Ever tried something running a java app (or Libre/OpenOffice) over VNC, 
particularly if not a really fast computer? Not pretty.

Capture card won't work, presenters bringing their own computer ... well 
you don't want to be opening up everyone's personal box. (Which would be 
particularly challenging with a laptop.)

Is it possible to tee X off over a port?

Remote X session looking at display 0?

Tee the VGA computer to projector cable? (VGA splitter?) [One built in 
to the projector itself?] Which could go in to your box with the capture 
card?

I have a USB to VGA adapter - if the screens were mirrored, you could 
get a feed off it?
