Software for interactive event presentation


I am tasked with producing an interactive multimedia presentation for a small awards show, a presentation that has to be paced by an operator (not me).
So kind of like a standard slideshow but I would like some advanced features like a seamless looping video background while the foreground slide changes, with additional video logos on top (this could be precomped but I would prefer not to), continuous music in the background, all of this in 1080p.
Powerpoint doesn't seem to handle HD video (settled on h264/m4v) nicely, the video plays back far better in e.g. Windows Media Player than from inside Powerpoint.

So far I have found the following alternatives:

- Adobe Director (outdated?)
- Flash (no access to HDD?)
- Keynote (Customer would need a Mac to play back show?)

TLDR; I need a presentation tool like Powerpoint but with far better and advanced video performance.

Can one of you suggest something?

You already know about Keynote, which would be my recommendation. I have a Mac laptop and keep my Keynote presentations on it at all times. It hooks into just about any TV or project and you can do shows anywhere, anytime.

Most highend presentations are done in Ventuz, Vizrt or Orad. All highend broadcast tools. Hope that helps.
