Airtame is an all-in-one wireless screen sharing solution that makes it easy to present wirelessly on your screens from almost any device. We’ve created an integration (currently in beta for testing purposes only) that works with Airtame to help you display your ScreenCloud digital signage content on screens powered by Airtame 2 devices when they are not in active use.
This article will explain how to set up your Airtame 2 device with ScreenCloud.
Section I: How to Set up Your Device
1. Powering up Your Airtame 2
1.1. Unpack your Airtame box, inside there should be a dual power cable, adapter and Airtame 2 device.
1.2. Locate the dual power cable, then plug in the HDMI cord into your TV or projector.
1.3. Next plug in the power side of the USB C cable into the power adapter and then connection side of the USB C cable into your Airtame 2 device.
Note: Your Airtame 2 device cannot be powered directly from the TV or projector as it requires a higher amount of power than a TV or projector can provide, so using the power adapter is recommended. The power cable also cannot be extended because it will underpower the device.
1.4. Next wait for the device to power up and you should see this landing page:
