Wireless Projection

Share content from devices anywhere in the classroom to in-room screens. 

Technology Overview

An instructor or student's device is connected to the RIT wireless network and linked to the wireless projection receiver using a room URL and unique meeting code. Content can be shared from the device to in-room screens without needing to be connected by wires to the teaching station. Additional features may be available depending on the brand of wireless projection receiver available in the room.

Use Case and Benefits

  • Present content while walking around the room for better student engagement.
  • Have students share back project and group work to the rest of the class without leaving their seats.
  • Skip using adapters/dongles and share content from devices that don't have connection ports for the wires on the teaching station (HDMI, USB-C).

Accessing the Technology

Wireless projection receivers are built into teaching stations in select classrooms and auditoriums. Wireless projection technologies used at RIT include Mersive Solstice, Crestron Air Media, and Extron ShareLink.

The wireless projection availability can be controlled from the teaching station touch panel. Instructions for getting started are displayed on in-room screen(s) once the device is activated by the instructor on the touch panel. You may need to install an app on your device to leverage all features of wireless projection.
