Even though Airtame is a solution used for streaming and digital signage, it can be used with existing conferencing solutions to improve the meeting experience.

There are several different ways in which you can incorporate Airtame into your meeting room, alongside already existing video conferencing equipment.

Airtame in video conferencing setups with no codec

This option applies to use cases where it is not possible to plug the Airtame device into the video conferencing hardware. These setups are also referred to as BYOD, referring to the fact that the user runs the conferencing call on their own machine and connects the peripherals (mic, camera, speakers etc.) to their own laptop.
These are the steps to follow for this set up:

  1. Install the video conferencing solution/peripherals following their provided manual.
  2. Plug the Airtame device into the TV and install the Airtame device following the setup instructions for Airtame 1 / Airtame 2.
  3. Connect your PC to the video conferencing hardware.
  4. Start the video conferencing application on your PC (ex. Microsoft Teams / Skype for Business , Zoom, Google Meet).
  5. Once you open your video conferencing application, start sharing the whole computer desktop or just a selected window to the TV, using the Airtame application.

In this case, we do not advise to play the audio from the Airtame-equipped display, as this will add a 1-second delay and make the call less fluent. It's recommended to rather opt for playing the audio on the laptop or on an external speaker connected to the laptop, by choosing to stream without sound in the Airtame application.

Airtame integrated with video conferencing codecs

Many dedicated video conferencing devices also known as codecs have HDMI input ports, that Airtame can be attached to. Doing that will let users share their screen wirelessly with Airtame to the TV that the codec is connected to, and even into video meetings when they are running on the codec. Examples of devices supporting this are the Poly studio X series, Lenovo Hub 500, Cisco SX series, most LifeSize devices and many more. Some systems that do not natively have an HDMI input port, can achieve this through the use of HDMI capture devices.
These are the steps to follow for this set up:

  1. Install the video conferencing solution following their provided manual and connect the necessary equipment (ex. camera, microphone or speakers).
  2. Install the Airtame device following the setup instructions for Airtame 1 / Airtame 2 and plug the Airtame device into the video conferencing solution.
  3. Start the video conference and then open the Airtame application on your PC if you wish to start sharing your PC's screen to the video call/ TV screen.

In this setup, we advise you use the Sleep Schedule feature for your Airtame device. Choose the 'When not in use' option, and then the 'Instant' option, in order for your Airtame device to turn off immediately after you stop sharing your screen.

In this way, you will be able to continue or end the video call without Airtame staying active and sending its HDMI signal to the video conferencing solution.
