1. How to Set up Your Airtame 2 Device for Digital Signage
Powering up Your Airtame 2
1.1.1. Unpack your Airtame box, inside there should be a dual power cable, adapter, and Airtame 2 device.
1.2.1. Locate the dual power cable, then plug in the HDMI cord into your TV or projector.
1.3.1. Next plugin the power side of the USB C cable into the power adapter and then the 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.
