The AM-101 Air Media includes all the wireless presentation features for multiple platforms found in the AM-100 including PC, Mac, Android and iOS support. The AM-101 Air Media also includes a special new feature regarding iOS devices (which cannot be publically display until Apple and Crestron finalize legal details) but we can share this information over a live demonstration. So request a live demo of the new Crestron Air Media AM-101 and learn more about this great wireless presentation device. With AirMedia™ anyone can walk into a room and wirelessly present PowerPoint®, Excel®, Word and PDF documents, as well as photos, on the room display from their personal iOS® or Android™ mobile device. MacBook® and PC laptops can be connected seamlessly as well, making presentations from most any device fast and easy. There are no wires to hook up, no complicated settings to configure, and no AV or control system is required. Simply connect via the local Wi-Fi® network and start sharing content from your portable device.
Bring your own device to a meeting or collaboration session and share your content through the big screen without hooking up any wires. AirMedia supports Windows® and OS X® computers, as well as Apple® iOS and Android mobile devices. Presenters using a Mac® or PC can connect to AirMedia without any special software installed, while iPad® and other mobile device users need only download the free AirMedia app from the iTunes® App Store or Google Play™.
AirMedia can present Microsoft® Office documents (PowerPoint, Word, Excel), as well as PDFs and photos, from a smartphone or tablet device. Open the document in AirMedia and it is shared on the room display. Deliver dynamic and interactive presentations by simply paging through as you would any other application. There's no more being tied to a laptop or podium. You can even share your apps using the "Shot&Show" feature. Simply take a screen shot and AirMedia will show it.
When using a PC or Mac with AirMedia your entire desktop is shared. Anything you see on your desktop will be sent to the display. Give a presentation or collaborate on a project ... AirMedia will share anything. You can even share dynamic content such as videos, supporting frame rates of 15 fps and beyond.
Imagine 32 devices all connected and ready to share, but instead of a clutter of cables entangled across the tabletop or floor, there are just people and their Wi-Fi enabled devices. AirMedia lets up to 32 users connect at once, switching from one device to the next for seamless collaboration on the fly.
Using Quad View mode, up to four sources can be displayed simultaneously, enabling users to compare and contrast different content on screen at once without having to toggle back and forth.
The onscreen presentation is only part of the AirMedia experience. Using Remote View mode, participants and spectators can view the presentation through their own Web browsers. Remote View displays the presentation as static images, which can be refreshed on demand or set to refresh automatically every few seconds. Users can even save images of the presentation to their personal device for later review.
Presenting with AirMedia is simple using intuitive Play, Pause, and Stop buttons that appear right on your device's screen. Clicking the Play button selects your device as the presentation source, sending whatever is on your screen to the room display. When done presenting, just click the Stop button to stop displaying your device.
While presenting, it is often necessary to navigate away from your presentation to find some other related content. AirMedia lets you pause the presentation, freezing the current image on screen so others can continue to view it while you look through your personal files and emails. Once you've located the new content and brought it up on your device, simply click Play to resume the presentation.
To accommodate a full range of presentation environments, users, and IT preferences, AirMedia offers several ways for a presenter to connect:
Pairing AirMedia with a Crestron Connected projector or flat-panel display offers a seamless presentation solution. The AirMedia gateway communicates directly over the network with the display device, turning it on when a user connects, and shutting it down after the last user disconnects. Controls are also provided for turning the display on and off manually.
At just over an inch thick, the compact AirMedia gateway device fits easily above a projector or behind a flat panel display. A surface mounting bracket is included for attachment to a wall or ceiling, with HDMI® and VGA/analog audio outputs provided for connection to the display device. AirMedia connects to existing Ethernet infrastructure and takes advantage of your organization's Wi-Fi network, affording an optimal wireless interface for laptops and mobile devices.
AirMedia isn't limited to small, single-display applications. It can be used with DigitalMedia™, CaptureLiveHD™, Crestron RL™ and other AV systems to provide a wireless option alongside DM®, HDMI, and other interfaces. AirMedia can also be controlled and monitored as part of a complete Crestron control system using a touch screen, wireless remote, mobile device or Crestron Fusion® Enterprise Management Software.
To facilitate a user-friendly experience, AirMedia provides a customizable home screen that appears on the room display to welcome meeting participants as they enter the room. The welcome screen can display the company logo and room name along with easy to follow instructions, enabling presenters to connect their devices and start presenting quickly for maximum productivity.
