Presenting with iPad (1)

13 05 2013

With an Apple TV you can use Apple’s AirDisplay feature to display the screen of any iOS device on a TV.

If you don’t need all the further functionalities of Apple TV there is a low cost alternative for e.g. displaying Keynote presentations on a TV or on a wall with the help of a beamer.

To do so you need

  • Apple Digital AV Adapter
    available in the Apple Store for iOS devices with 30-Pin or Lightning adapter
  • HDMI cable
  • HDMI capable TV / Beamer

Keynote presentations …

Connect the iPad with a HDMI capable beamer instead of a TV.
The app

Apple Keynote Remote

installed on an iPhone allows you to control Keynote presentations. The iPhone works like a remote control for the iPad, which displays a Keynote presentation. As you may know, you can add notes to each slide of a Keynote presentation. These notes can be displayed on the iPhone while presenting the slides. To change from slide to slide you use the swipe gesture.

The Alternative …

A disadvantage of any adapter connected to the iPad is the immobility of the device.
The alternative is an Apple TV connected to a HDMI capable TV and your local WiFi network.

Keep in mind that if you decide to purchase an Apple TV you may additionally need the Apple Digital AV Adapter to connect to a beamer.
