Visual Presenters replaced the "Overhead Projector" used for transparencies and writing display years ago.  At Metro it began with the "Elmo".  That is why you may hear someone refer to any Visual Presenter as an "Elmo".  But, in this case, Elmo is the brand of Visual Presenter along with JVC and Cannon presenters.
