Traditional HDMI & VGA Don't Fit Anymore

Traditional HDMI and VGA cables are outdated for your modern offices and classrooms. Not only are the wires messy, they simply cannot keep up with the modern collaboration's needs. Wireless HDMI technologies has been in the market for almost a decade now, but is growing abruptly since 2021 due to the trending hybrid working schedule offered by many organizations, so it is critical for you to make sure your offices and classrooms are ready for the new world.

Here are the important information and considerations for choosing a right solution that can improve the engagement in your offices and classrooms.

AeriCast is the most affordable and extensible Wireless Presentation solution with built-in Digital Signage platform.

Why Use Wireless HDMI Solution?

No clutter & no hassle
Your office space is sleek, but having wires hanging in the conference rooms is not. Hosting a meeting can be stressful already and no one likes the hassle of finding the right cable to plug in or making sure the HDMI adapter is handy since many modern laptops, including Mac, don't have HDMI port anymore.
More flexible for different presentation scenarios
Some wireless presentation solutions, including AeriCast, allows the presenter to cast the content to multiple screens simultaneously for the space with more audiences like a conference event, and allow multiple presenters to cast different contents to the same screen simultaneously for a side-by-side view.
Expand the collaboration to the huddle rooms, break rooms, and more
Don't let the traditional conference room limit your team's creativity. Create a more inspiring and relaxing environment where people can brainstorm and discuss using the screen more freely without being chained by the HDMI cable.

Things to Consider When Choosing a Wireless HDMI/Presentation Solution

What devices are supported?
People may present from their laptops, tablets and even phones nowadays. For exampling, teachers may present from their iPads for greater classroom interactions and engagement, instead of being tied to the laptops at the desk. It is also very important to know if the solution is easy to use and offers a consistent user experience across different devices to eliminate the support complexity and user confusion. With AeriCast, you simply go to the https://present.aericast.com and input the 4 digit present code to start your presentation immediately.
Will you have hybrid meetings?
Many organizations offer hybrid working schedule and, oftentimes, host meeting onsite with people joining remotely. Allowing the remote attendees to present their content to the onsite screen in the conference room easily and securely can hugely improve the hybrid collaboration experience. While some Wireless HDMI solutions require the presenters to be in the same local network, AeriCast allows people from anywhere in the world to present on the onsite screen as long as the 4 digit presenter code is provided, and the content is always encrypted and secure.
Why not MiraCast, ChromeCast or AirPlay?
These solutions are targeted to the consumer users, not the professional spaces. These solutions oftentimes add more unnecessary complexity to the IT support team, and frustrate the users due to the inconsistent user experience when using the devices with different platforms.
AeriCast is easy-to-use and supports Windows, Mac, iOS, Android devices and more with the consistent user experience.
