How will you use Mirroring360?
Educators – Let your students share their ideas or homework without moving from their seat. Students simply select your computer from the Airplay menu to mirror their screen. Teachers can also share their screen with the class. Combined with Splashtop Classroom, it allows the mirrored iOS screen to be screencast across computers, iPads/iPhones, Android devices and Chromebooks. Great for your 1:1 or BYOD program!
Instructors and Presenters – Wirelessly present from your iPad or iPhone anywhere in the room. Let others present their own content or apps without moving from their seat. Present any app or content over a WebEx, join.me or GoToMeeting session.
Trainers and Demonstrators – Demonstrate the latest app features. Test participant’s expertise by mirroring their device. Share internal apps, product demos and more.
Media Enthusiasts – Share your photos or music with your family on a big screen (via a computer). Sit back and remote control the screen with your iOS device.
Gamers – Show your gaming skills on a big screen (via a computer), with great performance and sound for an enjoyable, immersive experience.
Furthermore, Mirroring Assist has been updated to facilitate the deployment and management of Mirroring360 for larger schools and organizations. Mirroring360 enables presenters, teachers and students to wirelessly share their device screens (iPad, iPhone, Chromebooks, PC, Mac) to any computer or smart display.
Mirroring Assist enables the use of a QR-code based discovery to connect the iOS devices with the computers, bypassing Bonjour. You can mirror your iPad or iPhone screens across different subnets and VLANs as long as the networks are routable. This new tool has significant implications on ease-of-deployment at large schools and corporates:
- IT administrators do not need to re-configure the school’s networks for Bonjour, saving time and money.
- IT administrators can disable Bonjour broadcast, avoiding unnecessary network traffic. Also, it helps to avoid the issue where the iOS device would discover a large list of computers when starting AirPlay.
“Mirroring360 solves many of our problems of connecting an iPad on our school network. We have worked for a very long time trying to get AirPlay to work with no success,” says Rick Meyer, the Technology Facilitator and Instructor at Sidney Public Schools. “Finally there is something that is easy to use and isn’t a burden on our IT staff.”
The update to Mirroring360 also includes features and tools to facilitate large deployments at schools and districts, such as a .msi package and preset configuration options. Learn more at: www.mirroring360.com/mirroring-assist.
