Mirroring
Assist

Mirroring360 offers various features and tools to facilitate large-deployments by schools and corporations.

Mirroring Assist (Pat. Pending)

Mirroring Assist is an easy way to connect a device to a computer for Mirroring. It solves 2 common deployment problems:

  1. If the device and the computers (often connected to projectors or whiteboards) are on separate subnets or VLAN’s, the device’s auto discovery cannot find the target computers.
  2. On a single subnet, if there are many mirroring receivers, the device’s auto discovery process can be very long and slow to populate the mirroring receiver list.

With Mirroring360, users can connect the device to the target computer by identifying the computer directly via either a QR code or a Meeting ID. Using direct identification the device and the computer do not have to be on the same subnet; as long as they are route-able, they can be connected via either a quick QR code scan or specifying a Meeting ID. Also, Mirroring360 provides the ability to disable Bonjour and Chrome broadcast, so that it does not jam up the network and the user will only see the computer he/she wishes to mirror to (instead of a long mirroring receiver list).

Here are the steps to connect via Mirroring Assist:

  1. Connect your device and computer to your school or corporate network (if they are on different networks / VLANS, please check with your IT to ensure they are route-able)
  2. Ensure Mirroring360 is running on your Windows or Mac computer. You should see it in your system tray.
  3. On the “General” tab, click on the “Mirroring Assist” button. The QR code window should pop up and the Mirroring ID underneath it.
