Prince Technologies deploys Crestron AirMedia systems to allow presenters to connect their devices wirelessly for presentation via Crestron's AirMedia system. Crestron AirMedia will allow presenters to share content wirelessly from any laptop, tablet or smart phone that uses a Windows or Mac operating system and is on the wireless network.  Newer model AirMedias have two network ports allowing presenters to be on the private or public wireless network without compromising network security. 


To connect to your AirMedia device, select your device and follow the steps below.


From a PC

Open a web browser on a computer on the same network as the AirMedia, and navigate to the IP address ( #.#.#.# ) shown on the display device. The welcome screen is displayed.

6.To stop mirroring your screen, open the Control Center, tap the Screen Mirroring button (it should now be highlighted and show the name of the device you’re mirroring on) and then tap “Stop Mirroring” at the bottom of the window that opens up. (On an iPad, you’ll have to tap the AirPlay button, toggle off Mirroring and then tap “iPad” on the list of devices.)
