I need to create a portfolio of my work (brochures / writing samples / magazine /newspaper / online clips / television segments / mp3 radio spots) that can be carried on a tablet display and shown during meetings and interviews. Ideally, I'd like to use a tablet that can be easily passed around a room.
To date, I've done this the old fashioned way: portfolio binders with everything in laminated sheet protectors, or by creating powerpoint documents with slides containing jpg or pdf images. But it's time for a digital upgrade.
I'm looking to create 6-8 presentations. Each might have up to 50 slides/images.
What I'm looking for: Hardware / Software recommendations.
* Can what I'm describing be created and run on an iPad or Android tablet?
* If so, using which software? (For the sake of argument, please assume money is no object. I am currently creating similar online presentations with Adobe Lightroom.) Also, what is the best file format? Currently I'm working with jpgs and pdfs, but am open to suggestions.
* If you're recommending an android tablet, which one do you think would be the best to purchase? (If it matters, my computers run Mac OS X, Windows Vista and Ubuntu 10, so connectivity isn't a problem.)
