    • Clicking the Play button selects your device as the presentation source, sending whatever is on your dscreen to the room display.
    • While presenting, it is often necessary to navigate away from your presentation.  AirMedia lets you pause the presentation, freezing the current image on screen so others can continue to view it whle you look through your personal files.  Once you've located new content and brought it up on your device, simply click Play to resume the presentation.

  • Althrough AirMedia can support up to 32 connected computers for sharing, only four desktops can be displayed at a time in Quad View.
  • While AirMedia can play video, it is recommended for high-definition video requirements to use a direct connection rather than the wireless solution.

  • *An alternative method rather than using a web browser to download the AirMedia utility client is to download installer, this will benefit mainly Mac users by allowing the audio to function without any further installation and or setting changes.
