Solstice allows an unlimited number of meeting participants to easily share content from laptops and mobile devices to a meeting room display, improving collaboration and decision-making.
To start sharing to a Solstice display, first make sure you're connected to the Wi-Fi or Ethernet network in the room. Next, first-time users will need to download the Solstice app by following the instructions on the display. Open a web browser, navigate to the display's IP address and download the Solstice app. You can complete these process from any Windows, Mac iOS, or Android device and do not need admin rights to do so.
When you launch the app, select a display name and enter the IP address if required, then enter the screen key visible on the display to complete the connection.
Once connected, choose what you'd like to share to the display. Options include streaming your full desktop, sharing individual application windows, or choosing one or more media files saved on your device. Each user can share additional content at any time or toggle to the control panel to move and control content on the display using the drag and drop user interface.
Solstice provides the same intuitive user interface on every device, making it easy to connect, share and collaborate around content on the Solstice display.
