What is AirMedia?
AirMedia is a wireless HD presentation system which simplifies and improves classroom presentations and collaboration.
Using AirMedia you can wirelessly present from your laptop on the room display. This can be used by lecturers to free them from wires and the lecture podium or it can be used by students if the lecturer wishes them to give their own presentations in class.
Airmedia also supports wireless presentation from mobile and tablets though with a limited feature set.
