the Kanex device you mention may be my answer. What do you think? If your projector has a VGA input then give the Kanex box a try.

I would then use an external microphone to pick up the audio coming out of the projector speaker. Just a thought: Please keep me posted would like to know how it worked out.
Ben, glad to see this information was helpful and thanks for the kind words. The airport express is a great add on to an AppleTV and projector setup.
