# Examples of great presentations and alternatives to Beamer

I am familiar with beamer and have used it extensively but I was blown off when I saw this:

http://online.redwoods.cc.ca.us/instruct/darnold/linalg/latex/project_latex.pdf

I would like to know how such a thing can be done, if there are pre-existing packages like beamer, and some neat examples like this. Does anyone know?

Looks cool, but definitely not a presentation worthy imo. Presentations shouldn't be wall of text, rather a short notes important to the talk you are giving... –  dingo_d May 5 '11 at 5:29
I think the real point of pdfscreen is to be screen optimized, which is handy. I even used it to make a mobile-screen friendly version of a paper. –  Suresh May 5 '11 at 16:49

The beginning of the preamble. By the way, replace the .pdf with .tex and you'll get the source

\documentclass[titlepage]{article}
\usepackage{xspace,colortbl}
\usepackage[screen,panelright,code,bluelace,paneltoc]{pdfscreen}
\margins{.5in}{.5in}{.5in}{.5in}
\screensize{6in}{8in}
\overlay{aaCWS.jpg}
\emblema{logo_cir.jpg}
\urlid{http://online.redwoods.cc.ca.us/instruct/darnold}
\usepackage{amsmath}
...

This document looks as if it has been created using the pdfscreen (LaTeX) package.
