One of the many things I like about crowdbeamer is that it’s so easy to use in any meeting room setup. Especially when traveling from one meeting location to the next, that comes in very handy. All I need to do is take my crowdbeamer with me, and connect it to my presentation laptop whenever I start presenting.

So far, I haven’t yet come across a setup that doesn’t work with my crowdbeamer. Lately, I’ve been using crowdbeamer a few times in meeting rooms equipped with an Apple TV. And it must be said that using Apple TV with crowdbeamer works really well. Let me tell you a bit more about this exciting combination, and show you why Apple TV and crowdbeamer make a good couple for business meetings.

Using Apple TV as a wireless screen mirroring device

You probably know Apple TV best for streaming video or sharing pictures via Airplay to your big TV screen at home. But since Airplay has a screen mirroring option, Apple TV is getting quite popular in meeting rooms as well. Many business apps (including PowerPoint, Keynote and several internet browsers) automatically activate Airplay mirroring. That makes it a breeze to present wirelessly from an iPad, iPhone or MacBook, and display your content on the TV screen connected to the Apple TV set-top box.

Using Apple TV makes it a breeze to present wirelessly from any iOS or macOS device.

Using Apple TV with crowdbeamer: wireless presentation benefits for everybody

What makes Apple TV even more interesting for business meetings is that you can easily switch presenters. All that is needed is to wirelessly connect via AirPlay and take over from the previous presenter. There is simply no chance of any hassle with cables.

Getting rid of cables makes life easier for everybody, there’s no doubt about that. However, meeting room cables are not my biggest concern when I’m giving a presentation. Far more important to me are questions such as

  • How do I make this meeting productive for everybody?
  • How do I let my audience capture my message, and complete it with personal insights?
  • How do I enable my audience to take my message with them once this meeting is over?

That’s precisely why using Apple TV with crowdbeamer makes so much sense. Crowdbeamer brings the benefits of wireless presentation to all meeting participants and enables presenters to create more impact with their message. Isn’t that what all of us are looking after, whenever we give a presentation?

So how to use Apple TV with crowdbeamer?

Using Apple TV with crowdbeamer is a piece of cake. All you need to do is connect Apple TV over HDMI to crowdbeamer, and crowdbeamer will take your presentation content straight to the laptops, tablets, and smartphones of all meeting participants.

And if you also want to have your presentation displayed on the TV screen, that’s possible as well. Just connect crowdbeamer’s VIDEO OUT port to the TV screen over HDMI, and you’re all set.

By mirroring your presentation content directly to all laptops, tablets, and smartphones in the meeting room, crowdbeamer boosts interaction and keeps everybody engaged. Using the crowdbeamer app, all meeting participants can capture your content in Full HD quality and complete it with notes. They can store all that on their device and sync it to the cloud – never again having to look for lost meeting notes.

Most important of all: meetings participants can take your message with them once the meeting is over, and share it with others.

For me, that’s the most convincing reason to use crowdbeamer during business meetings.
