Greetings,

Set up a video camera so that it covers the audience. (Cover the red
light in front of the camera.) One should be able to see the IR signal
and see who is doing it. Now if there was a laser that could seek it out
and short out the batteries. Would be a hot time in the old town
tonight!

Cliff,
Luckily our Projection system is not controlled by an IR
controller. But this bit of news seems apropos.

and what they did about it.
