I have been looking into this since we the lightning talks in Chicago
where "hilarity ensued". I think the part we need is:
It has two inputs and two outputs and they can both be set
separately. So when the speaker before you starts on stage, you go
hook into the other wire and set your display to a small monitor on
the floor to make sure everything is right. Then when it is your
turn you switch your computer to use the main screen and the next
speaker starts working on the small one with the other wire.
I think we can rely on the local organizers for a monitor, but I want
to get wires also. Does anyone have an suggestions for good wires
that travel well? Bonus if it comes with audio. They will sell it
in a US, UK, or Europe version, but I can not determine from the
descriptions if I will be able to put an adapter on the US version to
take it with me.
Do we have a box of stuff that is owned by YAPC that is sent from one
place to another yet? Or do I just want to buy one myself?
