AirPlay Version 2 Powered by Kramer VIA GO

PC and Mac

1. Select AirPlay from the podium control unit. Make sure your computer’s WiFi is connected to JASPERNET. This new system allows you to present any mobile device. You can still connect to AirPlay the same way as before. AirParrot does not work with AirPlay, so AirParrot users should use this method to connect, while Mac users can use the previous way of connecting.

2. Open a web browser and in the address bar enter go.manhattan.edu/airplay. At the top of the list of available connections you will see the prompt asking to Install VIA. Select Install VIA and it will proceed to download the install file. Run the install file and follow the included instructions to complete the installation. 

Hint: You will only have to install this on your device once.

4. A max of 2 devices may be displayed at once. Note that you can only present using AirPlay on one device only.

5. Once the VIA app is done installing, you can simply select Join for the Room that you wish to connect to. Note that you can also use the Gateway Name/Group filters to find the room. Selecting Join will automatically launch the app that you previously installed. You will notice that the Room Name will be automatically filled in. Make sure to enter a Nick Name that will easily identify who is presenting. After selecting Login, then you will be asked to enter a four digit code, which will appear on the screen. When you are ready to present, select Present on the Menu that appears. You can see who else is connected by selecting Participants. Make sure to log out of the app when done.

Mobile Devices iOS/Android

1. Select AirPlay on the podium control unit. You can still connect to AirPlay the same way as before. This new system allows you to present any mobile device.

3. Before connecting, make sure that your device’s date and time are set correctly, and that your device’s operating system is up to date. This can help avoid issues when connecting. Older and outdated devices may not be supported.

4. Once it is downloaded, navigate to your web browser and enter go.manhattan.edu/airplay. You can also do this by selecting “Connect to Wireless Display” in the Featured Links section of the Glance MC app. You can either search the list for the room you are in manually or using the Gateway Name/Group filters. Once you select Join, it will automatically launch the app and enter in the Room Name. Make sure to enter a Nick Name that will easily identify who is presenting. Select Join and enter the four digit room code.

5. Select Present once you are logged in. Note that the VIA GO system cannot present your iOS outside of the app itself. Once you exit the app on iOS, you will be disconnected and will have to reconnect. You do not have to worry about this if you use AirPlay to connect your iOS device. With Android, exiting the app will not disconnect unless you quit the app. Force quitting the app on both devices can often mitigate connectivity issues that you may encounter.

6. A maximum of 2 devices may be displayed at once for VIA and AirPlay connections. 

Hint: Note that you can only present using AirPlay on one device only.

7. Within the VIA app, you can access many different tools such as a web browser, Google Drive, iCloud, Photos and more. Google Drive only allows you to present certain files such as PDF, JPG, and MP4 only. For better streaming, it is better to send the YouTube link to the device for less lag.

8. When you are done presenting on your device, remember to log out of the app by selecting Log Off.
