To get started

AirPlay for iOS devices

  • Use the control system to select "Apple TV" as the active input. You will see the AirPlay instructions on the screen including the name of the Apple TV (Room number) to connect to.
  • On your iOS device, Swipe to show Control Center and enable both Bluetooth and WiFi
  • In Control Center, Tap AirPlay
  • Tap the name of the classroom Apple TV you wish to AirPlay to such as "HARP 1234"
  • Switch Mirroring On
  • A code will appear on the classroom projector, enter this code on your iOS device to connect
  • Your screen should now be mirroring
  • To disconnect, simply turn off AirPlay from your iOS device.

AirPlay for MacBooks

  • Use the control system to select "Apple TV" as the active input. You will see the AirPlay instructions on the screen including the name of the Apple TV (Room number) to connect to.
  • Enable WiFi and Bluetooth on your Mac
  • Click the AirPlay icon in the menu bar, then choose the name of Apple TV (such has HARP 1234) under "Connect to AirPlay Display." The icon is blue when your Mac is using an AirPlay display.
  • Or use Displays preferences: Choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Displays, then choose the Apple TV from the AirPlay Display menu at the bottom of the window.
 
Note: While using AirPlay to wirelessly connect your iOS device or Mac to the classroom audio visual system is possible DoIT highly encourages the use of the HDMI or VGA connection with the appropriate adapter to display your device. This ensures a reliable connection to the system without the risk of interference in the wireless spectrum environment.
