Hey guys,
I was talking with one of my colleagues today about how we can do demonstrations of a web app to customers. While we got to many customers and can plug into their big screen or projector to show 3-4 people usually, often they don't have either of these and everyone has to look at a laptop screen crowded around an operator. We were thus talking about the largest screen. Another idea I had was, could we perhaps screen share to multiple tablets so they can watch what is going on, is this called screen casting? We could get say a Samsung 12.1" tablet for each person and they can watch whats on the laptop screen? I know you can do this with PCs using join.me or team viewer but perhaps something WiFi direct based?

Ideas appreciated!

Dont know of any that can support multiple clients.

It only supports one client but Spashtop is the best for local network based stuff - you have to pay additional if you want to do it over 3g.

Apple has the reflector app that will do this for upto 4 iPads/iPhones (etc.) if they are all on the same wifi network?

you could try VLC media player, the original purpose for the was for making and receiving multicast media transmissions etc.


Edit:
just had a quick look in the VLC settings and yip you can do a multicast stream of your desktop etc. so then you'll just need something to catch the stream hmmm maybe VLC mobile if there is such a thing lol

Screen Casting is where you record yourself using an application with a voice-over and then distribute it via video.

You can use Widi/Mirrorcast to broadcast from a laptop/android device to a smart display (that supports receving widi/mirrorcast) or to a display with an adaptor.

You can also buy a portable projector and just use that.

You can also use DLNA in windows 8.1 (to broadcast your screencast).  And you can also get software that will allow you to do live screen casting (Microsoft used to do an application, but they stopped a while back).

Also, a good utility is ZoomIt from Microsoft - allows you to draw on the screen while doing the presentation.
