Pin Code Connect
This feature ensures that only users in the room watching the screen can connect and start streaming.
When enabled, the Airtame app will ask for a 4-digit code that is shown on the Airtame home screen. A new code is generated each time. Note that you can enable Pin code to connect through Airtame's advanced settings.
Share the same content to multiple screens at the same time
With the Airtame app, you are able to stream to multiple screens simultaneously. You can do that by starting a stream to one screen and then using the button + Add screen. By choosing from the Airtame app list or typing their name or IP address in the search bar, you can find the screens you want to stream to.
Once you minimize the app, the control bar will show up, where it will allow you to choose between Share Window and Share Screen, stream with or without sound, and stop streaming. Please note that if you stop the streaming from the control bar, the streaming to all of the screens will be stopped.
Considerations when presenting to multiple Airtame devices
Availability: The source PC and the receiving devices must be on the same network.
Distance: You can expect to achieve full range throughout your existing network coverage. Just keep in mind that both the connection between the Dongle and your WiFi network and the connection from your PC to your WiFi network need to have a good connection to avoid reducing the streaming experience. E.g. Enough signal bars.
Network: The amount of data transferred will increase with every stream added, even if it is the same content.
