Information about and Instructions for presenting wirelessly with Ditto
Ditto is a software product that facilitates wireless video connections between customer computers and installed AV hardware.
Engineering IT is currently using Ditto as a universal wireless presentation solution. This allows Windows PCs, Apple OSX PCs, and Apple iOS devices to connect to the Apple TVs.
While Android devices are not currently supported with Ditto, we are investigating a few different options to allow for this. We are anticipating a vendor based solution to allow miracast to Apple TVs; however, this would likely only be supported on 4th generation Apple TV devices. Initial hardware testing is also underway with a different wireless receiver that may also allow most Android based devices to connect wirelessly.
Ditto is currently available in select Engineering IT supported rooms:
Wireless receivers configured to work with Ditto will display on-screen instructions similar to the following image:
Note: If your device is not compatible with the receiver you try to connect to, you will receive a non-compatibility message.
To get help with Ditto please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to include which room you are trying to connect to and what the device you are connecting from is.
