History

Without a projector installed:

You don't have anything like the projector for this type of data. If you recall correctly, they used to use a network of interlocking lasers to do it.

You'd just need, well, lasers. Lots and lots of lasers.

With Charred Projector installed:

You have a projector for this type of data, but it's kind of… well, charred at the moment. You'll have to repair it first.

With Laser Projector installed:

You transfer the data over to your projector. The lasers converge and dance, carving an image of green flames from the air. Slowly, the flames take on the aspect of a beautiful woman.

She smiles down at you.

With Holographic Projector installed, etheric or sober:

Flaming-Woman.jpg

You transfer the data over to your projector. The lasers converge and dance, carving an image of green flames from the air. Slowly, the flames take on the aspect of a beautiful woman.

She smiles down at you.

You kick back and watch for a while, marveling at how lifelike these new technological creations can be.

Perhaps different message depending on your history with her?

History (pre Halloween 2012)

The result depends on your actions in the Avatar of Flame encounter from Halloween 2009.

(Added a day or two after release:)
That said, modern lasers are pretty complex, so it might be better to look into more antiquated designs.
Laser projector, bowed down

You transfer the data over to your projector. The lasers converge and dance, outlining flames that slowly take on the aspect of a beautiful woman.

She looks down at you with an imperious, but kind, smile for as long as you care to watch.

You transfer the data over to your projector. The lasers converge and dance, carving an image of green flames from the air. Slowly, the flames take on the aspect of a beautiful woman.

She smiles down at you. "Hello again, old friend. You have not changed at all, but I suppose that is the curse of your kind, until you steal the brother's secrets."

"If you are true to your word, you will deliver this contrivance," she gestures at the projector, "and others like it to your kin known as Geiravor."

She looks down at you with a stern gaze for as long as you care to watch.

You transfer the data over to your projector. The lasers converge and dance, carving an image of green flames from the air. Slowly, the flames take on the aspect of a beautiful woman.

She frowns down at you. "Hello again. Let us both hope you learned from your previous mistakes. I will give you another chance because you may not even remember them, for that is the curse of your kind."

"You should find your kin known as Geiravor and present this contrivance," she gestures at the projector, "and others like it to her. Then you will be forgiven."

She looks down at you with a crackling sound you can barely identify as laughter. "Hello again, old friend. I trust this time you won't try to 'cure' me. I assure you, I am quite well. Quite well indeed."

She taps her chin with one finger. "In fact, the only thing that could make it better is if you delivered this contrivance," she gestures at the projector, "and others like it to Geiravor, your kin."

She smiles down at you. "Hello. We have not met, but I have long seen your face dancing in the flames. Perhaps you will help me."

"The contrivance you view this echo through is more than a gateway for entertainment, although bloodsport has long been favored by your people." She makes a crackling sound distantly related to laughter.

"You should take it, and others of its kind to Geiravor, your kin. Then, perhaps, we can meet without such… barriers."

On/After? Halloween Party:

She smiles down at you. "Perhaps we will not be able to meet face to face yet, but I think I may have a treat almost as good."

During the Collapsed Dorm event (and maybe earlier):

The projector tries to form an image, but it disappears quickly, like a fire being snuffed by roaring winds.
