In the June, 2014 Buckeye Educational Update article, "Say It With Video," I provide instructions for creating and delivering a high quality video using an iPad, free apps and YouTube. The following except introduces the technique I employed.
"Using video to enhance your company’s image or inform customers about new products and services is becoming very popular these days. No longer is video something to be viewed as time consuming, requiring expensive equipment or restricted to video professionals. In fact, any person with an interest in plants and owns a smartphone or tablet can be taking photos, capturing video, recording audio and editing their projects, all on the same device.
But video is not just for the company website. Millions of people routinely add video to their Social Networking conversations hosted by Facebook, Twitter or Google+. Imagine a situation where a customer is texting your sales manager or posting a message on the company Facebook page and you are able to respond not only with a text message or a photo but also a video clip you have hosted on YouTube covering common situations encountered each year.
In this article, I will showcase some of the current videos available online from various garden centers, landscape designers and wholesale nurseries which feature a company’s services or educates consumers in the proper way to care for plants. I’ll describe how you can create your own video using still images, background music and a voice-over narration using only an iPhone or iPad. Lastly, I’ll explain how to upload the video to your own video channel on YouTube and link to it from your website."

I put together a brief slideshow to compare the amount of screen real estate being used on a LCD or HD monitor when streaming the iPad to AirServer or Apple TV. Caution: your mileage may vary but I still endorse AirServer as the way to go. Using an LCD projector with 1024x768 resolution:
