We've been working hard over the last couple of weeks to update some of the technology in University Hall
We are piloting an installation of Apple, Android and Windows display sharing. We've fitted an Apple TV and a Miracast dongle into the lectern.
You'll now find two extra buttons on the control panel.
To do this you need to use peer-to-peer AirPlay. You will need to stand in the vicinity of the PC, and have bluetooth switch on on your device.
The device is called: University Hall Apple TV
With peer-to-peer AirPlay, your iOS device and Apple TV don't have to be on the same Wi-Fi network. To use peer-to-peer AirPlay, you need one of these devices with iOS 8 or later:
· iPhone 5 or later
· iPad mini or iPad (4th generation or later)
· iPod touch (5th generation or later)
For more information please look at the Apple support site- https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT204289
To do this you need to use bluetooth. You will need to stand in the vicinity of the PC, and have bluetooth or a widi compliant device.
The device is called: University Hall Miracast
You can check if your device can do this here:
Essentially, your device will need to be relatively new.
Android: o/s 4.2 Jellybean or newer.
Windows: Windows 8.1 or newer.
