How to view PDF as a slideshows?

Question: I'm looking for an answer, if there is somehow possible to view PDF file (ASP.NET MVC 3 project) in other way like a standard in the adobe plug-in. My client wants to show the PDF file like a slide show (or navigate horizontally through the pages) and protect the PDF file from being downloaded. So, maybe there is a JavaScript/jQuery control to change the presentation of the PDF or maybe some other way ? Is it even possible ? Any ideas on VeryPDF ?
