[nycphp-talk] [OT] live slide-show delivery via browser only

I'm looking for a free/OSS (preferably PHP-oriented) solution to this
problem: Deliver paged content (eg., typical still-frame slide show) to
any number of viewers via the web browser only, while providing only the
host/operator with the controls to advance the slides in real time; and
don't require the user to have anything other than a decent Internet
connection and fairly modern browser.
If nobody knows of an existing package like this, it seems it would be
fairly simple to build, no? Page-forward/back/jump commands could be
sent by the operator to a database or file on the server, and some
commands and then adjust the display accordingly.
Question: Is this
a) so self-apparent and easy that nobody's bothered to develop a package
b) much more complicated than I've explained and thus potentially a
waste of time?
c) contained already in some fairly simple CGI package you know about
and I don't?
