How to Use AirMedia on Mac Devices


AirMedia is a new feature in select classrooms on campus that allow you to wirelessly project your computer screen.


Mac OS X 

Web browser

Note: You will need to download Soundflower to get audio to transmit from your computer. Therefore, it is recommended that for Mac devices you should just use AirPlay since it is made by Apple and has full compatibility with Mac devices.

Soundflower can be found at this link (only for Yosemite and above): Soundflower Link 


  1. To get started with AirMedia, select the AirMedia button found on the Crestron unit.
  2. There, you will see an AirMedia screen pop up on the projector.
  3. At the top of this screen, you will find an IP address, which you will then type into your browser's address. Note that this IP address is not static, meaning it will not remain the same.
  4. You will see two download buttons: one for Windows, and one for Mac.
  5. Select the Mac button and proceed to download the executable file.
  6. First open the .dmg file, then drag the file into the applications folder.
  7. Now you can find the file in your launchpad where you can run the file.
  8. Since the software is downloaded, you do not have to repeat these steps when reconnecting at a different time, you just have to run the file again.
  9. It will then give you the option to proceed onto connecting to the projector via AirMedia. 
  10. Enter the four digit code found on the screen, and then you should be able to present. After each use, this code will reset.
