Wireless Display Projection

Many OHIO classrooms and meeting spaces let you use wi-fi to send video and audio from a laptop or mobile device to the room's flat panel or projector. If a display supports wireless projection, connection instructions will appear on the unit's startup screen when you turn it on.

How to Access

Login

OHIO currently uses two different display projection technologies: Solstice and AirMedia. Both require you to download and install an app the first time you connect.

AirMedia is available in many buildings at Ohio University.
