Wireless Displays

Four 32" displays surround the columns on the Starbucks side of the Study Commons. The two nearest the stairs each have an AppleTV ("TechPoint East" & "TechPoint South") and the two near Castellaw each have a Microsoft Wireless Display Adapter ("TechPointNorth" & "TechPointWest").

Apple devices use AirPlay and Windows/Android devices use MiraCast. Both use peer-to-peer wireless networks. *Airbear not required. *Cables not required.

Compatibility is dependent on having minimum required software and hardware. Click icons below for more details.

Generally, requirements are the following:

  1. Software (or newer):
    • Windows 8.1
    • Android 4.4 KitKat
    • OSX 10.10 Yosemite
    • iOS 8
  2. Hardware (too many variables, but the newer the better)

Select your OS:

Windows Android OSX iOS

Other information:

  • TV control button is behind the left side. Press to turn on. Press again to change inputs. Press and hold to turn off.
  • If the AppleTV refuses your connection, ask TechPoint staff to "Restart" it. They have a remote.
  • Wireless solution not working? You may also connect via the side HDMI input.

IMPORTANT SECURITY NOTES:

  • Devices must operate in the 5 GHz range to avoid interference with Airbear.
  • Users may only display public information via the adapter.
