AirMedia enables you to connect to a display screen or projector without the need for a cable; it allows you to connect wirelessly from a laptop or mobile device ( if connected to the Unistaff or Eduroam Wifi)
It is installed in lecture theatres at Kedleston Road and is being rolled out to other teaching rooms. It is also available in Meeting Rooms that have Mercury Units installed. If it is available there will be an AirMedia option on the touch panel in the room.
